Eye surgeons make use of the laws of physics in eye laser surgery to correct the refractive power of the eye in such a way that light reaches the retina in proper focus without visual aids. Up until now LASIK was the most common procedure.
Now there is a non-invasive, soft, gentle surface laser treatment for eyes. In SmartSurfACE the laser correction is made without contact, and without blade, flap, incision or suction of the eye.

Am I a potential candidate for eye laser surgery?
The shape of your cornea and the type and extent of vision correction you need determine whether eye laser surgery is a viable option for you. Myopia treatment, hyperopia treatment and astigmatism treatment can all be performed with SmartSurfACE.
What is SmartSurfACE?
SmartSurfACE is a new method from SCHWIND eye-tech-solutions for laser vision correction. It’s touch-free, involves no cut, and is non-invasive.
How long does a SmartSurfACE treatment take?
The treatment is quick and easy to perform, and requires only local anesthetic eye drops. Laser treatment itself takes less than a minute per eye. The entire treatment for both eyes takes 10 minutes or less.
What is the healing process like?
Since SmartSurfACE is a surface treatment, healing takes minimally longer than with intrastromal laser treatments. SmartSurfACE treatment itself is painless, and during the approximately four-day healing process individually adjusted medication maintains comfort.
Are there risks involved?
SmartSurfACE is an operation, but thanks to proven AMARIS laser technology and this innovative surface treatment, the risks are minimal.
Why should I choose SmartSurfACE treatment?
A major advantage of SmartSurfACE is that it is completely touch-free. This laser vision correction is non-invasive, safe, gentle and stressless. It’s an easy way to enter the world of better vision.
What patients say about Schwind SmartSurfACE?
Huge improvement in quality of life
For reasons of safety, SmartSurfACE was the only option, since the treatment doesn’t require a flap. The procedure was over before I knew it, and there was no pain. I felt the laser beam only as a light breath of wind on the eye. My new vision is a huge improvement in quality of life. My eyes are no longer dry and tired in the evenings. And I no longer have to plan what activities I’ll take contacts, care products or glasses to, whether for work, family time or sport.
My chosen method
I’m an optician, and so in my search for the best type of eye surgery I read through the Internet and asked colleagues for advice. I confess that I was nervous despite all the advice and information, but all my fears were groundless. The procedure took just a few minutes, and the result was amazing after just a few days. SmartSurfACE is my chosen method. It doesn’t need a cornea flap, so it’s extra safe.
I was impressed by the clinical outcomes
I had my nearsightedness corrected with SmartSurfACE. While researching types of eye surgery I was particularly impressed by the clinical results, and my doctor’s advice clinched it. The procedure wasn’t painful at all, although I was pretty nervous. It was over in what seemed like just a few minutes. I really benefit from it in sports. Basketball is my favorite sport and I can enjoy it now without annoying corrective lenses.
