Laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis (LASIK) with a mechanical microkeratome compared to LASIK with a femtosecond laser for LASIK in adults with myopia or myopic astigmatism.

Cochrane Database Syst Rev 2020 04 7;4:CD012946. Epub 2020 Apr 7.

Universidad Anáhuac México, Campus Norte, Centro de Investigación en Ciencias de la Salud (CICSA), Facultad de Ciencias de la Salud, Av. Universidad Anáhuac 46, Huixquilucan, Mexico, Mexico, 52786.

Background: Laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis (LASIK) is a surgical procedure that corrects refractive errors. This technique creates a flap of the outermost parts of the cornea (epithelium, bowman layer, and anterior stroma) to expose the middle part of the cornea (stromal bed) and reshape it with excimer laser using photoablation. The flaps can be created by a mechanical microkeratome or a femtosecond laser. Read More

Astigmatism Correction Using SMILE.

Asia Pac J Ophthalmol (Phila) 2019 Sep-Oct;8(5):391-396

Department of Ophthalmology, Hong Kong Sanatorium & Hospital, Hong Kong, China.

Small incision lenticule extraction (SMILE) was introduced in the recent decade for the treatment of myopia and myopic astigmatism. This flap-free technique has a high efficacy and safety profile and also carries potential advantages over laser in situ keratomileusis such as a better corneal biomechanical stability, reduction in dry eyes rate, and the avoidance of flap complications. However, there have been concerns regarding the precision of astigmatism correction that undercorrection has been reported to be apparent. Read More

Comparison of Visual, Refractive and Ocular Surface Outcomes Between Small Incision Lenticule Extraction and Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis for Myopia and Myopic Astigmatism.

Ophthalmol Ther 2019 Sep 19;8(3):373-386. Epub 2019 Jul 19.

Department of Ophthalmology, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Pittsburgh, USA.

Laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) is the most commonly performed laser refractive surgical technique worldwide for the treatment of myopia and myopic astigmatism. In recent years, small incision lenticule extraction (SMILE) has emerged as a promising alternative to LASIK, requiring only a single femtosecond laser to create an intrastromal lenticule, which is then removed via a small incision. The technique obviates the need for a corneal flap. Read More
