Wavefront-Guided LASIK (WG-LASIK) is widely regarded to be the gold standard for laser vision correction but in recent years, SMILE, or Small Incision Lenticule Extraction, has been developed by a single company as an alternative to LASIK, and they have advertised aggressively claiming it to be a better way of correcting vision. The technique may be new, but we have a strong conviction that “new” may not always be better, and that any new technique needs to be examined with scientific rigour.
Wearing contact lenses? If you wear contact lenses, please leave them out and wear glasses for two full days prior to the day of your assessment
You may think that LASIK or Vision Correction is expensive, and while it isn’t cheap, you might be surprised to learn how much money you save when compared to a lifetime of buying glasses or contacts. LASIK will prove a superior investment over the course of 20 years, and you will enjoy the added benefit of not requiring to wear glasses or put in contacts every day.
Here are ten reasons our surgeons at Re:Vision see WG-LASIK as a superior procedure to SMILE:
We encourage second opinions. There is no better way of getting a good feeling for your surgeon and the professionalism of their unit than having a personalised assessment.

"Dear Dr Trevor Gray and Team, I had my cataract operation three weeks ago. The best decision I have ever made in my life! I regret I have not done this a long time ago. I was very nervous and on edge about the upcomimg operation on both of my eyes, to be performed on the same day. But your very kind and friendly approach dispelled any apprehension about the required procedure. I can't thank you enough for your excellent professional care before, during and after the cataract operation on both of my eyes. Your team made me feel very relaxed and comfortable. The operation was painless and pretty straightforward. And the end result is miraculous. I had this amazing vision on the day after my operation. The world around me has become brighter and clearer. I couldn't believe it! I had the perfect vision! I could drive my car straight away. No glasses! No contact lenses! When I look back: I have been wearing glasses all my life and my vision was gradaully deteriorating every year. And now for the first time in my life I have 20-20 vision, which I never thought possible. To anyone who is thinking of having this operation done, I strongly recommend Dr Trevor Gray and his team. You will receive the best possible care and attention. I am extremely greatful to this amazing team! Many Blessings to you!"
