Can ReLEx Smile cause glaucoma?

Hi Aspan, in itself, it is almost impossible for ReLEx SMILE to cause glaucoma.
Glaucoma means optic nerve damage, associated with an eye pressure that is too high to be tolerated by that particular nerve.

What are the long term effects of threadlifts over a 10 year period, and will skin elasticity and collagen be affected?

Dear Ms Cny,
