About

As one of the most skilled ophthalmologists in the country, Dr. Hyun Cheol Cheon is trained to provide comprehensive eye care, which includes prescribing glasses or contact lenses, performing eye surgery, and managing medical conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration. Dr. Hyun Cheol Cheon undergoes extensive training that includes four years of medical school, followed by a one-year internship and a three-year residency in ophthalmology. Dr. Hyun Cheol Cheon is an expert on smile eye surgery and is considered a smile surgeon or smile specialist who completed additional training and certification in the procedure after completing their residency in ophthalmology. Dr. Hyun Cheol Cheon attended specialized courses and workshops on SMILE surgery, gaining experience in performing the procedure under the supervision of experienced SMILE surgeons. SMILE (Small Incision Lenticule Extraction) is a type of laser vision correction surgery that is used to correct nearsightedness and astigmatism. It is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a femtosecond laser to create a small incision in the cornea and remove a small piece of tissue known as a lenticule. This reshapes the cornea and corrects the refractive error that causes nearsightedness or astigmatism. The procedure takes about 10–15 minutes per eye and is typically performed on an outpatient basis. Patients are given numbing eye drops to minimize discomfort during the procedure. After the procedure, patients may experience some mild discomfort or blurry vision, but this typically resolves within a few days. Most patients are able to return to their normal activities within a week or two, and the full benefits of the procedure are usually apparent within a few weeks to a few months. Dr. Hyun Cheol Cheon also has ICL/Artiflec lens implantation surgery on his list of expertise. Dr. Hyun Cheol Cheon undergoes specialized training and certification in these procedures, which involve attending specialized courses and workshops, gaining experience in performing the procedures under the supervision of experienced surgeons, and demonstrating proficiency in the techniques involved. ICL surgery involves the insertion of a thin, flexible lens between the iris and the natural lens of the eye, while artiflex lens implantation surgery involves the placement of a phakic intraocular lens (IOL) over the natural lens of the eye. Both procedures are typically performed under local anesthesia on an outpatient basis.
