If you are thinking about undergoing an eye surgery, think about Lasik eye surgery. Lasik is a type of surgery that is growing in popularity and has a high recovery and success rate. These are the factors that you must be looking for before you choose your form of eye surgery.
As you know, when you have vision problems such as nearsightedness or even astigmatism, there is only one way to help solve this problem; removing and/or repairing your corneal tissue.
Lasik surgery carefully removes the corneal tissue with a laser and this gentle laser then reshapes the cornea itself. This action in turn adjusts and strengthens the power your cornea has to focus on objects far and near. This type of surgery is more commonly known as refractive surgery. There are many types of eye surgeries that can be performed today to increase your vision strength. The most common other two types of surgery include, radial keratotomy and photorefractive keratectomy. These two surgeries are also aimed to reshape the cornea, but using different techniques to do so.
Lasik surgery can be done with a laser or with a small knife. The radial keratotomy is the type of eye surgery which uses this small knife. The small knife is used to make several slits in the cornea; these few small slits change the shape and the focus of your cornea. These two types of surgery are very effective as well as incredibly simple. There are little to no side effects that accompany these surgeries. Of course your eye will be incredibly sensitive following a surgery of this kind, but this is to be expected. You may feel slight irritation concerning your eye as well. These irritations are mild and a simple pain reliever will ease your pain. These symptoms are only directly following your Lasik surgery.
Lasik surgery is an eye surgery that works and that has proven success!
