RELEX-SMILE LASER EYE TREATMENT
FLAPLESS LASER – RELEX-SMILE LASER TECHNOLOGY FOR MYOPIC AND MYOPIC ASTIGMATIC TREATMENT
The ReLEx- Smile eye laser treatment is the 3rd and latest eye laser treatment method. ReLEx-Smile is the premium eye laser treatment for the correction of myopia and astigmatism as well for patients with high myopia and myopic astigmatism in combination with a thin cornea, where Lasik eye laser is not able to be performed. Since there is no flap it is a minimal invasive method, recovery is faster than with the classical LASIK method and due to the lack of a flap the Dry Eye syndrome is not triggered and due to this it is also applicable to moderate dry eyes.
For ReLEx-Smile treatment just the Femtosecond Laser is used. Numbing drops are applied to the eyes before the procedure. Inside of the cornea a lenticule is created within seconds and through a small incision this lenticule is taken out of the cornea. It is a short procedure performed on outpatient basis. The doctor decides after an detailed eye laser application examination according to the patient’s corneal structure, shape and thickness, eye number and general eye health if you are suitable for this treatment.
