Renato Ambrósio

Semin Ophthalmol 2019 Jan 21:1-3. Epub 2019 Jan 21.

a Department of Ophthalmology , Instituto de Olhos Renato Ambrósio , Rio de Janeiro , Brazil.

Corneal ectasia has emerged as a serious complication of laser vision correction (LVC) procedures since the first report by Seiler in 1998. Thereby, its prevention has become a major concern for refractive surgeons. Ectasia occurs due to biomechanical decompensation of the stroma, which may be related to a severe impact on corneal structure (i. Read More

Intraocular Pressure After Corneal Refractive Surgery.

Med Arch 2018 Nov;72(5):341-343

Clinic Gjermane e Syrit, Prishtina, Republic of Kosovo.

Introduction: Laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK), a refractive surgery procedure is being performed in a large number among people with refractive errors. In all the people undergoing the procedure, there is a potential risk to misdiagnose the glaucoma disease due to changes in central corneal thickness (CCT). In subjects who have undergone laser refractive interventions, intraocular tension may be lower and underestimated, and this can lead to later detection of glaucoma. Read More

Unwanted Astigmatism and High-order Aberrations One Year after Excimer and Femtosecond Corneal Surgery.

Optom Vis Sci 2018 Nov;95(11):1064-1076

Specialty Eye Hospital Svjetlost, Zagreb, Croatia.

Significance: Small incision lenticule extraction (SMILE) is advanced as the most minimally invasive and least traumatic corneal procedure for correcting refractive errors using a single laser. Although SMILE obtains similar results to femtosecond laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) with spherical myopia, it has deficiencies in astigmatism correction.

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to compare refractive outcomes and high-order aberrations (HOAs) between SMILE and femtosecond LASIK corneal procedures at 1 year post-operative. Read More

Small incision lenticule extraction (SMILE) techniques: patient selection and perspectives.

Clin Ophthalmol 2018 5;12:1685-1699. Epub 2018 Sep 5.

Cornea, Cataract and Refractive Surgery Services, Dr Rajendra Prasad Centre for Ophthalmic Sciences, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India,

Refractive lenticule extraction is becoming the procedure of choice for the management of myopia and myopic astigmatism owing to its precision, biomechanical stability, and better ocular surface. It has similar safety, efficacy, and predictability as femtosecond laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (FS-LASIK) and is associated with better patient satisfaction. The conventional technique of small incision lenticule extraction (SMILE) involves docking, femtosecond laser application, lenticule dissection from the surrounding stroma, and extraction. Read More

Small Incision Lenticule Extraction SMILE - The Future of Refractive Surgery is Here.

Mo Med 2018 Jan-Feb;115(1):82-84

J. Quinten Tuckfield, BS, medical student at Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences.

Small Incision Lenticule Extraction (SMILE) is a relatively new one-step refractive procedure that has recently been approved by the FDA for the treatment of myopia. It is anticipated myopic astigmatism will be FDA-approved in 2019. The SMILE procedure is shown to have similar efficacy, safety, predictability, and stability as current surgical options, such as LASIK, but has been gaining popularity due to fewer potential complications, such as dry eye incidence and greater biomechanical stability, and faster recovery time.

Cont Lens Anterior Eye 2018 Dec 11;41(6):507-512. Epub 2018 Sep 11.

Clinical & Experimental Optometry Research Lab. Center of Physics (Optometry), School of Sciences, University of Minho, Braga, Portugal.

Comparison of corneal biomechanical changes after refractive surgery by noncontact tonometry: small-incision lenticule extraction versus flap-based refractive surgery - a systematic review.

Acta Ophthalmol 2019 Mar 10;97(2):127-136. Epub 2018 Sep 10.

Department of Ophthalmology, Odense University Hospital, Odense, Denmark.

Corneal refractive surgery disrupts corneal integrity and reduces biomechanical stability in consequence of the beneficial refractive alteration. The minimal invasive cap-based refractive procedure, small-incision lenticule extraction (SMILE), has been proposed to affect corneal integrity less than flap-based procedures, due to the fibre-sparing incision of the strong anterior corneal lamellae. Flap-based procedures include laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK), femtosecond laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (FS-LASIK) and femtosecond lenticule extraction (FLEx). Read More
