What is LASIK surgery?
Lasik surgery is a refractive surgery intended for the correction of many sight problems such as:
LASIK (laser assisted in Situ Keratomileusis) surgery is performed by an eye doctor who uses a low-power laser to permanently change the shape of the cornea, improving vision and reducing the need to wear glasses or contact lenses.
Currently, there are different surgical procedures to correct refractive errors.
Of all the possible options, the most used and recommended by ophthalmologists is the LASIK surgery, essentially for its great safety, efficiency, simplicity, comfort and absence of complications for the patient.
How to prepare for LASIK surgery ?
There are some necessary steps to take before every cosmetic surgery; some can be done with your doctor while others must be done by yourself.
You will meet with your doctor prior to the operation for a check-up appointment.
During this meeting the doctor will examine your eyes to make sure they are healthy and check your sight and the level of damage.
The doctor will also perform some other tests such as:
- Dry eye assessment.
- Glaucoma screening.
- Retinal examination.
- A measurement to your cornea and pupils.
The LASIK surgery must be done with extreme precision, and to insure that, the doctor will make sure that you don’t have any irregular astigmatism or conical cornea.
It’s advised that you prepare some days off after the operation so that you can allow you eyes to rest properly.
If you are wearing soft contact lenses, then you will have to stop using them 5 to 21 days before the surgery and for those who wear rigid contact lenses, they will have to stop using them for 6 weeks.
You must stop smoking and drinking for a period of time before the operation as they are proven to casue negative affects on you during and after the operation.
What happens during LASIK surgery ?
The doctor will use of a soft corneal suction ring to immobilize your eye.
There may be a small subconjunctival hemorrhage that subsides without requiring treatment after a week.
When suction increases, the patient’s vision becomes blurred.
Once the eye is immobilized, a corneal flap is obtained using a latest generation laser, called Excimer, which forms a series of bubbles very close to each other inside the cornea.
The operation is highly safe with the Excimer laser which has an automatic safety mechanism, called eye-tracker, which guarantees that the impacts are only carried out in the areas of the cornea which must be corrected.
And when the flap is folded back, the cornea is exposed. This procedure can be uncomfortable for the patient, but it is not painful.
What happens after the LASIK surgery ?
Generally, the discomfort is minimal, after all, it is an outpatient surgery, so it does not require hospitalization, the inconveniences are very rare and in a few days the patient can already lead a practically normal life.
Your doctor will give you a dose of antibiotics and anti-inflammatories in the form of eye drops during the weeks following the operation.
You should rest and stay away from bright lights; it’s also recommended that you wear dark glasses when you go out to protect your eyes from light.
Sometimes a mask or goggles is indicated to prevent you from rubbing your eyes while you sleep, thus preventing displacement of the corneal flap.
It is also necessary to moisten your eyes using lubricating drops and follow the instructions of your prescriptions.
What are the results of the LASIK surgery in Tunisia ?
Like the cataract operation, LASIK surgery is a technique that has been practiced for several decades, so that the professionals who perform it have acquired great experience, which, added to the significant technological improvements, allows the vast majority of patients obtain fully satisfactory visual improvement the day after the procedure.
LASIK thus eliminates the need to wear glasses or contact lenses.
You will start to see the difference after 4 to 5 hours from the time of the operation, and the final results will manifest after a couple of weeks.
What are the risks of LASIK surgery ?
With each and every cosmetic operation comes a risk factor that you must take into consideration.
With the help of our highly trained doctors, you will have the safest and most relaxing operation.
But it is important that you know the risks and potential complications of the LASIK operation so that you have a clear idea about it.
