SMILE Laser Eye Surgery

What is Small Incision Lenticule Extraction (SMILE)?

SMILE is a refractive procedure, which corrects for myopia (nearsightedness) and astigmatism. During the SMILE procedure, a small piece of tissue (lenticule) unique to the patient’s eye and refractive error is created inside the cornea with a femtosecond laser and removed through a very small incision. This procedure is minimally invasive which means there is very little corneal tissue intervention. As a result, this procedure has quick visual recovery and very little discomfort.

Benefits of SMILE Eye Surgery

SMILE offers the following clinical advantages:

  • Less invasive surgery
  • Low risk of getting transient dry eye syndrome
  • Higher biomechanical stability of the cornea
  • Faster wound healing
  • Effective and gentle results
