Falls Church, Virginia -
Falls Church, VA based Brusco Vision is sharing more information on SMILE eye surgery. SMILE, or Small Incision Lenticule Extraction, is a minimally invasive procedure designed to correct myopia (nearsightedness) and astigmatism. Notably, patients who have previously been told by eye doctors that they are not good candidates for other advanced laser procedures may find that SMILE is right for their needs. All are welcome to contact the clinic to learn more or schedule a consultation.
Brusco Vision, in Washington DC and the DMV area recently published an article about SMILE eye surgery. The article states that SMILE is one of the most gentle vision correction procedures ever developed, and patients consistently describe the process as painless and comfortable, both during and after the procedure. SMILE is a better fit for certain eye types and may provide more flexibility for active lifestyles. SMILE is a 100% femtosecond laser-based procedure that corrects vision by removing a small amount of corneal tissue (whereas in SBK LASIK the correction is made by reshaping the cornea with the excimer laser). Removing the lenticule changes the shape of the cornea, thereby achieving the desired vision correction.
The vision center offers a variety of vision correction procedures, including SBK LASIK, and SMILE is simply the latest treatment to join their repertoire. SMILE received FDA-approval in 2016, and more than 5 million patients have since undergone this procedure to have their eyesight corrected. The technology’s precise nature allows it to offer both immensely satisfying results as well as quick recovery, and Brusco Vision says these benefits have contributed to it becoming the fastest growing laser vision correction procedure being performed in current times.
One of the main reasons the vision clinic offers so many options is the fact that no single one can be considered a universally effective treatment. Patients arrive at the clinic from all kinds of backgrounds and with all kinds of pre-existing conditions, so each has to be carefully assessed to determine which procedure is right for their needs and goals. While some may be told they are unsuitable for LASIK, this means, they still have hope in the other procedures, and SMILE is a significantly useful option in such cases. Notably, the clinic says it is also effective in correcting residual myopia and myopic astigmatism after cataract surgery, leading to clearer vision and significant visual acuity gain.
Brusco Vision clarifies that SMILE is not intended to offer better outcomes than LASIK. Each has their own merits, but they are simply intended to deliver a similar result for patients with varying needs. Certain eye types will be better suited for SMILE, for instance, and patients with exceptionally active lifestyles may find its short recovery period lends itself better to their preferences. Whichever treatment they undergo, however, both are proven to be safe and effective.
The article adds, “Based on your specific vision needs and the results of the tests you’ll undergo at your Brusco Vision consultation (ANOVA), we will determine if SMILE will help you achieve the results you desire and give you freedom from corrective lenses. At Brusco Vision’s laser center in the Washington DC area, our goal is to use every available technology to help our patients achieve their best possible vision. SMILE is another excellent method we have to set you on the journey toward visual freedom! ”
Brusco Vision seeks to make visual freedom more accessible to everyone in their community, so the clinic has implemented several measures to support this goal. In addition to being guaranteed a comfortable experience every time they visit the clinic, patients may choose from a range of flexible payment options. The clinic also eschews all hidden fees and ‘surprise’ charges, so patients can expect the initial price they receive to be exactly what they eventually have to pay. This all-inclusive pricing also extends to enhancements, post-op medications and so on.
Those interested in the SMILE procedure (or any other treatment available at Brusco Vision) are welcome to get in touch and schedule a consultation with Dr. Michael Brusco. Anyone can call the Brusco Vision office or use the clinic’s website to schedule a comprehensive SMILE examination and learn more about the procedure.
