Vision correction operations
If you want to undergo a correction, the last information you need to know about this medical procedure:
Types of vision correction operations:
1- Refractive cornea (PRK)
In this type of vision correction, special laser beams are used to correct the shape of the cornea, and this process uses
the first types of laser vision correction operations that began since the emergence of the types that we will enumerate next.
It is worth noting here that this process:
This is a long time until the correction is completely displayed.
Their cost is not much different from other types.
May cause a year in the eye during the operation.
2- LASIK traditional (LASIK).
In the lasik traditional type , laser beams are usually placed directly on the eyeball
after making an incision in the cornea and removing the outer tissue
and folding it to expose the underlying tissues and highlight them.
LASIK surgery is suitable for people who want to correct problems of long-sightedness or short-sightedness or the problem of astigmatism in general.
3- SMILE technology
In this modern technique of vision correction, laser beams are used to do the correction
without the need to make any incisions in the eye tissues,
which reduces the chances of any unpleasant symptoms appearing after the operation.
Smile technology is suitable for people who suffer from nearsightedness, is also excellent and is an ideal choice for those who suffer from persistent dry eyes.
It is worth noting here that the recovery period from the process of correcting vision of this type may take longer than that needed by LASIK, for example.
