Abstract

As a relatively new procedure, small incision lenticule extraction (SMILE) is still in its initial stage.Despite the fact that it has shown safety, efficacy, predictability, and stability, the clinical outcomes were diversiform among individuals.How to improve visual quality by designing individualized parameters is one of the researching focuses in corneal refractive surgery.This article reviewed the operative design, such as pluse energy, scanning patterns, cap, incision, optical zone and its influences on surgical results.

Key words:

Small incision lenticule extraction; Operative design; Effects
