Refractive services

Refractive services refer to a range of medical treatments and procedures designed to correct refractive errors in the eye. Refractive errors are common vision problems that occur when the shape of the eye or the curvature of the cornea prevents light from focusing properly on the retina, leading to blurred vision.

Description

Refractive services refer to a range of medical treatments and procedures designed to correct refractive errors in the eye. Refractive errors are common vision problems that occur when the shape of the eye or the curvature of the cornea prevents light from focusing properly on the retina, leading to blurred vision.

Significance

1. Individualized treatment plans target specific refractive errors, providing optimal visual acuity.
2. Minimized dependence on corrective lenses enhances quality of life and overall visual comfort.
3. Long-term solutions for refractive challenges.

Highlights

1. Expertise in managing complex refractive cases, including high myopia and hyperopia.
2. Integration of cutting-edge technologies for precise diagnostic assessments.
3. Collaboration with optometrists for co-management of refractive patients.

Unique Hospital Features

Expertise in High Refractive Error Management:
Specialized care for cases of high myopia and hyperopia, ensuring optimal visual outcomes.

Detailed Explanation

What is a refractive error and how does it affect vision?

A refractive error occurs when the shape of the eye prevents light from focusing directly on the retina, causing blurry vision. It can be corrected with glasses, contact lenses, or refractive surgery.

Is refractive surgery a permanent solution for vision correction?

Refractive surgery can provide 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.

What are the different types of refractive surgeries available?

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

What is the recovery process after refractive surgery, 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 reshapes the cornea using a laser to correct refractive errors. During the procedure, a protective flap is created on the cornea, and the laser is used to reshape the underlying tissue. It is a quick outpatient procedure.

What are the potential risks and complications associated with refractive surgery?

While refractive surgery 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 refractive surgery?

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

Am I a suitable candidate for refractive surgery?

A thorough evaluation by an ophthalmologist is necessary to determine if you are a good candidate. Factors such as corneal thickness, prescription stability, and overall eye health will be assessed.
