ZEISS SMILE

South Florida’s Premier SMILE Center: The Next Evolution in LASIK Surgery

Most people know that LASIK vision correction is an effective way to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. However, not everyone is a good candidate for this procedure. Likewise, there are other vision correction options that can produce excellent vision results – possibly even better results than LASIK. SMILE (Small Incision Lenticule Extraction) is one such procedure.

If you are nearsighted, with or without astigmatism, ZEISS SMILE might be an excellent option to improve your vision.

How ZEISS SMILE Works

Similar to LASIK, ZEISS SMILE is performed with laser technology. However, instead of needing two lasers, SMILE is done with one laser: the VisuMax femtosecond laser. Because it can be done using a single laser in a single step, SMILE is quicker and can be more precise than other vision correction methods. 

  • First, our doctors numb your eyes to minimize any discomfort.
  • When your eyes are ready, the VisuMax laser is used to create a lens-shaped lenticule (small section of tissue) within your cornea.
  • Then a very small keyhole incision is made on the corneal surface so the lenticule can be gently removed, thereby reshaping your cornea and correcting nearsightedness with or without astigmatism.
  • The incision will heal naturally and quickly, without the need for stitches.

Why does ZEISS SMILE make Dr. Marc Bosem SMILE in south Florida? Because this technology is taking vision correction results to a whole new level.

Limitations of ZEISS SMILE
