What Is LASIK Eye Surgery?
LASIK, or Laser-Assisted Situ Keratomileusis, is a safe surgery for vision correction or eyeglasses removal. It is a corrective eye surgery done to treat abnormal conditions of the eye like Myopia, Hyperopia, and Astigmatism. In this laser eye surgery, a layer of the cornea called the stroma is reshaped so that the light focuses more accurately on the retina. This eye surgery uses cool ultraviolet rays with highly functional lasers and sophisticated tools to fix up the front portion of the eye. The laser treatment for eyes is generally a painless procedure and barely takes around 20 minutes for both eyes.
What Conditions Can Be Treated By LASIK?
Lasik surgery is effective in treating many superior refractive errors which have been explained in detail:
Myopia [Near Sightedness]
It is a condition of the eyes in which it focuses on nearby objects perfectly but fails to focus the far away objects. This can even lead to bigger problems like headaches and eye strain. Once you get the LASIK treatment done at Eye Mantra, you can feel the change as we aim to flatten the cornea so that it can help you focus the light properly on the retina.
Hyperopia [Far Sightedness]
It is the reverse condition of myopia. A person with hyperopia can easily focus on the images kept far away from them, but fail to focus on the images kept nearby. If he does not take the suitable treatment, the complications can be as severe as headaches and Blurred vision.
When you get laser eye surgery for hyperopia, the doctor elongates the eye to make the cornea steeper in order to increase the focusing power of the eye.
Astigmatism sounds like a very serious disease but it means when the eye is not in round shape. The curvature of the eye is not appropriately symmetrical when a person suffers from astigmatism. The sole reason for these distortions in vision is the irregularities in the cornea. When a person undergoes LASIK treatment, the curvature of the eye is made symmetrical and appropriate for clear vision.
What Is The Procedure Of LASIK Eye Surgery?
The procedure of LASIK eye surgery takes 20 minutes to complete for both eyes. But, the patient should not dry back home on his own because the doctor recommends that the eyes should not be under any pressure for some time.
Following are the functions of a trained surgeon during a LASIK eye surgery
- Formation of a thin hinged corneal flap with the help of a microkeratome.
- Pulling back of the flap to examine the underlying corneal tissue
- Usage of the excimer laser for the reshaping of cornea in the pre-specified default pattern.
- Putting back the flap on the cornea without using the method of stitches.
What Are The Benefits Of LASIK Eye Surgery?
When thousands of people suffer from a vision problem, LASIK treatment provides a safe, secure, and painless procedure to treat all the problems. It accompanies more benefits which have been accommodated in the given points:
- The treatment is long-lasting and it has been proven effective in improving the eyesight of people.
- It is also proven to recover in the least time without eyeglasses.
- The treatment can also help you to get rid of spectacles and contact lenses.
- The treatment is painless, bladeless, safe and US-FDA Approved.
- There is no need of dressing for stitches after the surgery.
What Are The Surgery Options For Laser/LASIK In Nigeria?
Under this method, the cornea flap is created using a blade but it is painless and secured. It is one of the most basic standards for LASIK surgery.
Femto LASIK (Blade Free)
It is an advanced version of Standard LASIK and the most high-level LASIK surgery today. Instead of using a blade to create the corneal flap, a Femtosecond laser is used to create the flap. The whole process is completely automated. A high level of protection and efficiency is guaranteed with Femto LASIK.
SMILE is a flapless, bladeless, and dressings-free surgery. The recovery takes a few days, about 7 – 10 days. The dry eye aftereffects of the surgery are less with a SMILE.
ICL / Implants
ICL is the most advanced vision correction procedure adopted worldwide. The aspherical lens is fixed and placed over the natural lens of the eye surgically for vision correction errors asking for remarkable results.
An improvement in spectacle removal surgery was also recognized by Contoura LASIK. The high level of accuracy with the surgery is majorly due to the topographical mapping of the eye. Contoura works on the visual axis rather than the pupillary axis. This treatment on the visual axis brings intensified visual clarity.
