DescriptionSMILE is an acronym for Small Incision Lenticule Extraction (which is a mouthful and not very easy to remember). SMILE laser eye surgery is performed using a VisuMax femtosecond laser, which is the proprietary technology of Carl Zeiss Meditec. In the SMILE procedure, the surgeon uses a femtosecond laser to create a small, lens-shaped bit of tissue (lenticule) within the cornea. Then, with the same laser, a small arc-shaped incision is made in the surface of the cornea, and the surgeon extracts the lenticule through this incision and discards it. With the tiny lenticule removed, the shape of the cornea is altered, correcting nearsightedness. The corneal incision heals within a few days without stitches, and sharper vision occurs very quickly. SMILE laser eye surgery can correct up to -10.00 diopters (D) of nearsightedness. Candidates must be at least 22 years old, have no more than -0.50 D of astigmatism, and their eyeglass prescription must be stable for at least 12 months. To date, more than 1 million SMILE procedures have been performed worldwide with few complications, according to Carl Zeiss Meditec.
