Abstract

Background: The widespread use of full femtosecond laser technology in the field of refractive errors has pushed corneal refractive surgery in a non-invasive direction. Common methods include femtosecond laser-assisted excimer laser in situ corneal grinding (FS-LASIK) and femtosecond laser small incision corneal matrix lens extraction (SMILE). What are the clinical characteristics of the two after surgery and the differences in the clinical manifestations after the operation. This study will explain the advantages and disadvantages and research results of the two types of surgery. Research methods; From January 2021 to January 2023, 25 refractive irregularities (49 eyes) and 12 male patients who were corrected by FS-LASIK in the hospital; 13 cases of women were selected as the FS-LASIK group. In addition, 30 refractive irregularities (60 eyes) and 17 male patients who came to the hospital for SMILE correction at the same period were selected as the SMILE group. In the study, it is necessary to count UDVA, SE, HOAs, bulbration, comet difference, tear secretion test, TBUT, OSDI score, BCDVA, astigmatism, etc. at different time stages of preoperative and postoperative 1w, 1m, 1m, 3m and 6m before and 6m. Statistical analysis and clinical characteristics are carried out through the above data. Objective; Compare the clinical characteristics, advantages and disadvantages of femtosecond laser small incision corneal matrix lens extraction (SMILE) and femtosecond laser-assisted excimer laser in situ corneal grinding (FS-LASIK) in the treatment of refractive errors. Results; Compared with the two groups of patients, the differences in postoperative UDVA, SE, HOAs, spherical aberration, comet difference, tear secretion test, TBUT and OSDI scores were statistically significant (P <0.05), but the differences between BCDVA and astigmatism were not statistically significant (P >0.05). The HOAs of SMILE group patients (30) were lower than those in the FS-LASIK group (P <0.05). The coma difference between 1 week and January to June after surgery in the SMILE group was higher than that in the FS-LASIK group (P <0.05). The TBUT of patients in the SMILE group was significantly longer than that of the FS-LASIK group (P <0.05).
