Standard LASIK

We believe that everyone has the right to see things clearly. That is why we have chosen to devote our life to offering people with the finest eye doctors available.

Overview Standard LASIK

In 1999, the United States Food and Drug Administration approved LASIK (laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis) as a revolutionary laser vision correction treatment that enables most patients to cast off glasses or contact lenses altogether. By reshaping the cornea through this process, it can treat nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism. With newer technologies like bladeless LASIK and custom LASIK available on the rise too, traditional LASIK still remains widely accepted due to its remarkable safety record and effectiveness. In some cases, conventional methods are still regarded as being one of the best options out there.

If you’re considering LASIK surgery, it’s important to take the FDA’s standards into account and consult with your doctor before making a decision. Remember that while this is a relatively common procedure, its complexity demands an experienced surgeon! With proper research on both sides, you can decide if LASIK is the right choice for you.

Standard LASIK Procedure

By using a microkeratome – an oscillating blade-like instrument – during LASIK surgery, it is possible to make a minute incision on the corneal surface. To raise this flap, suction with minimal force will be administered and subsequently used to perfect the curvature of the cornea by means of an excimer laser.

Subsequently, the flap is closed and will recuperate without any need for stitches or sutures. You will be totally aware during the operation; no general anesthesia is needed. To ensure your comfort, eye drops that generate numbness are used to keep you feeling relaxed. Every surgery takes only five to fifteen minutes per eye – simple and straightforward!

Benefits of Standard LASIK

LASIK is a relatively safe surgical procedure with few adverse effects and little pain afterward. Our laser specs removals have helped people abandon their glasses for good.

Some of the advantages of Standard Lasik eye surgery surgery are:

  • In as little as 30 seconds, the flap can be formed.
  • By utilizing this technique, the patient will not need to be transferred throughout the surgery as all of it can take place in one room.
  • With microkeratome instruments, you can effortlessly cut through any inconsistency in color or opacity without worrying about difficulties. No re-calibration is needed!
  • In addition to the existing microkeratome system, other procedures such as eliminating epithelial flaps can be utilized in order to construct epithelial flap reconstructions.
  • Traditional LASIK surgery is notably less likely to cause inflammation, making it a more suitable option for those looking to prevent uncomfortable side effects.
  • Compared to traditional surgeries, microkeratome procedures are an economical solution!

Blade Vs Bladeless LASIK

Please keep in mind that one approach isn’t superior than the other. To determine which treatment is ideal for a patient, an ophthalmologist must examine him or her.

LASIK Surgery Aftercare

Most patients see without glasses following a Lasik procedure. However, because corneal stabilization and healing might take as long as 6 months, it is recommended that you wait this long before applying for vision correction. Corneal stability is necessary before repeating operations on the eye.

  • On the day of treatment, you can anticipate some blurring and watering in your vision as well as a sense of discomfort.
  • By the following day, your sight should be brighter and more comfortable.
  • When administering drops, handle the flap with extreme caution to avoid disruption.
  • For an entire week, refrain from getting water in the eyes or taking a head bath.

  • Light sensitivity, glare, dryness, and blurred night vision may be expected side effects which should gradually improve as time passes.
