Laser Eye Surgery Procedures Available At Optyco

There are a number of Laser Eye Surgery Procedures and Laser Eye Surgery Treatments available as detailed below:

LASIK (Laser-Assisted-In-Situ Keratomileusis) is currently one of the most frequently performed elective laser eye surgery procedures in the United Kingdom and worldwide. LASIK Eye Surgery is a highly effective outpatient laser eye treatment that is suitable for most low, moderate and higher prescriptions. LASIK Eye Surgery is performed by creating a U-shaped protective flap on the front surface of the eye.  A laser with a cool beam of light is used to gently reshape the front window of your eye (cornea).

LASEK (laser epithelial keratomileusis) is a laser eye surgery procedure that involves removing the top layer of the cornea before re-sculpting the cornea with the excimer laser. During LASEK Eye Surgery this top layer or ‘epithelial sheet’ is then replaced on the surface of the eye and a soft contact lens is applied as a ‘bandage’ for a few days following surgery. While not a common Laser Eye Surgery Treatment it may still be suitable for certain patients. Below details the difference between LASIK Eye Surgery and LASEK Eye Surgery.

What is the difference between LASIK and LASEK?
LASIK Eye Surgery involves creating a protective flap on the tissue, whereas LASEK Eye Surgery involves loosening the tissue with a medical solution and then carefully moving it to the side for the laser part of the procedure. After the laser procedure, the tissue is repositioned and the healing process begins.  During this healing process, the vision gradually and steadily improves. It is important to have all the information about Laser Eye Surgery Treatments before making this big decision.  Optyco believe in providing patients with all this information.

Why would I have LASEK over LASIK?
LASEK Eye Surgery is a great option for patients previously turned down for LASIK Eye Surgery treatment because of thin or unusually shaped corneas. It is also an option for patients involved in a lot of contact sport.  Imagine being able to play your favourite spot without glasses or contact lenses.
