To describe techniques (FLEx and SMILE) for performing all-in-one Femtosecond Laser Refractive Surgery, without using an excimer laser.Methods
The VisuMax femtosecond laser is used to carve out a refractive lenticule from within the corneal stroma, and then the lenticule is physically removed, either by creating and lifting a flap of the cornea, or by extracting it from a small incision.Results
The technique gives results which are stable, effective, safe and predictable.Conclusions
All-In-One Femtosecond Laser Refractive Surgery is a new technique of performing corneal laser refractive surgery. It has clinical, practical and economic benefits over a traditional two-laser solution.
