Abstract Details


To evaluate safety,efficacy and stability of SMILE 5 year follow up for cases of low Myopia under 3 diopters


Roayah vision center, Alexandria, Egypt


prospective non-comparative case series carried out on 158 myopic eyes treated with SMILE from 2010. UCVA, BSCVA, manifest refraction, higher order aberrations and contrast sensitivity were measured in all cases.


Mean preoperative uncorrected visual acuity (UCVA) was 0.45(range: 0.2-0.6), mean CDVA was 1.0 (range: 0.9-1.5), and SEQ was -2.7 (range: -0.75 to -3.5). All these parameters showed statistically significant change in the postoperative period (P <.01). Mean postoperative UCVA, BSCVA, and SEQ were 1.1 (range: 0.9-1.5), 1.2 (range: 1.0-1.5), and -0.2 (range: -0.5 - +0.75), respectively. a few operativeor postoperative complications were reported


SMILE is a safe and effective procedure with long term refractive stability. SMILE has been proposed as an alternative to LASIK or PRK, while decreasing several risks and complications of such procedures
