CONCLUSIONS: Both LASIK flaps and SMILE caps show a significant postoperative rethickening. SMILE corneas present higher optical densities than LASIK corneas in the early postoperative period, with a significant decrease thereafter and up to 3 months. These findings correlate with the delayed visual recovery observed after SMILE. PMID: 32980816 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

VISUAL AND REFRACTIVE OUTCOMES WITH A NEW TOPOGRAPHY-INTEGRATED WAVEFRONT-GUIDED LASIK PROCEDURE. Curr Eye Res. 2020 Sep 09;: Authors: Uceda-Montañés A, Rogers M, Piñero DP Abstract PURPOSE: To evaluate the clinical outcomes of laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) using a new approach for the calculation of the ablation profile based on wavefront vertexing from pupil plane to corneal. METHODS: One hundred eyes of 50 patients (age, 21-41 years) with low and moderate myopia were enrolled in this prospective case series. All of them underwent topography-integrated wavefront-guid...
