Looking to get LASER correction for specs removal?

In today’s world of smartphones, laptops and, other devices, continued strain on the eyes can introduce refractive errors . Refractive errors are basically when excessive stress causes a change in the shape of the eyeand prevents light from focusing directly on the retina. Some symptoms of refractive errors include double vision, haziness, headaches, eye strain, sqinting and glare among others.

A comprehensive dilated eye examination by an eye-care professional can help diagnose these refractive errors. In order to correct these refractive errors, many people opt for corrective surgeries. Many people also opt for the surgery for removing their spectacles .The surgery for correcting refractive errors is performed via femtosecond laser or an excimer laser and a microkeratome. Generally, in this corrective eye surgery, the surgeons cut up a small circular ‘flap’ of the cornea . This flap then folded back to access the underlying cornea and perform the laser treatment for eyes.

LASIK Eye Surgery

LASIK stands for Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis. 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 clear up the front portion of the eye. That’s why it is also sometimes called eyelid surgery. The laser treatment for eyes is generally a painless procedure and barely takes around 20 minutes for both eyes.

What Refractive Problems Does LASIK Laser Eye Surgery Correct?

Refractive errors are pretty common nowadays, with 22.9% of the world population having the condition of myopia and about 10% having hyperopia that makes about for about 2.5 billion people having one eye imperfection or the other. In India alone, close to 20% teenagers have an eye condition this is mainly caused by over extne.

Now that we have discussed the refractive errors, let’s take a look at how laser surgery for correction can help improve your vision for the various imperfections of the eye. LASIK has been proven to to be effective for resolving these errors in a superior fashion as compared to contact lenses and specacles. Maybe wearing spectacles/contact lenses and taking care of them doesn’t suit your personal lifestyle and you would rather get a surgery to get it fixed. The laser corrective eye surgery helps resolve the following issues.

Myopia [Near Sightedness]

Myopia or nearsightedness is a condition of the eye in which the eye can focus  nearby objects perfectly but, far-away objects are not focused properly..This could lead to problems like not being able to identify far away objects along with hadaches, eye strains and other effects  if not attended to quickly. In myopia, the eye shape gets a little elongated which causes errors in the focusing of the eye. In the laser eye surgery correction for myopia, the aim is basically to flatten the cornea to help focus the light properly onto the retina.

Myopia is basically treated by reducing the steep curvature of the cornea and deacreasing the focusing power of the eye. Hence, by making the cornea flatter the images focusing infront of the retian will now focus directly onto the retina .This is reason if you ever had spectacles for improving far away vision, they have a negative power lens.

Hyperopia [Far Sightedness]

Hyperopia or Far Sightedness is in many ways the reverse condition of myopia, where the eye can distinguish far-away objects clearly but, nearby objects are hard to visualize. Like myopia, Hyperopia, if not attended to quickly can cause severe headaches and blurred vision.In hyperopia, as opposed to myopia, the eye curvature becomes shorter than normal leading to a decreased focusing power resulting in near-by objects getting blurry.

In the laser eye surgery for hyperopia, the objective thus becomes to elongate the eye and making the cornea a little bit steeper in order to increase the focusing power of the eye.  Doing this will help  bring back the light focusing behind the retina to focus properly, improving your vision and your daily life along with it.

Astigmatism

Astigmatism might sound like a very complicated term but it basically means that the eyes are not completely round. In more sepecific techincal terms, astigmatism is basically a problem of the curvature of eyes.

Basically, in astigmatism the  curvature of the eyes is not  completely symmetrical adn the cornea is irregular. Irregularities in the cornea cause light to scatter around and cause distortions in visions .In the corrective eye surgery for astigmatism , the curvature of eye is made smooth and in symmetry by selectively reshaping the irregular portions of the cornea.

How does LASIK work?

During the LASIK procedure, a specifically trained eye surgeon first forms a rigid, thin hinged corneal flap using a microkeratome. The surgeon then pulls back the flap to show the underlying corneal tissue, and then the excimer laser reshapes the cornea in a unique pre-specified pattern for every patient. The flap is then smoothly repositioned onto the underlying cornea without stitches.

Benefits of LASIK Eye Surgery

LASIK surgery has many benefits, including:

  • LASIK surgery gives long-lasting results to patient’s improved eyesight. In future, any normal loss due to ageing or disease the LASIK surgery effect won’t last.
  • Quick recovery as a patient can get back to his normal schedules in a day after surgery.
  • Vision is improved almost in a day after surgery.
  • No dressings or stitches are expected after LASIK surgery.
  • After having LASIK surgery, many patients see a decrease in usage of eyeglass or contact lens dependence. Many people even don’t apply both of them and see clearly.

What you can expect

Before the procedure

Long-term results from LASIK tend to be best in people who are carefully assessed before surgery to ensure that they are good candidates for the surgery.

Your eye doctor will question about your medical and surgical history. And then give you a comprehensive eye examination. In the eye examination, your doctor will assess your vision. Look for symptoms of eye infections, inflammation, dry eyes, large eye pupils, high eye pressure and other eye diseases.

He or she will measure your cornea, seeing the shape, contour, thickness and any flaws. This eases your doctor evaluate whether you can undergo the surgery safely.

Your eye doctor also assesses which areas of your cornea require reshaping. He or she determines the exact amount of tissue to separate from your cornea. Doctors usually use wavefront-guided technology to assess your eye in detail before LASIK surgery. In this test, a scanner produces a highly detailed chart, same as a topographic map of your eye.

If you wear contact lenses which can change the shape of your cornea you should stop wearing them for a few weeks before your evaluation and surgery. Wear only your glasses for at least that time. Your doctor will provide important guidelines depending on your situation and how long you have to wear a contact lens.

Before surgery, your doctor will explain the risks and benefits of LASIK, what to expect before and after surgery, and any questions you may have regarding the surgery.

After the procedure

Immediately after surgery, your eye may have a feeling of itching, burning, watery and probably have blurred vision. You usually will feel little pain and you will normally recover your vision quickly.

You might be proffered pain medication or eyedrops to keep you comfortable for several hours after the procedure. Your eye doctor may also ask you to wear protection over your eye at bedtime until your eye recovers.

You might be proffered pain medication or eyedrops to keep you comfortable for several hours after the procedure. Your eye doctor may also ask you to wear protection over your eye at bedtime until your eye recovers.

You will have a follow-up appointment with your eye doctor 1-2 days after surgery. He or she will see how your eye is improving and check for any difficulties. Plan for other follow-up appointments during the 6 months after surgery as your doctor prescribes.

In a few weeks, you can begin to apply cosmetics around your eyes again. Follow your doctor’s instructions about how soon you can continue your regular activities.

Results

LASIK often offers corrected vision without the hassle of glasses or contact lenses. In usual, you have a very good possibility of achieving 20/25 vision or more helpful after refractive surgery.

Many people who have undergone LASIK refractive surgery no longer require to use their glasses or contact lenses for many of their activities.

Your results depend on your particular refractive error and other parts. People with a low grade of nearsightedness manage to have the most success with refractive surgery. People with a huge degree of nearsightedness or farsightedness along with astigmatism have less expected results. In some cases, the surgery may result in under-correction. If this occurs, you might require another surgery to achieve the proper correction.

Sometimes this shift in vision is because of another eye problem, such as a cataract. Talk to your doctor about every vision changes.
