LASIK which stands for Laser in Situ Keratomileusis is helping many to get rid of the burden of spectacles. The underlying mechanism of this breakthrough technique involves usage of laser for reshaping the cornea.

LAISIK is used to correct both farsightedness (hyperopia) and nearsightedness (myopia).

Know LAISIK better by getting acquainted with the pros and cons of this one of a kind surgery.

 

 Pros

  • The best part of course, say no to glasses forever.
  • You are also spared of the irritation because of contacts.
  • This surgery works most of the time (more than 95%-98% of the patients are satisfied with restored vision).
  • The pain associated is almost nil or trivial.
  • A surgery without remnants of stitches! Isn’t it amazing?

 

Cons

  • Most patients need glasses for reading.
  • Undercorrection or overcorrection of vision.
  • Sometimes LAISIK induces astigmatism, causing blurring of vision.
  • There are chances of getting corneal abrasions.
  • There could be loss of vision for life, if the flap is not done precisely.

 

Every surgical procedure has its own repercussions. Yet we need to keep an eye on the rewards rather than the possible damage to be able to derive benefit from any surgical procedure.
