How long should I stay for LASEK In Iran?
Lasek is a laser-based surgery combined of Lasik and PRK (photorefractive keratectomy). This method is used for astigmatism, shortsightedness and farsightedness. The most important difference between Lasik and Lasek is in the focal effect point of excimer laser on the cornea. In the Lasik method, the laser hits the new spot on the cornea after removal of a corneal layer and then scraping is performed. However, in the Lasek method, the laser beams will hit the corneal surface without removal of the corneal layer and only after removal of the covering tissue of the cornea.

- Patients who are not suitable for Lasik surgery
The doctor will examine the eyes and measures the thickness of the cornea, eye pressure, pupil dilation and refraction in addition to the medical history of the patient and then makes the final decision whether the patient is a suitable candidate for surgery or not. Usage of the contact lenses must be stopped three days before the surgery.
During the surgery, eyelids and eye surrounding tissues are disinfected with a disinfecting agent. Desensitising and antibiotic drops are applied to the eyes, and the patient lies down under a microscope on the surgery bed. Eyelids are kept open utilising a particular gadget so that the patient won’t be able to blink. The eye will be washed with a serum. Cornea protecting layer is removed. The surgeon asks the patient to stare at the little red beam inside the microscope. The surgeon uses the excimer laser to correct, shortsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism.
Total anaesthesia or local desensitisation is used for Lasek surgery.
