WHAT IS ReLEx SMILE?
Advanced ReLEx SMILE is a type of laser vision correction that recently became available in the US. It offers the same great advantages as LASIK or PRK, and for some patients is a better option. SMILE has a proven track record, with over 700,000 treatments performed overseas. Dr. Haddad was the first surgeon in Michigan to perform SMILE and Laser Eye Institute is the first and only LASIK center in Michigan to offer SMILE for eligible patients today.
BLADELESS. FLAPLESS. GENTLE.
The VisuMax laser is used to complete the entire SMILE procedure. Utilizing the worlds fastest laser for vision correction, it takes under 35 seconds to apply treatment.
The entire SMILE vision correction treatment occurs just underneath the eye’s surface. This eliminates the process of flap creation that occurs during LASIK. This unique approach improves upon LASIK’s quick recovery time allowing you, to get back to you, even faster.
A curved design matching the natural curvature of the eye combined with a reduced treatment zone, results in a gentler, more comfortable experience.
Dr. Haddad was the first Michigan eye surgeon to perform the SMILE procedure in 2016. Dr. Haddad is proud to be the first eye surgeon to offer SMILE in Michigan. In fact, Dr. Haddad had brought the first VisuMax laser in Michigan back in mid 2014,
and had been refining his technique with the laser in performing nearly 2,000 of the most advanced LASIK flaps with the device.
Laser Eye Institute is currently the first and only laser vision correction center in Michigan to offer SMILE.
