Millions of people on our planet suffer from various visual impairments. This leads to a significant deterioration in the quality of life, reduced work capacity and, in some cases, complete loss of vision.
For several decades the patients were forced to wear glasses or lenses all their life and constantly struggle with progressive deterioration of vision.
But scientific progress has given people the opportunity to permanently solve this problem. In such cases laser eye microsurgery comes to the rescue.
This method of correction of visual disturbances is still called excimer laser sight correction. Feedback on the method you can find at the end of the article.
Excimer laser correction is a minimally invasive surgical operation capable of permanently relieving a person from eye diseases
The operation is performed under local anesthesia using special drops. During the procedure, a laser programmed for a specific patient is controlled by an ophthalmologist from a special remote control.
A laser beam is aimed at the cornea and gives it a shape in which normal refraction is restored and the image is projected directly onto the retina.
The operation lasts no more than five minutes and does not require long rehabilitation. The next day a person can engage in activities related to the strain of the organs of vision.
The procedure is performed to relieve the patient from the need to constantly wear glasses or lenses, restore him the possibility of normal life and to stop the progressive deterioration of vision.
Usually vision is improved already on the next day after the transferred operation, and its full recovery occurs within six months. Most often the result is maintained throughout the life of the patient and a repeated correction is never required.
As stated above, the main indication for an excimer laser correction is any eye disease associated with refractive failure. These are:
|Myopia||From -1 to -15 diopters|
|Hypermetropia||From +1 to 6 diopters|
|Astigmatism||From 0.5 to 5 dioprids|
With all preoperative preparation and technology methods, nearly 100% of cases, the desired effect or significant improvement is achieved.
Despite the effectiveness and safety of the procedure, there are certain contraindications, in the presence of which the operation is strictly prohibited, as this can lead to serious complications.
Here are the main limitations for excimer laser correction:
There are also relative indications in which the method is used with caution:
Excimer laser correction is the most widely used method at the moment. Such a spread he received for his undoubted advantages:
The disadvantage of the method is:
Prices for excimer laser correction of vision vary. The cost depends on the region in which the operation is performed, from the clinic and regalia of the operating surgeon. Prices for the procedure start from 15 thousand for one eye and can reach 100 and sometimes even 200 thousand for the eye.
Most of the feedback left on the network is positive. The patients are glad that they finally managed to see the world in a new way without pain and prolonged rehabilitation. The only minus patients consider the cost of the procedure.
