LASIK Surgeons and Houston

Oct 11, 2007
While in the past bad eyesight meant you were finished; this is the case no longer. To end the use of glasses, laser eye (LASIK) surgeons kept on trying to find a way to fix the eyesight problem- and soon made LASIK. LASIK means Laser Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis, a form of laser eye surgery. Even though contact lenses allow those with poor eyes to see without glasses, LASIK surgeons fix the eyes forever. Nowhere is that more evident than in the state of Texas, and a Houston LASIK surgeon may be your best bet when in the state.

Previous generations used a metal blade to make the corneal flap, today's surgerons use a laser - which is faster and less painful. The laser used today is the excimer laser; discovered by Dr. Bhaumik in May, 1973. Ever since an ultraviolet excimer laser was discovered capable of altering tissue while giving no thermal damage to the surrounding area, scientific discoveries were made for the use of the excimer laser by LASIK surgeons, meaning the process today is far less complicated than the one of the past. While dozens of problems were found in the past, they have since been few and far between and almost no problems today are had with this type of eye surgery.

Even though it is a way to change poor eyesight by straightening out the cornea, it is not as hard to perform as normal surgery. It is done in two spells; and as it is so simple the patient does not have to be unconscious (although a sedative like Valium is sometimes used). In the first spell, a corneal flap of tissue is formed using a laser; for the second spell, the cornea is fixed in order to solve the bad eyes. Due to the laser being used, the cornea is "fooled"; it does not realize it has been altered and so a lot of the old problems (such as corneal haze) are removed.

Now that this eye surgery has been explained, we must examine Houston LASIK surgeons. They continue to get better with more and more LASIK companies starting up. LASIK surgeons in Houston have a system that is one of the quickest eye correction systems, with more than four hundred laser bursts per second, patient time under the laser is lessened, meaning the patient's experience will be better.
