What is SMILE Eye Surgery?

SMILE stands for Small Incision Lenticule Extraction, which is a bladeless procedure and minimally invasive technique. SMILE surgery is suitable for people with or without astigmatism, and it acts as a good alternative to the more well-known LASIK and LASEK treatments. SMILE Eye surgery is a modern, innovative form of keyhole laser eye surgery which helps in correcting the vision for people with higher degrees of short-sightedness.

The main advantage of undergoing SMILE treatment is that unlike LASIK surgery, there is no flap is created during the SMILE procedure, which means that there is no flap created during the SMILE procedure. The patient eye is more comfortable after the procedure has been performed. SMILE surgery is also quick, and the treatments take about 20-30minutes. At Yashoda Hospital, you can expect a quick recovery, as there no bandage lenses required, although doctors may ask you to wear it for extra precaution.

Who are the Eligible Candidates for SMILE Eye Surgery?

The doctor will suggest you go for SMILE Eye surgery if the ophthalmologists find that you are unsuitable for LASEK or LASIK treatment, but SMILE eye surgery is a viable option for you:

  • You have a thinner than normal cornea
  • You may have an intolerance to contact lenses
  • You may be having mild to moderate dry eyes

What to Expect in SMILE Eye surgery?

SMILE laser eye surgery is a unique treatment where we use the latest laser. The procedure works as follows:

  • Firstly, our doctor will administer anaesthetic eye drops to numb the eye so that the entire procedure is painless for you.
  • Next, we place an advanced high-tech laser to place a number of pulses on the cornea’s centre with accurate precision.
  • The pulse from the laser generates tiny bubbles, which are less than one-hundredth of the width of a human hair. These bubbles develop the boundary for the tissue that needs to be removed.
  • The laser develops a small connecting tunnel which enables the surgeon to draw out the tissue, and hence, changes the shape of the cornea to improve your vision.
  • The complete procedure is fulfilled in 20-30 minutes for both eyes, with the laser being utilised for a small proportion of this time.

After the SMILE Eye Surgery

After the SMILE Eye surgery treatment, you can expect your vision to get 80% better within a few hours. The vision can get 100% improved within a few weeks. There are some chances that though recovery is real quick, your vision may get blurry after the operation. That’s completely normal, and our doctors will tell you how to take care of your eye after the operation. You will have to come for follow-up treatments for up to 12 months afterwards.

Are there any Risks with the Procedure?

There are following risks associated with SMILE Eye surgery such as,

  • Opaque bubble layer
  • Suction loss
  • Black spots
  • Incisional tear

However, our expert and trained doctors will ensure that you do not suffer from any complex problems.
