SMILE Eye Surgery

What Is SMILE Laser Eye Surgery?
SMILE is one of the most advanced LASIK alternatives on the market today — it’s minimally invasive, meaning a quicker and easier recovery!
During SMILE, we use an extremely precise laser to create a tiny disc of tissue in the cornea. This disc is then removed through a tiny microincision to painlessly reshape the eye and correct the problems causing your vision issues.
SMILE is FDA Approved to correct mild to severe nearsightedness (plus some astigmatism if necessary) making it an excellent option even for patients who have been told that LASIK or PRK won’t be a good fit for them.
Our State-Of-The-Art Surgical Technology
SMILE eye surgery uses the ZEISS VisuMax® femtosecond laser, a medical technology we’ve come to love. It’s efficient, unbelievably precise, and can make even the tiniest adjustments in real time to ensure that your SMILE laser eye surgery is perfectly adapted to your unique vision correction needs.
Benefits of SMILE
Due to the minimally invasive process, SMILE can be completed quicker and with less interaction with the eye than similar procedures. This makes it a great fit for patients with sensitive eyes, or anyone looking for the fastest possible recovery!
Perhaps most importantly, SMILE eye surgery has nearly identical success rates to LASIK and related surgeries. And, if you’re concerned about potential side effects like dry eye after surgery, SMILE carries a lower risk than other vision correction procedures.

Do I Qualify for SMILE Eye Surgery?
Most adults with stable vision prescriptions meet the requirements for SMILE laser eye surgery — in fact, because SMILE is so gentle on the eye, many patients qualify for it who wouldn’t qualify for other eye surgeries!
