SMILE® Laser eye Surgery

SMILE® (Small Incision Lenticule Extraction) is the latest technique in laser eye surgery. Known as ‘keyhole’ laser eye surgery, it is minimally invasive, gentle and pain free. The recovery time is also quicker and there is less chance of infection and dry-eye associated with other procedures. 

Our principal surgeon, Dr John Males has helped pioneer the SMILE® procedure in Australia. We look forward to assessing your suitability for SMILE®
