The SMILE treatment at Magruder Laser Vision is a one-step, one-laser procedure. We use a short-pulsed laser to create a micro-precision hole or bubbles within the cornea sublayer. These bubbles form planes, which creates a lenticule (a disc-shaped piece of tissue). Our exceptional surgical team will gently remove the lenticule, and restore your vision. The entire procedure is odorless, noiseless, and takes less than 60-minutes to complete. The steps needed to create the lenticule take 23-seconds on average.
