For years LASIK eye surgery has been the go-to vision corrective surgery for those looking to free themselves from corrective glasses or contacts. As medical procedures continue to advance alternative laser eye surgeries offer advantages over LASIK. Seeta Eye is the only practice between Boston, Manhattan, and Rochester to offer SMILE (Small Incision Lenticule Extraction) Laser Eye Surgery.
Trusted by ophthalmologists SMILE, also known as Flapless or Keyhole LASIK is a quick, painless procedure that is less invasive than traditional LASIK. By creating a smaller incision SMILE only cuts ⅙ of the corneal nerves. Removing the need to create a LASIK-style corneal flap and reducing the risk of flap dislocation by having a more structurally sound incision. Patients recover quickly and experience less dry eye in the months following surgery compared to LASIK patients.
SMILE is a revolutionary procedure to treat patients with myopia (the condition in which nearby objects appear clearly, but far ones do not.) In, some cases myopia may be associated with astigmatism. Through SMILE, it is possible to greatly reduce your reliance on prescription eyewear.
Ideal candidates for Small Incision Lenticule Extraction are above the age of 21, have had stable vision for at least 12 months prior to surgery, are free of any major eye diseases or disorders, and do not have a compromised immune system. During your no-cost, no-obligation consultation we will discuss your individual eye needs. If we feel you are a good candidate for SMILE there will be a follow-up eye exam where we carefully assess your visual acuity and health to determine that SMILE would improve your quality of life over other corrective eye surgeries.
