This state-of-the-art, femtosecond laser technology is used to correct myopia and astigmatism.
The only one of its kind in Colombia
Relex Smile ReLEx SMILE is a new and minimally invasive technique for correcting myopia and astigmatism. It's an innovative method with great advantages over the traditional techniques that have been used for more than 20 years. What makes this technology so advantageous is the use of femtosecond laser technology to remove the intracorneal lenticule with high precision and minimal invasion. No cuts! Just a tiny incision of less than 4 mm.
Simple and Specific Treatment
The VisuMax femtosecond laser has been developed for the ReLEx SMILE procedure because it corrects myopia and astigmatism very accurately without altering the remaining corneal structure. Some of its main benefits include its superior accuracy in dissecting the intracorneal lenticule and the fact that it is a simple, effective, and comfortable treatment technique.

How Do I Know If ReLEx SMILE Is the Right Choice for Me?
Like any other visual correction method, patients must undergo a series of ophthalmologic examinations — PENTACAM, OPD, SCAN III, ORA — to evaluate refractive errors and verify that they fulfill the requirements to undergo this valuable procedure.
