The Ins And Outs Of Lasik Eye Surgery
If you’re suffering from nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism, don’t worry anymore. Help is at hand. Trust in LASIK (Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis), a revolutionary form of non-invasive, non-surgical laser eye surgery to restore your eyesight. Your eyesight can be rectified in as little as 15 minutes, and you can be back at your desk in a day’s time. Your eyesight will improve within 24 hours, and continue to improve over the weeks that follow. Once you’ve had the Lasik surgery, you can put away those glasses and contact lenses. You won’t need them anymore.
The Technical Aspects Of Lasik Surgery
The Lasik procedure is quite simple. The patient’s eyes are flooded with anesthetic eye drops, which take effect almost immediately. After this, the eye surgeon creates a flap in the cornea region, and removes the affected corneal tissue using the blue ultraviolet light of an excimer laser.
The corneal manipulations vary from case to case. To fix nearsightedness, the surgeon flattens the cornea. To enable farsighted people to see better, the surgeon creates a steep cornea. The cornea is usually misshapen in people suffering from astigmatism; in such cases, the surgeon reshapes the cornea to rectify vision.
Lasik Surgery Patient Eligibility
To be eligible for Lasik surgery, you must be at least 18 years old and must be free of any eye diseases or abnormalities. Your eye surgeon will recommend that you stop using your contacts or glasses several weeks before the procedure. Unless there are any dire exigencies in your case, you should be eligible for basic Lasik surgery.
What About Hospitalization?
If you’re worried about a lengthy hospital stay post operation, then stop. The surgery only takes a few minutes, after which you’re free to go home. You will have to rest your eyes for a day or two, and avoid strenuous activity. You will not be required to stay at the hospital, or wear unsightly bandages. You can get back to work on the very next day if you want to.
