LASIK Laser Eye Treatment
LASIK Laser eye surgery is a popular type of operation that restores eyesight. If
people who are sick of their glasses and contact lenses seek out LASIK surgery, then
that means they are seeking an alternative to it.
A person who has refractive error has a deformity in their eye. The irregular cornea
shape means that light refracts improperly, making it difficult for the retina to collect
the light. As a result, blurry vision occurs. In LASIK eye surgery, the cornea is
reshaped to allow for proper refraction of light.
Standard LASIK surgery is a process that uses advance procedure to reshape the
cornea to correct the eye’s refractive defect. Diagnostic tests tell how much
reshaping is needed before the procedure.
Anaesthetic eye-drops are administered prior to treatment to ensure that the
treatment is pain-free. A flap is prepared as part of the LASIK operation while the
anaesthetic is having its effect. The objective is to direct the laser beam so that it
perfectly matches the shape of the cornea, just as it does for eyes with perfect
vision. Fine cuts are made to the middle layer of the cornea to effect the change in
focal point. This results in better eyesight, which means a better quality of life.
Custom LASIK combines modern technology with wavefront- guided to measure the
unique optical properties of one's eyes to guide laser correction during the LASIK
surgery. The technology is intended to minimize high-order optical aberrations in
one's eyes and improve post surgery visual quality. In combination with any kind of
laser vision correction, custom therapy can be done.
In this advanced treatment the wavefront analyzer employed with customized LASIK
provides the physician entirely new levels of understanding and accuracy. This
treatment has a considerable effect on visual quality and eliminates the glare and
halos problem throughout the night. Pre-operative testing is essential for
topography, Aberrometry and Pachymetry.
