What’s Laser Eye Surgery?

Laser eye surgery, also known as refractive surgery or vision correction surgery, refers to a group of surgical procedures designed to correct vision problems, particularly refractive errors such as near-sightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism. The most common types of laser eye surgery include LASIK and RELEX SMILE.

What’s LASIK?

LASIK (Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis): LASIK is one of the most popular forms of laser eye surgery. During the procedure, a thin flap is created on the surface of the cornea using a microkeratome or a femtosecond laser. The underlying corneal tissue is then reshaped using an excimer laser to correct the refractive error. Finally, the flap is repositioned, allowing for rapid healing.

What’s RELEX Smile Lasik?

RELEX Smile Lasik (Small Incision Lenticule Extraction): SMILE is a newer form of laser eye surgery that involves the use of a femtosecond laser to create a small, lens-shaped piece of tissue within the cornea, which is then removed through a small incision. This reshapes the cornea and corrects the refractive error, all through a single small incision.

Laser eye surgery aims to reduce or eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses by reshaping the cornea to improve its focusing ability. The choice of procedure depends on factors such as the individual’s refractive error, corneal thickness, and overall eye health. It’s essential for individuals considering laser eye surgery to undergo a comprehensive eye examination and consultation with an experienced ophthalmologist to determine the most suitable treatment option for their specific needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

How is laser eye surgery performed?

LASIK surgery typically takes about 10 minutes per eye, and both eyes can often be treated during the same session. Other types of laser eye surgery, such as PRK or SMILE, have similar steps with some variations in how the cornea is accessed and reshaped.

Is laser eye surgery risky?

Patients who undergo laser eye surgery achieve improved vision with minimal complications. However, it’s crucial to discuss the potential risks and benefits with our qualified ophthalmologist and undergo a thorough pre-operative evaluation to determine suitability for the procedure. Adhering to post-operative care instructions and attending follow-up appointments can also help minimize the risk of complications.

Who’s not a suitable candidate for laser eye surgery?

LASIK is a widely performed and successful procedure, but not everyone is a suitable candidate. Factors that may disqualify someone from undergoing LASIK surgery include, thin corneas, unstable prescriptions, certain eye conditions such as keratoconus (a progressive thinning and bulging of the cornea), severe dry eye syndrome, corneal dystrophies, glaucoma, cataracts, or other retinal diseases.

Pregnant and nursing women are also not suitable candidates for laser eye surgery. Hormonal changes during pregnancy and breastfeeding can affect vision, making it difficult to accurately assess the patient’s refractive error. Additionally, medications used during pregnancy and breastfeeding may pose risks to the developing fetus or nursing infant.

Finally, some systemic conditions, such as autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis or lupus, may affect the body’s ability to heal properly after surgery. Patients with poorly controlled diabetes or immunodeficiency disorders may also have increased risks of complications.

Does Laser eye surgery hurt?

During laser eye surgery, most patients do not experience significant pain due to the administration of local anaesthesia in the form of numbing eye drops. However, it’s common for patients to feel some pressure or discomfort during certain parts of the procedure.

What’s the minimum age for laser eye surgery?

While there isn’t a strict age limit for LASIK, younger individuals are typically advised to wait until their vision has stabilized, usually around the late teens or early twenties. Conversely, older individuals may not be good candidates if they have significant age-related eye changes, such as cataracts or presbyopia.

What should I expect to feel after laser eye surgery?

After laser eye surgery, such as LASIK, PRK, or SMILE, it’s normal to experience some common sensations and symptoms as part of the healing process. You might feel discomfort, tearing, light sensitivity, blurry vision, dry eyes and mild pain or headache. It’s important to follow your surgeon’s post-operative instructions carefully, including using prescribed eye drops, avoiding rubbing your eyes, and avoiding strenuous activities for a specified period.
