Everything You Need To Know About Laser Eye Surgery

A lot of people today rely on either glasses or contact lenses to help them see properly. Have you ever wished that you could see clearly, without having to wear glasses that you have to keep track of, or contacts that require a lot of special care and can be difficult to wear comfortably? Today, there is a type of technology that can enable you to see clearly, without having to depend on the aid of glasses or contacts. The answer is laser eye surgery, which has positively changed the lives of many people who used to have vision problems.

What Is Laser Eye Surgery?

In laser eye surgery, a very small, but precise, laser is used to reshape the cornea. The cornea is the clear part of the eye and it reflects the images of what you see onto the retina. The laser pulses with ultraviolet light, carefully removing minutely thin layers of cells and tissue to reshape the cornea and correct whatever vision problem you have. This procedure requires you to lay completely still on your back and keep your eyes fixed in one place, but it is also a painless and relatively quick surgery.

Am I Eligible For Laser Eye Surgery?

Although laser eye surgery is a wonderful procedure that has corrected the eyesight of many people, if it is used improperly, it will only serve to worsen your existing condition. Before you can get laser eye surgery, eye specialists need to make a thorough examination of your eyes and medical history. Starting a few weeks before your consultation, it is imperative that you stop wearing your contact lenses. If you are the right age, have none of the interfering health problems and if your eyes are healthy except for your vision problem, then you are most likely a good candidate for laser surgery!
