Wavefront LASIK v SMILE
The SMILE laser procedure is new laser technique. It is said to produce similar results as LASIK, however as it was only FDA approved in September 2016, its long term effects are not yet fully known.
Our choice: Wavefront LASIK
The SMILE technique
|Long term effects||LASIK is well established for over 30 years, ongoing research available on safety and efficacy||SMILE is a relatively new technique (2011), long term effects unknown|
|Prescription range||LASIK is approved for high range of short-sightedness, long-sightedness, astigmatism and complex prescriptions for more than 15 years||SMILE only treats limited range of short-sight and astigmatism|
|Re-treatment||LASIK enhancements are done by lifting existing flap, quick and painless recovery||Unable to retreat with SMILE, patients require PRK which involves a slow and painful recovery|
|Technology||LASIK is widely available with customised wavefront technology to correct minute imperfections||SMILE does not incorporate wavefront technology|
|Pupil size||LASIK treats an extended pupil size range that delivers improved night vision||Cannot treat large pupils|
|Availability||Standardised and available on various laser platforms for many years||Only available on one laser platform|
