Laser Floater Removal

Laser eye surgery has advanced dramatically over the last decade. Technological and scientific breakthroughs have led to a vast array of treatments, meaning many eyesight issues deemed unsuitable in the past can now be successfully remedied by cutting-edge laser vision correction. This means that ophthalmologists who specialize in the provision of laser eye surgery no longer have to disappoint many who would love to live a life without glasses or contacts.

In the majority of cases, they can now utilize a range of alternatives to best suit the individual’s situation.

The latest techniques can accurately correct vision problems arising from shortsightedness (myopia), longsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism, with each having very high levels of success (>95%). The advantages of laser eye treatment are many. For most people, a life free from (or much less dependent on) contact lenses and eyeglasses is a life-changing experience, allowing them to more easily lead an active lifestyle.

How Do I Know if I Need Laser Eye Surgery or Laser Vision Correction?

Laser treatment for eyes works by altering the curvature of the eye and focusing the power of the cornea to correct vision problems. Many people who’re suitable for such surgery already make use of contact lenses and/or eyeglasses. However, as vision naturally degrades as we age, with the most dramatic differences usually noticed after the age of 40, it might not be until after this time that you become a candidate for laser vision correction.

Laser eye surgery is commonly carried out on those who suffer from age-related vision issues. Other reasons you might need such treatment include:

  • Having a prescription for shortsightedness, longsightedness, and/or astigmatism.
  • Contact lens wearers who have difficulties with wearing contact lenses
  • Those who’ve been incorrectly diagnosed with having dry eyes and are therefore inaccurately deemed unsuitable for laser surgery.

While not every situation can be treated by laser eye surgery, the vast majority of common conditions can be. The more complex conditions are best approached by a specialist surgeon. Such individuals can offer the most advanced cutting-edge laser surgeries, many of which are designed to address vision conditions that, up until recently, were unable to be adequately serviced by laser vision surgery.

What Happens During Laser Eye Surgery?

There are different types of laser eye surgery. Depending on which is deemed most appropriate for your needs, the intricacies of the procedure will differ slightly. However, whichever treatment you undergo you can expect the following:

The procedure is carried out in the following manner:

  • Both eyes are often treated in a single session
  • The process takes around 30 minutes
  • Your eyes will be numbed before treatment using anesthetic eye drops
  • You will lie down during the procedure
  • Special spring clips will be fixed to the eyelid to allow you to blink safely during the procedure
  • You’ll be able to return home the same day

The range of laser treatment for eyes

  • LASIK (Laser in situ Keratomileusis): Used to treat nearsightedness and, on occasion, farsightedness, and astigmatism. A laser is used to remove very fine layers of tissue from the cornea to reshape the cornea.
  • SMILE (Small Incision Lenticule Extraction): Similar to LASIK but the thickness of tissue removal is slightly greater. It might also be removed from deeper into the cornea. The procedure is used to correct nearsightedness.
  • Surface Laser Treatments—PRK, LASEK & TransPRK: PRK stands for Photorefractive Keratectomy and all of the surface laser treatments remove a fine layer of tissue beneath the clear layer of the cornea. This then regrows, smoothing off as it does. This allows the eye to work at an optimal level. Such treatments are generally used for those with moderate nearsightedness, although in some cases it can be used to treat longsightedness and astigmatism.
