It all begins in the year 2000 when Dr. Wiltfang establishes a center for eye laser surgery at Munich Airport. Two years later, his friend from university days Dr. Martin Bechmann, does the same in the city of Trier.
After the first years of successful surgery they want to join forces under a common roof cooperation in one single location – so in 2004 the start to think about a suitable naming. One of their patients catches the idea: "Think about what your surgery means to your patients: You give them back joy in life!" This statement was the gateway to the choice of the name and the ne w logo of the eye laser center. “Smile Eyes:)”
Since its early days, Smile eyes stands for eye laser surgery on the highest medical level, committed to innovation and research and always engaged to provide the optimum treatment.
At national and international conventions for refractive lens surgery they meet like-minded people who are committed in the same way to high quality medicine. Thus the highly experienced ophthalmologists join forces: the hour of birth of the Smile Eyes Group! Since then Smile Eyes has been expanding and today consists of 13 eye centers with a total of more than 80 eye experts in Germany and Austria.
