What can you expect from a Relex Smile eye surgery?

Sharp eyesight within a few minutes. Does it sound impossible? At iClinic, we can restore your eyesight quickly, blade free and pain-free.

Complex eyesight examinations are crucial


We strive for our patients’ satisfaction with the level of care provided at our clinic. We want to be sure about your overall eyesight condition which is why we need to carry out complex eye examinations using several diagnostic machines. These examinations may take up to three hours; therefore we recommend our clients set aside plenty of time for their visit. To achieve the best result possible, you should refrain from wearing soft contact lenses for at least five days before your examination. RGP (or hard) contact lenses should be replaced by glasses at least three weeks before the examination. This is because contact lenses deform the surface of your eye and they can cause errors in the results before your planned laser eye surgery.

After your pre-surgery examinations, you will have a consultation with an eye doctor who will review your examination results and decide whether you are a suitable candidate for a laser eye surgery. If so, he or she will recommend the most suitable method for your and consequently will explain the procedure to you.

What can you expect during the procedure?


If an eye specialist recommends the Relex Smile laser eye surgery, which is suitable for patients with near-sightedness of up to -10 diopter value or with astigmatism of up to 5 cylinders, it will only take a short while for us to bring you a new view of the world thanks to sharp eyesight. This is the only method during which the stability of your cornea is not disrupted. The Relex Smile method is currently the finest surgical method with the most precise removal of diopters. You can go back to work or back to doing your favourite activities the very next day following the procedure.

This method does not use the excimer laser, only the newest femtosecond VISUMAX 500 laser which provides guaranteed quality, being manufactured by the German company Carl Zeiss.

The course of the procedure


You don’t have to worry about anything, the whole procedure is pain-free, and there will be no post-op pain.

1. First, we will numb your eyes by using anaesthetic drops.

2. In the course of a few seconds, a femtosecond laser sends millions of ultrashort pulses inside your cornea and creates a so-called lenticula. This means that the diopter refractive error is removed directly inside the cornea and the cornea itself remains intact.
