So, what are the main things to find out about? Let’s have a look at what anyone considering Laser Eye Treatment should know.
The basics - What does Laser Eye Surgery do?
Laser Eye Surgery is a way of permanently correcting your vision. The procedure uses a special type of laser to gently reshape the surface of the eye in order to correct certain vision problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism (distorted vision).
Over 30 million people worldwide have chosen to undergo this quick, painless and yet life-changing procedure, to achieve 20/20 vision. Laser eye surgery gives you the opportunity to live a life free from the inconvenience and cost of having to wear glasses and contact lenses.
The science bit - Are there different types of Laser Eye Surgery?
Yes, there are two types of laser eye procedures called LASIK and LASEK/PRK. The key difference between these procedures involves the method of preparing the cornea. LASEK, (also referred to as PRK) was the first type of laser eye surgery for vision correction and is the predecessor to the popular LASIK procedure.
LASIK laser eye surgery treatment involves creating a very thin circular ‘flap’ in this outer layer of the cornea, using a laser surgical tool (femtosecond laser). In LASEK surgery, instead of using a laser, the surgeon simply loosens the top layer of cells of the cornea using a special solution.
