Lasik and Lasek Surgeries
With the Excimer Laser device, there are corneal refractive errors in the eye; Treatment of eye disorders such as hyperopia, myopia and astigmatism is performed with a completely computer-controlled state-of-the-art system.
There are many methods used in excimer laser treatment and correction of visual impairments. In this article, we will talk about what are the differences between lasik or lasek, which are two of these methods.
What is Lasik?
It is the correction of the number by removing a thin layer with laser without blade from the front part of the cornea with Lasik technique and applying Excimer laser to the bottom.
Lasik technique corrects myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism in the eye. A balancing of the number in your eyes after lasik occurs quickly and the return to old number is very low. There is no problem in the operation of both eyes. The patient can be discharged by performing it during the day. Patients who have surgery with the Lasek technique can return to their daily routines within 24 hours.
What is Lasek?
Lasek technique is the Excimer Laser process applied without removing the thin layer in front of the horn.
It is frequently applied when the corneal structure is not suitable for being lasik.
Why Lasik Surgery?
Contrary to fear, Lasik surgery takes quite short time. The total time determined is 15 minutes. The application time of the laser takes 20 seconds. Laser surgery is the most applied laser surgery in the world. Operations are carried out with the latest technology laser devices.
As a result of the operation, these uses of patients who wear glasses and lenses end and a more free life awaits them. This operation is used worldwide as an effective and safe method in the treatment of refractive errors such as astigmatism, hyperopia and myopia. There is no anatomical change in your eye after surgery.
The Difference Between Lasik and Lasek
It is a method used in the treatment of Lasek due to the thin layer of the eyes of the patient who will undergo surgery. This may not be a single criterion. If desired, the patient can be applied lasik, and the patient can be treated with lasek. After the operation, a few days of clear and numberless contact lenses are worn on the eye for protection against the surface of the cornea. The net vision process is a longer process than Lasik and may take up to 4-5 weeks. He may have eye pain for 2-3 days after the operation. The reason is that it completes the healing process in epithelial tissue. The patient does not hear any pain during the operation. As in the Lasik method, it is anesthetized only with drops.
