Half of the population in the world has a problem with vision. With the latest technology, it has now become easy to correct all vision problems, as there is a suitable solution.
A medical procedure called laser corneal sculpting reshapes the surface of the eye by using the laser technology. It improves or corrects myopia (short-sightedness), hypermetropia (long-sightedness) and astigmatism (uneven curvature of the eye’s surface). 30 years ago the 1st laser sculpting procedure was performed.
The transparent tissue that covers the front of the eye is called the cornea. It helps to control focusing. To remove the microscopic amounts of tissue from the cornea, a computer controlled excimer is used during the laser eye surgery.
The thin outer layer of the cornea (called the corneal epithelium) is removed and the underlying layers are reshaped, in one of the operations using the excimer laser. This procedure is known as photorefractive keratectomy (PRK).
Reasons why laser eye surgery may be considered
The reason why you may consider corneal sculpting include:
One can’t wear contact lenses all the time and not prefer to wear glasses for cosmetic reason
You don’t want the care required to be taken of a contact lens
You want to engage in leisure or work or sports activities which do not allow you wear lenses or specs
Medical Issues to consider
If you thinking about laser eye surgery you should consider:
20 years old is the minimum age criteria before going for a laser surgery
The prescription in the glasses must be stable
People having a family history keratoconus, diabetes, uncontrolled rheumatic conditions must be very careful before going for a laser surgery
People with abnormally shaped or thin cornea carry extra risks if performed laser treatments on them
