Gulfcoast Eye Care has performed thousands of life-changing LASIK procedures and now we’re excited to announce a new LASIK alternative that puts clear vision with reach of even more patients! SMILE® is the latest evolution in minimally invasive vision correction surgery and we’re the Tampa area’s only eye surgeon performing this new and advanced procedure!

What Is SMILE?

During SMILE (Small Incision Lenticule Extraction), your surgeon will use the most advanced technology on the market — the Zeiss VisuMax femtosecond laser — to create a tiny incision in the cornea. A disc of tissue is removed to precisely reshape the eye, and you’ll be well on your way to better vision!

Why choose SMILE?

Minimally Invasive

SMILE is quick, easy, and the recovery is faster than any other laser vision correction procedure on the market.

Lower Dry Eye Risk

SMILE is known for causing fewer post-surgical dry eye symptoms than other procedures.

Safe & Effective
