Features of SCHWIND AMARIS Excimer Laser for refractive surg

The modern day LASIK surgery that we use at Optimal Vision utilises only laser for its procedure - no blade is used. The first laser is called femtosecond and it creates a very thin flap. The second laser is called an excimer laser and it corrects your prescription, this method allows for fast recovery and predictable outcomes, allowing doctors to correct higher prescriptions.

Just like other laser vision correction surgeries, LASIK is used to reshape the cornea of the eyes. All laser eye surgeries have re-shaping the cornea as their aim in order to allow the proper focusing of light onto the retina.

Preparation for the LASIK Surgery

Before LASIK is scheduled, you need to visit your ophthalmologist to discuss the procedure. During the initial consultation session, your medical history will be taken, and your eyes will be assessed.

Certain tests such as measurements of the corneal thickness, refraction, eye pressure, corneal mapping and pupil dilation will be carried out. Once the test results have been accepted by the ophthalmologist, an appointment can be scheduled for the LASIK procedure.

You will be asked not to wear your gas permeable contact lenses for at least 3 weeks before an eye assessment. For other types of contact lenses, you will have to avoid them for three days before the evaluation. You should also bring your glasses to the clinic so that your ophthalmologist can review your eye prescription.

On the day of your LASIK surgery, you should not eat a heavy meal. Take a light meal and use all your prescribed medications before heading to the clinic.

During The LASIK Eye Surgery Procedure

Before the procedure, anaesthetic eye drops will be instilled into the eye to numb it from pain. An instrument called femtosecond laser is used during the LASIK procedure to create a very thin flap in the cornea. The flap will then be lifted so that the underlying tissue of the cornea can be reshaped using the laser. Then the flap will be repositioned for faster recovery.

After The LASIK Surgery Procedure

You will probably feel some dryness in your eye after the procedure. Don’t worry as this is temporary. Your ophthalmologist will give you prescribed eye drops to prevent inflammation and infection, that will also moisturise your eye.

Your vision might be blurry or hazy for the first day after surgery, but your vision will improve a few days after surgery. Healing after LASIK is usually rapid.

You would be expected to visit your ophthalmologist within 24 to 48 hours after the procedure, for evaluation.
