ReLEx SMILE is the most suitable for short-sighted people and people with astigmatism. This method allows treating higher myopic prescriptions than LASIK.
Only one femtosecond laser is used during the whole laser eye surgery. No flap is created, which makes the recovery period shorter. The incision is smaller than 2mm (compared to 20mm of LASIK). Only 3 days are necessary for the surgery.
Both eyes are operated on the same day, preceded by a thorough preoperative eye examination.
