First of it kind in Telangana &  Andhra Pradesh at RAMESH LASIK AND LASER CENTRE. ReLEx SMILE (Refractive Lenticule Extraction, SMall Incision Lenticule Extraction) is a minimally invasive approach with advantage of 100% bladeless form of laser eye surgery which does not require the cornea to be ‘flapped’. SMILE is a relatively new refractive procedure designed to treat Myopia (Short sight) and Astigmatism. ReLEx SMILE is flapless, painless, bladeless procedure fully computer operated using a femtosecond laser. The ReLEx SMILE technique is performed using the highly precise advanced VisuMax femtosecond laser from Carl Zeiss AG, Germany. The SMILE procedure is the 3rd generation of laser vision correction after PRK and LASIK Eye Surgery.

  • Bladeless
  • Painless
  • Minimally Invasive
  • ReLEx SMILE Procedure takes only 15 minutes

ReLEx SMILE Procedure

ReLEx SMILE procedure takes only a few minutes. The SMILE procedure uses a femtosecond laser to create a disc, or lenticule of tissue within the cornea. The lenticule is separated from the overlying and underlying cornea with a thin blunt spatula. The lenticule is then extracted with forceps through a small corneal incision.

ReLEx SMILE Highlights

  • The cornea surface is left untouched
  • Inflammation is reduced to negligible levels
  • Likeliness of dry eyes is significantly lowered
  • No flap is created
  • There is no use of surgical cutting instruments
  • involves no change of equipment during the treatment
  • Minimally invasive
  • Less after care is required


Who is It for?

An ideal candidate would be:

  • Above 18 years of age
  • Power should be stable for one year and your eyes should be healthy otherwise
  • Through examination and few special tests will be carried out to assess the suitability of your eyes

The very best for your eyes

  • Flapless
  • Bladeless
  • Painless

ReLEx SMILE is a further advancement over LASIK / Femto-LASIK

ReLEx SMILE is a breakthrough in laser vision correction offering a whole new level of precision, safety and comfort. In fact, you might just experience the world through a whole new lens-your natural ones. ReLEx SMILE is a pain free, minimally invasive approach with the advantage of a 100% blade–free laser vision correction. This procedure involves no corneal flaps; refractive changes are made in the intact cornea itself.

Unlike the conventional procedures, ReLEx SMILE involves the creation of an extremely thin 3D layer in your intact cornea, corresponding to your refractive number that needs correction. This is then extracted out through a small keyhole incision of about 2-4mm only. As a result, the cornea gets reshaped to correspond to the ideal shape for correct vision. Entirely laser controlled, it is done in a few seconds- precise, safe and comfortable.

The ReLEx SMILE technique is performed using the highly precise advanced VisuMax femtosecond laser from Carl Zeiss AG, Germany. This laser system has impressed both the patients and the physicians alike with its sophisticated technology and its precision and reliability. ReLEx SMILE using VisuMax promises accuracy down to the nearest micrometer precision.

Lasik Overview

LASIK is an outpatient surgical procedure for the correction of refractive errors in the eye (Myopia, Hypermetropia and Astigmatism). Excimer laser is used to change the curvature of the corea to improve the ray of light to focus on the retina. Excimer laser is a cool laser i.e it does not generate heat in the cornea. The laser energy destroys the intermolecular bonds in the corneal tissue resulting in tissue removal.
