Suphi Taneri, ASCRS 2022: Results of thin-cap small-incision lenticule extraction
Small-incision lenticule extraction (SMILE) is a laser refractive surgery that has become increasingly popular for the correction of myopia and myopic astigmatism. SMILE has been associated with similar safety, efficacy, and predictability outcomes as laser in situ keratomileuses, with the advantages of increased patient satisfaction and decreased postoperative dry eye. The aims, design and findings of the retrospective study evaluating the influence of a thin cap in SMILE for the correction of myopia or myopic astigmatism is discussed in this touchOPHTHALMOLOGY interview with Dr Suphi Taneri (St. Francis Hospital, Muenster, Germany) as well as what questions remain unanswered and what future studies are planned.
The presentation entitled ‘Results of thin-cap small-incision lenticule extraction’ was presented at the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, April 22-26, 2022
