What is SMILE® Eye Surgery?

SMILE® stands for Small Incision Lenticule Extraction. This is a comfortable, high-precision procedure where a small piece of tissue (lenticule) is created inside the cornea with the laser, and removed through a small incision. The procedure can treat short-sightedness and astigmatism (blurred vision), and patients generally experience fast visual recovery.

As SMILE® involves a small incision, it’s minimally invasive and flapless compared to other procedures. This means there is a lower risk of infection, as well as a lower incidence of dry eye syndrome. There is also no risk of a flap dislodging, ideal for immediate return to contact sports. The Cornea is also stronger after SMILE® surgery compared to LASIK.

We do our best to make the surgery a comfortable experience for the patient. Our experienced surgeons are trained to be gentle when administering this procedure, ensuring they make it painless procedure.

One of the benefits of SMILE® eye surgery is the faster recovery time patients will experience. The patient’s functional vision will return normally within one week after the surgery.
