Relex SMILE

Minimally invasive treatment for short-sightedness

Smile Laser Eye Centre Multan is the first hospital in Pakistan to offer Relex SMILE – a FLAP-LESS form of laser eye treatment

Why ReLEx SMILEIt is FLAPLESS, No Nerves Cut/Damaged, No Corneal tissue burning involved, No heat applied to cornea 

 

ReLEx SMILE (simply known as SMILE) stands for Small Incision Lenticule Extraction. It is a less invasive method that allows correction of even higher myopic prescriptions than previously treatable by standard Blade Lasik or Femto Lasik Laser Eye Surgery.

SMILE is used to treat short-sighted patients. It treats very high prescriptions, drier eyes, contact lens intolerance and thinner corneas. The procedure was pioneered by Carl Zeiss Meditec. This revolutionary technique has effectively turned Laser Eye Surgery into a keyhole procedure.

Relex Smile Procedure: How it works

SMILE® is a minimally invasive Laser Vision Correction procedure for myopia and astigmatism correction. During SMILE eye surgery, a lenticule is created inside the cornea using the ZeissVisuMax femtosecond laser. This lenticule is extracted through a small incision created by laser, thereby achieving the desired vision correction.

During the procedure eye anaesthetic drops are used to completely numb the eye. The state-of-the-art Carl Zeiss VisuMax laser places a series of precise pulses in the centre of the cornea with extraordinary 3D placement accuracy. These pulses form bubbles that are less than 1/100th the width of a human hair. These bubbles outline the tissue that needs to be removed to effectively change the shape of the cornea. The laser then creates a tiny connecting tunnel through which the surgeon draws out this tissue.

In ReLEx SMILE, as no flap is created so the healing time is faster than conventional Lasik. The procedure takes a matter of minutes, and the vision is 80% better instantly and reaches 100% within a few hours. No other laser platform in the world has been able to match the accuracy of the Carl Zeiss VisuMax in performing this keyhole Laser Eye Treatment.

Who is Relex Smile most suitable for?

ReLEx SMILE is most suitable for myopic patients. It is even suitable for those who may have been told that they are not suitable candidates for laser eye treatment because of thin corneas, dry eyes, or contact lens intolerance.

Benefits of Relex SMILE

Minimally invasive Laser Vision Correction

To achieve the refractive correction, with ZEISS ReLEx SMILE a small incision of 2 mm is made by laser to remove the lenticule from the intra-stromal layer of the cornea preserving the corneal structure.

Great integrity of the upper corneal layers

With SMILE, the upper corneal layers remains intact. The anterior stroma of the upper corneal layers is responsible for the bio-mechanical integrity of the cornea. In this way the cornea remains naturally strong.

Easy postoperative management

ReLEx SMILE reduces the incidence of infection and epithelial in-growth. This guarantees overall fast healing.

All Femto

ZEISS ReLEx SMILE embodies precision, predictability, reproducibility and perfection. Using the VisuMax femtosecond laser, it creates a pre-calculated lenticule and incision with utmost accuracy and dependability.

Single-Step

ReLEx SMILE saves time and increases comfort for surgeons and patients by performing the refractive correction with one treatment plan and on a single laser. The lenticule inside the cornea and the access incision are created in a single step under constant IOP “Pressure-Free“. Hence no RISK of Floaters after treatment.

Differences between ReLEx SMILE and Femto LASIK

Smile represents the beginning of a new era in refractive surgery. The major difference between Relex SMILE and Femto Lasik is FLAP itself.

  • Relex Smile is FLAPLESS
  • In Femto lasik corneal nerves are cut to make a FLAP. But Relex Smile is FLAPLESS hence No Corneal Nerver Damage
  • Femto lasik involves ablation (corneal tissue burning). In Relex Smile there is no tissue burning and no heat supplied to cornea hence no damage to cornea
