A broad portfolio to grow your business


Laser Vision Correction procedures


During PRK, the central epithelial layer of the eye is completely removed, making it possible for the ZEISS MEL® 90 excimer laser to ablate the cornea and correct the refractive error.


During LASIK, the ZEISS VisuMax® femtosecond laser or a microkeratome creates a flap that is folded back. After the ZEISS MEL® 90 excimer laser has done the corneal shaping, the flap is then repositioned on the eye.


During SMILE, the ZEISS VisuMax® femtosecond laser creates a lenticule inside the cornea and a small incision in one single step. The lenticule is then manually extracted through the access cut by the surgeon.

Business growth with ReLEx SMILE

Business growth opportunities with ReLEx SMILE

Extending your portfolio in refractive surgery also means extending possibilities for your business. Surgeons who already practice SMILE see the potential that SMILE offers for growing their Laser Vision Correction business. SMILE surgery allows them to increase their revenue due to a higher patient volume.

SMILE: Minimally invasive with maximum impact

As a minimally invasive procedure, SMILE has a high satisfaction rate with patients due to its safety and convenient treatment. The all-in-one procedure avoids the creation of a flap. SMILE offers the potential for more biomechanical stability of the cornea and no flap-related complications.

Excimer laser from ZEISS

Refractive surgery excellence

For decades, the excimer laser has been a proven technology for safe, efficient and effective Laser Vision Correction. It can be used as a solution for a wide range of refractive errors and has defined corneal refractive surgery like no other technology. A best practice example is the ZEISS MEL® 90.

Femtosecond laser from ZEISS

Minimally invasive surgery

This technology made way for additional treatment opportunities – like small incision lenticule extraction, better known as SMILE, making it possible for surgeons to treat refractive errors with a minimally invasive solution. With VisuMax® and ReLEx® SMILE®, ZEISS offers the first commercially available solution for performing SMILE.
