Abstract Details


To evaluate the effectiveness of small incision lenticul extraction (SMILE) in high myopia


Refractive Surgery Department of Beyoglu Eye Research and Education Hospital


In this prospective study, 18 patients (26 eyes) with high myopi (>6.00D) myopia were chosen to be performed SMILE procedure randomly. These patients were followed up at 1 month 6 months and 12 months postoperatively and were examined for uncorrected visual acuity (UCVA), best corrected visual acuity (BCVA), manifest refraction, corneal topography


LogMAR uncorrected and corrected distance visual acuity was -0.15 ± 0.12, -0.18 ± 0.08 in the SMILE group 12 months postoperatively. In the SMILE groups 12 months postoperatively 100% of eyes were within 0.5 D of the targeted spherical equivalent correction. Changes of 0.05 ± 0.25 D occurred in manifest refraction from 1 month to 12 months in the SMILE groups. No clinically significant complications occurred in the SMILE group.


The SMILE procedure is good at the safety, efficacy, predictability and stability for the correction of high myopia FINANCIAL INTEREST: NONE
