SMILE laser eye surgery - All About Vision
SMILE eye surgery is performed using a VisuMax femtosecond laser. This is proprietary technology of Carl Zeiss Meditec. In the SMILE procedure, the surgeon uses a femtosecond laser to create a small, lens-shaped bit of tissue (lenticule) within the cornea. Then, with the same laser, a small arc-shaped incision is made in the surface of the cornea.
