SMILE for Clear Vision

  • Minimally Invasive Procedure

    Compared to most procedures, SMILE laser vision correction is gentle and comfortable.Your surgeon will only need to make a small, precise opening to correction your vision.

  • Rapid Visual Recovery

    Vision recovers quickly after SMILE. Most people return to their normal activities the next day.

  • Freedom from Lenses

    SMILE is designed to eliminate your need for glasses and contacts.

  • Quick & Simple

    SMILE takes only a few minutes start to finish. The part of the procedure that uses a laser to reshape your cornea lasts about 30 seconds!

  • Eye Comfort

    With SMILE, you may experience less dry eye and discomfort during and after the procedure.

SMILE Patient Testimonies:


I've had terrible vision since I was a little kid. Been wearing contacts since age 12. Can't even express to you all how life changing this procedure was. Sometimes my contacts would get really dry during filming and it was so irritating to the point where it would affect my performance on camera. I need to give a special shoutout to the staff at @iqlaservision_lasik_specialist for making this experience so painless and comfortable. If you're considering getting your vision corrected: I HIGHLY recommend this facility. They will take such good care of you and are exremely reliable.


I was seeing 20/15 after my SMILE procedure. I just want to thank everyone at IQ Laser Vision and my surgeon Dr. Erica Liu! I said goodbye to contacts and glasses today and couldn't be happier!


SMILE is a quick procedure with 3 simple steps. SMILE is a proven procedure to reduce or
eliminate your use of glasses and contacts.



A thin lenticule and small incision are created inside the intact cornea.


The lenticule is removed through the incision with minimal disruption to the corneal biomechanics.



Removing the lenticule changes the shape of the cornea, thereby achieving a refractive correction.

Which is better, SMILE or LASIK?

This is one of the most common questions we hear, and many patients want to know which procedure is “better”. The fact is that both LASIK and SMILE are proven, consistent procedures, and most patients will be very happy with either procedure. Generally speaking, SMILE is the gentler laser vision correction option and has a smaller risk of post-surgical dry eye. LASIK offers a ever-so-slightly quicker post-procedure visual recovery time. Based on the anatomy of your eye and lifestyle goals, your surgeon can recommend the right procedure for you.
