Bobby Saenz, OD, MS, FAAO, offers a crash course in small incision lenticule extraction (SMILE), guiding viewers through a surgery performed by Gregory D. Parkhurst, MD, FACS. Dr. Saenz shows how Dr. Parkhurst relies on a VisuMax laser (Carl Zeiss Meditic) to define the lenticule, and explains the postoperative regimen and outlines candidates for SMILE. The juiciest part?
