Laser Vision Correction

Laser vision correction is a surgical procedure used to improve vision and reduce dependency on glasses or contact lenses. It involves using a laser to reshape the cornea, which is the clear, front surface of the eye. By altering the curvature of the cornea, the laser can correct refractive errors such as nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism.

ABOUT

Laser Vision Correction

Description

Laser vision correction procedures, including LASIK , PRK , SMILE, offer transformative options for those seeking freedom from glasses or contact lenses. Our refractive surgeons employ excimer lasers with wavefront-guided and topography-guided techniques for precise corneal reshaping.

Significance

1. Laser vision correction provides rapid visual recovery and reduced dependence on corrective lenses.
2. Customized ablation profiles optimize visual outcomes and minimize aberrations.
3. Patient satisfaction and improved quality of life post-procedure.

Highlights

1. Our surgeons are experts in treating myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism using advanced laser platforms.
2. We provide personalized pre-operative evaluations for candidacy and post-operative follow-up care.

Unique Hospital Features

Femtosecond Laser Integration:
Incorporating femtosecond lasers for precise flap creation in LASIK, SMILE procedures.
Comprehensive Pre- and Post-operative Care:
Offering thorough assessments and follow-up care to ensure the best possible outcomes.

Detailed Explanation

What is laser vision correction and how does it work?

Laser vision correction is a surgical procedure that uses a laser to reshape the cornea, allowing for improved vision without the need for glasses or contact lenses. It corrects refractive errors like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.

Am I a suitable candidate for laser vision correction?

Candidates for laser vision correction typically have stable prescriptions, good overall eye health, and realistic expectations. A comprehensive evaluation by an ophthalmologist is necessary to determine eligibility.

What are the different types of laser vision correction procedures available?

Common procedures include LASIK (Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis), PRK (Photorefractive Keratectomy), and SMILE. Each procedure has its own advantages and considerations.

What is the recovery process after laser vision correction, and when can I expect to see improvement in my vision?

Recovery times vary, but most patients experience improved vision within a day or two after surgery. Full recovery may take several weeks, during which you may use prescribed eye drops and follow post-operative care instructions.

How does LASIK work, and what can I expect during the procedure?

LASIK involves creating a protective flap on the cornea, followed by using a laser to reshape the underlying tissue. The procedure is quick and relatively painless. Most patients experience improved vision almost immediately.

What are the potential risks and complications associated with laser vision correction?

While laser vision correction is considered safe, potential risks include dry eyes, glare, halos, and changes in vision. Serious complications are rare and can be discussed during the consultation.

Will I still need glasses or contact lenses after laser vision correction?

While laser vision correction can significantly reduce dependence on glasses or contacts, some patients may still need them for specific activities or if they have residual refractive error.

Is laser vision correction a permanent solution for vision correction?

Laser vision correction provides long-lasting results, but it does not stop the natural aging process of the eye. Some patients may experience changes in vision over time and may require additional procedures or adjustments.
