    Intraoperative Optical Coherence Tomography–Guided Management of Cap–Lenticule Adhesion During SMILE

    PURPOSE: To report successful lenticule extraction using intraoperative optical coherence tomography (OCT) in a case of cap–lenticule adhesion during small incision lenticule extraction (SMILE). METHODS: Case report. RESULTS: A 22-year-old patient with a refractive error of −5.00 −0.50 × 120° and −5.00 −0.75 × 60° in the right and left eyes, respectively, was scheduled for SMILE. The lenticule was created using the VisuMax femtosecond laser system (Carl Zeiss Meditec, Jena, Germany). The surgeon experienced difficulty while extracting the lenticule in the right eye. The patient was immediately shifted under the surgical microscope integrated with intraoperative OCT. The ...
