To SMILE or Not to SMILE

by Andrew Morgenstern, OD, Walt Whitley, OD

Andy Morgenstern, OD, and Walt Whitley, OD, MBA, have a point-counterpoint discussion on the benefits of small-incision lenticule extraction (SMILE). Andy describes why he believes SMILE offers more advantages than LASIK for many patients. Walt says that, while SMILE is an exciting approach, some doctors may be hesitant to perform the relatively new refractive procedure until they know long-term safety data.
