What Is Specs Removal?

The procedure of specs removal involves a surgery that helps you get rid of your contact lenses for eyeglasses. The treatment also consists of the correction of other visual problems like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. There are multiple technologies available in medical science like LASIK, SMILE, ICL, and Contoura. Out of the above four technologies, LASIK is the most popular form of treatment used by people.

What Is The Procedure Of Specs Removal?


SMILE is a commonly used therapy that is frequently known as flapless LASIK. It acquires only one laser known as femtosecond laser for the treatment. The femtosecond laser is used to cut out of part of tissue called lenticule. Later, it is dragged out by a small opening to correct the vision in the patient.


This surgery is 25 years old and is commonly used for specs removal. In this surgery, a laser is used to improve the cornea’s curvature to focus the light on the retina. It can be performed in two steps:

  • A Femto-second Laser is used to produce a flap. 
  • Excimer Laser is applied to change the curvature of the cornea to produce vision correction. 

Bladeless LASIK is also very commonly known as iLASIK, Femto LASIK, All-Laser LASIK, etc. Today, more advanced techniques such as smile, Contoura, and ICL have taken the place of LASIK.

Contoura Vision

It is a computer-guided topographic mapping procedure that helps locate the microscopic contours of the cornea. The process is almost twice as expensive as LASIK. It is responsible for treating the irregularities in the cornea’s curvature and emphasizing the visual axis of the eye. If we compare the surgery method to laser procedures,

RLE Surgery

RLE stands for Refractive Lens Exchange. The procedure involves the substitution of an artificial lens for the natural lens of the eye. It is recommended to the patients who are not fit for any kind of laser or lens implant treatment. A patient can take the form and quality of the lens and the system can be created with a mono-focal, multifocal, or toric lens.

Refractive lens exchange, also named lens replacement surgery or clear lens removal. RLE your eye’s clear natural lens with an artificial IOL to improve and correct your refractive error. Also, obtain more explicit focus and decrease your need for reading glasses. RLE serves the same procedure as cataract surgery for lens replacement.

Criteria For LASIK, Contoura Vision, Or ICL

Specs Number

If you are Myopic, SMILE is a more suitable choice over LASIK or Contoura Vision. SMILE is a 3rd formation laser-based system and a true bladeless-flapless-painless surgery.

  1. For the number between +4 D to -8 D- Contoura Vision is the most suitable option.
  2. For the number between -8 D to -18 D – ICL is a suggestible option.


  • SMILE: SMILE is a flapless, bladeless, and dressings-free surgery. The healing takes a few days, about 7 – 10 days. The dry eye aftereffects of the surgery are less with a SMILE.
  • ICL / Implants: ICL is the most advanced vision correction procedure adopted worldwide. The aspherical lens is fixed and placed over the natural lens of the eye surgically for vision correction errors asking for remarkable results.
  • Contoura vision: An improvement in spectacle removal surgery also recognized by Contoura Lasik: The high level of accuracy with the surgery is majorly due to the topographical mapping of the eye. Contoura works on the visual axis rather than the pupillary axis. This treatment on the visual axis brings intensified visual clarity.
  • Femto LASIK (Blade free): Most high-level Lasik surgery in today’s day and age. A high level of protection and efficiency is guaranteed with Femto LASIK.

As a mainstream treatment for weak eyesight, LASIK is a reliable procedure with very rare difficulties. Laser Specs removal surgeries completed by us have served people to leave their spectacles forever.
