LASIK is safe, painless, quick, and delivers excellent results with very short recovery time. People who undergo this treatment will find their dependence on glasses or Contact Lenses greatly reduced if not eliminated altogether.
LASIK Personalized Treatment
Your eyes and your vision are as unique to you as your fingerprints and no two people are alike. However, standard laser treatments will treat two people with the same prescription in the same way. That’s why glasses, contact lenses and conventional laser surgery address only “lower-order aberrations” such as nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.
A lot of people experience symptoms such as halos, starbursts and glare which are caused by “higher-order aberrations”. This can affect people in several ways, for example while driving at night.
A LASIK Personalized Treatment takes both lower and higher-order aberrations into consideration and delivers a treatment based on each eye’s unique visual fingerprint. This procedure is the most advanced form of laser vision correction available today.
LASIK can be very successful when performed on the right patients. In general, good candidates must be of a certain age, have had a stable prescription during the last 6-12 months, a diagnosed refractive disorder and healthy eyes. If you are interested in this procedure, you should ask your doctor to determine whether or not LASIK is a safe and viable option for improving your vision. This decision will be based on a special series of tests, as well as a detailed medical history.
What to Expect During the LASIK?
LASIK surgery begins when you enter the laser room and are lying down in a relaxed position on the laser bed. Anesthetic drops are then applied to numb your eye. The surgeon will adjust the laser bed, so that your eye is positioned directly underneath the laser. A special device is then used to keep your eye from closing during the procedure. Next, the surgeon will create a corneal flap and then gently re-shape your cornea with the laser. With the laser aligned to the eye, you will be asked to fixate on a blinking light. At this point the surgeon is ready to start the laser process which only lasts for a few seconds and within minutes you are free to walk out.
SUPRACOR™ - The LASIK-Based Treatment for Presbyopia
SUPRACOR is the LASIK-based treatment for presbyopia. SUPRACOR is a unique, clinically proven1 laser procedure designed to help patients see objects close up again while maintaining your distance vision. SUPRACOR treats one or both eyes and provides good vision at all distances (near, intermediate and far). Not everyone is an ideal candidate for a SUPRACOR treatment. The ophthalmologist can explain your options in detail, determine your suitability and discuss probable outcomes and any associated risks and compromises to your current vision.
What to Expect During the Procedure?
A SUPRACOR treatment does not differ from a normal LASIK treatment. The laser procedure itself only takes a few seconds and special numbing eyedrops assure that it is as comfortable as possible and completely painless.
