With FDA approval, 50 percent more people now qualify for the ReLEx SMILE procedure. This revolutionary advancement in vision correction cures incorrect curvatures in the cornea. Reshaping this part of the eye allows light to enter the eye at the correct angle clearing up blurriness and introducing more lines of sight. Manhattan LASIK Center is the only provider in the New York offering this advanced operation.

Astigmatism treatment by ReLEx SMILE
Now with FDA approval for Americans, the chance of qualifying for the newest innovation in laser vision correction drastically increase making it possible for thousands more people the chance of getting 20/20 vision.

Patients heal faster and often have much better vision in hours following the treatment. Patients with problems wearing contact lenses or blurry vision may be candidates for ReLEx SMILE.
