The ultimate laser technique ReLEx SMILE represents the least invasive treatment ever, using full potential of Carl Zeiss Visumax equipment.By using the high-precision Femtosecond laser, your Rutnin-Gimbel ophthalmologist operates a single laser to simultaneously create an inner lenticuleandeading to a new shape of the cornea. Due to its minimally invasive nature, the discomfort that might be experienced during and after operation is relatively negligible.
A refractive lenticule and small incision are created inside the intact cornea in one single step
The lenticule is removed through the incision with only minimal disruption to the corneal biomechanics.
Removing the lenticule changes the shape of the cornea, thereby achieving the desired refractive correction..
Rutnin-Gimbel ophthalmologists strictly apply Rutnin’s ethics in eye surgery and make sure first that any patient meets following general conditions, whatever the treatment could be:

Rutnin-Gimbel ophthalmologist will determine during the thorough pre-operative examination if the eye conditions enable and require a ReLEx SMILE treatment
