Today, several modern approaches to corrective eye surgery range from laser reshaping of the eye’s surface in procedures such as LASIK and PRK to surgical insertion of artificial lenses to correct eyesight.
In LASIK, PRK, and similar procedures, laser energy reshapes the curvature of the eye’s clear front surface (cornea) to alter the way light rays enter the eye.
Artificial lenses surgically inserted into the eye also can refocus light rays to sharpen vision.
Laser eye surgery is used to treat common vision problems such as long sightedness, short sightedness and astigmatism frequently allowing permanently to make an end on the need to wear glasses or contact lenses for distance vision. Today, laser eye surgery has become one of the most commonly performed surgeries worldwide and the accuracy of its results is striking.
Since 1973, the year of the creation of Radial Keratotomy the first kind laser eye surgery ever performed, laser eye techniques have improved enormously.
The laser eye surgery procedure is carried out relatively quickly. Depending on the harshness of the condition, each eye usually takes just five to ten minutes to treat. Also, the speediness which accompanies the recovery period is spectacular and the procedure is painless.
