Small Incision Lenticule Extraction, or SMILE, is a revolutionary surgery to treat nearsightedness, astigmatism, or poor vision in clients with dry eyes or an inability to tolerate contact lenses. This treatment is minimally invasive and may be able to transform your quality of life.
Is SMILE right for me?
Not every client is right for LASIK, and some would prefer an alternative to the surgery. The advantage of SMILE is that it is minimally invasive. However, it is not appropriate for all types of vision problems. You may be a candidate for this groundbreaking surgery if:
- You are nearsighted or have a mild astigmatism
- You are 22 years or older
- Your eye prescription has been stable for a year
- You have a degree of nearsightedness in the range of -1 and -10 and up to 3 diopters of astigmatism
- Your cornea is healthy
