ZEISS SMILE Eye Surgery, short for Small Incision Lenticular Extraction (SMILE), is a vision correction procedure that corrects nearsightedness and astigmatism. SMILE is the most advanced laser vision correction procedure available.
Since receiving FDA approval, SMILE has helped millions of patients experience better vision than ever before while achieving visual freedom. Unlike LASIK, SMILE does not use ablation or a flap to achieve vision correction.
During the procedure, the ZEISS VisuMax femtosecond laser creates a lenticule. A lenticule is a layer of tissue about the size and shape of a contact lens. Your surgeon will create a tiny 3.5 mm incision in the cornea and remove the lenticule through it. The incision created during SMILE is 80% smaller than the flap made during a conventional LASIK procedure.
There’s no pain during SMILE. Patients can look forward to a quick and comfortable recovery after the procedure. After SMILE, you can look forward to crisp, clear vision!
Thanks to the tiny flap created during the procedure, you don't have to worry about dry eyes, so you'll be comfortable and get back to what you love sooner. Combine that with better vision than you ever achieved with visual aids, and it's easy to see why millions have chosen to have SMILE.
Not all LASIK procedures are created equal. At Manhattan LASIK Center, we offer Ultra-Thin Flap Bladeless LASIK.
LASIK is an acronym for Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis. Ultra-Thin Flap Bladeless LASIK is an advanced version of a traditional LASIK procedure that uses ZEISS VisuMax femtosecond technology to correct refractive errors, including nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. With this technology, our surgeons can create the world’s thinnest 80-micron LASIK flaps.
By making these ultra-thin flaps, patients have stronger corneas, better visual results, and a dramatically reduced chance of developing post-procedure dry eye.LEARN MORE ABOUT BLADELESS LASIK

I got laser vision correction with a new procedure called SMILE. It is very similar to LASIK, but less invasive and is less likely to have “dry eyes” side effects. Our world is so beautiful, and I want to see all of it bright and clear!
