Dr. Mi Jin Kim is an ophthalmologist specializing in smile eye surgery at BGN Eye Hospital in Busan, South Korea. Dr. Mi Jin Kim is also known as a smile eye surgeon or a refractive surgeon. Smile Eye Surgery is a type of refractive surgery that uses a minimally invasive laser-assisted procedure to correct vision problems such as nearsightedness, myopia, and astigmatism. Dr. Mi Jin Kim is a highly trained ophthalmologist and experienced in performing this procedure, which is typically done on an outpatient basis. Dr. Mi Jin Kim uses advanced diagnostic tools and techniques, including corneal topography, wavefront analysis, and ocular aberrometry, to carefully evaluate each patient's eyes and determine whether they are a good candidate for the procedure. Smile eye surgery is a newer type of refractive surgery that uses a laser to create a small, precise incision in the cornea. The surgeon then uses a specially designed instrument to remove a small amount of corneal tissue, reshaping the cornea and improving the way light enters the eye. Unlike other types of refractive surgery, such as LASIK or PRK, smile eye surgery does not require the creation of a flap in the cornea. Patients who undergo smile eye surgery may experience improved vision within a few days after the procedure, with most experiencing significant improvement within a few weeks. They may also be able to return to their normal activities, such as driving and reading, within a few days after the procedure. Dr. Mi Jin Kim also provides pre-operative and post-operative care for patients undergoing this procedure. Dr. Mi Jin Kim evaluates patients to determine their candidacy for the surgery, provides detailed information about the procedure and its risks and benefits, and monitors patients' progress after the surgery to ensure optimal outcomes. Dr. Mi Jin Kim collaborates with other healthcare professionals, such as optometrists or primary care physicians, to manage any underlying medical conditions that may be affecting the patient's vision. Dr. Mi Jin Kim also provides treatment for other eye conditions, such as cataracts, glaucoma, or macular degeneration.
