Good news for all SMILE patients!
Are you going for a vision correction procedure (e.g. SMILE, CLEAR, SmartSight) to correct your short-sightedness and/ or astigmatism? Good news! You now have the opportunity to preserve your own corneal lenticules obtained from your vision correction procedure, as your own biological resource. These lenticules can potentially be used to treat eye-related conditions* in the future.
