SMILE Clear Lasik: Cost, Benefits, and Risks at The Eye Foundation

Responsive image

CLEAR Lasik is a minimally invasive laser eye surgery procedure that corrects vision by reshaping the cornea, the clear front part of the eye. It is a flapless procedure, which means that no flap is created in the cornea. This can make it a good option for patients with thin corneas or other conditions that make traditional LASik surgery less safe.


The cost of CLEAR Lasik varies depending on a number of factors, including the location of the surgery, the surgeon's experience, and the patient's individual needs. However, it is generally more expensive than traditional LASik surgery.


CLEAR Lasik offers a number of benefits over traditional LASik surgery, including:

  • Faster recovery time: CLEAR Lasik is a quicker procedure than traditional LASIK, and most patients recover their vision within a few days.
  • Less discomfort: CLEAR Lasik is generally less painful than traditional LASik, and patients may experience less dryness and irritation after surgery.
  • Fewer risks: CLEAR Lasik is a very safe procedure, but there are always some risks associated with any surgery. However, the risks of CLEAR Lasik are generally lower than those of traditional LASik.


All laser eye surgery procedures carry some risks, including:

  • Dry eyes: This is the most common side effect of laser eye surgery, and it can usually be managed with eye drops.
  • Glare and halos: Some patients may experience glare and halos around lights after surgery. These symptoms usually improve over time.
  • Undercorrection or overcorrection: In rare cases, the laser may not correct the vision perfectly, and the patient may need additional surgery.

Is CLEAR Lasik right for me?

CLEAR Lasik may be a good option for patients who:

  • Are at least 18 years old.
  • Have been in good overall health for at least six months.
  • Have had a stable prescription for at least one year.
  • Do not have any eye conditions that would make laser eye surgery unsafe, such as glaucoma, cataracts, or severe dry eye.

How to prepare for CLEAR Lasik

There are a few things you can do to prepare for CLEAR Lasik surgery:

  • Stop wearing contact lenses: Contact lenses can change the shape of your cornea, so it is important to stop wearing them for at least two weeks before surgery.
  • Avoid eye makeup: Eye makeup can irritate your eyes after surgery, so it is best to avoid it for at least a week before and after surgery.
  • Arrange for transportation: You will not be able to drive yourself home after surgery, so it is important to arrange for transportation.

What to expect after CLEAR Lasik

After CLEAR Lasik surgery, you will need to rest your eyes and avoid strenuous activity for a few days. You will also need to use eye drops to keep your eyes moist and prevent infection.

Most patients experience a significant improvement in their vision within a few days of surgery. However, it may take up to a few weeks for your vision to fully stabilize.

CLEAR Lasik is a safe and effective laser eye surgery procedure that can correct vision and eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses. If you are considering CLEAR Lasik, be sure to talk to your eye doctor to see if it is right for you.
