ReLEx (Refractive Lenticule Extraction) SMILE

ReLex Lasik

ReLex is the latest technique in eye treatment that takes laser vision correction for short-sightedness beyond LASIK. It uses the femtosecond laser to precisely separate and then remove a ‘lenticule’ (tiny disc) of tissue to re-shape cornea and change its lens power.

Similar to LASIK, the corneal surface layer is largely untouched as such the procedures share the same benefit of minimal post-operative discomfort and rapid visual recovery.

Because no excimer treatment is necessary, the laser procedure itself is quicker and there is no ablation.

  • ReLEx :SMILE (Small Incision Lenticule Extraction)

ReLex SMILE in particular offers significant benefits: using the Femtosecond laser the
corneal surface incision (2-5mm) is much smaller, and there is no ‘flap’ so the approximately
20mm cut of LASIK is reduced by more than three-quarters. This method has minimal side
effects and is highly accurate.

  • A Minimally Invasive Refractive Surgery (increased safety and reduce complications)

  • ReLEx has high accuracy and can be customized according to each patient’s needs   

  • Much better for the long term stability of the cornea

  • Much less chance of developing dry eyes
