Modern medical technology has made laser vision correction surgery safer and more accurate than ever before.

Laser Vision Correction

Laser Vision Correction

Your cornea is one of the most vital components of your eye and is essential for good eyesight. The job of your cornea, or the “window” of your eye, is to refract or bend light rays, enabling them to focus on the retina. Vision disorders result when the cornea is unable to focus light accurately where it should on the retina.

The LASIK procedure corrects the shape of the cornea, enabling it to focus the light rays precisely where they should be focused. LASIK, an acronym for “laser-assisted in situ keratomileuses,” is one of the safest, most effective, and popular elective procedures for vision correction.

Laser surgery is used to correct the following visual disorders:

  • Farsightedness (hyperopia)
    Hyperopia is a condition where either the cornea is less curved or the eye is too short. This leads to the light rays focusing too far behind the retina, causing the near vision to worsen and become blurred. However, the far distance vision is not impacted.
  • Nearsightedness (myopia)
    This is the most common refractive disorder. Myopia occurs if the eye is too long or the cornea is too curved. This condition results in the light rays focusing in front of the retina instead of focusing on the retina. People who are myopic (nearsighted) see better at near distances, but their long-distance vision is blurred.
  • Astigmatism
    Astigmatism occurs when your cornea is shaped liked a rugby ball with two different curvatures, therefore two different focal points. As a result, the images appear ghostly or blurry due to the unequally refracted light rays.

Laser vision correction uses a precise computer-controlled laser to gradually correct the shape of the cornea. This allows light rays to focus more directly on the retina, ultimately reducing your dependence on corrective lenses. The in-office procedure lasts only a few minutes for each eye, and most patients can return to work the next day. The procedure can correct refractive errors such as astigmatism, nearsightedness, and farsightedness.

To go for a LASIK Surgery, you must fulfill the following criteria:

  • Would prefer to lessen or eliminate your dependency on glasses or contacts.
  • Are aged 19 or above.
  • Have had a steady eye prescription for one or more years.
  • Should not have any health issues affecting the eyes.
  • Have no signs of glaucoma or significant cataract.

The LASIK process aims to minimize or eradicate a patient’s dependence on corrective lenses. It does not always create the perfect vision. Some patients might still require reading or driving glasses occasionally after the procedure. There are several benefits of the laser vision correction process. However, the LASIK process also involves certain risks.

This is why at Dr. Akbar Eye Hospital, we use the most sophisticated technology available to reduce risk and maximize the accuracy of the procedure. After a detailed eye examination, your eye doctor will let you know if LASIK is a feasible treatment option for your condition.
