About SILK Procedure - A Johnson & Johnson Innovation

Welcome to the future of vision correction - the SILK procedure, a groundbreaking development by Johnson & Johnson. As pioneers in healthcare and ophthalmology, we at Johnson & Johnson are proud to introduce the SILK procedure, an advanced step in FLAP-LESS Laser Vision Correction technology. Our commitment to enhancing eye care with innovative solutions has led to the development of the ELITA machine, specifically designed to perform the SILK procedure with unmatched precision and safety.

The Genesis of SILK

SILK, or Smooth Incision Lenticule Keratomileusis, represents a paradigm shift in refractive surgery, conceptualized and developed by our experts at Johnson & Johnson Vision. We recognized the need for a more advanced, patient-friendly approach to vision correction, leading to the creation of a procedure that is minimally invasive, highly effective, and offers rapid recovery.

How It Works

At the core of the SILK procedure is the ELITA machine, a culmination of advanced laser technology and medical engineering. This state-of-the-art machine employs a highly precise Femto-laser to create a thin, lens-shaped piece of tissue (biconvex lenticule) within the cornea. This lenticule is then gently removed through a tiny incision, reshaping the cornea and correcting refractive errors like myopia (up to -8.00 diopters) and astigmatism (up to -3.00 diopters).

Our Commitment to Excellence

At Johnson & Johnson, we are dedicated to upholding the highest standards of medical care and patient safety. Our team of experts continuously works on refining the SILK procedure, ensuring that it remains at the forefront of ophthalmic technology. We believe in not just treating vision problems but enhancing the overall quality of life for our patients.

Join Us on a Journey to Better Vision

The SILK procedure by Johnson & Johnson is more than just a medical treatment; it's a pathway to clearer vision and a better life. We invite you to experience the future of eye care, where innovation, safety, and patient satisfaction converge to create the ultimate vision correction experience.


At Johnson & Johnson, we are proud to be the architects of the SILK procedure, a testament to our unwavering commitment to advancing eye care. We are excited to offer a solution that promises not just improved vision, but a new perspective on life. Join us in embracing this revolutionary step in vision correction.
