SMILE Eye Surgery in Queens, NY

Over 4 million eyes treated with SMILE®

You can now smile because SMILE (Small Incision Lenticule Extraction) laser vision correction is here and available for our patients at Metro Eye MD! Dr.Nicholas Nissirios is the first SMILE laser surgeon in Queens, NY and one of the few performing the procedure in New York State.

SMILE supports the latest developments in laser vision correction for myopia (nearsightedness) with or without astigmatism, providing excellent visual outcomes in a minimally invasive procedure.

In this procedure, the femtosecond laser is used to create a lenticule – a thin, contact lens-shaped layer just beneath the surface of the eye and then a small opening through which that layer is removed, correcting your vision.
