Lasik Eye Surgery is relatively new to South Africa and has become increasingly popular due to its significant success. It is one of the most effective refractive eye surgery procedures to date however there are also few risks associated with it. There are some concerns that you may need to consider before you say good bye to your contacts and hopefully not your eyes.
Lasik eye surgery is quick and safer than most conventional eye surgery procedures; all it basically involves is the removal of a small amount of corneal tissue of the eye generally found after a circular surgical incision is made on the cornea. The eye tissue is removed with a laser; the eye then regenerates itself after a few days, making it extremely precise and effective. The results are almost immediately, there have been many reported cases where patients could see clearly or without any difficulty almost immediately after the surgery. However, that is when everything goes right, things can go terribly wrong.Laser eye surgery procedure are not completely risk free, because the practice itself is relatively new, there is no telling what complications may arise in the future. Every time ilasik eye surgery patients undergo an operation, they are at risk of losing vision in one or even both their eyes.
The most common complaint of LASIK surgery is double vision and short sightedness but most of these issues can be resolved with continual use of eye drops or further surgery.
Thought it is might not guarantee 20/ 20 vision or completely cure cataract it is definitely a major improvement and a progressive step for effective corrective eye surgery.
