Laser eye surgery is considered as effective, highly productive and bladeless treatment that uses ‘Excimer’ to correct your vision. The excimer laser is used to carve the irregular corneal tissue that passes light rays from the retina of the eye and remove blurry vision.
Laser eye surgery is of three types that are as follow:
LASIK: it is known as laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis that is used to reshape the corneal flap of the eye. Lasik surgery enables to enter the light so that your eye becomes properly focused on the retina; this surgery is mostly used to eliminate the eyesight defects like myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism and make your vision clear.
LASEK: it is abbreviated as laser-assisted subepithelial keratectomy, this surgery is mostly recommended to the people who have thin corneal surface. After the laser sculpting, it makes the corneal flap thick with the help of the mechanical device that is microkeratome. This surgery also eliminates the dryness, allergies from your eyes.
PRK: This surgery is done without the use of any knife, microkeratome or much more. In PRK, the computer can control the Excimer laser to eliminate the epithelium of the cornea. It also reshapes the cornea and during surgery, the person feels little bit pain.
The person undergoes PRK surgery takes more time to recover as compared to Lasik surgery. If you are tired of using contact lenses or spectacles then these surgeries give you best and effective results. You can also click here to know more about laser eye surgery.
