SMILE® Pro is a minimally invasive procedure and a gentle treatment option in eye laser surgery.

The new Visumax 800 Laser uses the latest in technology offering the SMILE procedure to be performed comfortably and faster than ever before.

In SMILE® Pro, which is a keyhole procedure, a small piece of tissue (called a lenticule) is created inside the cornea with the laser and removed through a small incision. This means many of the layers of the cornea are unaffected and allows fast healing. In addition, there are no flap-related complications.

Prior to the treatment anaesthetic eye drops are applied to the eye and an eyelid holder is used to prevent the eye from blinking during the procedure.

Visual recovery in general is fast. Patients can normally return to work, shower, or apply makeup shortly after surgery. Driving and sports activities are usually possible within 24-48 hours.


The benefits:

  • Minimally invasive and gentle with only a small incision
  • No flap and no flap related complications
  • Visual recovery is fast
  • Reduced risk and incidence of dry eye
  • Supports a comfortable, painless and stress free patient experience
  • Odourless and noiseless
