What is REFLEX(R) SMILE?
SMILE (Small Incision Lenticule Extraction) eye surgery, also known as RELEX, is a minimally invasive procedure to treat astigmatism and mild to severe nearsightedness. This trusted procedure has been performed over 2,000,000 times over this past decade alone. The Kelly Vision Center pioneered this technology and has remained one of the few vision centers in the Manhattan and Garden City area to provide custom vision correction procedures.
How Does SMILE Surgery Work?
This procedure uses an ultra-fast femtosecond laser that modifies the shape of the cornea. For those with nearsightedness, the cornea is either curved or slightly too long. This condition causes light to focus incorrectly, which leads to blurry distance vision. The SMILE procedure differentiates itself from the older Lasik procedure by adjusting the shape of the cornea from inside to focus light properly. Traditional Lasik involves a surgical flap made on the eye’s surface and requires more healing time than SMILE.
Additional benefits of the SMILE Lasik by Kelley Vision Center in Manhattan and Garden City include:
- The surgery is done without blades and is gentle and fast
- A minimally invasive procedure that causes little to no pain
- Permanently improved vision.
- You can return to your routine a day after their procedure
- There is less dry eye and discomfort than other types of surgery
- The freedom of never having to use glasses or contact lenses again
- SMILE is FDA approved to treat astigmatism and nearsightedness
Eye Surgery That is Precise, Safe, & Fast
At Kelly Vision Center, SMILE Lasik surgery is performed in our Manhattan and Garden City, New York offices with meticulous accuracy and care. It is a one-step, one laser procedure that combines the safety of traditional Lasik with even greater comfort. A small key-hole incision allows Dr. Kelly to remove a small piece of corneal tissue with advanced, targeted laser technology in about 25 seconds. With the tissue removed, the cornea is reshaped, and your vision is corrected.
