The article discusses the prospective study which showed that small-incision lenticule extraction combined with a femtosecond laser can treat myopia and myopic astigmatism. It says that few complications were observed in intrastromal refractive procedure, but with notable patient satisfaction. Rupal Shah, author of the study, says that the refractive result was significantly stable and comparable to the excimer laser procedures.
