    Long-term observation of SMILE gives better myopia prognosis

    Postoperative results showed high stability at 5 years; visual acuity remained at 90%



    Measuring parameters, such as stability following refractive procedures, allows us to follow fluctuations in refraction over time. Analysing accuracy is also an opportunity to assess for a fall in emmetropia because of correction.

    Additionally, reviewing efficacy allows us to compare acuity DCVA before surgery. It is the most important indicator that shows the patient’s satisfaction with the result of the operation.

    Long-term observation of SMILE reveals high stability at various degrees of correction of myopia. This allows surgeons who apply this method of treatment to give patients a long-term prognosis.

    Our research shows that in comparison with other, well-known methods like LASIK or PRK, the SMILE method demonstrates an unchanged result for many years. For now, few eyes have been subjected to such a long period of observation, but since this surgery is widely used all over the world, further observations will allow SMILE to take its place in modern refractive surgery.
