Abstract Details

Purpose:

To evaluate safety and efficacy of SMILE on follow up more than 1 year

Setting:

Roaya Vision center Alexandria Egypt International femtolaser center Cairo Egypt

Methods:

Prospective non comparative multi center case series carried out on 4834 eyes of 2238 myopic patients treated with femtosecond laser SMILE from 2010. Uncorrected visual acuity (UCVA) , best spectacle corrected visual acuity(BSCVA), manifest refraction and contrast sensitivity were measured in all cases.

Results:

Mean preoperative uncorrected visual acuity (UCVA) was 0 .1 (range: 0.03-0.6), mean corrected distance visual acuity (CDVA) was 0.8 (range: 0.4-1.2), and mean spherical equivalent SEQ was -5 (range: -1.5 to -14). All these parameters showed statistically significant change in the postoperative period (P < .01). Mean postoperative UCVA, BSCVA, and SEQ were 0.88 (range: 0.5-1.2), 0.98 (range: 0.5-1.2), and -0.5 (range: -2.5- +1.75), respectively. a few operative or postoperative complications were reported in our case series.

Conclusions:

SMILE is a safe and effective procedure with long term refractive stability
