HOW IT WORKS
BEFORE THE PROCEDURE
Anaesthetic eye drops are administered to numb the eye and ensure a painless treatment.
DURING THE PROCEDURE
Pulses are placed on the cornea’s center with extraordinary precision with the help of an innovative laser.
They create tiny bubbles to create the outline for the tissue that needs to be removed.
The laser creates a small connecting tunnel that allows the specialist to draw out the tissue. This changes the shape of the cornea and thus improves your vision.
The whole procedure is completed in less than 15 minutes.
AFTER THE PROCEDURE
The recovery time is different for everyone, but on average, most people resume their tasks in just a few days!
After a few follow-ups and post-procedural protocols, you’ll be ready to live life on your own terms.

What patrons have to say
OUR EYE SPECIALISTS
How long does the SMILE vision correction procedure last?
Here is the good news! The results of the SMILE vision correction procedure are permanent. However, the effect of the ageing process on the crystalline lens – present in the interior of the eye – can cause people to experience changes in their near vision irrespective of this procedure. These near vision changes are treatable and can be corrected.
Is the SMILE vision correction procedure painful?
No! The SMILE procedure is not painful. The eyes are numbed with anaesthetic drops before the procedure. There is always a chance to feel a slight sensation of pressure while undergoing the procedure, but with expert assistance, people feel very relaxed and comfortable. Post-procedure effects may result in the eyes feeling dry or uncomfortable, which heals over time.
Is the SMILE procedure safe?
Yes. SMILE has been proven to be a safe and effective method of vision correction. It is non-invasive, which makes it a safe process. It is the least disruptive to the surface of the eye of any vision correction method and has achieved a high satisfaction rate from the people who have opted for it.
