LASIK and smile are different technologies for achieving similar outcomes.. smile is newer technology offering same outcomes as LASIK and thereby expensive.. technically only difference between LASIK and smile is that there is no flap in smile surgery.. outcomes of both remain the same .. surface procedure is used only if ur corneal thickness doesn't allow us for LASIK or smile.. visit LASIK surgeon for indetail understanding

Surface ablation and Lasik and smile have different indications . You should get your eye examined to decide what would suit your eyes better.
