Texas Eye & Laser Center was interviewed about a new FDA approved vision correction procedure by Fort Worth Magazine.
According to a recent study of 328 people who underwent the SMILE procedure, all but one patient walked away with 20/40 vision or better after the surgery — and 88% had 20/20 or better.
“Our patients continually tell us they couldn’t believe how easy and quick the procedure was,” Dr. Ranelle and Dr. Hu said via email. “The laser portion of SMILE takes only 24 seconds. Typically, patients feel no pain or discomfort during the procedure or recovery, and their vision is often 20/20 by the next day.”
