much gen­tler on the eye.

On top of that, there is also no fright­en­ing ‘black­out’ or bleed­ing dur­ing the pro­ce­dure or swelling of the eye af­ter treatment.

See­ing as how this pro­ce­dure cre­ates a much smaller wound with its min­i­mally-in­va­sive surgery, it also re­sults in a much stronger eye and less im­me­di­ate post­op­er­a­tive dis­com­fort and tear­ing.

The smaller in­ci­sion also means fewer corneal nerves are sev­ered dur­ing the pro­ce­dure, which also means less dry eyes.

Adding on to this, one of the main fears when it comes to the Lasik pro­ce­dure is flap dis­place­ment or dis­lodge­ment.

Since ReLEx SMILE doesn’t cre­ate a flap, there will be no such prob­lems and is a good op­tion for those who are in­volved in con­tact sport.

While re­sults af­ter the pro­ce­dure may vary, most pa­tients said they have ex­pe­ri­enced a dra­matic im­prove­ment in their vi­sion in just a day af­ter surgery as well as sus­tained sta­bil­ity days af­ter their op­er­a­tion.

Al­though laser eye cor­rec­tion is a low-risk pro­ce­dure with a high suc­cess rate, it is not to be taken lightly as it is a sur­gi­cal pro­ce­dure that car­ries sur­gi­cal risks.

Be­fore opt­ing for surgery, please do have your eyes prop­erly eval­u­ated and ex­am­ined by an eye sur­geon and dis­cuss all op­tions and po­ten­tial risks in de­tail be­fore mak­ing any fi­nal choices.

With the ReLex SMILE pro­ce­dure, the lentic­ule is re­moved through a small in­ci­sion, with min­i­mal dis­rup­tion of the biome­chan­ics of the cornea and no cut­ting of a flap.
