SMILE stands for Small Incision Lenticule Extraction. It is a form of laser vision correction which is minimally invasive and does not require the creation of a corneal flap. With SMILE surgery, a laser is used to shape a thin piece of corneal tissue (lenticule) within the layers of the cornea. This lenticule is then removed via a small incision.
