What is Lasik?

LASIK is the world’s most widely performed procedure to offer spectacle-independent vision. This vision correction surgery is in keeping pace with our increasingly faster lifestyle. However, only a combination of years of experience and cutting edge technological precision can ensure the safety of our valuable eye.

Are you a Candidate for LASIK?

  • You should be at least 18 years old, since the refraction of people younger than 18 usually continues to change
  • You should not be pregnant or nursing as these conditions might change the measured refraction of the eye
  • Your eyes must be healthy and your glass prescription stable. If you are myopic, you should postpone LASIK until your refraction has stabilized as myopia may continue to increase in some patients until their mid to late 20s
  • You should be in good general health

How Does LASIK Work?

LASIK uses a laser to change the shape of the cornea. In the myopic eye the image does not reach the back part of the eye (the retina) as the cornea and lens are too curved and focus the image to a point in front of the retina, the image is seen as a blur.

LASIK involves slightly flattening the cornea which is the curved rounded front surface of the eye; the image is then clearly focused on the retina.

In the hyperopic eye the cornea and lens are too flat and focus the image to a point behind the retina; the image is then seen as a blur. The muscles controlling the lens can overcome some degree of hyperopia but weaken with age. This is why many hyperopic cases begin to require distance and near glasses after the age of 30.

After laser correction with LASIK the cornea is slightly more curved; the image is then clearly focused on the retina. The result is that the hyperopic patient can see clearly for distance after laser treatment.

In astigmatism, the eye is oval like a football, and not spherical. The image is formed at two different points inside the eye. This means that images of different orientations are focused at different parts of the eye and that the image on the retina is blurred.

In the treatment of astigmatism, irregularities in the shape of the cornea are smoothened to even out the focusing power.

benefits

Benefits of LASIK

From improved self-confidence to a whole range of new activities, Laser Eye Surgery has a long list of benefits.

  • Immediate Results

    One of the truly remarkable benefits of LASIK eye surgery is that most LASIK patients experience dramatically improved vision within mere moments of the procedure. It is very common for patients to demonstrate near-perfect vision during their follow-up examinations the very day after LASIK surgery, and to immediately discontinue the use of glasses or contact lenses.

  • Freedom from Corrective Eyewear

    After successfully undergoing LASIK eye surgery, one of the benefits patients are most excited about is freedom from corrective eyeglasses and contact lenses. In the vast majority of cases, patients enjoy visual acuity that is better than what they formerly experienced with the use of corrective lenses, and are no longer dependent on glasses and contacts. For many LASIK patients, gone are the days of worrying over broken glasses or lost contacts, packing cumbersome cleaning and storing solutions, or paying for costly replacements each time refractive needs change.

  • New Activities

    Patients who have undergone successful LASIK eye surgery find that travel becomes much more enjoyable and convenient because they no longer have to worry about packing a back-up pair of glasses or all the accessories necessary for contact wearers. Furthermore, such activities as swimming, cycling, skydiving, and even walking in the rain or spending a day at the beach become more pleasurable without the worries and hassles associated with corrective eyewear.

  • More self-confidence

    Perhaps the most life changing of the many LASIK benefits is the heightened self-confidence many patients attain. After LASIK surgery, patients no longer feel as though their faces are hidden by glasses. From the convenience of not having to worry about glasses or contact lenses, to increased self-confidence and a wider range of possible activities, patients who undergo LASIK eye surgery often feel like a whole new world has been opened to them.
