There’s a good chance you’ve already heard of LASIK, but have you heard of SMILE? SMILE is a laser vision correction procedure that produces results that are on par with the results of LASIK and other refractive laser procedures.

Another advantage of SMILE is that it’s less invasive than LASIK and PRK. Because of this, SMILE boasts a faster recovery period, meaning you can get back to the things you love even quicker.

If you’re tired of wearing glasses and contact lenses, SMILE can give you the visual freedom of your dreams. At LaserVue Eye Center, we offer SMILE with the ZEISS VisuMax laser system, some of the latest and greatest technology for vision correction.

If you have SMILE now before the summer is over, you can get the most out of the rest of the season right here in San Francisco while enjoying your best vision! Keep reading to learn how to squeeze the most out of summer in San Francisco when you have SMILE!

Play Tourist for a Day with a GoCar Tour of the City

Ever wanted to drive a go-kart? With the GoCar Tour, you can take out an adorable go-kart with a built-in GPS. These GoCars can take you on a sightseeing tour of San Francisco!

See all the sights and check out some landmarks that maybe you haven’t seen before. After you have SMILE, you’ll be able to see everything and have fun on your little drive.

SMILE is a laser vision correction procedure that changes how light refracts through your eye. By changing how light refracts, it corrects common refractive errors like nearsightedness.

SMILE can correct both nearsightedness and astigmatism. Because it’s an outpatient procedure, you’ll get to go home the same day when it’s over.

The recovery time is minimal, and most patients end up with 20/20 vision or better. If you’re looking to eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses, SMILE is the way to go!

If you have the vision correction procedure now, it will leave you with plenty of time to soak up the last days of summer. The best part? You’ll be able to play tourist for a day while enjoying your incredible new vision!
