Both LASIK and SMILE can help create clearer vision and reduce or eliminate your need for glasses and contacts. Understanding the difference between the two procedures can help you and your surgeon make the right choice for your laser vision correction.
SMILE is the latest advancement in laser vision correction for myopia (near-sightedness), providing LASIK-like outcomes in a minimally invasive procedure.
SMILE is an acronym that stands for "SMall Incision Lenticule Extraction." Simply put, a laser is used to create a thin, contact lens-shaped layer just beneath the surface of the eye and then a small opening, through which the layer is removed.
