Relex Smile Laser treatment ( Small incision lenticule extraction) is a procedure that is blade-free performed to eliminate the need of using contact lenses or glasses.
With Relex Smile technique it is possible to fix myopia and astigmatism problems. In this technique there is no need of making a corneal flap as it is widely preferred in LASIK techniques.
As there is no corneal flap made, the healing process is much faster than a LASIK procedure. It only takes a few minutes and in a few days you can have the full result. It is completely blade and flap free.
As a difference from FemtoLASIK, Smile Relex patients do not need to change a few devices as it is performed with only one femtosecond laser device which makes it very practical and easy.
