SMILE Eye Surgery in Queens, New York
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.
The Benefits of SMILE EYE SURGERY
Minimally Invasive Procedure
Compared to most procedures, ZEISS SMILE laser vision correction is gentle and comfortable. Your surgeon will only need to make a small, precise opening to correct your vision.
Rapid Visual Recovery
Vision recovers quickly after ZEISS SMILE. Most people return to their normal activities the next day.
Freedom from Lenses
ZEISS SMILE is designed to eliminate your need for glasses and contacts.
Quick & Simple
ZEISS SMILE takes only a few minutes start to finish. The part of the procedure that uses a laser to reshape your cornea lasts about 30 seconds!
With ZEISS SMILE, you may experience less dry eye and discomfort compared to contact lens and LASIK.
