Laser vision correction is the most gentle and effective method of getting rid of hyperopia, astigmatism, and myopia. Defects of vision are eliminated quickly and practically without consequences. And yet, before deciding on this serious operation, you need to understand for yourself all the advantages and disadvantages of laser vision correction. Location: Location:
Laser vision correction is often called non-contact surgery. Neither the doctor nor the instruments come into direct contact with the eye. Defects in vision are eliminated by a laser, which "vaporizes" certain areas on the cornea, while correcting vision. The high precision of the laser action on the cornea of the eye enables the doctor to perform the operation on both eyes at once. No seams, cuts or wounds remain.
After surgery, vision is fully restored in 96% of cases. The patient does not feel pain during the operation. As a rule, laser correction is performed under local anesthesia. And of course, the effect of this operation lasts for decades. Surgeons say that normal vision can remain in the patient now until the very old age.
Along with positive reviews and characteristics, laser vision correction has disadvantages. In particular, the laser disturbs the position of the cornea, which leads to the so-called microerrosion. This micro-erosion causes terrible painful sensations that should go away within a few hours. But for the complete restoration of the cornea, it may take 2-5 days.
The disadvantages of laser vision correction also include the existing contraindications of the method. It is not recommended to correct vision in this way for pregnant women, as well as for young mothers during lactation, patients who have serious inflammatory eye diseases.
In conclusion, it should be noted that laser vision correction is able to return patients to see with their own eyes. It is only important to carefully choose a clinic for the operation, undergo a preliminary examination of the cornea of the eye to identify defects and possible consequences, and also follow all the doctor's recommendations in the postoperative period.
