What is SMILE Eye Surgery: Procedure & Benefits Explained
by bhartieyefoundation

Small Incision Lenticule Extraction (SMILE) is a type of eye surgery used to repair refractive errors such as myopia, hypermetropia, astigmatism, and presbyopia. The lens and the cornea perform refraction; SMILE eye surgery modifies the curvature of your cornea, providing you with sharper, crisper, and clearer vision. This operation is still in its early stages.
