Study shows corneal vertex normal as optimal optic zone center in small incision lenticule extraction

April 27, 2015

A lenticule center closer to the corneal vertex normal rather than the pupil center yielded better refractive outcomes in small incision lenticule extraction for myopia and myopic astigmatism, according to a study.

The prospective study included 101 eyes of 101 patients who underwent femtosecond laser small incision lenticule extraction for myopia and myopic astigmatism.
