ReLEx SMILE laser eye surgery
The most minimally invasive form of LASIK to maximise comfort and speed-up recovery
What is SMILE?
SMILE is the latest generation of laser vision correction with a 10-year history and 1,000,000 successful procedures and counting
Who can SMILE help?
Can you see yourself below?
YOU’RE 20 TO 39
You’re frustrated with blurred or double vision, haziness, glare, halos around bright lights, squinting, headaches, or eye strain. You find glasses a hassle or worry about contact lens dangers. If that describes you, I can help you see better without the need for glasses and contact lenses.
YOU’RE 40 TO 49
You have been frustrated with your glasses or contact lenses all your life. Or, you have just begun to become annoyed with your new need for reading glasses. If that’s you, I can help you see clearly without either.
Live a richer life without glasses or contact lenses
SMILE is an ideal solution if you want a safe and effective treatment for short-sightedness, long-sightedness or astigmatism
GAIN CRYSTAL CLEAR VISION AT BOTH DISTANCE AND NEAR
Imagine seeing the world without the need for glasses or contact lenses. You’ll have a freedom that some patients call “life-changing”.
FEEL MORE CONFIDENCE AND CONVENIENCE
Most patients say they wish they’d done it sooner. You may feel more confident and will certainly experience more convenience.
IMAGINE AN AVERAGE DAY WITHOUT GLASSES AND CONTACT LENSES
Awaken ready to face the world free from spectacles. Take a shower without the blurriness. Work and exercise without glasses or the dryness of contact lenses. Avoid the everyday chance of contact lens infection. Fall asleep, without worrying about leaving your lenses in.
BE FREE OF THE BARRIER BETWEEN YOU AND OTHERS
Whether we like it or not, other people rate people based on appearances. Glasses can be an appendage that needlessly divides us. Ditch their limiting nature and live glasses-free.
ALL THE BENEFITS OF LASIK, WITHOUT THE FLAP
ReLEx SMILE offers you the same visual results of LASIK, without any of risk of historical complications associated with the flap used in LASIK. It is, without a doubt, the most advanced approach to treating short-sightedness and astigmatism.
