October 25, 2021

At our Hospital, we offer state of the art instrumentation blended with the expertise of highly skilled doctors that ensures utmost care for your eyes. We are one among the select few centers in India, first in Gurgaon, offering the most advanced laser vision correction procedure technology, SMILE®


SMILE®

The SMILE® technique is performed using the highly precise advanced VisuMax femtosecond laser from Carl Zeiss AG, Germany. This laser system has impressed both the patients and the physicians alike with its sophisticated technology and its precision and reliability. SMILE® using VisuMax promises accuracy down to the nearest micrometer precision.

Unlike all other lasik procedures no flap is created in SMILE, femtosecond laser fashions a thin lenticule in mid stromal area which can be taken out then by a small access key hole in cornea, causing minimum disruptions to the biomechanics of cornea, thus preserving the strength of cornea.

SMILE Advantages:

  • The cornea surface is left untouched, preserving its biomechanical strength and stability better than other techniques. 
  • Inflammation is reduced to negligible as the total laser energy used is up to 10 times lesser than an excimer laser. 
  • Likeliness of dry eyes is significantly lowered, since no flap is created. 
  • There is no use of surgical cutting instruments and involves no change of equipment during the treatment. 
  • Since this procedure is minimally invasive, it involves minimum intervention and therefore less after care is required, enabling you to enjoy your new visual sensation right from the next day, enabling you to get back to your work earliest of all procedures.

FAQs on SMILE®:
