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 SMILE® from ZEISS to your LVC portfolio not only extends your range of applications 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 provides your eligible patients with high comfort thanks to being minimally invasive with maximum impact. With 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.

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 SMILE customers rated their clinical satisfaction with it as satisfying or even very satisfying. Which is supported by a study from Fernand de Wilde, which states that 78%* of patients would recommend to their family and friends. And 82%* of patients would even choose it again.
