LASIK Overseas

LASIK (Laser Assisted In-situ Keratomileusis) is currently the best method of correction of refractive errors, nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. It is accurate, effective and safe. If you enjoy an active lifestyle, are self-conscious about wearing glasses or simply wish to wake up to a clearer world without the aid of eyeglasses, then LASIK could be your perfect solution for a brighter future.

Patient Selection

Is is extremely important to determine who is a suitable candidate for LASIK surgery. You must meet the basic criteria:

  • You are at least 18 years old
  • You have had a stable vision for at least one year
  • You must not be pregnant or have been breastfeeding in the last 3 months
  • You have no existing eye diseases such as; keratoconus, thin corneas, corneal inflammatory disease, herpetic keratitits and autoimmune diseases

Results

Results are generally very satisfactory and it has been reported that in carefully selected cases more than 90% ahcieve unaided visual acuity of 6/12 or better.

Complications & Side effects

Like any other medical procedure, there are side effects that may follow the procedure. How Laser Vision Correction has been performed for more than a decade and over that time the complication rate has proved to be very low with LASIK considered as on e of the safest and one of the most advanced surgeries in the world. The most common symptoms during the first few weeks after surgery are dry eyes; glare vision and halos. However these are temporary and do not interrupt your daily routine. The chances of complications happening are rare but can be as follows:

  • Under or over correction
  • Reduced contrast sensitivity
  • Glare
  • Atigmatism
  • Corneal perforation
  • Infection
  • Corneal ulceration and infiltration
