SMILE - Minimally Invasive Laser Vision Correction
Zaffater Eye Center is excited to offer the latest in minimally invasive laser vision correction - ReLEx®
SMILE. Dr. Zaffater is one of the few Laser Vision Correction Specialist in the Ark-la-tex who performs
this advanced laser vision correction procedure at Willis-Knighton Eye Institute.
With ReLEx® SMILE, a lenticule and a small incision of < 6 mm is created inside the intact cornea,
enabling an 80% smaller side-cut and 30% smaller cap cut, as compared to a LASIK flap.
Explore the Advantage of ReLEx® SMILE
Minimally invasive surgery
With ReLEx® SMILE, a lenticule and a small incision of < 6 mm is created inside the cornea. The
preservation of the upper corneal layers and the possibility for fewer transected nerves may
preserve biomechanical stability and reduced the incidence of transient dry eye syndrome.
With ZEISS ReLEx® SMILE, the entire correction is performed as a single-step: one laser, one treatment
plan and one laser process.
ReLEx® SMILE stands is performed using the VisuMax® femtosecond laser, which provides high precision,
proven outcomes, predictability and ease of use.
