BACKGROUND Small incision refractive lenticule extraction (SMILE) is an effective laser procedure that treats myopia. This research was to describe a novel approach to treat corneal ulcer or perforation using the corneal lenticules obtained from SMILE and to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of tectonic keratoplasty with femtosecond laser intrastromal lenticule (TEKIL). METHODS A total of twenty patients (22 eyes) were monitored for at least 6 months and were assessed using slit lamp… CONTINUE READING
