One thing that distinguishes SMILE LASIK from other procedures is that it is a flapless procedure, which makes it different from LASIK. Unlike LASIK, SMILE LASIK does not require the creation of a flap.

SMILE LASIK is a procedure that reshapes the cornea, thereby correcting nearsightedness and astigmatism, allowing you to achieve the vision you desire. The procedure takes only 10-15 minutes to complete, making it minimally invasive and simple. You can correct your eyesight quickly and easily and get back to doing what you love.

How is SMILE LASIK Different from LASIK?

Although SMILE LASIK and LASIK may seem like very similar procedures, they have some differences. One of these is that LASIK corrects nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. SMILE LASIK can only correct nearsightedness and astigmatism.

Am I a Good SMILE LASIK Candidate?

Because SMILE LASIK is a surgical procedure, it’s not something everyone can undergo. The only way to determine if you’re a good candidate for SMILE LASIK is to schedule a consultation at Mueller Vision in the Ft. Worth area. During your consultation we will conduct a comprehensive eye exam, including measuring your pupils, visual acuity, and more, to ensure that you’re a candidate for SMILE LASIK.

What Can I Expect During SMILE LASIK?

During the SMILE LASIK eye surgery procedure at Mueller Vision in Ft. Worth, we will begin by welcoming you and ensuring you feel comfortable. If you’re nervous, we may offer you a light sedative to help you relax. Once we go through any additional questions, we will begin the procedure.

Many patients notice immediate improvements in their vision following SMILE LASIK. The SMILE LASIK procedure only takes about ten to fifteen minutes to complete and is an incredible way to enhance your vision.

What is the Recovery from SMILE LASIK Like?

Once you’ve had SMILE LASIK, you’ll go home to recover. Although it is a surgical procedure, you don’t have to worry about an extended or lengthy recovery. Many patients find they can return to work the day after having SMILE LASIK, but every patient is different. A key component of your SMILE LASIK recovery is attending all follow-up appointments. After SMILE LASIK, most patients can drive, go to work, wear makeup, and participate in their favorite sports just a few days later.
