The cornea is too curved or the eye is too elongated. Light entering the myopic eye is focused in front of the retina, resulting in blurry distance vision.
The ReLEx SMILE laser technique with the Zeiss VisuMax laser and the LASIK laser technique with the Zeiss excimer laser correct this refractive error by removing tissue from the center of the cornea thus flattening the cornea. This change in shape changes the focal point of light towards the back for correct focusing on the retina, and thus clear vision.
A word from our patients
A successful operation!
My eye operation was a success thanks to the new RELEX SMILE procedure. My eyes stung a bit for 4 hours after the operation and that’s all! It’s so wonderful to get up in the morning and not to have to put on my glasses! I see the world differently through new eyes! Thanks to the team at the Espace Nouvelle Vision Center!
I’m so happy!
It’s been 2 months since I had eye surgery at the Espace Nouvelle Vision Center (to treat myopia with LASIK). I’m very happy, I can see perfectly, with no need for glasses or contacts! It’s changed the way I live, I don’t have to deal with taking care of contacts, and it’s so great to get up in the morning and be able to see! I highly recommend this operation for anyone that is eligible. The surgeon and the team at the Espace Nouvelle Vision Center were fantastic!
I have perfect vision again!
With a friendly and professional team, and an operation that was not as impressive as I thought it would be, I now have perfect vision again!
No more tired eyes after a long day with contacts, or blindly searching for my glasses…I am totally satisfied with the operation and would like to thank my surgeon and his team!
