Enhancement after SMILENovember 01 2018
All laser vision correction procedures have a low percentage of patients who need a little more laser after their first procedure to tweak their vision. At LVSA we have had an enhancement rate after SMILE of less than 3%. We have been enhancing SMILE using “Thin flap Lasik” for some time now. It is pleasing to see a lead article from a major London clinic in a major journal supporting our practice of “Thin flap Lasik” as the best way to enhance any small residual prescription error after SMILE. Their enhancement rate is 4.4% so it is good to know the LVSA enhancement rate compares well with leading centres internationally.
