London Vision Clinic | ReLEx SMILE | Live laser eye surgery | Professor Dan Reinstein

In this video, Professor Dan Reinstein performs a ReLEx SMILE (small incision lenticule extraction) – a keyhole type of LASIK procedure – filmed in real-time to demonstrate the full 3 and-a-half minute procedure from multiple angles. The superior design and optical precision of the Carl Zeiss Meditec Visumax femtosecond makes it the only femtosecond laser that is accurate enough to perform laser eye surgery through a keyhole incision in the cornea without the need for creating a flap and disruption of the corneal nerves and tearfilm that results from flap creation in the standard LASIK technique. The patient is only in contact with the device is less than 40 seconds with extremely low contract force such that the patient feels effectively nothing, there are no red splodges (subconjunctival haemorages) left behind. From the surgeons’ standpoint the laser procedure is one step: contact with the patient cornea and lenticule creation. The accuracy of ReLEx SMILE has been shown to be higher than that of LASIK in that it is far more accurate for higher prescriptions, and ReLEx smile can perform treatment for myopia / short-sightedness from -1.00 to -10 and in some instances up to -14 D.

    If anyone is considering getting laser eye surgery, please, please think very carefully. The fact is laser eye surgery is extremely dangerous. I've had it done myself and it has ruined my life. Years on, my vision is the worst it has ever been and I am still in pain. In fact, most people who have told me they have had it done, have also had some kinds of problems, many of them serious and life-changing. Research seems to bear this out, suggesting that the majority of patients have some kind of problems.

    Please take anything you are told by the companies with a pinch of salt. If you are still tempted, make sure you seek advice from an independent optometrist or ophthalmologist who has nothing to gain by you having surgery.
