520    In this book an international panel of authors offer a 
       clear, step-by-step approach to Small Incision Lenticule 
       Extraction (SMILE), a novel refractive procedure approved 
       for the treatment of myopia and astigmatism. The book 
       opens by discussing important fundamentals of the 
       technology, followed by a close look at the healing 
       response. The current surgical techniques are then 
       described in detail with the aim of providing easy-to-
       understand guidance for all who wish to perform SMILE 
       surgery or to identify solutions to pitfalls that may 
       arise during the learning curve. A section on clinical 
       science is aimed at the more advanced reader who wants to 
       understand the underlying principles of SMILE surgery; it 
       provides a clear knowledge of the advantages of the 
       procedure and ways to improve results. Ongoing 
       investigations to further expand the spectrum of SMILE 
       surgery are then examined, with coverage of hyperopia 
       treatment, reversible refractive surgery, and surgery for 
       very high myopia. Finally, suggestions are offered on how 
       to market this advanced procedure and communicate it to 
       the prospective patient.
