Types of Laser Eye Surgery

Laser assisted corrective eye surgery is a modern technique conceived to treat common ophthalmic conditions such as hyperopia and myopia. The most common laser surgery techniques employed to correct these conditions are Photorefractive Keratectomy, Radial Keratotomy and Laser Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis (also known as LASIK surgery). Ophthalmic surgeons generally use Radial Keratotomy to treat myopia and astigmatism, which involves making a number of small incisions into the cornea with a diamond knife, before using the laser to reshape the surface of the cornea.

PRK (Photo Refractive Keratotomy) is one of the more established treatments for hyperopia and myopia, involving the use of an excimer laser to ablate a section of the cornea, permanently altering its shape. LASIK is a newer technique with a far higher success rate than its predecessor. LASIK surgery involves ablating a number of predefined areas of the cornea to manipulate its overall shape.

Risks Associated With Laser Vision Correction

As with any surgical procedure, there is always the possibility that something may not go according to plan. Sometimes complications can arise during surgery, that can result in your sight being negatively impacted after the procedure. Common complaints include a glare or halo effect when driving at night, dry eyes, corneal irritation and blurred vision. In extreme cases, it’s possible you could suffer a partial or total loss of eye sight in one or both eyes. Fortunately, with the skill of surgeons today, many of these complications can be treated with further surgery, and most people make a full recovery.
