The Femto-LASIK procedure

LASIK (Laser-Assisted in situ Keratomileusis)

27 October 2014 | LASER SURGERY | Цитата

LASIK is a life-changing surgical procedure that uses a computer- controlled laser to reshape the cornea of the eye. At our Center we use the most advanced laser equipment for the LASIK procedure. If you have considered laser vision correction, our Center’s Diagnostis and laser treatment department’s surgeons can guide you through the entire process - from initial consultation all the way through follow-up care. Let us help you research this life-changing advance in eye care.

Since 2006 name of Dr. Yelena A. Malayan has become synonymous with excellence in laser vision correction in Armenia. Dr. Malayan has over 8 years of experience in refractive surgery. During these years she has performed over 4 800 successful vision correction procedures.

When you have All-Laser LASIK at our Center, your treatment is based on specific measurements that are taken during your extensive and detailed pre-operative examination.

What Are the Advantages of LASIK Eye Surgery?
LASIK has many benefits, including:
• It corrects vision. Around 96% of patients will have their desired vision after LASIK. An enhancement can further increase this number.
• LASIK is associated with very little pain due to the numbing drops that are used.
• Vision is corrected nearly immediately or by the day after LASIK.
• No bandages or stitches are required after LASIK.
• Adjustments can be made years after LASIK to further correct vision if vision changes while you age.
• After having LASIK, most patients have a dramatic reduction in eyeglass or contact lens dependence and many patients no longer need them at all.

What Are the Potential Side Effects of LASIK Eye Surgery?
Some patients experience discomfort in the first 24 to 48 hours after LASIK eye surgery. Other side effects, although rare, may include:
• Glare
• Seeing halos around images
• Difficulty driving at night
• Fluctuating vision
• Dry eyes

PRK- Photorefractive Keratectomy
PRK is a laser eye surgery procedure intended to correct a person's vision, reducing dependency on glasses or contact lenses. The first PRK procedure was performed in 1987 by Dr. Theo Seiler, then at the Free University Medical Center in Berlin, Germany. PRK is a eye surgery used to correct mild to moderate nearsightedness , farsightedness and/or astigmatism . PRK is indicated for moderate to higher degrees of myopia and for myopes with corneal thickness insufficient for LASIK. During PRK, an eye surgeon uses a laser to reshape the cornea. This laser, which delivers a cool pulsing beam of ultraviolet light, is used on the surface of the cornea not underneath a flap of the cornea, as in LASIK.

For those who don’t qualify for LASIK, PRK is an option. The Advanced CustomVue laser vision correction treatment can be used in those patients for surface treatment, or prk. That includes people who are nearsighted or farsighted—with or without all forms of astigmatism, including mixed astigmatism. The PRK procedure offers a level of accuracy, safety and customization. Special high-technology tools allow us to precisely measure and correct the imperfections in each eye, which means treatment is uniquely tailored to the individual.
PRK does not involve the creation of a flap; rather, the treatment is applied directly to the corneal surface. PRK has seen a great resurgence in the past few years, thanks to the improved technology and greater understanding of the limitations of LASIK in certain eyes.
