What Is Laser Eye Surgery?
Laser eye surgery corrects poor vision, giving you freedom
from your glasses and contact lenses, so you can live your life to the fullest. It’s a very simple procedure that takes anything from a matter of seconds to just a few minutes, depending upon the level of correction that’s required. It can correct short-sightedness, long-sightedness and astigmatism. A cool beam advanced laser makes subtle adjustments to the shape of the surface of your eye (the cornea), correcting its tiny imperfections and making your vision clearer and sharper. Patients are amazed at how quickly they recover and the speed at which they can enjoy a life free from your glasses and contact lenses. The improvements in your vision after laser eye surgery are truly remarkable.
Is There More Than One Type Of Laser Eye Surgery?
Yes, the two best-known and most popular types of laser eye
surgery are LASIK, LASEK (also referred to as PRK) and
ReLEx SMILE. Both LASIK and LASEK can be enhanced by iDesign, a highly advanced innovation which takes over 1,200 measurements from your eye to create a personalised ‘map’. This allows your treatment to be tailored specifically to you and is 25 times more accurate than contact lenses or glasses.
