Summary of "Comparison Between Q-Adjusted LASIK and Small-Incision Lenticule Extraction for Correction of Myopia and Myopic Astigmatism."

To compare Q-adjusted femtosecond-assisted laser in situ keratomileusis (FS-LASIK) and small-incision lenticule extraction (SMILE) in terms of safety, efficacy, and predictability, as well as in terms of changes in dry eye parameters, corneal biomechanics, higher-order aberrations (HOAs), and corneal asphericity.
