Other settings were as follows: spot energy was 140 nJ, minimum lenticule edge thickness was 15 [micro]m, lenticule sidecut angle was 120[degrees] and optical zone was 6.
8) In this technique, lenticules of peripheral corneal epithelium with superficial stroma were grafted.
The donor lenticule was transferred endothelial side down onto the viscoelastic-coated Sheet glide (Figure 1(g)).
Such materials must be optically clear, laser adjustable, gas permeable, structurally stable and capable of transporting nutrients from inside the eye to the epithelial cells growing outside the lenticule, he notes.
Furthermore, in significant astigmatism treatments, like with hyperopic laser, the effective optical zone is reduced and, therefore, the absence of pupil tracking with SMILE is also potentially problematic as a decentered lenticule is possible and can be difficult to treat.
The US Food and Drug Administration has approved the VisuMax Femtosecond Laser for the small incision lenticule extraction (SMILE) procedure to reduce or eliminate nearsightedness in certain patients 22 years of age or older, US-based device manufacturer Carl Zeiss Meditec Inc.
The small-incision lenticule extraction (SMUE) procedure is a relatively new development in refractive surgery and has been introduced into practice in some Turkish centers in recent years.

In one patient, where limbal stem cell transplant was required, the lenticule of conjunctivolimbal tissue was harvested from the contra lateral normal eye and was sutured at limbus after HAMT with 10-0 nylon sutures.
