Abstract Details


To analyse the results of myopia and myopic astigmatism correction using the newest - only femtosecond laser method- ReLEx Smile.


Mavit Medical Center,Warsaw, Poland


From Decembre 2013 to February 2015 - 66 patients (132 eyes) underwent ReLEx Smile procedure. In this study we included only eyes with follow-up longer than 3 months, that is 60 eyes of 30 patients ( 19 women and 11 men). The follow-up was from 3 to 12 months (average 7 months). The corrected myopia was from -0,75D to -8,5D (average -4,67D0, astigmatism from -0,25D to -2,25D (average -0,9D). Preoperative BCVA was from 0,8 to 1,0. ReLEx Smile, intrastromal lenticule extraction, was performed in local (drops) anesthesy using the femtosecond laser VISUMAX from Carl Zeiss Meditec.


Postoperative UCVA was from 0,7 to 1,0. BCVA from 0,8 to 1,0. There were no BCVA lines lost. The intraoperative complications were: bleeding from limbal corneal vessels in 2 eyes, erosion near the incision in 3 eyes, peripheral lenticule rupture in 1 eye. The postoperative complications were: post-steroids raise of intraocular pressure in 2 eyes, problems with night vision in 1 patient. The dry eye symptoms were very light, postoperative pain very small.


ReLEx Smile is an effective, safe, small-pain method of myopia and myopic astigmatism laser correction. During this period of observation the postoperative refraction was very stable.
