Are you ready to try the latest innovation in laser vision correction? Yes, it’s finally here! Femto Smile is the third generation of LASIK technology, and it carries promising applications for those who want to treat nearsightedness.
Femto Smile, also known as ReLEx Smile or Femto smile 3D, is a surgical procedure to correct nearsightedness or myopia by using the Visumax femtosecond laser platform from the German manufacturer Carl Zeiss. Unlike traditional LASIK and Femto LASIK, Femto Smile doesn’t require using blades or creating a flap in the cornea.
The technology of Femto Smile was first introduced in 2011, but it took another 5 years for Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to give it approval. Today, Femto Smile accounts for about 10% of all laser eye correction procedures worldwide.
Femto Smile is a minimally invasive surgery that highly competes with other laser vision correction procedures, especially when it comes to accuracy, safety, speed, and efficiency. Below are the main benefits of this technology:
The procedure of Femto Smile takes only 10-20 minutes to complete, and you can undergo the procedure for both of your eyes at the same time without a problem. The steps of the Femto Smile procedure include:
Your doctor starts the procedure by administering numbing eye drops to prevent pain and discomfort.
Next, your doctor will use a special machine called ZEISS VisuMax ® to administer a femtosecond laser. The goal is to make a small incision in the cornea and create mini lens tissue that precisely suits the eye of the patient.
Finally, your doctor will remove the lens tissue and correct the refractive error by changing the shape of the cornea.
Femto Smile is a safe procedure for most cases, but some people may experience things like:

The cost varies according to each case, the location of the surgery, and the skill and experience of the physician.
In case there are problems in the cornea of the eye or glaucoma.
– In Femto-Smile procedures, the doctors use a type of laser called the “femtosecond laser”.
– This type of laser reshapes the cornea until it returns to its normal shape.
– The femtosecond laser is characterized by its ability to pass through the surface of the cornea and reach the lower membranes to remove the damaged part of the lens without causing damage to the outer surface of the cornea.
– Not all ophthalmologists can perform vision correction operations using the Femto-Smile technique.
– This technique requires high precision, meaning that you need to find a doctor with long experience in performing Femto-Smile to reach the desired results after the procedure.
