SmartSurfACE is a "no-touch" technology, i.e. it works without touching the eye, without cutting or creating a vacuum.
It is the newest and most effective variety of the Trans-PRK method. The procedure allows removal of the epithelium and vision correction to be carried out simultaneously and entirely by the laser in a single step, without contact of the eye to any surgical instrument. The innovative method SmartSurfACE combines Trans-PRK with the revolutionary SmartPulse, to achieve an impressively smooth surface of the cornea and speed up the recovery process, so immediately after the procedure patients can see noticeably better than with conventional surface methods.
vision is corrected accurately without touching;
... through the outer layers of the cornea.
