Abstract Details

Purpose:

To evaluate the visual and refractive outcomes, as well as the reproducability of small Incision lenticule extraction (SMILE) in hyperoic astgmatism

Setting:

Roaya vision center Alexandria Egypt

Methods:

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.

Results:

Eyes of 8 patients 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 UCVA nor BCVA in any of our patients postoperatively.

Conclusions:

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.
