What are the benefits of SMILE?

SMILE is a very accurate surgery, which gives excellent visual results. 

SMILE has some advantages over other eye laser surgeries such as LASIK and PRK. The first advantage of SMILE is that you are less likely to get dry eye. The second major advantage is that your cornea remains very strong and stable, resulting in less regression and need for re-treatment. 

If you want to know if you’re a good candidate for eye laser surgery, I encourage you to take the suitability quiz. It will take a few minutes of your time and give you a good idea of your suitability and treatment options.
