In the latest issue of Cataract & Refractive Surgery Today Europe, its editorial board members (including Dr Michael Lawless) are asked to describe:
‘It is impossible to single out the best piece of equipment. Many excimer lasers, SMILE®, the LenSx laser (Alcon), and too many anterior segment imaging systems to count: but they have all helped.’
‘I would buy a VisuMax femtosecond laser to allow me to perform SMILE. In fact, this is exactly what we did nearly 2 years ago. This has prov- en to be a clinical success, and good things always flow from that. Of my patients who are suitable for corneal laser refractive surgery, 60% now undergo SMILE, 30% LASIK, and 10% PRK. Our message is that all three are great procedures, and I select the one that is best for the individual patient.’
