A solution for astigmatism, nearsightedness, or farsightedness is laser eye surgery (excimer laser). The requirement for contact lenses or glasses might be lessened or eliminated after the procedure.

When it comes to improving farsightedness, nearsightedness, and/or astigmatism, laser vision correction surgery is an extraordinarily successful procedure. Excimer has a satisfaction rate of around 95% among patients who have laser eye surgery globally.

Why is excimer laser used in eye surgery?

By eliminating tissue from the anterior cornea through a procedure known as photo ablative breakdown, the excimer-laser modifies the eye’s refractive state. In this method, the excimer lasers ultraviolet radiation is used to break apart chemical connections in the cornea without inflicting heat harm on the nearby tissue.

Light may be focused on the retina thanks to the changed anterior corneal surface. It lessens or eliminates the need for glasses and contact lenses. Discuss with your surgeon, they go into great length on every element of excimer laser refractive surgery. These include procedures, warning signs and disqualifying conditions, clinical results, and complications.
