Laser vision correction is an affordable option when it comes to correcting your vision and should represent a fantastic investment in the long-term future of your eyes. Most patients agree that the benefits that it offers far outweigh the one-time costs involved in treatment. While there are several laser vision correction techniques, SMILE is one of the most advanced. This cutting-edge treatment combines the safety of conventional laser vision surgery with even greater comfort and precision.
About SMILE Laser Vision Correction
When most people think of laser vision correction, they think of the procedure known as LASIK. SMILE laser vision correction is very similar to LASIK but does not involve the creation of a flap in the cornea. The omission of this part of the technique means that there is no potential for flap-related complications which are common in LASIK patients. The incision that is made into the cornea for SMILE is also around 80% smaller than that used in LASIK. This helps to maintain the structural integrity of the cornea, keeping it strong and stable and ensuring the greatest possible clarity of vision.
SMILE laser vision correction in Paramus, NJ, is a straightforward procedure that takes around just 10 minutes per eye. This minimally invasive procedure includes your surgeon removing a small, lens-shaped area of tissue from the corneal called the lenticule. Removing the lenticule changes the way light passes onto the cornea, enabling it to be refracted correctly so that the patient’s natural vision is improved. The entire process is carried out using anesthetic eye drops to ensure a pain-free, comfortable experience.
SMILE Laser Vision Correction – An Investment in Your Future Vision
Many people initially discount laser vision correction due to the costs involved. However, when you compare it to the ongoing expenses incurred by wearing glasses or contact lenses – including maintenance or replacement of your prescription lenses – for years or decades, most patients find that laser vision correction surgery will save them money in the long run.

This gives them the freedom to live life to the full without worrying about prescription eyewear.
