Laser eye treatment


I recieved laser eye treatment in early 2009 in order to correct my vison permanently. I was sick to death of wearing glasses and contact lenses everyday in order to be able to see without blurring. So for my christmas present that year I decided to undertake laser eye treatment. Indeed laser eye treatment is extremely benificial. After you have completed the treatment you should be able to permanently stop having to wear your glasses or contacts. If you are an active person or somebody concerned with body image and appearance, this should strongly appeal to you. Glasses can prove to be an obstacle in many activities, and the daily care of contact lenses can be tiresome. After laser eye treatment, you will be able to focus on other things beside your vision. The procedure itself is very quick and painless, and over 90% of patients report that they no longer require glasses or contacts after the treatment.





As stated, laser eye treatment is a quick and painless procedure. You should not let the thought of a laser entering your eye put you off. The treatment itself is less than 1 hour long and is pain free. The improvement of your vision is surely worth the effort of this short procedure. Certainly the ability to create near perfect or even perfect eyesight is an exciting new possibility from laser eye treatment. You can definatly increase your quality of life by undertaking the laser eye treatment

Laser eye treament is a safe option



In choosing which laser eye treatment to do there are a number of factors to consider in order to choose correctly. Firstly you must decide which laser eye treatment to have and secondly you must choose the right eye treatement centre.




Laser eye treatment is generally associated with corrective vison procedures in order to correct farsightedness (hyperopia), nearsightedness (myopia), and the need for reading glasses (presbyopia). The treatment is also used to treat astigamtism, detached retinas and diabetic retinopathy. There are three main laser eye treatment procedures to consider when making your descision. The current laser eye treatments generally available are LASIK, LASEK and PRK

I heard there's two main types of laser eye surgery - LASIK and PRK. I think LASIK is where they cut a flap on your cornea and then perform the laser treatment under that, then close the flap up again. Apparently it takes longer to heal the PRK but results are better.
