ReLEx SMILE Package

ReLEx SMIILE, the latest generation of laser refractive surgery, is known as the least invasive treatment for myopia and astigmatism. The most significant advantage of ReLEx SMILE is the fact that the treatment takes place without a corneal flap.

Age Limit for ReLEx SMILE Surgery
  • You Should be older than 18 years.
Surgical Procedure

In ReLEx SMILE technique, two incisions are created at a depth of 110 to 130 microns of the cornea. These two incisions form a small, lens-shaped tissue (lenticule) within the cornea. By removing the lenticule through a 2-4 mm incision, the cornea is reshaped and the refractive error is corrected.

Who Are NOT Good Candidates for ReLEx SMILE Surgery
  1. People with hyperopia (farsightedness)
  2.  Pregnant women
  3. Patients with rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, severe glaucoma, herpes simplex infection, or severe and uncontrolled diabetes
Pre-Operative Preparation
  1. Wash your eyelids and eyelashes the night before surgery.
  2. Do not wear makeup 48 hours before surgery.
  3. Wear light and comfortable clothing on the day of surgery.
  4. Do not wear perfume or cologne on the day of surgery.
  5. Do not wear contact lenses 48 hours before surgery.
  6. If you feel anxious, take a sedative before surgery.
Post-Operative Care
  1. The time of the first visit after the operation is 24 hours later.
  2. Visiting at regular intervals during the first 6 months

  9. To determine the need for reoperation, you must wait until the time of stabilization, during two consecutive visits and wait for at least 3 months.
