Roayah eye centre alexandria egypt


Prospective non comparative case series carried out on 93 eyes treated for myopia and myopic astigmatism with SMILE from 2010. UCVA, BSCVA, manifest refraction and contrast sensitivity were measured in all cases.


Mean preoperative uncorrected visual acuity (UCVA) was 0 .1 (range: 0.03-0.6), mean CDVA was 0.8 (range: 0.4-1.2), and 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 and postoperative complications were reported.


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