ReLEx SMILE Laser Eye Surgery

SMILE (also known as laser-assisted lenticule extraction) laser eye surgery is an innovative and minimally invasive procedure designed to correct common vision problems, including myopia (nearsightedness) and astigmatism. The procedure involves reshaping the cornea, the transparent front surface of the eye, using a highly precise femtosecond laser. Unlike traditional LASIK surgery, SMILE doesn’t require creating a corneal flap.

Stages of SMILE Laser Treatment Method:

  • With Zeiss Visumax femtosecond technology, a thin lenticular (disc-shaped tissue) is created by one single step in the front of the eye (cornea).
  • The surgeon removes the created lenticular from the cornea outside the 2.0 mm opening in the cornea. There is no need to cut any flap.
  • With the cornea reshaping by removal of the lenticular formed in the eye, the refractive disorder in the eye is corrected. Corneal biomechanics are less affected by no flap formation.
