Dr. Bo Young Cheon is one of the skilled ophthalmologists who have successfully performed over 400,000 vision correction surgeries so far. Dr. Bo Young Cheon provides the best possible services to his patients that meet international standards. Dr. Bo Young Cheon underwent additional training beyond her general ophthalmology residency. This includes attending specialized training courses, observing and assisting with surgeries performed by experienced surgeons, and performing supervised surgeries themselves until they have gained the necessary skills and expertise. Dr. Bo Young Cheon is an expert on smile eye surgery, which is an acronym for Small Incision Lenticule Extraction and is the latest advance in laser eye surgery performed by using the VisuMax femtosecond laser. It is a minimally invasive procedure used for the treatment of myopia and myopic astigmatism. The procedure was pioneered by Carl Zeiss Meditec. SMILE eye surgery has a lot of benefits, including:  It is as safe as LASIK. It has a quick visual recovery. It reduces the chances for dry eyes to occur. It requires a small incision and does not require a flap. The BGN Eye Clinic Gangnam Kyobo Tower uses Smile LASIK, which is the most advanced procedure in modern laser surgery. The first minimally invasive vision correction procedure offers high levels of safety and comfort to patients. The desired vision is achieved by creating a lenticule inside the cornea, which is later removed through a small (1.52 mm) incision. The cutting-edge technology used for performing SMILE surgery is provided by the lead manufacturer, Zeiss. The laser is characterized by supreme precision and speed. Dr. Bo Young Cheon will use a femtosecond laser to create a small incision in the cornea and remove a small piece of tissue to reshape the cornea and correct the refractive error. Dr. Bo Young Cheon will use advanced technologies and equipment to ensure that the procedure is performed with precision and accuracy. After the procedure, Dr. Bo Young Cheon will provide post-operative care and follow-up to ensure that the patient's vision is improving as expected. Dr. Bo Young Cheon can also prescribe medications or provide specific instructions for post-operative care to help the patient achieve the best possible outcomes.
