SMILE, Topography-Guided LASIK, and Wavefront-Guided LASIK: Review of Clinical Outcomes in Premarket Approval FDA Studies
All three procedures demonstrated excellent outcomes, considering differences in attempted correction between studies. No obvious superiority of one technique over the others was found in astigmatic correction.
Complications and Explantation Reasons in Intracorneal Ring Segments (ICRS) Implantation: A Systematic Review
The complication rate and explantation ratio in segments of the intracorneal ring segments analyzed in the available scientific literature are minimal. Therefore, patient selection, surgery planning, and postoperative follow-up are critical to the success of surgery.
Depth-Dependent Reduction of Biomechanical Efficacy of Contact Lens–Assisted Corneal Cross-linking Analyzed by Brillouin Microscopy
Both CACXL and standard protocol CXL induced significant corneal stiffening primarily concentrated in the anterior cornea. CACXL leads to less stiffening compared with CXL. An attenuated but continuous stiffening effect can be observed through the whole cornea for both CACXL and CXL, although CACXL has a smaller stiffness gradient.
Comparison of FDA-Reported Visual and Refractive Outcomes of the Toric ICL Lens, SMILE, and Topography-Guided LASIK for the Correction of Myopia and Myopic Astigmatism
All three platforms analyzed in this study had excellent efficacy, safety, stability, and accuracy. Stratified analysis revealed that SMILE may be comparable to Toric ICL for patients with high myopia or myopic astigmatism, and SMILE may have a longer visual recovery compared to TG-LASIK than previously indicated.
10-Year Results of Small Incision Lenticule Extraction
This 10-year long-term study demonstrates SMILE to be an effective, stable, and safe procedure for the treatment of myopia and myopic astigmatism.
Long-term Comparison of Combined t-PTK and CXL (Cretan Protocol) Versus CXL With Mechanical Epithelial Debridement for Keratoconus
Epithelial removal with t-PTK during CXL (Cretan protocol) resulted in better visual, refractive, and keratometric outcomes compared with mechanical epithelial debridement over a long-term follow-up.
Intracorneal Ring Segments Implantation Outcomes Using Two Different Manufacturers' Nomograms for Keratoconus Surgery
Both manufacturers' nomograms resulted in statistically significant improvement in most of the parameters analyzed, with greater correction of corneal tomographic astigmatism in the group operated on according to the spherical equivalent/tomographic astigmatism nomogram.
Functional Outcomes and Reading Performance After Combined Implantation of a Small-Aperture Lens and a Segmental Refractive Bifocal Lens
The new concept of a combined implantation of a small-aperture IOL and a segmental-refractive bifocal lens showed good results in far and intermediate distances and functional results at near distance, while causing minimal photic phenomena.
Individually Customized IOL Versus Standard Spherical Aberration-Correcting IOL
With the implantation of an individually optimized aspheric IOL visual performance, especially contrast sensitivity, can be significantly improved compared to a standard aberration-correcting IOL.
Repeatability of Cornea and Sublayer Thickness Measurements Using Optical Coherence Tomography in Corneas of Anomalous Refractive Status
RTVue-XR SD-OCT showed excellent repeatability when generating the pachymetric map in myopic eyes. Measurements, especially for epithelial thickness, were relatively more variable for corneas with keratoconus and those having undergone keratorefractive surgery.
