[Advances in the research of centration in small incision lenticule extraction].

S T Liu

Zhonghua Yan Ke Za Zhi 2022 Apr;58(4):303-308

Affiliated Eye Hospital of Nanchang University, Nanchang 330006, China.

Small incision lenticule extraction (SMILE) is a new technique that exhibits excellent efficacy, safety and predictability for the correction of myopia and myopic astigmatism. However, one potential limitation of this technique is that the centration during femtosecond laser cutting might be subject to the surgeon's experience and patient's cooperation. To achieve accurate centration in SMILE is the key to obtaining good postoperative visual outcomes. Read More
