Access cutting-edge technology with SMILE® Laser eye surgery in Melbourne with our state-of-the-art facilities
Mornington Peninsula Eye Clinic, is offering SMILE® eye surgery to the Melbourne community through our associate clinic in Armadale, Eye Laser Specialists. Our team of experienced refractive surgeons are among the few ophthalmologists to offer SMILE® laser eye surgery in Melbourne. Short for small incision lenticule extraction, the SMILE® procedure combines the best aspects of two more traditional methods of laser vision correction, PRK and LASIK, to provide a high precision refractive surgical technique with an improved safety profile. SMILE® eye surgery is considered a minimally invasive procedure with a low rate of complication and a high rate of success.
At this time, SMILE® surgery is not yet suitable for long-sightedness (hyperopia) or the age-related deterioration of near vision (presbyopia). However, patients with high short- sightedness (myopia) and astigmatism, the uneven curvature of the cornea, are often suitable for SMILE® even after being deemed ineligible for other refractive techniques. Long-sighted and presbyopic patients may still access effective laser vision correction with other refractive methods such as LASIK or refractive lens exchange, which are also offered at our associate clinic, Eye Laser Specialists.
