Abstract Details

Purpose:

To prospectively compare outcomes between wavefront-guided LASIK and SMILE surgery in the treatment of myopia.�Â�  Outcome measures will include anterior segment ocular coherence tomography, corneal sensation changes, high contrast snellen acuity, low contrast snellen acuity (5 and 25%), safety, predictability, efficacy, higher order aberration analysis and self-reported quality of vision.

Setting:

Stanford University School of Medicine

Methods:

We plan to enroll 70 consecutive patients who will receive SMILE surgery in one eye and wavefront-guided LASIK in their fellow eye. One eye will be treated with wavefront-guided LASIK using the AMO Visx S4 IR excimer laser system and the fellow eye will be treated with SMILE surgery using the Carl Zeiss Visumax femtosecond laser system.�Â�  Eyes will be randomized according to ocular dominance.�Â� 

Results:

We plan to present the initial three-month data at the meeting.

Conclusions:

We hope to demonstrate if there are any significant differences in clinical outcomes between SMILE surgery and wavefront-guided LASIK.
