Patient comfort is key to your success.

Extending your LVC portfolio with SMILE

An opportunity to increase your patients’ comfort

Knowing what is best for your patients is at the heart of your business. Your current LVC portfolio comprises LASIK and PRK – procedures that have been successfully applied for many years. You have carefully chosen these procedures according to their advantages and your patients’ needs.

Adding ReLEx® SMILE® from ZEISS to your LVC portfolio not only extends your range of procedures to select from, but also offers the opportunity to improve your clinical outcome, as many studies already show. Because offering a more comfortable and stress-free patient experience will result in high patient satisfaction.

SMILE: See the benefits for you and your patients

SMILE provides your eligible patients with high comfort thanks to being minimally invasive with maximum impact. With ReLEx SMILE, a lenticule and a small incision of 2-4 mm is created inside the cornea. The preservation of the upper corneal layers and the possibility for fewer transected nerves may preserve biomechanical stability and may reduce the incidence of transient dry eye syndrome.

Patient comfort to drive your business

A broader LVC portfolio will not only increase your patients’ comfort but will also create business opportunities. Because you can address new target groups and build on a satisfying clinical outcome. Most importantly, 96%* of already existing ReLEx SMILE customers rated their clinical satisfaction with SMILE as satisfying or even very satisfying. Which is supported by a study from Fernand de Wilde, which states that 78%* of patients would recommend SMILE to their family and friends. And 82%* of patients would even choose SMILE again.
