Are you one of the persons who want to recover your eyesight without the help of eyeglasses, and to have a clear vision as a normal person? If you are, here is effective method that is able to reshape your eyes—-the LASIK Eye Surgery, also called Photo Refractive Keratectomy (PRK). It is a simple procedure with the application of laser technology. Since its inception in the 1980′s, the PRK is favored by most people although at the beginning it was a little bit expensive but now a cost between $1000 and $3000 is enough. One of the reasons that make PRK popular is that the patients feels little or even no discomfort.
And then how does a LASIK eye surgery proceed? Normally, the surgeon will firstly remove the epithelium, a thin, transparent protective layer over the cornea, by which way the corneal tissue is exposed. Then the surgeon begins to reshape the tissue by the pre-programmed laser which costs only a few seconds. Moreover, during the operation the patient is able to communicate with the surgeon and answer questions. If they feel not quite the thing, they can tell the surgeons immediately which greatly improve the efficiency of the surgery. At last a kind of special contact lenses is used to protect the eyes.
Usually, one is able to recover from it for 5-7 days, however, in order to make things the best, the surgeon will advise all patients to have eye rest for at least a week and a frequent visit to the surgeon is required at different stages in case of the emergence of sequel. In addition, certain medication is also advised to take in the following one to two weeks after the surgery.
At last, several points should be kept in mind before you are intent to have a LASIK eye surgery.
