Refractive - Smile

Envisage yourself experiencing what you really want for yourself. Have you refrained from simple joys of life for no reason? The joy of playing with a toddler or the joy of drenching yourself in rain or the joy of under-water scuba diving, all these because you had to worry about those glasses or contacts lenses you are wearing.
Millions across the world rely on spectacles or lenses for precise vision. And you just might be one of them. The solution is at your doorstep - advanced laser refractive technology can free you from your dependence on eye glasses, helping you to lead an active life.
Mehta International Eye Institute is proud to be one of the select centers in India to offer you the most advanced 3rd generation SMILE procedure. ReLEx SMILE is a breakthrough in laser vision correction offering a whole new level of precision, safety and comfort. In fact, you might just experience the world through a whole new lens-your natural ones.
Unlike the conventional procedures, ReLEx SMILE involves the creation of an extremely thin 3D layer in your intact cornea, corresponding to your refractive number that needs correction. This is then extracted out through a small keyhole incision of about 2-4mm only. As a result, the cornea gets reshaped to correspond to the ideal shape for correct vision. Entirely laser controlled, it is done in a few seconds- precise, safe and comfortable.
The minimally invasive incision also suggests fewer transacted nerves in the corneal surface and therefore to significantly reduced severity of dry eye syndrome. Another advantage: a small incision can further reduce the incidence of infection, epithelial in growth or flap complications- and help the epithelium heal much more quickly.
The ReLEx SMILE technique is performed using the highly precise and 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. ReLEx SMILE using VisuMax promises accuracy down to the nearest micrometer precision.
Why SMILE? :
  • 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 day one.
