Salt Lake City SMILE Laser Eye Surgery For Nearsightedness & Astigmatism Expands

Differing from traditional LASIK surgery, the Small Incision Lenticule Extraction (SMILE) now performed at the practice requires a smaller opening in the eye, which minimizes the risk of complications and reduces recovery time. SMILE also offers a higher degree of precision, making it an ideal option for patients with high prescriptions or thin corneas.

Clear Vision Institute’s announcement of the new laser vision correction service comes as more Americans than ever before turn to laser eye treatments to correct their vision. The American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery’s most recent estimates suggest that over 700,000 LASIK procedures are performed annually in the US.

The growing profusion of LASIK procedures is in large part due to the high satisfaction rates amongst patients opting for laser vision correction, explains Clear Vision Institute. According to the American Refractive Surgery Council, over 96% of patients who have undergone SMILE surgery reported being satisfied with the results.

A minimally invasive procedure, SMILE uses a femtosecond laser to create a small, precise incision in the cornea. The surgeon then removes a small piece of tissue from the cornea, which reshapes the eye and corrects vision problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.

Compared to other procedures, SMILE offers patients a shorter recovery time, reduced risk of dry eye, and a smaller incision, resulting in less trauma to the eye. As such, patients report much quicker vision restoration following their surgery.

“We are thrilled to add the SMILE procedure to our extensive range of laser vision correction procedures to our patients,” said Clear Vision Institute’s Dr. Bala Ambati, a cataract and laser eye surgeon and cornea specialist, with 15 years of experience in clinical practice. “This is state-of-the-art technology that will revolutionize the way we perform LASIK eye surgery. We are excited to be at the forefront of this innovative procedure in Utah.”
