|PRK Vs Lasik|
There are currently two popular methods for laser eye surgery. Usually in the form of laser treatment is LASIK. In LASIK, a small incision to create a corneal flap. Laser treatment can be. Vision loss from May 20 to 30 seconds during the procedure. LASEK the epithelium is removed before the cornea with a laser. Laser Eye Treatment takes about 15 minutes in total.
For many patients, a very LASEK LASIK treatment is desirable. After LASEK, patients may experience pain mäßig about 24 hours after surgery. The high sensitivity is often considered the first days and you will be asked to wear sunglasses outdoors during the last three months. Blurred vision or a week and can take about a month before the point of view of "seat" the patients and final results of surgery are known. Lasik treatment, there is very little postoperative discomfort and the results of surgery are obvious very quickly. The vision should be much less than in the first period after LASEK and should reassure unknown blur within 48 hours. LASIK patients will probably be able to see day after treatment.
In a minority of patients is recommended over LASIK PRK LASEK or if the patient is a thin cornea. PRK was the precursor of LASEK and works with an excimer laser to remove a thin layer of cells on the surface of the cornea with the reform of the eyes. No cutting. The main difference between PRK, LASEK and PRK, the cells are removed and the epithelium grow after the treatment, which for several days. In LASEK, the epithelium is removed with a low-alcohol content, immediately after surgery. A contact lens for several days in order to maintain employment.
ICRC has been more than ten years and only now seems to be a long-term effects. Lasek is also known as low risk. This is due to cutting unnecessary surgery for one of these laser-treated eyes. LASIK offers advantages, but because the risk of laser eye surgery. Possible complications include corneal ectasia, where the pressure build-up occurs after the weakening of the cornea. It will also require surgery, a rapid decline in May, which would otherwise occur in the eye.
The effects of laser eye surgery is permanent, but the process can not prevent a further deterioration with age.
Laser Assisted Sub-Epithelial keratectomies (or LASEK) is a method of laser surgery done to solve the problem of light refraction of the cornea. And 'specially designed for people with astigmatism, hyperopia (sight) and myopia (nearsightedness). Lasek is a technology that combines laser in situ keratomileusis supported (LASIK) and refractive keratectomies photos (ICRC), in the hope of reducing the complications of LASIK flap. And 'particularly useful for patients with LASIK corneas are too thin.
