CHOOSE SMILE | BEYOND LASIK, BEYOND CONTOURA
ReLex SMILE eye surgery is both bladeless and painless
ReLex SMILE eye surgery is a fully automated next-generation procedure
that is completed in a short time to give long-lasting and stable results.
The chances that a patient might require retreatment are meagre as compared
to other blade-free Lasik procedures.
The eye surgeon anaesthetizes a patient’s eye before performing ReLex SMILE laser eye surgery and then prevents it from blinking or closing with the help of a speculum. The surgeon utilizes Femto laser technology to create precise lenticular surfaces in the cornea and later removes the lenticule through the incision.

Is SMILE eye surgery safe?
The latest and advanced SMILE eye surgery procedure is safe and effective
in correcting eye problems. This extraction surgery has been done since
2012 and is being officially done in the US since 2016. It is now an FDA
SMILE is performed only after the tests are done to gauge the condition of the eye. Centre for Sight ensures safe practices for all its testing and treatments, as is the case for SMILE eye surgery.
How ReLex SMILE surgery works?
In ReLex SMILE, tiny pulses of femtosecond laser pass through the outer portion of the cornea to carve out a lenticule (corresponding to the refractive error to be corrected) which is then quickly extracted.
The Procedure of SMILE surgery
SMILE laser eye surgery is a unique treatment with the proper procedure, which includes:
The eye specialist gives anaesthetic eye drops to numb the eye and ensures painless treatment.
Using Carl Zeiss Visu Max laser, a number of pulses are placed on the cornea’s centre with extraordinary precision.
The pulses from the laser then create tiny bubbles, approximately less than one-hundredth of the width of a human hair. The bubbles create the outline for the tissue that needs to be removed.
The laser creates a small connecting tunnel which allows the doctor to draw out the tissue, therefore changing the shape of the cornea to improve the patient’s vision. The whole procedure is completed in less than 15 minutes for both eyes while using the laser only for a small proportion of this time.

Busting the myths related with SMILE eye surgery
MYTH 1: SMILE laser eye surgery is new and still developing, so wait
SMILE comes with its own robust set of evidence-based excellent track records. It is one of the safest methods to correct nearsightedness or myopia.
MYTH 2: Youll need glasses post-procedure
No, its not entirely true. In the FDAs review of the procedure, 98.5%
of the participants saw a significant improvement in their vision, and
93% of the total population had attained near-perfect vision.
SMILE refractive surgery wont guarantee that you wont need glasses in old age as no existing treatment can stop the eventual decay of eyes or formation of cataract at one age. SMILE eye surgery promises an excellent long-term vision improvement and maintenance of the same.
MYTH 3: You could end up blind from SMILE laser eye surgery
SMILE surgery has an excellent safety record. Any invasive surgery always
comes with a risk of complications, but theres no chance that this procedure
could blind a patient.
The incision used in SMILE is 80% smaller than in standard forms of LASIK, and many doctors argue that it minimizes the chances of corneal thinning and post-procedure dry eye symptoms.
MYTH 4: The procedure is painful, and if I blink the procedure could go wrong
Its natural to blink, but during the procedure, your eyes are numbed. A speculum and suction are employed to ensure that your eye stays in place throughout the process. SMILE eye doctors ensure that the conditions are safe before they begin the procedure, and the total duration of the treatment is only 15 minutes. Patients who had undergone the process have reported the surgery as painless.
MYTH 6: My prescription is too severe to be treated, and I have astigmatism too
Currently, myopia correction in SMILE ≤–10.00 D with or without astigmatism
≤–5.00 D is approved by the FDA.
For nearsightedness and astigmatism, SMILE laser eye surgery is capable of treating the vast majority of cases as long as other eye health problems arent present.
Getting eye surgery for clear vision is a life-changing decision. Therefore, the search for the perfect eye surgery is an ongoing quest. Only the best procedure, the best eye surgeon, or the best Lasik centre, can help you sail smoothly through this journey. With Centre for Sight’s highly sophisticated technology and infrastructure, the patients get the best treatment, service and care.

What is Femto Lasik?
Femto Lasik is a procedure that requires two different lasers at two stages. The surgeon makes a small corneal flap during the first stage and does the vision correction in the second stage.
With Femto Lasik, the corneal flap is made through the femtosecond laser. This makes the process completely blade-free. Femto Lasik is also known as blade-free Lasik, all laser Lasik, and bladeless Lasik.
While Femto Lasik surgery still uses a laser procedure to create the corneal flap, SMILE does not require the corneal flap. The surgeon performs the procedure without having any effect on the cornea cells, inflicting hardly any pain or discomfort during or after the surgery. Femto Lasik is also known as blade-free Lasik, all-laser Lasik, and bladeless Lasik.
SMILE is different from previous treatment methods because it is a one-laser
vision correction surgery.

Key facts about Contoura Vision eye surgery
Contoura Vision Lasik is a topography-guided technology that is designed to enhance the effects of Lasik. In contoura vision, also known as robotic Lasik, a large flap of 2 mm is created on the top of the cornea. Then another separate laser system (excimer) is used to remove the spectacle error.
The advantages of contoura over conventional Lasik or topography guided Lasik in normal eyes is debatable.
SMILE creates a difference by these factors:
Keyhole surgery: blade free and flapless technology
Least possibility of dry eye as corneal nerves are well preserved
Less chance of retreatment
Very few instances of developing complications: being a flapless surgery, SMILE does not have any chances of flap related complications including wrinkles in flap due to eye rubbing in early postoperative phase or complete displacement of flap due to trauma in late cases
