Cataract surgery

What is refractive surgery and laser?

Refractive surgery includes all surgical procedures and techniques used to repair vision problems in order to eliminate the need to wear an optical correction, such as glasses or contact lenses.

In the vast majority of cases, laser surgery is used. Laser refractive surgery can be used to treat vision problems such as myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and presbyopia. These refractive errors can result in blurred vision, both near and far.

This type of ophthalmologic surgery can be performed on all the most common ametropias. The vast majority of spectacle or contact lens wearers can therefore have refractive surgery.

Note that laser refractive surgery can only be performed on patients with stable correction. Preoperative examinations are also necessary to detect any contraindications to surgery.

How does it work?

Laser refractive surgery involves modifying the curvature of the cornea and correcting the eye’s refractive errors that cause vision problems.

The reliability and safety of this refractive laser surgery technique make it the most widely used method in the world to correct mild to moderate refractive errors.

Lazik is the most widely used refractive surgery technique for various types of visual disorders. It is an extra-ocular procedure that treats visual defects in a non-invasive manner.

PRK and SMILE are also available in some cases, especially for patients with thin or impact-prone corneas.

All techniques have a very good success rate. The choice of which method to use will therefore be up to your specialist, who will determine the most suitable solution for your problem.

Refractive surgery

Refractive surgery and laser summarized in a few steps

An initial consultation allows us to perform the necessary examinations and make a diagnosis.

During the first consultation, your specialist evaluates your ocular health and your current correction. He or she will also perform a complete eye exam in order to propose the type of surgery that is best suited to your situation.

Laser refractive surgery is performed on an outpatient basis. A local anesthetic is applied before the procedure to make it completely painless.

The operation is performed with a laser and lasts only about twenty minutes on average. The procedures performed are different depending on the method of refractive surgery used.

Post-operative treatment begins according to the recommendations of the specialist. It generally consists of antibiotic and anti-inflammatory eye drops that must be instilled daily.

One or more post-operative checks may be requested by the specialist. It is recommended to wear non-corrective sunglasses to avoid any glare due to the increased sensitization of the newly operated eyes.
