Tired of wearing eyeglasses or contact lenses, then LASIK surgery may be right for you. LASIK surgery has a good track record and most people are satisfied with the results.
What is Lasik?
LASIK (Laser Assisted In-Situ Keratomileusis) is a popular laser eye surgery. It is a type of refractive surgery used to correct vision in people who suffering from hypermetropia, myopia and astigmatism. Lasik Surgery eliminates dependence on spectacles and contact lenses by reshaping the cornea.
Benefits of LASIK Eye Surgery
- Around 96% of patients will have their desired correct vision after LASIK. An enhancement can further increase this number.
- Very little pain in Lasik Surgery.
- Vision is corrected nearly immediately or by the day after LASIK.
- No stitches or bandages are required after LASIK.
- After having LASIK, most patients have a dramatic reduction in eyeglass or contact lens dependence and many patients no longer need them at all.
How is LASIK Eye Surgery done?
During LASIK surgery, an instrument called a microkeratome or femtosecond laser is used to create a thin flap in the cornea. The cornea is then peeled off and the underlying corneal tissue is reshaped using excimer laser beam to correct the refractive error. After the cornea is reshaped so that it can properly focus light onto the retina, the cornea flap is gently repositioned to original position and the surgery is complete.
LASIK is performed while the patient is under local anesthesia in the form of eye drops and usually takes about 10 mins to complete the procedure. Patients may also request mild sedation.
Safety Side-effect & Risk of LASIK
Lasik is today’s most popular surgical procedure for vision correction caused by refractive error, because of its precision and fewer significant complications.
LASIK is the most desirable procedure by some doctors. Strict screening protocol significantly reduces chances of complications which if they occur are very minor and easily resolved. Theses may be temporary development of red spots, dry eyes, decreased contrast sensitivity & glare.
