Abstract Details


To evaluate safety, efficacy and patient satisfaction of SMILE 7 year follow up


Cornea center. Alexandria Egypt


prospective non comparative case series carried out on 3648 myopic eyes treated with SMILE from 2010, 386 eyes completed 7 year follow-up . UCVA, BSCVA, manifest refraction and contrast sensitivity were measured in all cases. patient satisfaction questionnaire was done.


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 or postoperative complications were reported. 87.4% of patients were very satisfied with the procedure overall according to the questionnaire.
