  • How long does the laser eye treatment take?

    The laser treatment takes only a few minutes per eye depending on the procedure.

    For example, the actual laser procedure typically takes less than half a minute per eye for SMILE. Depending on the method chosen, it may take a little longer. Assume that eye laser treatment takes about 5-10 minutes per eye. Your stay at the AOZ Heidelberg takes about one to one and a half hours.

  • Do I experience discomfort during the treatment?

    The Femto-LASIK- and the SMILE treatment are absolutely painless.

    You will hardly feel anything during the actual procedure. This is because analgesic drops (called anesthetics) prevent the eye from feeling anything during surgery. Some patients experience mild irritation after laser treatment or are sensitive to light, especially during the first few hours. You will receive special sunglasses from us. Overall, especially SMILE is a small, so-called minimally invasive procedure, from which you recover very quickly.

  • Do I need glasses or contact lenses after the treatment?

    Usually you need after an eye laser treatment like SMILE neither glasses nor contact lenses.

    The goal of the procedure is to achieve the best possible visual acuity without glasses or contact lenses. However, due to individual conditions and depending on the course of rehabilitation. Most of them can be “remedied” by a so-called enhancement process, but we can not guarantee freedom from glasses.
