What are the pros and cons: LASIK vs PRK/LASEK vs SMILE? [VIDEO]

So you’ve learned a little bit about Laser Eye Surgery and the incredible benefits it has to offer. You’ve got to get a clear picture of how it works: by removing tissue in the cornea and therefore permanently changing your eye’s focusing power. And after visiting various clinics and doing your research, you’ve discovered that despite the huge list of brand names of treatments — including UltraLASIK, Accu-wave LASIK, Custom LASIK, and Zyoptix — there are actually only three main treatment types,… Read more

ReLEx SMILE: The latest innovation in Laser Eye Surgery

If you look at pretty much every field of surgery — cosmetic, restorative, dental, vascular — you’ll notice a few common trends.

Will LASIK Eye Surgery Be Replaced With SMILE?

LASIK has been around for 25 years and has allowed millions of people around the globe to experience freedom from glasses and contacts.

One of the newest innovations in corrective eye surgery is ReLEx SMILE. Like LASIK, SMILE uses femtosecond laser technology which alters the shape of the cornea to… Read more

Does SMILE Laser Eye Surgery hurt?

In our experience with patients, the worst part of Laser Eye Surgery always comes before the treatment. This is pretty much how it goes for most big events in your life, even those that do actually involve some level of pain. It’s the anxiety of sitting and waiting to speak in front of a room full of people. The sleepless nights worrying about starting a new job. The anticipation and fear of knowing in a few months you’ll have surgery. It’s ironic,… Read more

SMILE vs LASIK: What’s the difference?

Chances are it’s happened to you. You asked a friend to recommend you a film, and without hesitation, they came out with a name you didn’t recognise; one they claim is up there with the best of the year — a “must see” that they guarantee you will love. In fact, they were sitting on the edge of their seat throughout the whole thing. And when the twist at the end came, it was the last thing they ever expected. Before they gave… Read more

Laser Eye Surgery advances

Imagine laying beneath a machine that is about to use invisible lasers to permanently remove tissue from your eye and transform your vision from terrible to perfect within a few minutes. It sounds crazy — like some far-fetched idea from a science fiction novel. But it’s far from it. In fact, this was the reality of Laser Eye Surgery twenty years ago, when it first hit the scene and took the vision correction field by storm. Since then, the procedure has only… Read more

Sky Diver Jakob

One week after having ReLEx SMILE surgery, Jakob Anguiers, skydiver and amateur Youtuber, was hurtling towards the ground at a speed of around 125mph. Although he’d done many jumps in the past, this was the first time he’d done so in what he calls Ultra 4k definition, and crucially, without having to constantly worry about his contact lenses. Think about it. You put your gear on, go through all the preparations and safety checks, and board one of the smallest planes you’ve ever… Read more

Options for laser eye surgery

Today, it’s hard enough to choose what wine to drink and TV series to watch, never mind whether to have laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis or small incision lenticule extraction to fix your vision. And to make things worse, we’re wired to weigh up every single option before making our decision. The marketing departments of high street clinics know this all too well, conjuring up names like UltraLASIK, Zyoptix, and Accu-wave LASIK to attract attention and bring more unknowing customers through their doors. But just like… Read more

Laser eye treatments

Have you ever read a description of a new product, treatment, or therapy, and immediately switched off due to an excess of overcomplicated jargon? I mean, what’s the point in using complex and technical language if they know it will fly straight over the heads of the vast majority of people? It’s a good question — and one that reveals a lot about the company or person behind the particular product or service they are selling. You’ll find this when browsing the Laser… Read more
