What is the Most Common Type of Laser Eye Surgery?

LASIK eye surgery is the most well-known and widely performed laser refractive surgery to correct vision problems. It is an alternative to eyeglasses or contact lenses, and there are many types of laser eye surgery available (LASIK, PRK, ASA, LASEK, Epi-LASIK, LBV, SMILE, PTK, YAG, SLT, PRP). As no two eyes are the same, the treatment recommended by an eye surgeon may vary from person to person. SBK Advanced LASIK is the most advanced form of laser vision correction surgery.

It can treat common visual conditions such as farsightedness, myopia and astigmatism. Also known as PRK, advanced superficial ablation remodels the cornea to correct vision. The key difference between this and SBK's advanced LASIK is that a corneal flap is not created by the surgeon. Instead, the outer layer of the cornea is removed and then the laser is applied directly to it.

This type of laser eye surgery can be a great alternative to LASIK if you have limited corneal thickness, scarring caused by contact lenses, previous eye surgery or specific occupational or recreational needs. Laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis (LASIK) is the most commonly recommended type of laser eye surgery. It is the most popular elective surgery in North America and can be used to treat myopia (myopia), farsightedness (farsightedness) and astigmatism. It is estimated that more than 50 million procedures have been performed worldwide and up to one in thirty people in developed countries have already undergone this procedure.

Since its introduction in 1995, patient outcomes with laser eye surgery have improved significantly. Presbymax is a sophisticated laser eye surgery procedure that is only available on the Schwind Amaris 1050RS laser platform. This procedure extends the depth of focus in the non-dominant eye by precisely adjusting its optics. In myopia, it flattens the curvature of the cornea and in hyperopia it empties it.

It is used when eye drops don't lower eye pressure enough or cause significant side effects. Once the laser treatment is complete, the epithelial tissue on the surface of the eye is repositioned to cover the area where the laser was applied and a bandaged contact lens is placed on the eye to keep it in place while it heals. After this process has been completed, cycloplegic refraction will need to be done before you are referred to a laser center for surgery. Laser eye surgery usually corrects myopia (myopia), hyperopia, astigmatism and problems with reading vision (presbyopia). It has become increasingly popular over recent years due to its effectiveness and safety record.
