Those who have long suffered from refractive errors will be glad to know

Those who have long suffered from refractive errors will be glad to know that there are revolutionary laser techniques that can help rid them of the hassle of wearing corrective eyewear and benefit from a newfound sense of freedom. These types of laser eye surgeries have grown in popularity in last couple of years with the advancement of technology and extensive surgeon research in this field which has resulted in a broader range of people who fall into the suitability bracket. The most common (and successful) forms of laser eye surgery used to treat refractive errors are LASIK and LASEK (PRK) procedures. After undergoing a thorough screening process, your surgeon will determine your suitability for one of the above surgeries.

The LASEK procedure entails preserving the corneal epithelium in this way it differs from LASIK surgery as the ophthalmic surgeon does not create a corneal flap or scrape and remove the epithelium. Instead, your laser eye surgeon will treat the area with a diluted alcohol solution which loosens the epithelium. They will then roll back the loosened tissue and work with a laser on the exposed corneal tissue beneath. One the surgery has been completed, the surgeon simply rolls back the epithelium cells smoothly into their newly reshaped position. This reshaping process changes and channels the refraction of light which results in vastly improved vision. During LASIK eye surgery, your surgeon would have examined your cornea to ensure that it is thick enough to withstand the treatment which entails a laser or a computer-controlled instrument creating a very thin, circular flap of tissue in the outer epithelium.

Countless people have benefitted from a revolutionary laser eye procedure. The British television Presenter, Phillip Schofield, featured his laser eye surgery experience on ITV's This Morning Show where he clearly illustrated his delight in the instantaneous results and drastically improved vision. The world-famous golfer, Tiger Woods, also underwent laser eye surgery to correct his vision it's no wonder he knows how to keep his eye on the ball. In fact, after undergoing the procedure, he went on to win his next five tournaments! A few years ago, Adam Clayton, who plays the bass guitar for U2 also underwent laser eye surgery to correct his refractive error. When looking at the list of various international celebrities, it is clear that there are various fields of occupations that can benefit from laser eye surgery.

Not only are numerous people benefitting from improved vision, but many stand testimony to the incredible difference this procedure can make to everyday life. A LASIK or LASEK laser eye surgery procedure means that the patients who were previously hounded by the financial qualms of glasses or contacts are free of the hassles and afforded the freedom to make their form of corrective eyewear, redundant. Simple tasks like catching a ball, reading the paper or admiring a view are made simpler and more enjoyable. Another fantastic feature of this particular form of laser eye surgery is the fact that patients hardly experience pain, in fact - the procedure involves little to no discomfort.

To ensure a speedy recovery and relieve any possible temporary discomfort, patients are given prescribed medicated eye drops. To avoid the accidental rubbing of eyes while sleeping, patients are provided with a night shield for roughly the first week. In some cases, patients are fitted with soft contact lenses which also provide further protection and aid the healing process. The world-class ophthalmic surgeons at the London Vision Clinic expertly perform LASIK and LASEK eye surgery, vastly improving the vision and quality of life of their delighted patients. If you suffer from a refractive error and are considering laser eye surgery, contact one of the Patient Education Consultants at the London Vision Clinic today to set up a consultation.
