What is visual acuity recovery like after ReLEx® SMILE®?Eye & LASIK
My friend told me that 1 week after undergoing ReLEx® SMILE® his visual acuity is still poor as he can't make out road signs more than 20m away.
Under normal circumstances, visual recovery for ReLEx® SMILE® is usually quite quick in the initial period. Patients usually can recover about 75% of their vision the very next day. The remaining 25%, which includes other aspects (such as contrast and haloes), will gradually recover in the following days and weeks.
We usually advise patients to be diligent with the prescribed eyedrops as they also help with the recovery and stabilisation of vision after the surgery.
It would be worthwhile to check in with your friend in a few weeks. It is likely his vision would have been much improved by then.
