Vision Problem: Compound Myopic Astigmatism
Procedure: ReLEx SMILE
Dr. Angelo Appiotti performed ReLEx SMILE surgery to treat compound myopic astigmatism.
Surgery was necessary. Chiara’s eyes could no longer tolerate contact lenses, which kept shifting out of place during soccer games and hampered her sports performance. It was increasingly difficult for the athlete to find the right eye-foot coordination. The surgery finally eliminated her dependence on contact lenses.
Final refractive outcome: 20/12 visual acuity 7 days after surgery.
