Small incision lenticule
extraction (SMILE) is a promising new flapless keratomileusis technique to correct myopia, and early results are encouraging.
Sigma-Aldrich is excited to offer the global scientific community access to the LENTICULE
disc portfolio," said Trevor Jones, Vice President for the Sigma-Aldrich Analytical Business.
The technique, called SMILE (SMall Incision Lenticule
Extraction), offers patients a less invasive and quicker alternative to LASIK, and with a reduced risk of dry eye issues after the surgery.
is made of chemically altered collagen, a naturally occurring protein.
ReLEx smile is laser vision correction by small incision lenticule
extraction and was developed by Carl Zeiss Meditec for refractive surgery.
Extraction (ReLEx) Small Incision Lenticule
Extraction (SMILE) is the only minimally invasive, flapless procedure in laser vision correction.
Carl Zeiss Meditec has developed the new ReLEx smile technique for refractive surgery, which combines femtosecond laser technology and precise lenticule
extraction for minimally invasive laser vision correction for the first time - all in a single system: the VisuMax Femtosecond Laser from Carl Zeiss Meditec.
