If your eyes experience refractive errors like farsightedness, nearsightedness, and astigmatism, eye surgical procedures can often be a feasible choice.
Most Eyes correction surgery [แก้ตา, which is the term in Thai], normally executed by an ophthalmologist, alter the curvature of your cornea to enhance your vision. Not everyone is a great prospect for surgical treatment. Your ophthalmologist is going to evaluate the eyes and health and wellness to recommend which of these readily available treatments might be right for you.
- Laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis or LASIK
LASIK is the most prominent and most generally executed, refractive surgical treatment. During LASIK surgery, the eye doctor makes a slim, circular hinged cut in your cornea, creating a flap. Then he or she utilizes a sort of laser that does not generate heat, called an excimer laser, to remove layers from the facility of your cornea to flatten its domed form if you are myopic, steepen the dome if you are farsighted, or smooth the dome for astigmatism. The cosmetic surgeon, after that, repositions the corneal flap.
- Laser-assisted subepithelial keratomileusis or LASEK
LASEK differs with LASIK in way that the surgeon is not creating a flap in the cornea itself but only in the cornea’s slim safety cover known as the epithelium. The following step is similar to laser procedure used in LASIK to squash or steepens the curves of the cornea. The surgeon finishes by rearranging the epithelial flap. You will use a bandage call lens for a number of days after the procedure to urge healing.
- Photorefractive keratectomy or PRK
PRK was the initial sort of surgical procedure established to fix refractive mistakes. This surgical procedure is still usual, though not as prominent as LASIK, partly due to the fact that PRK has a longer recovery time. In PRK, the doctor entirely eliminates the epithelium, which will expand back as well as comply with the new form of your cornea. Otherwise, the procedure, consisting of the cost, is similar to LASIK as well as LASEK.
Epi-LASIK is a just recently established procedure that’s somewhat of a cross between LASIK as well as LASEK, with some differences created to resolve some of the problems connected with that other treatment. The price resembles LASIK and LASEK.
