Hyperopic LASIK (H-LASIK) is performed in the form of annular ablation in the peripheral cornea to increase the steepness of central part of the cornea to achieve the desired refractive effect. Most of published studies indicate reasonable predictability for low to moderate hyperopic corrections up to +4 D in most series , but with less satisfactory results for the correction of higher order treatments(1,3,4).
Aim of the work: Evaluation of the results and complications of LASIK in hypermetropic patients.
 Patient and Methods: cross-sectional data analysis of consecutive Retrospective treated 100 eyes from 50 consecutive hyperopic patients  were analyzed. Excimer ablation for all eyes was performed using a mechanical microkeratome ( Moria) and an Allegretto excimer laser platform.  the data was analyzed according to refractive outcome in terms of refractive predictability, efficacy, and safety.
Results: . More than  90% of the eyes (90 eyes) achieved a postoperative CDVA equal to the preoperative CDVA, No eye lost more than 1 lines of CDVA ,4 eyes gained 1or more line more than CDVA
