Refractive Surgery - LASIK, Clear Lens Extraction

LASIK

Refractive surgery is term used to describe surgical procedures that correct common vision problems to reduce your dependence on glasses or contact lens.

Currently laser procedure called LASIK (laser-in-situ keratomileusis) is very popular surgery used to correct vision in many people.

Advantages of LASIK

  • Improved vision
  • Quick Results
  • Quick recovery
  • NO more glasses or Contact lens

How it is done on the day of procedure

At the beginning of the procedure,
the eye is anesthe with topical eyedrops.

The surgeon then uses a device called Femtosecond Laser to create a corneal flap on the outer layer of the eye.

After the flap has been created, an excimer laser is used to reshape the cornea.

The corneal flap is replaced.

The eye will heal by itself, and no stitches are necessary.

Clear Lens Extraction (CLE)

Clear Lens extraction (CLE), also called refractive lens exchange (RLE), is the removal of a non cataractous natural lens of the eye with or without intraocular lens placement as a refractive procedure.

Implantable Contact lens (ICL)

An implantable collamer lens (ICL) is an artificial lens that’s permanently implanted in the eye. The lens is used to treat: myopia, hyperopia

Implanting an ICL requires surgery. A surgeon places the lens between the eye’s natural lens and colored iris. The lens works the eye’s existing lens to bend (refract) light on the retina, which produces clearer vision.
