Forget LASIK Surgery! Go for SMILE
If you suffer from near sightedness or astigmatism, you may be tired of constantly needing new glasses or contact lenses. If you are looking to attain a perfect vision, without the pain and the hassles of hospitalization, then SMILE laser surgery is the right choice for you.
Why not LASIK surgery?
LASIK is been there for a long time and thousands of patients are already been treated. However, there are significant side-effects associated with LASIK which includes losing bio mechanical strength of your cornea, dry eyes and double vision (rarely).
How it works ?
SMILE is an advanced third generation laser eye surgery. It makes eye surgery safer, gentler and faster than ever before – as there are no blades, stiches, injections or bandages involved. The procedure has been approved by the US FDA and more than 1.5 million people worldwide now enjoy perfect vision – thanks to SMILE.
Here’s how the advanced technique works:
- Next-gen bladeless process:
In SMILE laser surgery, the doctor creates a key hole on the corneal surface using ground breaking femtosecond laser. He then extracts a lenticule through the keyhole to shape the cornea and correct the vision.
This procedure requires an 80 % smaller side-cut and a 30 % smaller cap cut than regular LASIK procedure. SMILE preserves the bio-mechanical strength of cornea to ensure that you don’t suffer from conditions such as dry eyes in the post-surgery phase.
- Comfortable and painless procedure than LASIK:
The high-precision ZEISS VisuMax femtosecond laser technology used in the procedure ensures high-level reproducibility and predictability – even in the case of high refraction corrections.
Its outstanding cutting precision and exceptional speed result in a gentle treatment approach. As a result, patients are comfortable during the surgery, and do not feel pain or even pressure on the cornea during the procedure.
- Flapless for faster recovery than LASIK:
Traditional laser-based procedures such as LASIK, involve creating a small flap on the cornea to allow the reshaping of the underlying corneal tissues. The flap is then replaced after the surgery.
However, SMILE does not require the creation of flaps during the surgery. The keyhole technique eliminates all complications related to flap creation, thereby speeding up the recovery process. Patients can see clearly within a day of surgery with wow factor.
Don’t worry, SMILE!
The bladeless, painless and flapless SMILE procedure offers several benefits:
- Total time for the procedure – 15 minutes (with just 24 seconds on each eye)
- Provides the fastest recovery for any laser procedure
- Results in 30% less tissue loss
- Can treat short-sighted patients up to -10 diopters, whereas the LASIK treatment is only recommended for patients with refraction of up to a maximum of -8 diopters.
With so many reasons to make you smile, ask your doctor for SMILE laser eye surgery and get rid of your glasses once and for all.
