Bladeless LASIK eye surgery is the latest advancement in eye surgery to enhance and improve your vision. This short procedure of a few minutes brings back your eyesight with only a laser. The LASIK process has been improved over 25 years to become the most advanced bladeless LASIK eye surgery to give you the same great benefits in a less invasive manner. This also allows you to return to your daily schedule faster.
The bladeless technology enables our surgeon to customize the surgery of the cornea. Bladeless LASIK may allow some candidates who did not qualify for the traditional approach to the surgery, to now be eligible. LASIK eye surgery has a very high success rate for improving the sharpness of vision, although 20/20 vision cannot always be attained. This eye surgery is commonly used to treat astigmatism along with farsightedness and severe cases of nearsightedness. Patients who wear glasses or contact lenses are frequently candidates for LASIK eye surgery because the procedure can reduce their need for corrective lenses.
General health, age, and eye health are all important factors in determining if you are a potential candidate for LASIK eye surgery. Candidates must have one year of stable vision before surgery. The minimum age for LASIK is 18, and your general health must be good. Potential patients must not have any eye, retinal, corneal, or optic nerve diseases. These include lazy eye, muscle imbalances, and scarring from prior eye surgery. Patients should also be free of any injuries to the eye or eye infections.
Prior and post LASIK care should be discussed during your consultation to ensure you can successfully prepare, and know what to expect. The results of bladeless LASIK eye surgery are nothing short of an advanced technological breakthrough with the capability to change the lives of patients suffering from vision impairments.
