There are a number of potential causes of blurry vision after SMILE, or indeed after any other eye surgery including LASIK, PRK, cataract surgery and so on. Factors that need to be considered include the characteristics of the blurring, such as whether it fluctuates or is ...

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. For the damage to occur, the pressure must be too high for a substantial period of time. The SMILE o...

Filamentary keratitis refers to a condition where strands of mucus stick to the surface of the cornea. This causes eye irritation and a foreign body sensation, especially when blinking. Any of a number of conditions which affect the surface of the eye can cause this to happen. Such conditions incl...

We usually measure vision by getting a person to read down a letter chart from top to bottom with decreasing sizes. Each line of letters is denoted by a number. 20/20 means one could see clearly at 20 feet what should normally be seen at that distance. It is a term used to indica...

Yes - as part of your comprehensive evaluation prior to Smile / Lasik, your attending Ophthalmic surgeon will examine the posterior segment of the eye to ensure that there is no contraindications to performing your refractive surgery. Floaters are very common in patients with myo...

Absolutely. This used to be most common previously due to a condition called posterior capsular opacity. This is a condition where even the tiniest residual lens epithelial cells left remaining in the lens capsular bag would migrate before the acrylic intraocular lens, and c...

Any laser refractive surgery, whether LASIK, PRK, or SMILE changes the corneal shape. Sometimes more, and sometimes less, depending on the amount of spectacle power that is to be corrected. There are a number of different types of contact lenses, but basically, you can differenti...
22 May 2019
Elevated intraocular pressures maybe an artefact of the testing method (air-puff versus contact methods including the Goldmann applanation tonometer, or digital tonometer). It is important to ascertain whether your eye pressures are truly high on applanation, as non-contact air-p...
22 May 2019
Hi there! The exact reason why myopia causes glaucoma is not known. One possible hypothesis is that when you have very high myopia, your eyeball becomes stretched and the tissue supporting the nerve in the eye is weaker so you are at more risk of nerve damage from high pressures ...
13 Jan 2019
Hi, in general, the answer is no. The concern is that patients with Sjogren syndrome have very dry eyes, and LASIK (or any other laser refractive surgery including epiLASIK/PRK/TransepiLASIK/TransPRK/SMILE etc) will make the dryness worse. It's worth remembering that dry eyes ...
