SMILE is the latest procedure and involves the use of only one laser
(Femtosecond) as compared to femto-LASIK. A small portion of your cornea is
raised as a flap in femto-LASIK where as this is not a requirement in SMILE
reducing issues relating to creation of flap. More importantly, have you
had initial eye scans done to see feasibility for either procedures?? the
current requirements for both SMILE and femto-LASIK in terms of the cornea
topography are almost the same.

Yes dear SMILE is available in Pakistan. Both Femto-LASIK and SMILE are equally effective. Both have its own Pros and Cons. Decision is upto you after gaining complete knowledge of both procedures.
