Hi, it\u2019s Dr. Russell from VSON. When I tell people I\u2019m a LASIK surgeon, some ask me: \u201cWhat\u2019s innovative about Brisbane\u2019s first SmartSight laser vision correction procedure?\u201d. Firstly, let me explain what SmartSight is. SmartSight is a form of lenticule extraction. Lenticule extraction is regarded as the most cutting-edge laser eye surgery for the correction of short-sightedness, with or without astigmatism. So, how does SmartSight work? With SmartSight, a laser places a series of pulses within the cornea, forming bubbles less than 1\/1000th the width of a human hair. These bubbles outline the tissue that needs removing and creates a tiny connecting tunnel through which we can extract it. Removing this tissue alters the shape of the cornea, correcting short-sightedness and astigmatism at the same time. What are the Benefits of SmartSight? Unlike other laser eye surgeries, with SmartSight we don\u2019t create a corneal flap. This means the procedure is less invasive, so the eye is more comfortable and can heal quicker. Is SmartSight more innovative than LASIK & TransPRK? No, not necessarily. All three procedures achieve the same results. However, your cornea will be stronger with SmartSight as we don\u2019t need to create a flap or remove any layers of your cornea, as is the case with LASIK and TransPRK. There will likely be a place for LASIK and TransPRK for some time in the future because not everyone is suitable for SmartSight yet.
