Procedures

  • In ReLEx SMILE, the Femtosecond laser is used to create a lenticule in the inner layers of the cornea.
  • The Femtosecond laser is able to penetrate the surface of the cornea without any cutting involved or causing any damage to the surface layers.
  • A small, micro incision (3-4mm) is created at the side of the cornea.
  • The lenticule that was created earlier is gently removed through the small micro incision made.
  • With the lenticule removed, the cornea shape is altered, which also changes the power of the eye.
