LASER EYE SURGERY CONSULTATION
Laser eye surgery is a type of refractive surgery that uses a laser to reshape the cornea, the clear front part of the eye. This can correct vision problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.
There are several different types of laser eye surgery, but the most common are LASIK and PRK.
LASIK (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis) is the most common type of laser eye surgery. LASIK surgery involves creating a flap in the cornea and then using a laser to reshape the underlying corneal tissue. The flap is then replaced.
PRK (photorefractive keratectomy) is a type of laser eye surgery that does not involve creating a flap in the cornea. Instead, the laser is used to reshape the corneal tissue directly.
Refractive lens exchange (RLE) is a surgical procedure that replaces the natural lens of the eye with an intraocular lens (IOL). IOLs are small, clear lenses that are implanted in the eye to correct refractive errors, such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. RLE can also be used to correct presbyopia, a condition that causes blurred vision at near distances.
Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL) is a surgical procedure that involves the implantation of a small, clear lens inside the eye to correct refractive errors such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. It is a safe and effective alternative to laser eye surgery, and it can provide long-lasting results.
If you are considering laser eye surgery, be sure to talk to your eye doctor about the risks and benefits of the procedure. They can help you to determine if laser eye surgery is right for you.
