VIDEO: WHAT IS THE ReLEx SMILE SURGERY PROCESS?

WHO IS SUITABLE FOR ReLEx SMILE?

This treatment is suitable for people who are myopic (short-sighted). It can also be suitable for those previously declined for LASIK or LASEK or with slightly thinner corneas.

HOW DOES ReLEx SMILE WORK?

It is a minimally invasive bladeless surgery. A special laser is used to create a lenticule inside the cornea which is then removed through a keyhole side opening. Removal of this lenticule through a side opening corrects the refractive error, allowing the eye to focus light on the retina and therefore a person can see clearly without glasses.
