What is the ReLEx SMILE Laser Treatment Method?
ReLEx SMILE is a minimally invasive procedure, a small piece of tissue (called a lenticular) is created inside the cornea with the laser, and removed through a small incision. This means many of the layers of the cornea are unaffected and allows fast healing. In addition, there are no flap related complications.
Prior to the treatment anaesthetic eye drops are applied to the eye and an eyelid holder is used to prevent the eye from blinking during the procedure.
Visual recovery in general is fast. Patients can normally return to work, shower, or apply makeup shortly after surgery.
Driving and sports activities are possible within 24-48 hours.
Minimally invasive and gentle with only a small incision.
No flap and no flap related complications.
Visual recovery is fast.
