Tired of those glasses and want to get rid of them somewhere that will take care of your needs and give your eyes the quality they deserve?
You are in the right place.
Lasers are cool to mess with your pet with, but laser can also be very cool because a beam of which at the right intensity can cure your nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia) and astigmatism by reshaping your cornea. This type of surgery is called refractive surgery, and it takes in the hands of Tour for Cure experts from only a couple of seconds to a few minutes. It is a great way to save the money you spend on glasses or the time you waste putting on your lenses every day.
The first step is to determine your eligibility for one of the refractive surgery types (see below). And don’t worry if you are not fit for laser surgery; you might be a perfect match for a lens implant. Eligibility is determined during an examination of your eyes and your medical history, and then, if you are good to go, further tests are done to map your cornea and define the parameters of the surgery.
After the examination and the preparations, our experts will guide you to choosing one of the laser surgeries described below and prepare you for the surgery to be performed on the next day and give you some instructions to ensure the safety of the FDA-approved procedure (that is totally painless thanks to the inventor of anesthetic eye drops).
After the surgery, our professionals will give you some hints on how to care for your newly-acquired visual acuity and your eyes for the next few days after surgery and then send you on to enjoy your fresh, HD life.
Laser assisted in-situ keratomileusis, or simply LASIK, is the most famous, most studied type of laser eye surgery—with 32 million success stories. During LASIK, the surgeon uses computer-directed high-tech laser beams to open a thin flap on the upper corneal surface and correct your sight issues by changing the focusing power of your cornea. What really makes this procedure stand out is how fast and painless it is and also that it doesn’t require any stitches and can be operated upon again if your eye growth necessitates it.
If your ophthalmologist finds your eyes too dry or your corneas too thin for a LASIK, Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK) may be a great alternative for you as it doesn’t involve the creation of a flap as the laser directly operates on the external surface of the eye after the removal of only the very thin epithelial layer. Laser Epithelial Keratomileusis (LASEK) is a variation on the default PRK which preserves the epithelial layer and replaces it.
Like the PRK and LASEK, this technology (Small Incision Lenticule Extraction) is most suitable for thin corneas, as it doesn’t need the creation of a flap. It is a new method with proven faster recovery, and its real benefit is that it can fix visual errors that were not previously fixed using older techniques. It also has a higher safety factor, and many of the previous possible complications can be readily surpassed.
