SMILE is a great option for people who have nearsightedness, especially if they have thin corneas. Unlike LASIK or PRK, SMILE only requires a small incision, which means there’s less disruption to the cornea and faster recovery times. It also has a lower risk of complications compared to other laser eye surgeries. SMILE is a safe and effective way to correct vision problems, and many patients report a high level of satisfaction with the procedure.
If you’re considering SMILE, we recommend scheduling a consultation with one of our eye physicians to determine if it’s the right choice for you. They can evaluate your eyes and medical history and help you decide which type of laser eye surgery is best for your needs.
