Visual and refractive outcomes of small incision lenticule extraction for the correction of myopia: 1-year follow-up.
Bottom Line: Preoperatively, 1 week, and 1, 3, 6 and 12 months postoperatively, we assessed the safety, efficacy, predictability, stability, corneal endothelial cell loss and the adverse events of the surgery.The endothelial cell density was not significantly changed from 2804±267 cells/mm(2) preoperatively to 2743±308 cells/mm(2) 1 year postoperatively (p=0.12).No vision-threatening complications occurred during the observation period.

Mentions: The change in the manifest spherical equivalent is shown in figure 6. One week, and 1, 3, 6 and 12 months after surgery, the mean manifest spherical equivalent was 0.00±0.32, −0.06±0.21, −0.05±0.28, −0.09±0.25 and −0.05±0.16 D, respectively. Manifest spherical equivalent was decreased, but not significantly, from 0.00±0.35 D 1 week postoperatively, to −0.05±0.16 D 1 year postoperatively (p=0.201, Wilcoxon signed-rank test).
