LASIK Eye Surgery is the most popular type of
laser eye surgery
The LASIK surgery is a type of refractive eye surgery and can reshape the eye’s cornea to treat all these types of refractive errors.
Wavefront LASIK eye surgery is a type of refractive surgery used for the treatment of astigmatism. If you are considering LASIK eye surgery, rest assured the procedure has few side effects or complications.
LASIK eye surgery can help if you are short-sighted (myopic), your cornea is either too steeply curved or your eye is longer than usual. This makes it hard for light rays to reach the back of your eye, to the vital retina, where images are interpreted, resulting in blurred vision.
The eye laser treatment can also help if you are long-sighted (hyperopic), your cornea is either too flat, or your eye is shorter than average. This means light rays reach too far beyond the retina, resulting in clearer distant vision, but more difficulty in focusing on closer objects.
If you suffer from Astigmatism your cornea might be oval-shaped rather spherical. Astigmatism creates two different focal points, which can cause sufferers to experience blurred vision at any distance. LASIK surgery can help, find out the costs by clicking here.
What does the procedure involve?
LASIK is a type of eye surgery, but is not to be confused as a term for all laser eye treatments. It is an abbreviated term for ‘Laser Assisted In-Situ Keratomileusis’.
the treatment is a type of refractive eye surgery that is used to correct myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism. This is done by removing the eye’s corneal tissue, in order to reshape the cornea and improve vision. During the surgery, a hinged flap is cut in the cornea so it can be lifted and the tissue underneath reshaped by the laser. This LASIK eye surgery procedure will either flatten or curve the cornea, depending on which correction is needed.
Wavefront guided LASIK surgery is an advanced type of treatment, which provides a more tailored treatment using a LASIK wavefront sensor. Wavefront guided LASIK surgery, with its 3-dimensional measuring technology, can deliver very precise corrections that might not always be possible with conventional LASIK eye surgery.
