Why does not every laser eye clinic offer the Relex SMILE method?
The VisuMax laser, the only laser with which the ReLEx® SMILE treatment can be performed, requires an investment of more than 1 million euros. Not all clinics can afford to purchase the VisuMax. In addition, the manufacturer of the VisuMax (Zeiss) only certifies the best surgeons to perform ReLEx® SMILE treatments.
Some clinics state on their website that they do not offer this treatment because it would not be a safe method. Unfortunately, this causes unrest among patients. Very unjustly, because the method has been proven safe and effective and has been used since 2006. If it were not a safe method, Visus Oogkliniek would not offer the treatment.
