People are smiling big after getting the SMILE vision correction procedure. Why? Because they’re seeing better than they’ve seen in a long time—and maybe ever.
Who are all these smiling patients? People just like you. Said Joshua, one of our many happy patients, “Before SMILE, my glasses were a constant hassle. After SMILE, I can rock climb, run and play with my kids with no worries. My barrier is gone!”
And now there are even more reasons to smile, because SMILE, which has been available around the world, is now available in sunny Southern California.
What is the SMILE procedure anyway?
We know; SMILE sounds more like a dental procedure, right? The acronym stands for Small Incision Lenticule Extraction (SMILE). The SMILE procedure is an advanced, FDA-approved form (and one of several types) of laser vision correction designed to reduce or eliminate your dependence on glasses and contacts.
You may have heard of the other forms, like LASIK or PRK. SMILE is the latest and most advanced iteration of laser vision correction. It’s been around for more than a decade now and has been performed in more than 65 countries by more than 1,300 surgeons. And thanks to them, more than 1 million people are SMILE-ing today and seeing life in all its beauty.
SMILE is a quick surgery and the first minimally invasive laser vision correction procedure. In fact, the SMILE procedure only takes a few minutes from start to better vision. And the laser portion lasts less than a minute. During the procedure, your surgeon will only have to make a small incision in your eye to enable corneal reshaping. The precise incision heals quickly, getting most people back to their normal lives as fast as the very next day.
SMILE or LASIK?
SMILE is typically considered the gentler form of laser vision correction, using only a single laser to create an incision and reshape the cornea. LASIK, on the other hand, is a 2-step process that uses one laser to create an incision in the eye and another to correct the shape of the cornea. But both SMILE and LASIK have been proven to provide amazing results for patients, leaving them smiling bigger and seeing better.
SMILE and LASIK are technologically advanced procedures meant to improve your eyesight and your life. LASIK has been the treatment standard for more than 2 decades, and now SMILE offers a new, gentler treatment option.
What makes you a good SMILE candidate?
Are you nearsighted or farsighted and wishing you could change that and improve your vision? If so, SMILE may be right for you. The gentle approach of the SMILE procedure reduces the risk of post-surgery dry eyes, making it a great option for patients who already suffer from dry eyes. But every patient is unique, and the best way to determine if SMILE or another vision correction procedure is right for you is to schedule a consultation with your ophthalmologist. After examining your vision, your goals and your eyes’ anatomy, they’ll be able to determine and recommend the best vision correction procedure specifically for you.
