What exactly is it?
Laser eye surgery, also known as laser vision correction, involves the use of lasers to reshape the front surface (cornea) of your eyes in order to improve focus. It can correct short- and long-sightedness, as well as astigmatism.
Who is it appropriate for?
Most people over the age of 18 are candidates for laser eye surgery. Ideally, your eye prescription should have remained consistent for at least two years. Lens surgery may be more appropriate if you have a high spectacle prescription or if you are older.
What exactly is it?
Laser eye surgery is classified into three types: LASIK, SMILE, and surface laser treatments.
LASIK is performed using two lasers, one to open a thin flap in the surface of the cornea and the other to reshape the cornea beneath. The protective flap is then smoothed back over and secured without the use of stitches.
SMILE – your cornea is reshaped by the surgeon through a small, self-sealing hole.
Surface laser treatments (PRK, LASEK, and TransPRK) – the clear skin covering the cornea is removed so that the surgeon can use a laser to reshape your cornea. The skin then regrows on its own.
The outcomes of all three types of laser eye surgery are comparable. Your surgeon will go over your options with you and assist you in making a decision.
