SMILE stands for small lenticule extraction. It is an advanced form of laser vision correction surgery, most suitable for severe myopia. It is a minimally invasive procedure that doesn’t involve using a blade. The procedure does not involve creating a corneal flap like other laser eye surgeries. Instead, a thin corneal lenticule is created to access the tissues that need to be removed to correct the vision.
This technique delivers excellent results for the treatment of myopia. The effectiveness of the results for hyperopia and astigmatism treatment are yet to be clearly established. If you have severe myopia and want to get clear vision, contact Pristyn Care to undergo SMILE surgery in Thiruvananthapuram at a reasonable price.
