Dr. Hamilton Gives a Talk on SMILE to Optometrists at the LA County Optometric Society

Yesterday, Dr. Hamilton gave a lecture on the ins and outs of SMILE Eye Surgery to a large group of optometrists based in Los Angeles county. A relatively new procedure, SMILE (or Small Incision Lenticule Extraction) offers all of the vision correction benefits of LASIK for patients suffering from myopia and astigmatism but with a lower risk of dry eye disease and a faster recovery time.

During the talk, Dr. Hamilton discussed the benefits of using a lower amount of laser energy when creating the lenticule, the piece of tissue that is removed from the cornea during the procedure. As the lenticule is removed, the shape of the cornea changes, correcting the prescription of the patient. Using a lower amount of energy to form the lenticule creates less disruption in the eye, allowing the patient’s vision to recover more quickly.

If you’d like to learn more about the procedure, check out some of the testimonials and videos about it! If you’d like to learn more about Dr. Hamilton and career in refractive surgery, refer to his biography page.

IMPORTANT COVID-19 UPDATE

Given the recommendations from the American Academy of Ophthalmology regarding the ability to conserve personal protective equipment by delaying elective surgery and support the incredible healthcare workers caring for COVID-19 patients, Dr. Hamilton is temporarily suspending elective eye surgery including cataract and refractive (e.g. LASIK/SMILE) surgeries.
