    Evaluation of Wide Corneal Epithelial Remodeling after Small Incision Lenticule Extraction (SMILE) with Wide-Field Optical Coherence Tomography

    Purpose . This study aims to assess the corneal epithelial remodeling within a 9 mm diameter zone induced by small incision lenticule extraction (SMILE) and evaluate its relationship with the refractive outcomes. Methods . A total of 64 eyes of 64 patients were included. Wide-field optical coherence tomography (OCT) was used to measure the epithelial thickness (ET) across a 9 mm diameter area, preoperatively, and after one day, one week, one month, three months, and six months postoperatively. The ET changes were compared among the different time points and analyzed zones. Results . The ET increases from one week to three months and ...
