Abstract Details


To evaluate the safety and efficacy of Small incision refractive lenticule extraction for treatment of pediatric high myopic anisometropia and contact lens(CL) intolerance in 18 children.


roaya vision centers Alexandria Egypt


The prospective, noncomparative interventional case series comprised 18 eyes of 18 children aged 5 to 12 years with high myopic anisometropia and amblyopia who were unable to use CL and glasses. SMILE was performed with sedation or general anesthesia., surgery was followed by a half-day patching of the dominant eye. Main outocome measures were cycloplegic refraction, , visual acuity (UCVA, BSCVA., topographic stability and binocular vision outcome over one year follow up.


The mean preop. spherical equivalent (SE) refraction was -9.96 diopters (D) and the mean postop. SE -1.48 D. The mean preop UCVA 0.03 increased to 0.58 postop. The mean preop. BSCVA was 0.56 and changed to 0.72 postop. All the eyes had no line lost in BSCVA, 8 eyes had one line gained, 4 and 6 eyes had two and three lines gained, resp. All eyes showed topographic stability.


SMILE is effective and safe methods which may reduce high myopic anisometropia, improve visual acuity and binocular vision in children when CL intolerance.
