LASIK Eye Surgery

By Hanna Nilson

If you struggle with nearsightedness, farsightedness or if you have astigmatism, get rid of those eye glasses or contacts… LASIK eye surgery could be the right solution for you!


Anyone who wears eye glasses or contacts knows how expensive they can be, not to mention the inconvenience of having to change prescriptions and keep up with supply. Well, believe it or not, LASIK eye surgery has been in practice since the 1950s! Now, as reported by LasikPlus, LASIK eye surgery is one of America’s most frequently preformed surgeries. Of course, since then, technology has advanced and procedures have thus become a more quick and easy solution to practically all types of eye correction needs. In fact, most patients notice a difference in the clarity of their vision by the very next day!

As you consider LASIK eye surgery as a solution for your specific needs, you may find it useful to know a bit more about the procedure and its various other alternatives. For instance, LASIK eye surgery is a procedure that reshapes the cornea of the eye by using a small beam of light from an excimer laser. Variations of this operation include the LASEK eye sugary procedure, in which a tiny layer of your eye is removed in order to reach the cornea. LASEK may be suggested by your doctor as a better fit for your case. This is because, for some people, the cornea is not thick enough to endure a regular LASIK operation. If LASEK is the eye surgery of choice, you may experience a longer recovery time as well as an extended discomfort of the eyes.

For anyone who might be extra sensitive or nervous about the traditional LASIK eye surgery procedure; you may want to consider a No-Blade LASIK or INTRALASIK operation. This type of eye surgery is a far more advanced and precise approach to eye correction. Instead of using a razor or any mechanical device, INTERLASIK computer software is used to create laser micro-pulses which can construct the cornea flap for a safe an accurate means for operation.

Another type of corrective eye surgery is the Conductive Keratoplasty (CK). While this treatment may not produce the most keen vision enhancement, results are enough to reduce dependence on eye glasses or contacts. CK eye sugary is extremely precise, so there is a lesser risk for complications and side effects. By applying mild heat energy, which is generated by radio frequencies, eye surgeons can reshape the corneal curvature. This helps the eye to focus better. Most people may notice almost an immediate d difference in their nearsighted vision. However, it will take a few weeks for total stabilization and recovery.

Of course, as with any sugary, a full preoperative evaluation is necessary to determine whether or not you are a good candidate. If you so chose, or if recommended by your eye doctor, a customized LASIK, LASEK or INTERLASIK procedure is always an option. Custom LASIK offers Wavefront technology to reconstruct or reshape the cornea. This is ultimately one of the most technologically advanced procedures for eye operation which renders an unparalleled level of accuracy and safety during your eye surgery procedure.
