Refractive surgery

Refractive surgery

If you have a refractive error, such as nearsightedness (nearsightedness), farsightedness (nearsightedness), astigmatism, or farsightedness, refractive surgery is a method of correcting or improve your vision.

Laser surgery for myopia:

With laser surgery, the ophthalmologist reshapes the cornea of ​​the eye with the laser so that the eye focuses on the objects on the retina instead of in front of it. In this way and thanks to this operation, this refractive problem is corrected.

Laser Surgery Hyperopia (farsightedness):

In cases of hyperopia, laser surgery removes the cornea of ​​the eye with the laser to allow the image to focus on the proper place on the retina. It is important to note that a hyperopic person does not stop being after laser surgery since his eye is still a small eye. What laser surgery does is reshape the cornea so that the image is formed on the retina instead of behind it.

Laser surgery for Astigmatism:

Unlike what happens with myopia or hyperopia (farsightedness), people who suffer from astigmatism look bad at any distance.

In the operation of astigmatism and thanks to laser technology, the ophthalmologist reshapes the cornea of ​​the eye with the laser to remove these irregularities from the eye.

Through laser surgery, it is possible to give the eye the correct curvature. In this way and after the astigmatism operation, the eye can form the image on the retina on a regular basis.

Laser Refractive Surgery for Presbyopia (Tired View)

It is a solution that is not always good for correcting tired eyesight. Explained in another way, when the person is looking at a distant object, one of the eyes will be the one that will be focusing the image correctly on the retina of the eye (usually, it will be the dominant eye). When looking at a nearby object, it will be the other eye that will be focusing the image correctly on the retina. If a person sees correctly from afar, they will only have to perform laser surgery on one of the eyes. In these cases, the eyes stop working as a set and for many it is difficult to get used to. If you are contemplating laser surgery to solve a problem that you may have with eyestrain, we recommend that you first look if you can get used to the eyes stop working as a set. This can be done by putting a lens on one of the eyes that simulates the effect that laser surgery would have.

The surgical technique that is usually used is laser surgery with the LASIK method. Another, method that is usually used when working on a single eye is known as CK (conductive keratoplasty) and is based on radiofrequency energy emissions.

What is myopia?

Myopia is a common type of refractive error in which close objects are clearly seen but distant objects are blurred.

What is Farsightedness?

Used to describe an eye disorder that allows you to see objects that are “far away” or distant with sharpness in your visual field, while nearby objects are blurred or unclear.

What is Astigmatism?

When the lens shape is distorted, the condition is called lenticular astigmatism. As a result of any of these types of astigmatism, near or far vision of objects becomes blurred or distorted.
