Overview SMILE

Small Incision Lenticule Extraction (SMILE) laser eye surgery is a cutting-edge treatment for vision problems. SMILE is a minimally invasive procedure that helps to correct myopia (nearsightedness). It’s also effective in treating minor astigmatism up to 5 diopters in severity. In contrast, traditional LASIK surgery involves making two large flaps in the cornea. RELEX SMILE is a new type of vision correction that uses a laser to create a small, pocket-like incision in the cornea through which the natural lens is removed. This method is much less invasive than LASIK and has a quicker recovery time. It is also considered to be more precise, which results in fewer side effects and less chance of regression.

RELEX SMILE is an excellent option for those who are not candidates for LASIK due to thin corneas or other factors. It is also a good choice for those who have large pupils, as there is less risk of developing halos or glare around bright lights. If you are considering RELEX SMILE laser eye surgery, it’s important to find an experienced and reputable surgeon who can perform the procedure safely and effectively.

SMILE Procedure

The SMILE treatment is a one-of-a-kind procedure that does not require the creation of a flap. A lenticule is made within an intact cornea using this method.

The SMILE treatment begins with the laser making a small incision (approximately 4mm or less in length) in the cornea. Through this incision, the lenticule is extracted. The extraction of the lenticule changes the shape of the cornea, which leads to the refractive correction. Once the lenticule is removed, there is minimal disruption to the biomechanics of the cornea.

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:

  • As SMILE is a less invasive laser eye surgery, it can be done to a wider range of people, even those who were told that they are unable to undergo other types of LASIK surgery.
  • You are less likely to get dry eyes than you would after LASIK surgery due to the lack of a healing flap.
  • Patients should anticipate to recover rapidly and feel less discomfort than they would with LASIK due to the lack of a flap.
  • Eyesight often improves by 80 percent within the first few hours after SMILE eye surgery, with maximal improvement occurring in a few weeks.
