    Dr. Dong Min Shin is an ophthalmologist with medical expertise in smile eye surgery and is currently working at BGN Eye Hospital in Busan. "Smile eyes surgery" is a term used to describe a surgical procedure that involves reshaping the cornea of the eye to correct refractive errors such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. This procedure is also known as SMILE (Small Incision Lenticule Extraction). Dr. Dong Min Shin undergoes additional training beyond the general ophthalmology residency. This may include 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. During the Smile Eye Surgery, a femtosecond laser is used to create a small incision in the cornea and remove a small piece of tissue to reshape the cornea and correct the refractive error. Unlike other refractive surgeries like LASIK, SMILE does not require the creation of a corneal flap, which can result in faster healing times and reduced risks of complications. After the procedure, Dr. Dong Min Shin will provide post-operative care and follow-up to ensure that the patient's vision is improving as expected. Dr. Dong Min Shin will prescribe medications or provide specific instructions for post-operative care to help the patient achieve the best possible outcomes. SMILE eye surgery is typically performed on an outpatient basis and takes about 15–30 minutes to complete. Most patients experience little to no pain during the procedure and are able to return to their normal activities within a few days. Dr. Dong Min Shin is skilled in using advanced technologies and equipment to perform the surgery with precision and accuracy. Dr. Dong Min Shin will provide patients with safe and effective care for correcting their refractive errors.
