SMILE Eye Surgery

We believe that everyone has the right to see everything clearly. That is why we have chosen to devote our life to providing people with the greatest eye doctors possible.

Overview SMILE

The newest breakthrough technology in eye care treatment is Small Incision Lenticule Extraction (SMILE). This minimally invasive laser surgery procedure helps rectify myopia, and can even address mild astigmatisms up to 5 diopters. Unlike traditional LASIK surgery which requires two large incisions into the cornea, SMILE provides a precise solution with less risk of complications. 

If you are searching for a safer, more precise and efficient correction to your vision problem, RELEX SMILE is certainly the answer. This modern laser technology involves creating a pocket-like incision in the cornea through which natural lens removal occurs – drastically reducing risks compared with LASIK. The recovery period is notably shorter than other methods too, plus it reduces potential side effects and regression chances considerably!

SMILE Procedure

The unparalleled SMILE procedure provides a unique alternative to flap creation, instead forming an intact lenticule within the cornea.

For the SMILE procedure, a laser makes an incredibly tiny incision of around 4mm or shorter in the cornea. Through this cut, surgeons can extract a lenticule which modifies and adjusts the shape of your cornea to achieve refractive correction. Once extracted, it has minimal effects on your ocular biomechanics for better safety assurance.

Benefits of SMILE Eye Surgery

SMILE has several advantages over traditional LASIK surgery when it comes to correcting vision. SMILE eye treatment is a wonderful substitute for the more well-known LASIK and LASEK operations, which are suited to people who have or don’t have astigmatism.

Some of the advantages of SMILE Eye surgery are:

  • SMILE is a minimally invasive laser eye surgery, allowing it to be completed by an extended range of individuals who otherwise could not have undergone other types of LASIK operations.
  • Unlike LASIK surgery, which creates a healing flap in the eye that can cause dryness, you are much less likely to experience this post-operative symptom with other procedures.
  • Patients can expect to heal quickly and experience less pain than with LASIK, since there is no flap involved.
  • After undergoing SMILE eye surgery, vision typically improves by up to 80% within the first few hours. Maximum improvement can be seen in just a couple of weeks after the procedure is completed!

Why SMILE Eye Surgery?

Keep in mind that each technique has advantages and disadvantages. An ophthalmologist must examine a patient to determine which treatment is best for him or her.
