Small incision lenticule extraction (SMILE) is a relatively new refractive procedure designed to treat Myopia (Short sight). ReLEx SMILE is flapless, painless, bladeless procedure fully computer operated using a femtosecond laser.

This procedure involves no corneal flaps; refractive changes are made in the intact cornea itself. Unlike the conventional procedures, ReLEx SMILE involves the creation of an extremely thin 3D layer in your intact cornea, corresponding to your refractive number that needs correction. This is then extracted out through a small keyhole incision of about 2-4mm only. As a result, the cornea gets reshaped to correspond to the ideal shape for correct vision. Entirely laser controlled, it is…

ReLEx SMILE – Beyond Lasik Eye Surgery in Kochi

By loteye / ReLEx Smile

Why ReLEx SMILE instead of LASIK? Conventional LASIK is a two step procedure. 1st step is creation of a corneal flap using either a mechanical microkeratome or a Femtosecond Laser. 2nd step is corneal ablation using an excimer laser to reshape the cornea by removing the ultra thin layer of the cornea to correct the refractive errors. ReLEx SMILE is single step, Small Incision Lenticule Extraction (SMILE) technique is a keyhole procedure, it eliminates the need to cut a corneal flap. A Femtosecond laser is used to dissect a lenticule in the corneal stroma without making a flap. The dissected lenticule is then removed from the cornea through a small incision which is around 2mm in size. This procedure is the safest and arguably the best Laser technique present now.

Are there any side effects for ReLEx SMILE treatment? The entire idea which conceptualized SMILE is based on how to make laser procedures that exist today, such as LASIK, even safer and more stable in the long term. This technique is not only effective and predictable but also provides a safety and stability that is superior to traditional LASIK. ReLEx SMILE is free from flap related complications possible with other forms of LASIK. The cornea is biomechanically more stable after ReLEx SMILE as the incision made on the cornea is 80% smaller than the flap cut made during conventional LASIK, minimizing the chances of late corneal thinning and ectasia and also dry eye.

By loteye / ReLEx Smile

ReLEx SMILE Treatment Steps: Whereas LASIK procedures involve cutting a flap, folding it back and removing the corneal tissue through point-by-point ablation using an excimer laser, ReLEx SMILE utilizes the high-precision femtosecond laser VisuMax® to create a lenticule inside the cornea and access incision in a single treatment step. Step 1: VisuMax femtosecond laser creates a thin lenticle and a small access measuring less than 4mm in the intact cornea. Step 2: The Surgeon removes the lenticle through the small access. There is minimal disruption to the biomechanics of the cornea. Step 3: Removing the lenticule changes the shape of the cornea, thereby achieving the desired refractive correction

Advanced Lasik eye surgery in India

By loteye / Lasik Surgery

ReLEx SMILE vs LASIK ReLEx SMILE allows the correction of the refractive error without a large side cut incision and without the creation of a corneal flap, while preserving to a large extent, the original corneal architecture. It uses only one femtosecond laser to complete the refractive surgery, potentially reducing surgical time and side effects. In LASIK, A flap of corneal cover is made by Femto laser or microkeratome (blade Lasik) and lifted aside, followed by number correction with the help of excimer laser by removing the corneal tissues. Later on the flap is kept back in original position. Flap Cut size is nearly 20mm. Whereas in ReLEx SMILE, an incision of just 2mm is created in the corneal layer. This is the most minimal invasive refractive correction method.
