Currently, more than 1,300 ZEISS VisuMax femtosecond lasers have been installed and more than 4 million ReLEx SMILE laser vision correction procedures have been performed worldwide.

ReLEx SMILE is a femtosecond laser vision correction technology owned by Carl Zeiss Meditec company. It was developed in 2007 by a team of eye practitioners led by Walter Sekundo and Marcus Blum. SMILE surgery is performed with ZEISS VisuMax femtosecond laser and allows correction of myopia and astigmatism in a fast manner, with no pain and minimal surgical intervention.

By now it has been proved to be fully safe and effective. In the last two years, the number of SMILE surgeries has doubled: from 2 to 4 million. Russia ranks third overall (after China and South Korea) in the number of surgeries.
