Small Incision Lenticule extraction (SMILE)
SMILE is a minimally invasive flapless Laser Vision Correction procedure. During SMILE laser eye surgery, a lenticule is created inside the intact cornea using the VisuMax femtosecond laser. The removal of the lenticule through a very small peripheral corneal incision achieves the desired vision correction. Being a flapless procedure SMILE has an advantage of inducing less dry eye.
Bladeless Trans-PRK (Photorefractive Keratectomy)
As with all laser refractive surgeries, vision correction is achieved by changing the shape of the cornea. This is a bladeless and flapless procedure. The advantage of PRK is removal is that the biomechanical strength of the cornea is less altered compared to LASIK/SMILE. The recovery of vision after PRK may be slow compared to LASIK/SMILE.
