Well Wisher
HI Ash,
Laser eye surgery is a surgical procedure used to correct myopia [near sighted vision], astigmatism and hyperopia, [farsighted vision]. In the laser eye surgery procedure the cornea is operated and the surgery procedure takes only few minutes, depending upon the present state of health of your eye(s). In the laser eye surgery procedure an intense, high quality and high precision ray of light through a microscope is used. It is called the Excimer which is used to carve the corneal tissues of the eye in order to help the light rays to get refracted correctly and fall precisely on the retina of the eye.
Information you need to know on Laser Eye Surgery

Like every other surgery, the laser eye surgery is also not for everyone. While it can assist the greater section of people who have troubles with their eye sight, there are few people for whom laser eye surgery procedure cannot be used to correct their visions. In order to confirm whether you belong to the greater segment of people for whom the laser eye surgery procedure can help, you need to consult your laser eye surgeon to find out exactly what is wrong with your eyes and whether the vision could be corrected using this eye surgery procedure.

The other important thing in eye laser surgery that you should know is, this method of eye surgery is not performed on anyone until the ‘eye degree’ of the individual has stopped varying. Often, as we grow older, our eyes achieve a state from where they can not get worse all of a sudden & normally this state is maintained for quite some time. At this point of time you can undergo laser eye surgery procedure which suits you best. It allows you to see normally again without the use of contact lens or spectacles. A note of caution is, If you have the laser eye surgery procedure done on you yourself before the ‘eye degrees’ have stopped changing (especially in cases of astigmatism) then the vision may continue to get worse even after the eye surgery and after a period of time you may notice that you are unable to see clearly and need to go back to either contact lens or glasses. So, understanding your ‘suitability’ for laser eye surgery is a very important factor which your laser eye surgeon can guide you through.
