SMILE eye surgery is an acronym and stands for SMall Incision Lenticular Extraction. SMILE can correct nearsightedness and astigmatism and is the most advanced laser vision correction procedure. Millions of people have experienced the freedom and clarity that SMILE can provide since its FDA approval in 2016.
Without ablation, without a flap, SMILE is a single-step procedure. During the SMILE eye surgery procedure, the ZEISS VisuMax femtosecond laser creates the lenticule, a thin contact lens-shaped layer of tissue. Your surgeon removes the lenticule through a tiny, 3.5 mm incision made on the cornea. This incision is 80% smaller than the flap cut made during conventional LASIK.
The procedure is entirely painless. After SMILE is complete, since there is no flap created, the recovery is quick and comfortable. SMILE also reduces the common dry eye condition that may occur with PRK and LASIK procedures. In effect, it combines the advantages of older laser vision correction options and reduces or eliminates their shortcomings and side effects.
LASIK eye surgery is an acronym and stands for Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis. LASIK can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism and has helped millions of people experience the freedom of clear vision since its FDA approval in the mid 90's.
At Manhattan LASIK Center we offer Ultra-Thin Flap Bladeless LASIK, an advanced version of the Traditional LASIK procedure. By using the ZEISS VisuMax femtosecond technology, our surgeons are able to create the world’s thinnest 80 micron LASIK flaps. The creation of ultra-thin flaps ensures a stronger cornea, better visual results and a significantly reduced chance of developing postoperative dryness.
The flap is then lifted and an excimer laser is used to treat the exposed part of the cornea with the use of ultraviolet light. After the surgery is complete, the corneal flap is put back in place. The flap naturally adheres to the cornea and eliminates the need for stitches. Following the procedure, the majority of our patients are able to go back to work the very next day.LEARN MORE ABOUT BLADELESS LASIK

I have been wearing glasses since I was 5 and being able to see has always been the biggest dream of mine! After doing tons of research and consulting with a couple different doctors, I decided to go with MLC since they offer SMILE, the newest and most recent innovation in laser vision correction, and same day procedure. The full eye exam took about an hour and a half, and the whole procedure took about 15 minutes, absolutely painless! And then tah dah, my life had changed!
