Abstract Details

Purpose:

Evaluation of clinical and refractive outcomes of Capless SMILE Technique to correct the residual refractive error after ReLEx®Smile.

Setting:

Eye Center Cologne, Germany

Methods:

With Capless SMILE Technique a new intrastromal lenticule is prepared with the Visumax-Femtolaser (ZEISS) while taking advantage of the original SMILE incision and original SMILE interface. 8 consecutive eyes were treated with Capless SMILE to correct low degree of residual refractive error after ReLEx®Smile (range: -0,75 to -1,5 Diopter (D)). Mean spherical equivalent (SE) of refractive error was -1,1 D preoperatively. Outcome measurements include visual and refractive results.

Results:

No intraoperative complications occurred. All eyes were follow-up for at least 6 months postoperatively. Postoperative SE of refractive error was between +0,25 D in all cases at last follow-up. Postoperative uncorrected distance visual acuity (UDVA) was equal with preoperative best corrected distance visual acuity (CDVA) in all cases. Night vision problems have not been reported postoperatively.

Conclusions:

Capless SMILE Technique is a new effective intrastromal approach for the correction of residual error after ReLEx®Smile with excellent refractive and visual outcomes. With Capless SMILE the biomechanical advantages of SMILE are well preserved.
