SMILE with your eyes

Eyes are our windows to the world. It is not considered a problem to have spectacles. But having a clear vision is more than aesthetics being marred by the frames of the spectacles. It is to have the freedom of sight, the luxury of seeing everything firsthand, rather than having to peek through the slides of glass. When you have an option of choosing a spectacles-free life, there is no reason in putting it off. To be ready for a life without spectacles or contact lenses, Bajaj Eye Care Center now offers the most advanced approach to laser vision correction. With 28 LASIK laser vision correction facilities, Bajaj Eye Care Center was the first to introduce FEMTOSECOND BLADE FREE LASIK in South East Asia and the innovative SMILE technology for spectacle removal.

SMILE – the next level of laser vision correction

The SMILE (Small incision lenticule extraction) method is a step superior to the NoBlade approach of Femto-LASIK. In Femto-LASIK, a laser is used to create the corneal flap, which is then folded back by the surgeon to perform the LASIK procedure. Although more advanced than traditional microkeratome blade LASIK, it still necessitates the creation of a corneal flap in the eye.

In contrast, SMILE is a 100% blade free laser vision correction method which does away with the corneal flap entirely making it a pain free procedure. With this, the risk of displacement of the flap, which can happen either immediately after the procedure, or even years later is completely negated. There is hardly any disturbance to the corneal surface during this procedure, thus ensuring that there is very minimal pain or discomfort.
