Vision Problem: Myopia and Astigmatism
Procedure: ReLEx SMILE
Dr. Angelo Appiotti performed ReLEx SMILE surgery on Irene’s eyes to treat myopia (5.0 diopters) associated with astigmatism (1.75 diopters) in her right eye, and myopia (5.75 diopters) associated with astigmatism (0.50 diopters) in her left eye.
Recovery was fast. Irene immediately reported marked improvement in her competitive and aesthetic performance, which are both essential in a discipline where athletes need to walk on stage in a bikini.
Final refractive outcome: 20/14 visual acuity.
