Laser Vision Correction

By Edited Nov 13, 2013 0 0

Do you want to wake up each morning without having to reach blindly by your bedside table to look for your glasses? Or how good would it sound to be able to save yourself from hassle of wearing and cleaning contact lenses daily? Aren't these some of the things that you would want to do everyday? With the birth of the laser vision correction technology, these dreams can finally become a reality. Activities like skiing, golfing, knitting and others will finally be within your grasp without trying to reach for your eyeglasses or suffering from the discomfort of your contact lenses. Though this treatment is not fit for all eye problems, it is still highly recommended by experts because it caters to common eye troubles like astigmatic conditions, farsightedness and nearsightedness. One particular type of this treatment is the LASIK procedure which is probably considered as the best of all the techniques that have been developed to finally rid the use of eyeglasses and contact lenses for both men and women.

LASIK laser vision correction is one of the variations developed from the PRK or photo refractive keratectomy which has some disadvantages like the abrasion of the cornea. In the LASIK treatment, a new device called the keratome is used to raise a thin hinged flap from the surface of the cornea. This treatment is painless and is considered better than the PRK procedure because it raises the surface tissue found inside the eye thus removing abrasion possibilities. After the raising of this sheath, a laser beam having a diameter of 6 millimeters is passed on the surface of the cornea and is focused into the papillary portion. This whole procedure will only take at least a minute for average patients to be completed.

The advantage of this laser vision correction is that it stops the abrasion of the sensitive corneal sheath, gives the patients a faster recovery, presents just a few after-effects, quick stabilization of the vision, and the lessening of the use of medications. There are a few recommendations, however, of who can be the possible candidates for this treatment. Some of the basic parameters include age (an individual should be at least 20 years old) and a stable prescription with contact lenses or eyeglasses from an ophthalmologist or optometrist. You also can't get correction done if you have some pathological diseases on your eye surface or past retinal detachments.
