Recently, Dr. Dan Haddad from the Laser Eye Institute of Troy performed his 1,000th SMILE LASIK procedure. SMILE LASIK is the latest generation of Laser Vision Correction (LASIK) and is the smarter choice for better vision. Dr Dan Haddad was the first in Michigan to perform SMILE back in March 2017 and to this day, he continues to lead and perfect the art and science of vision correction.
Dr. Dan Haddad’s response to this milestone moment:
“I love the SMILE procedure because it’s flapless and a very comfortable experience for my patients. There is less chance of dry eyes and patients can resume normal activities the very next day!”– Dr. Dan Haddad of the Laser Eye Institute
SMILE is a bladeless, flapless, and hands down the most comfortable vision correction procedure that is available today. While similar to LASIK, SMILE is less invasive and has an even faster recovery time, meaning you can get back to your daily routine the very next day! The procedure is performed on the world’s most advanced laser system – ZEISS VisuMax
Globally, SMILE is quickly surpassing LASIK as the most popular type of laser vision correction.
The illustration below easily compares PRK & LASIK to SMILE:
*The blue line shows the areas of the eye impacted by each treatment type, illustrating why SMILE is so minimally invasive and offers faster recovery.
Given the quick visual recovery, less invasiveness, and 98%+ success rates, one can quickly see why SMILE is becoming the now and future of laser vision correction.
If you are nearsighted and/or have slight astigmatism, you are probably a candidate for SMILE. Your best bet is to schedule a complimentary SMILE LASIK consultation at the Laser Eye Institute, and Dr. Dan Haddad will determine if you are a great candidate or not.
