There’s no doubt you’ve heard of LASIK, the laser eye surgery that can make glasses and contact lenses a thing of the past. For certain patients, SMILE is the new and improved alternative to this popular procedure. SMILE, which Dr. Wu calls “LASIK 2.0,” can achieve comparable visual results as LASIK with less post-surgery dryness and no risk for flap dislocation. This innovative procedure might be just what you need to start each day with clear vision and a smile.
What is SMILE Eye Surgery?
SMILE stands for Small Incision Lenticule Extraction and is an eye surgery that corrects nearsightedness and astigmatism. Myopia, or nearsightedness, occurs when either the eyeball is too long or the cornea is too curved. As a result, light doesn’t focus correctly on the retina, and the patient struggles to see faraway objects clearly.
Myopia is the most common vision impairment in people under 40. It forces countless people to rely on glasses or contact lenses to navigate everyday life, which may limit some of their activities. SMILE eye surgery frees many patients from the inconvenience of depending on corrective lenses, allowing them to live fully and see clearly.
Our Advanced Technology for SMILE
When considering vision correction, finding the right procedure is only part of the decision–the other part is finding the right eye surgeon. Dr. Wu at One EyeCare uses only the latest technology and techniques to ensure the best outcomes for her patients. By using advanced technology and prioritizing detailed assessments of each patient’s eyes, she can offer effective vision correction for even the most complex cases.
Dr. Wu believes in finding a suitable plan for every patient. She often takes on challenging cases that other eye surgeons have declined, helping these patients achieve lasting vision correction even after they’d been told they were ineligible for laser eye surgery. Additionally, she helps many people reach an optimal outcome if a previous procedure elsewhere did not yield satisfactory results.
