SMILE stands for Small Incision Lenticule Extraction, and is a bladeless procedure which is minimally invasive. This novel refractive surgery is the most recent, advanced laser vision correction. The procedure quickly reshapes the cornea of your eye. The procedure is carried out exclusively with one femtosecond laser (Visumax by Carl Zeiss).

In the first couple of days after the surgery, you will put antibiotic and anti-inflammatory drops into the eye that underwent the surgery. You will put moisturising eye drops to your eyes for the next couple of weeks. Most patients are able to start work as usual between the second and the fifth day after the surgery

WhyReLex Smile isbetterthanLasik?
A key procedural difference between LASIK and ReLEX SMILE is that the former involves the creation of a flap, while the latter does not.
SMILE surgery is a newer type of laser eye surgery. It has a faster recovery time and no flap related problems.
ReLEx SMILE incision is 1/5 smaller than that of LASIK which means that normal production and regulation of tear film is better in SMILE.
SMILE is considered key-hole laser eye surgery as it only involves creating a 3mm opening in the cornea; typically LASIK has an opening of 18-20mm.
SMILE provides potentially better biomechanical stability of the cornea than Lasik treatment
Much less chance of developing dry eyes
No chance of the flap dislocating, shifting, moving, or folding
Much better for the long term stability of the cornea
