LASIK surgery has definitely had an enormous impact on the treatment options that are available for individuals who need to correct their vision. So many people have benefited from it. However, there are some people who would like the benefits that come from LASIK surgery, but they are afraid of the surgeon using a bladed instrument. If you would like the benefits that come from a LASIK, but you do not like the idea of a blade being used, we invite you to learn about the advantages of bladeless LASIK surgery. This is a procedure that will use lasers in order to correct your vision.
The amazing thing about using laser treatments when it comes to correcting your vision is that they are able to treat different types of refractive errors. Some of the most common problems that are able to be treated with LASIK are farsightedness, nearsightedness, and astigmatisms.
One of the biggest advantages of bladeless surgery is that there is not the same risk of complications that exist with traditional surgery. Lasers tend to be more precise and provide a smaller margin of error than the more invasive alternative. It also requires less downtime than regular surgery, allowing you to get back to your daily routine.
How do you know if you are a good candidate for bladeless LASIK surgery? This is something that we would be very happy to discuss with you in person during a consultation. We will examine your eyes, look at the different vision problems that you are having, and then help to decide if LASIK is the right option to correct these issues. Then we will see if it is better for you to use bladeless surgery as opposed to traditional surgery. Once you are armed with all of this information, you will be able to make a solid decision.
