SMILE (SMall Incision Lenticule Extraction) is a laser vision correction for myopia (nearsightedness) and astigmatism, providing LASIK-like outcomes in a minimally invasive procedure. A laser is used to create a thin contact lens shape layer just beneath the surface of the eye and then a small opening through which that layer is removed, correcting your vision.

SMILE (SMall Incision Lenticule Extraction) Reviews (16)

Surgery was quick and the recovery was also so quick. I was really terrified before the experience, but am glad I went through with it.


Everything went as smoothly as possible.


All staffs are professional and friendly.


No glasses for a woman 55, waking up being able to see is wonderful.


I can see! It is miraculous the improvement in my vision.


Worth every dime! I am so happy I got the SMILE procedure. Everything was perfect! [Single best thing is...] Finally being able to wake up in the morning and seeing my alarm clock next to my bed.


Not only was the process painless, so was the procedure and after care! The staff well prepared me the day of, the doctor was sure to explain every step as it occurred, and has THE BEST bedside manner of any doctor I have ever had. Overall, I can't express how thankful I am to everyone who was involved, it was the best decision ever and it was the easiest to make! I went from not being able to see two steps in front of me, to seeing everything! I have never seen so clearly in my life, and that is with glasses and contacts throughout since the age of 8. Every day is better and clearer, I can't imagine deciding not to have the procedure done.


It was best experience I ever had. It was all gone in half a day. The doctor and staff are some of the best I've ever seen. No pain whatsoever.


Extremely pleased with my SMILE surgery experience. I felt full trust in this team and recovery was very quick and much easier than I expected. Thank you for you excellent work!! I have perfect vision without glasses or contact lenses!


Dr. Neatrour was very professional and personable. All of the staff were help and friendly. [Single best thing is...] 20/15 vision!


[Single best thing is...] Fast recovery Essentially PAINLESS! I am so happy with being able to see not only 20/20, but 20/15! Never in my life did I think I'd be able to see this well without an artificial lens either in my eye or out in front. I highly recommend this to anyone!


Dr. N was professional and nice. He explained the procedure, and what to expect before and after, which was helpful.


I am highly satisfied with my experience from consult through to my first follow up after SMILE procedure. The facility is very clean and organized. They have plenty of staff available so your wait times are minimal. The Dr who performed the surgery was very professional, kind and made sure I knew everything that would happen, did not rush me out of the office, which was nice! During the surgery he told me every step as it was being done which really helped put my nerves at ease. Haze was wonderful as well, always available to answer our questions and made sure we understood all instructions before the procedure.


I really felt like the surgeon knew what he was doing, and I felt extremely calmed by him during the procedure. He talked me through the whole thing and communicated well throughout the surgery. The only problem I had was at my follow up visits. They were extremely rushed and I didn't feel like I got enough time to speak with the Dr. My vision was very poor and this procedure truly changed my life. The fact that I can just open my eyes and see still feels like a dream. It has positively affected every aspect of my life and I would never go back!


Yes [I am extremely satisfied]. Wish I would have done it a long time ago! [Single best thing is...] Waking up and not reaching for my glasses first thing.


Extremely friendly staff and Throughout the process they made sure I was informed of every step. Great from pre-screen to post-op!
