Flapless: A less invasive treatment in which a 4mm incision is required instead of a sidecut of 20mm was required for "flap" treatments.
A lenticule is created and removed instead of tissue being ablated as in the process for LASIK treatments, which benefits with in more predictable visual results, safety and less halo and glare symptoms.
A one step process which avoids complications using 2 pieces of equipment and shorter treatment time.
Various types of treatments available depending on needs.
Able to treat different types of eyes & vision.
Wide recognition around the world.
In a single step, the VisuMax creates a refractive lenticule and a small incision of less than 4 mm in the intact cornea-virtually regardless of the ambient conditions or corneal structure.
he lenticule is removed through the small incision. The disruption to the biomechanics of the cornea is minimal. No flap is cut.
The removal of the lenticule changes the form of the cornea, creating the required change for corrected vision.
Side-cut up to 90% shorter
For LASIK, a side-cut of roughly 28 mm had to be created, whereas a small incision about 4 mm is sufficient using ReLEx Smile. This means that the majority of the upper corneal layers remain untouched, which results in less concern with dry eye, regression and inflamation.
An Intralase laser (iFS) is used to create a flap. In the case for SBK LASIK, a microkeratome is used.
The flap is lifted to expose the cornea to receive the treatment.
Using data from the initial examination, an Excimer laser is used to reomove cells to reshape the cornea to show images correctly onto the retina.
The eye is rinsed and the flap is returned back into position.
Superior correction of myopia and astigmatism
Less dry eye symptoms
Less regression of myopia
Less halo and glare
Less post-treatment inflamation than LASIK
Stronger upper corneal layers; therefore aggressive sports and/or combatitive sports can be pursued.
Good visual results
Longer history, more treatments performed
Various types available, less expensive treatments available
Premium Aftercare (3yr)
None to 3 years
(depending on treatment type)
