Abstract

To summarize, the future of lamellar corneal surgery is most likely to stear towards the femtosecond laser [24,25]. Today, how-ever, the smooth interface achieved by the big-bubble technique is far superior to the intrastromal interfaces achieved by the most effective femtosecond laser today. Adding to this the advantages of this technique in terms of safety, early rehabilitation and the ability to optimize the use of available corneal tissue, I have no doubt that this technique is here to stay.
