Miaoli was tired of wearing glasses. Her family lives in China and they told her she had to get the SMILE procedure done. Her brother had SMILE in China and told her it was even better than LASIK. So after much research, she found Chu Vision Institute! Dr. Chu is the only surgeon in the Twin Cities who can perform SMILE. Now she is seeing 20/20 without any complications!
