Lasik Eye Surgery
LASIK - a type of refractive laser eye surgery is performed by ophthalmologists for correcting myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. LASIK is somewhat similar to other surgical vision corrective procedures such as photorefractive keratectomy. Patients choose LASIK as an alternative to wearing corrective eyeglasses or contact lenses. There are various kinds of Lasik Eye Surgery- iLasik or IntraLasik, PRK, Epi-LASIK being the most common refractive eye surgeries. The increasing demand of Lasik Eye Surgery has over the years decreased the cost of this surgery.

Different Eye conditions require different types of treatment

Myopia
In this procedure the central peak of the cornea has to be flattened in order to reduce short-sightedness and improve vision.

Hypermetropia
In this the central peak of the cornea has to be made steeper in order to improve vision and the laser is applied to the edges of the cornea.

Astigmatism
In this condition the cornea is not evenly curved and the laser is applied more linear to improve vision.

Non-laser refractive procedures
This is a process of inserting artificial lenses into the eye resulting in low heat radio waves that reshape the eye.

Cataract Eye Surgery
The success of this process has been estimated to be almost 99% and hence is also the most popular. In cataract surgery the patient's cloudy natural lens is surgically removed and then replaced with a synthetic lens to restore the lens's transparency and functioning.

Vitreo-retinal surgery
Vitreo-retinal surgery includes Vitrectomy. Anterior vitrectomy is the procedure of removing the front portion of vitreous tissue in the eye. This procedure is used for preventing or treating condition of vitreous loss during cataract or corneal surgery. Pars plana vitrectomy or trans pars plana vitrectomy is a surgery to remove vitreous opacity and membranes through a pars plana incision. This is often combined with other kinds of intraocular procedures for the treatment of retinal tears and retinal detachments. Laser photocoagulation or photocoagulation therapy using laser is also often used to seal a retinal tear.

Glaucoma surgery
Glaucoma is condition affecting the optic nerve that can lead to vision loss. This is often accompanied with heightened intraocular pressure (IOP). There are different kinds of glaucoma surgery and variations of these facilitate the escape of excess aqueous humor from the eye to decrease the intra-ocular pressure. There are also a few kinds that lower IOP by reduing the production of aqueous humor.

There is certainly a lot of information on laser eye surgery hence it is crucial that you understand your requirement well before making the final decision.
