Hi, it\u2019s Dr. Russell from VSON. When I tell people I\u2019m a laser eye surgeon, some ask me: \u201cWhich laser eye surgery technique is the most gentle?\u201d. Well, let\u2019s begin with a little background on laser eye surgeries\u2026 Over the years, laser eye surgeries have been performed with a success rate of 99%, with such procedures having helped many ill-sighted patients to see clearly again. With the advancement of laser eye surgery, new procedures are becoming more popular. One such procedure is SmartSight, which is a trade name for Small Incision Lenticule Extraction. The other, which you may be familiar with, is LASIK. The difference between the procedures is that surgeons create a flap with LASIK and only create a small keyhole incision with SmartSight. Both procedures are gentle on the eye and normally require only several minutes of operative time per eye. You won\u2019t feel any pain during the procedure but may feel a small amount of discomfort when the laser is applied. At VSON, we offer a wide range of eye services that will help you achieve your desired visual outcome. As an expert in laser eye surgery, I can recommend which procedure would be best for someone like yourself.
