When it comes to advanced laser vision correction technology, surgeons around the world turn to ZEISS. In fact, our comprehensive LVC portfolio is trusted by more than 2,000 surgeons in more than 80 countries. Relying on leading applications such as Lenticule Extraction with SMILE® from ZEISS and ZEISS PRESBYOND® for age-related LASIK, surgeons can achieve excellent visual outcomes for eligible patients. But this trust goes even further: experts and surgeons choose laser vision correction from ZEISS to correct their own eyes and the vision of their loved ones.
Hear directly from refractive experts about why they have placed their trust in ZEISS SMILE and ZEISS PRESBYOND for themselves and family members.
Around the world, individuals seek laser vision correction for numerous reasons. For the daughter of Dr. Yi Ling, physical appearance and spectacle independence played key roles in turning to laser surgery.
My daughter doesn’t want to wear spectacles due to beauty. More than 1.2 million SMILE eyes have been done in China. It’s proved to be safe, less invasive [with] fast recovery. That’s why I chose to do SMILE surgery for my daughter.1
With ZEISS SMILE, only a small incision of 2 mm is sufficient, meaning that the majority of the upper corneal layers remains untouched. What's more, the patient can usually return to their normal daily activities the next day – a big selling point for younger patients with active lifestyles.

It’s like a whole new life.2
As a Product Manager for Refractive Lasers at Carl Zeiss Meditec since 2011, Burkhard Wagner knows the market inside and out. After years of wearing contact lenses and glasses, he experienced damage to his cornea. With utmost trust in the technology he helped create, Burkhard confidently chose laser vision correction surgery with Lenticule Extraction with SMILE from ZEISS.
For years my eyes were framed by a pair of thick, heavy glasses. My prescription was -8.25 diopters for my left eye, and -6.5 for my right. At a certain point, I was fed up – I had had enough of limited vision, fogged-up glasses and frames that repeatedly slid down my nose.3
Going into surgery, Burkhard knew what to expect at every step of the well-established procedure, including its minimally invasive nature and fast healing times.
The next day [after surgery] I could feel that my eyes had already recovered – my vision was sharp. After a post-op examination, I headed home – drove home, actually – without glasses or contact lenses for the very first time in my life.3
As an international expert in refractive surgery, Dr. Robert Morris has performed more than 7,500 laser procedures. After becoming contact lens intolerant, he turned to ZEISS.

I was a longstanding myope and was thinking about refractive surgery to deal with my presbyopia and contact lens intolerance, and underwent very successful laser eye surgery with PRESBYOND…4
After undergoing PRESBYOND Laser Blended Vision with the MEL® 90 excimer laser from ZEISS, Dr. Morris began experiencing the best binocular distance vision of his life, while no longer relying on glasses. His own successful experience with ZEISS PRESBYOND inspired him to integrate the application into his well-established ophthalmic practice.
