LASIK and Femto LASIK
LASIK (Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis)
The principle of LASIK is to reshape the curvature of the cornea to correct the ability to refract light, thereby correcting the vision and reducing the dependence on the glasses and contact lenses.
Though LASIK laser surgery, the corneal flap bottom surface is finer and the thickness is more uniform, which greatly reduces the surgical sequelae, such as irregular astigmatism or chord light and so on.
LASIK surgery is more than 20 years of history, as early as 1987 approved by the US FDA. Since launched, 40 million people have received the surgery. Hong Kong is one of the most growing cities of receiving Lasik surgery in the world. There are only 0.14 seconds needed to reduce 100 degrees. The process is safe and quick. No anesthesia needle is needed, the doctor will only drop anesthetic into patients’ eyes and there is no pain during and after the surgery. It is convenient that most people will be able to restore clear vision on the day after surgery. Patients can work, go out or read as usual.
Benefits of LASIK laser fixation:
– The process only takes a few seconds, convenient and quick
– New 7D technology, safer and more accurate
– fast recovery
– Can correct myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and effectively reduce presbyopia
– No need to wear glasses again
LASIK can correct the degree of myopia up to 1400 degrees, hyperopia up to 600 degrees and astigmatism up to 600 degrees. The ophthalmologist will make a detailed examination before correction, to ensure the patient is suitable for surgery. If there is a transient eye dry situation, the doctor will use moisturizing eye drops to solve the problem and the eye will return to normal water secretion usually in a few weeks after surgery. However, if the corneal is too thin, the pupils are too large, or there are other issues that unsuitable for doing LASIK, there are other methods of choice, such as implantable contact lenses or ReLEx SMILE Small Incision Lenticule Extraction. Please contact your ophthalmologist to recommend you a suitable method of vision correction.
