SMILE’s Advantages Over Femtosecond LASIK
The SMILE procedure’s advantages over femtosecond LASIK were recently explained by Rupal Shah, MD, of the New Vision Laser Centers, Vadodara, India, in a recent article. The benefits include:
- Only 1 laser required.
- Improved workflow, since the patient does not have to move from one laser to another.
- Use less total energy.
- There is less scatter in the results, since SMILE involves cutting and not ablation.
- A small incision means better biomechanical stability and fewer dry eye symptoms after surgery.
