Lasik Laser Eye Surgery Corrects Most Patient's Common Vision Problems

Feb 27, 2008
Lasik or laser in situ keratomileusis is a precision laser eye surgery to correct the refractive error in vision. Some primary types of refractive error are Myopia or nearsightedness; Hyperopia or farsightedness and Astigmatism. Lasik surgery will be scheduled by your ophtalmologist if the patients meet the qualifications and after all risks are evaluated.

This will be done with the initial baseline eye exam.
The corneal tissue in the eye during surgery will be albated which reshapes the cornea determined for the patient. The cornea is the front surface of the eye and the lens is eye allows the eye to focus. The refractive error occurs when the lens and the cornea are mismatched and vision is then blurred.

Lasik surgery vision may improve as much as 20/20 or better. With successful surgery the patient no longer needs to wear corrective eyewear as with contact lenses or glasses. Lasik laser eye surgery is safe and effective to correct eye vision problems. Most patients are very pleased with the results. Only less that five percent of patients experience complications.

Risk for the surgery include light sensitivity, halos or glared vision, irregular astigmatism, dry eyes, loss of visual clarity and sensitivity. With the continued improving technology these complications are significantly reduced and if they occur can be corrected with other treatments.

Lasik surgery correct most patient's common vision problems as with Myopia or Hyperopia and Astigmatism or distorted vision.

Some questions to ask your ophthalmologist during the initial eye exam are the risk of surgical complications. Although laser surgery is safe, but because it is surgery, complications may occur that can affect your vision. Your ophthalmologist may not qualify you if your vision is unstable or if you have any health conditions that may inhibit healing after surgery as autoimmune diseases.

Playing contact sports activities may dislocate the cornea flap, this is a lifelong risk. If you are under 18 refractive error is unstable and older patients may have other eye problems and cataracts or Keratoconus which is a corneal disease that decreases cornea strength. All of these may disqualify you for Lasik surgery. Those with Presbyopia or who wear reading glasses may not be candidates as well as older patients that have developed cataracts or other aging eye and vision problems.

Call your ophthalmologist or Houston Lasik surgeon for more information. Qualified Lasik surgery is available across America and in Texas in cities as Houston, Dallas, Austin and San Antonio.
