Lasercare Eye Center has announced that they have added a ZEISS VisuMax® laser machine to their office and have begun offering ReLex SMILE minimally-invasive laser vision correction to their expansive list of services. This laser in combination with the ReLex SMILE procedure will help patients that suffer with Myopia, and is the first to utilize this technology in the Dallas Metroplex.

The ReLEx SMILE procedure was developed by ZEISS and utilizes the femtosecond laser they have also designed known as the VisuMax. The ZEISS VisuMax laser and ReLEx SMILE procedure are on the cutting edge of laser eye correction. It is a proven treatment procedure for nearsightedness, that has been recently FDA approved. Lasercare Eye Center is proud to be able to offer the most advanced technology available to correct Myopia with a minimally invasive procedure.

Myopia, or nearsightedness affects an estimated 33% of the population, and is a refractive error that will make objects far away appear blurry. It is currently unknown why myopia occurs, but it is caused by the eyeball elongating. The ReLEx SMILE procedure uses the laser to create a contact shaped layer just under the surface of eye. Then a small layer will be removed by the eye surgeon, thus correcting the Myopia.
