LASEK (Laser epithelial keratomileusis) is a type of refractive surgery to correct myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism. LASEK combines certain methods from both LASIK and PRK.
Overview of lasek
Like LASIK and other types of laser eye surgery, LASEK works by reshaping the cornea, allowing light entering the eye to be properly focused onto the retina for clear vision. It helps people to have an even more beautiful, shiny face by getting rid of all kinds of glasses and its side effects on face.
LASEK Recommended For:
- Patients with up to -11.00 diopters of nearsightedness, up to +5.00 of farsightedness and up to 5.00 of astigmatism.
- Persons looking to get rid of the continual cost and side effects involved in glasses and contact lens use.
- Athletes who require the freedom offered by refractive surgery.
Before LASEK eye surgery, a patient will meet with an eye doctor to go through medical history taking and eyes will be thoroughly examined; Likely initial tests include measuring corneal thickness, refraction, corneal mapping, eye pressure, and pupil dilation will be done.
The LASEK procedure involves a little of both LASIK and PRK. Like in PRK, the corneal epithelium is separated from the underlying stromal layer. But instead of completely removing and discarding this tissue, as in PRK, the LASEK surgeon pushes an ultra-thin “flap” of epithelium off to one side of the cornea, where it remains attached to the eye (like the thicker flap of corneal tissue created during LASIK surgery).
Most of the time, the doctor will apply a bandage contact lens after surgery. Patients will wear it for the first 5 to 7 days to let the surface of the eye to heal. Patients will have to see an eye doctor with their medical records at least a few times during the next six months. The first visit is usually one day after surgery.
