What is Laser Vision Correction Surgery?

This revolutionary procedure is designed to correct refractive errors like myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism. It aims to reduce or eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses, enhancing visual clarity and quality of life.

During the surgery, a laser reshapes the cornea’s curvature, adjusting how light enters the eye to properly focus on the retina.

Types of Laser Vision Correction

arrow-circle-right-3 arrow-circle-right-3-light LASIK (Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis)

A thin flap is created on the cornea, which is then lifted to allow the laser to reshape the underlying tissue. The flap is then repositioned.

arrow-circle-right-3 arrow-circle-right-3-light PRK (Photorefractive Keratectomy)

The cornea's surface layer is removed before the laser reshaping, allowing direct treatment of the corneal tissue.

arrow-circle-right-3 arrow-circle-right-3-light LASEK (Laser Epithelial Keratomileusis):

Similar to LASIK, but the corneal flap is thinner, and the underlying epithelium is preserved and repositioned after the laser treatment.

arrow-circle-right-3 arrow-circle-right-3-light Epi-LASIK (Epithelial Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis)

The epithelial layer is gently separated before laser reshaping, then repositioned without creating a flap.

Individuals Who Might Not Qualify for Surgery

While laser vision correction surgery offers remarkable benefits, it may not be suitable for everyone. Individuals who fall into the following categories are generally not good candidates:

  • Children and teenagers are usually not eligible because their eyes are still developing
  • Individuals with unstable prescriptions
  • Individuals with extremely high degrees of myopia, hyperopia, or astigmatism
  • Individuals with certain eye conditions (cataracts, glaucoma, keratoconus, severe dry eye)
  • Pregnant or breastfeeding individuals
  • Individuals with autoimmune diseases (lupus, rheumatoid arthritis)
  • Individuals on certain medications (Accutane)
  • Individuals with thin corneas
