LASIK Eye Surgery

Myopia, also known as near sightedness, is a vision problem experienced by up to about one-third of the population. Nearsighted people have difficulty when it comes to reading highway signs and seeing other objects at a distance, but can see for up-close tasks such as reading.

Nearsightedness happens when the eyeball is slightly longer than usual from front to back. This causes light rays to focus at a point in front of the retina, rather than directly on its surface. This condition can run in families and usually appears during childhood. This vision problem may stabilize at a certain point, although sometimes it worsens with age. Myopia may be corrected with glasses, contact lenses or refractive surgery.

This procedure can reduce or even eliminate your need for glasses or contacts. The most common procedures are performed with an excimer laser. In laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) - the most common refractive procedure - a flap is cut through the top of the cornea, a laser removes some corneal tissue and then the flap is dropped back into place.

After this surgery, the majority of patients experience improved vision immediately. Even so, you must remember that complete LASIK surgery recovery can take up to six months as vision takes some time to stabilize following the procedure.

    LASIK is a surgery that works by using a two-step process. The first step involves creating a thin round corneal flap. This can be done either with a laser or with a blade. The laser or blade creates a flap on the cornea, which is lifted to reveal the corneal tissue underneath. The second step involves using another laser to reshape the cornea. Here Opthalmologist In Carlsbad San Diego Dr. Tracy says that to be a LASIK candidate, patients must meet certain criteria, such as age, be free of eye injuries and infection, cannot have any refractive errors, and much more.

    The eye is a fragile organ, and requires extreme care before, during, and after a surgical procedure. Lasik ocular surgery is wonderful surgery. I liked it specially because you do not need to glasses and contact lenses. To know more facilitators like Lasik visit site
