Abstract Details


To evaluate the visual and refractive outcomes, as well as the reproducability of Small Incision Lenticule Extraction (SMILE) in hyperoic astgmatism.


Roaya Vision Center, Alexandria, Egypt


SMILE procedure was performed for patients with hyperopic astigmatism. The preoperative refractive errors, UCVA and BCVA were recorded. The residual refractive error, UCVA and BCVA were recorded up to 1 year postoperatively.


37 eyes underwent SMILE procedure. Mean follow up was 4 months (range 2-6 months). The mean UCVA (Snellen decimal) changed from 0.14 (range, 0.05-0.3) preoperatively to 0.88 (range, 0.7-1) postoperatively. The mean BCVA changed from 0.73 (range, 0.5-0.9) preoperatively to (range, 0.6-0.9) 0.8 at last follow up postoperatively. There was no loss of lines of BCVA in any of our patients postoperatively.


SMILE procedure for the correction of hyperopic astigmatism is a reproducible procedure with good visual outcomes yet it still need optimization and long term follow up is needed.
