So what is the future of refractive surgery? “The future is continuing to refine the refractive outcome with even safer and less invasive procedures. I am very excited that within the next year, we will begin to fully utilize the femtosecond laser’s potential, going beyond the creation of better flaps to conducting the entire laser procedure within the cornea without a flap. ReLEx® Smile is turning the world of refractive surgery upside down. Instead of vaporizing corneal tissue to correct the underlying nearsightedness and astigmatism, ReLEx® Smile removes a small piece of corneal tissue called a lenticule through a small keyhole incision (about 2.5 to 4mm only). The upper corneal layers remain practically unaffected. This is important as the upper corneal layers mainly contribute to the biomechanical stability of the cornea. The minimally invasive incision also suggests fewer transected nerves in the cornea surface and significantly reduces severity of dry-eye syndrome. This may sound like science fiction, but it is a reality and I am honored that Zeiss has chosen to partner with Lasik ProVision in Niagara Falls to bring this technology to North America.
