Are you tired of wearing glasses or do you feel the glasses do not suit your style or give you an elderly look and have contact lens intolerance, or do you feel that it is difficult to manage contact lenses? Do you like activities such as outdoor sports like golf, football, water sports or hiking but are inhibited to enjoy those due to glasses or lens wear?
The perfect and the only answer to all these problems is LASIK surgery for eye sight correction.
LASIK stands for LASER IN-SITU KERATOMILEUSIS. It is a new form of laser surgery that is capable of correcting a wide range of glass numbers. The procedure uses a computer-controlled excimer laser to reshape the cornea to correct vision. The laser reshaping is done under a protective flap of tissue to promote a very rapid recovery of vision and minimize discomfort.
Light falling on the cornea [the front surface of the eye] has a smooth curvature- referred to as a "wave front". As this smooth wave front shape courses through the various optics of the eye, ocular aberrations (imperfections) are induced. It results in an irregular wave front curvature reaching the retinal surface, which degrades the retinal image quality. An aberration-free eye would result in a smooth wave front image on the retinal surface. Wave front-guided customized LASIK, also referred to as "customized ablation" or custom LASIK performs corrections based on individual wave front measurements.
Custom LASIK or Custom Wave front LASIK, treatment replaces “one treatment fits all“ with a procedure that is tailored to the individual eye. While standard laser eye treatment (without Wave front guidance) gives very high quality results for the majority of patients, many peoples\' eyes are not \'standard\'. Their eyes might require a specially tailored treatment.
Thus, any individual above 18 years of age, who does not have unstable spectacle power, is not pregnant or nursing and not suffering from uncontrolled diabetes or vascular disease, is a good candidate for the surgery and can easily get his vision corrected through the wonderful LASIK surgery.
