Detailed information about SMILE vision correction and ICL (Implantable Collamer Lens) related information will be provided by an ophthalmologist/optometrist during the seminar. You will have the opportunity to consult and ask questions regarding vision correction.

  1. Can zero-degree myopia be restored after laser vision correction?
    Many patients mistakenly believe that achieving zero-degree myopia is guaranteed after vision correction and that it will provide better vision than wearing glasses or contact lenses. This is an incorrect notion.
    Success criteria for vision correction include:
    Achieving the target refractive error within a range of +/− 0.75 diopters is considered successful. Visual acuity below +/− 0.75 diopters is considered normal vision.
    According to literature statistics, the success rate of achieving a refractive error within +/− 1.00 diopters three months after vision correction is close to 100%;
    Approximately 97% of cases are successful in achieving a refractive error within +/− 0.50 diopters.
    If the refractive error exceeds +/− 1.00 diopters after vision correction, enhancement treatment can be considered.(Enhancement)
  2. What are the risks of laser vision correction?
    • Undercorrection/overcorrection
    • Decreased night vision
    • Seeing halos or glare
    • Dry eyes
    All of the mentioned conditions can generally be improved through treatment and typically do not have long-term effects. However, vision correction cannot alter complications caused by myopia, such as retinal detachment, glaucoma, and macular hemorrhage.
  3. How long does it take to resume normal activities after vision correction?
    The recovery time for laser vision correction is typically less than 24 hours, and there are no restrictions on activities such as work, going out, or reading the day after the procedure. The only limitation is to avoid excessive vigorous exercise and rubbing the eyes within one week after laser vision correction. The healthcare professionals at Clear Smile Vision Center will provide appropriate advice based on your occupation or lifestyle.
  4. How long does it take to resume normal activities after undergoing presbyopia correction?
    In the initial period after presbyopia correction, patients may need some time for their eyes to adapt and focus when reading or driving in low-light environments. However, most individuals no longer require reading glasses in their daily lives or for reading purposes. Additionally, after one month post-surgery, normal physical activities can be resumed, including swimming and playing sports without any issues.
  5. Am I a suitable candidate for laser vision correction?
    Laser vision correction is suitable for many individuals. With advancements in laser vision correction technology, it can address a wide range of vision problems, including high myopia, astigmatism, and presbyopia. However, determining whether you are a suitable candidate for laser vision correction requires a thorough examination by a specialized doctor. Clear Smile Vision Center welcomes you to attend our vision correction seminar, where specialized doctors will provide explanations and conduct preliminary assessments.
  6. Does undergoing laser vision correction lead to early onset of presbyopia?
    In theory, everyone will experience presbyopia at some point in their lives, and undergoing laser vision correction does not affect the timing of its onset. However, some individuals who have undergone laser vision correction may experience presbyopia later than usual and may require reading glasses at a later stage.
