The laser operation for myopia consists of lessening the curve of the cornea. The techniques used for this surgery are Femtosecond Lasik, and in certain cases photorefractive keratectomy (PRK). A myopic eye is an eye that is slightly too long, with the image forming in front of the retina. A myopic person’s far sight is blurry. The surgical technique allows for treatment of myopia of up to approximately 10 diopters.

Methods

The appropriate surgical technique will be discussed with your surgeon according to the specific structure of your cornea during preoperative testing. specific structure of your cornea during preoperative testing. Each of the two phases lasts about 2 minutes and is completely painless.

Technology Lasik Femtosecond

The Lasik and Femtosecond Lasik techniques consist of creating a thin corneal flap (phase 1). The flap is lifted and excimer laser treatment is then performed (phase 2). The curve of the cornea is modified. Femtosecond Lasik is the latest generation “all laser” technique which uses a laser for creating the corneal flap, whereas Lasik used a blade.

Technology PRK

The PRK technique consists of scraping the surface layer of the cornea (epithelium) (phase 1). Once the epithelium has been scraped, excimer laser treatment is performed (phase 2) and the curve of the cornea is modified. A protective lens is then applied and worn for 3 days.

Combined optical defects

Some defects may be combined. The techniques and combinations will be discussed during the preoperative consultation with the surgeon.
