The latest and most effective technology in vision correction through the cornea
This new technology is considered to have revolutionized refractive surgery by allowing for the first time ever the performance of corrective surgery for myopia without having to raise a corneal flap. Now it is possible to correct myopia and astigmatism intra-corneally without need for opening a circular layer on the corneal surface thanks to the latest laser technology in corneal refractive surgery (Lasik). This ReLEx SMILE technique (Small Incision Lenticular Extraction), that uses the femtosecond laser, allows the surgeon to modify the cornea’s degree of refraction/optical power through a 2mm micro-incision. This development is a spectacular quantum leap in this surgery since it replaces an incision or a layered cut, measuring 20mm in diameter with an incision ten times smaller, making this technique the safest and least invasive for correcting vision.
This new technology represents a radical departure from older technologies and eliminates the basic side effects, resulting from Lasik surgery, such as the risk of displacement of the open superficial layer during the procedure, as well as the possible risk of the dry eye syndrome. The Femto- Smile technique, which represents the latest technological breakthrough in corneal surgery, employs the femtosecond laser, which is currently the most precise in ocular surgery, enabling the surgeon to mark out, from outside the eye, the intra-corneal lens or the portion of the cornea that needs to be extracted to correct the refractive error. Once this portion of the lens is marked out, the femtosecond laser is used to make a 2mm micro-incision on one side of the cornea, through which the surgeon removes the previously marked out internal lens. An additional advantage of the femtosecond laser is that it is used exclusively until the surgical intervention is completed with no further need for the use of any other complementary laser.”
