We offer more than just traditional LASIK. We also specialize in SMILE Flapless LASIK, a minimally invasive procedure that reduces healing time and offers a quicker recovery for patients. Our experienced team of LASIK surgeons uses state-of-the-art technology and techniques to provide safe, precise, and customized treatments.

How Does LASIK Work?

LASIK, or laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis, is a highly advanced and precise procedure that reshapes the cornea to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. This is achieved by using a laser to create a thin flap in the cornea, which is then gently lifted and reshaped to improve the way light enters the eye. The flap is then carefully put back in place, allowing for rapid healing and minimal discomfort.

Unveiling the Intricacies of SMILE LASIK

SMILE, short for Small Incision Lenticule Extraction, stands at the forefront of ocular advancements, offering a refined approach to vision correction. This cutting-edge procedure redefines vision correction in three seamless steps:

  • Precision Crafting: Your surgeon will create a lenticule, laying the foundation for enhanced visual clarity by changing the shape of your cornea.
  • Subtle Extraction: Your surgeon will gently remove the lenticule through a tiny incision, preserving the natural biomechanics of your cornea with minimal disruption.
  • Sharp Focus: The refractive landscape of your eye transforms with the extraction of the lenticule, reshaping your cornea to perfection and restoring optimal vision.

With SMILE, patients can revel in the joy of crystal-clear vision without the constraints of corrective eyewear. Say goodbye to the inconvenience of misplaced glasses and discomfort from contact lenses, allowing yourself the freedom to embrace an active lifestyle with unrivaled visual acuity.

From swimming and hiking to wearing a full face of makeup, SMILE offers unparalleled convenience and comfort. And with its minimally invasive approach, there is minimal disruption to daily activities, making it the ideal choice for those with busy schedules. 

Why Opt for SMILE Over LASIK?

The answer lies in the innovative technology behind this procedure. Unlike LASIK, which involves creating a flap in the cornea, SMILE uses a precise laser to create a small incision that removes a tiny piece of tissue called a lenticule. This reshapes the cornea without altering its strength or stability, resulting in better long-term outcomes and reduced risk of complications.
