Very. The entire idea which conceptualized SMILE is based on how to make laser prcedures that exist today, such as LASIK, even safer and more stable in the long term.
This technique is not only effective and predictable but also provides a safety and stability that is superior to traditional LASIK.
ReLEx SMILE is free from flap related complications possible with other forms of LASIK.
