Cover Page


The article presents treatment results of the dry eye syndrome after excimer laser refractive surgery (LASIK). This procedure often leads to dry eye symptoms and signs, so there should be a mandatory prescription of lubricative eye drops for up to 3-6 months. For treatment, non-preserved Gilan Comfort containing hyaluronic acid (Russian Federation trade mark) was used. The study included 30 patients after LASIK who received Gilan Comfort 4 times a day for 3 months. Treatment was well tolerated; there were no adverse effects in any of the patients. The treatment results observed in all 30 people consisted in distinct decrease of dry eye symptoms after 3 months of Gilan Comfort instillations after LASIK surgery.
