LASIK is the most commonly performed refractive surgery procedure. A wide range of myopia, Hyperobia, and astigmatism can be corrected by the LASIK procedure. It is a delicate surgical procedure that allows for a very predictable healing response. Why is it so popular? LASIK has advantages over other procedures, including a relative lack of pain afterward and the fact that good vision is usually achieved almost immediately, or at least by the very next day.
How it works
Step 1: An instrument called a Microkeratome is used in LASIK eye surgery to create a thin, circular flap in the cornea. The surgeon folds the flap back out of the way.
Step 2: some corneal tissue is then removed from underneath the corneal flap using an Excimer laser. The laser uses a cool ultraviolet light beam to precisely remove (“ablate”) very tiny bits of tissue from the cornea to reshape it. When the cornea is reshaped in the right way, it works better to focus light into the eye and onto the retina, providing clearer vision than before.
Step 3: The flap is then laid back in place, covering the area where the corneal tissue was removed. This corneal reshaping only takes few minutes and is almost painless.
Both nearsighted and farsighted people can benefit from the LASIK procedure. With nearsighted people, the goal is to flatten the too-steep cornea; with farsighted people, a steeper cornea is desired. Also, Excimer lasers can correct astigmatism, by smoothing an irregular cornea into a more normal shape.
Am I Suitable
Your eyes are even more individual than your fingerprints. So we can’t establish whether Lasik is right for you without a thorough eye assessment. But you can be eligible if you are:
– With nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism
– Over 19 years of age
– With stable vision in both eyes for at least one year prior to the procedure
– Free of eye diseases
– Free from corneal conditions such as Kertoconus
– With enough corneal thickness
– Not pregnant
