(18 May 2023, Hong Kong) SMILE Laser Eye Surgery has become increasingly popular in Hong Kong. In 2021, HKSH introduced ‘SMILE Pro’, the most advanced technology in vision correction, making it the first ophthalmology centre in Asia to adopt this cutting-edge technology. To date, HKSH has treated more than 500 patients (over 1,000 eyes in total) with this technology for vision correction. The Department of Ophthalmology today released the clinical results of a project that aimed to evaluate the clinical efficacy of SMILE Pro on 159 individuals (303 eyes in total) with myopia and astigmatism who underwent the SMILE Pro procedure between September 2021 and February 2023. The patients were between 18 and 38 years old, with preoperative myopia ranging from 1.00 to 10.25 dioptres, and a maximum preoperative astigmatism of 4.50 dioptres.
