Laser surgery is a type of procedure during which a state of the art laser is used to painlessly remove a tiny amount of eye tissue. Since human tissue is soft, the laser is used for a matter of minutes and the tissue is extracted without any bleeding. Thanks to the advancement in technology, laser surgery is now completely safe and the most popular elective surgery in the world. Laser surgery is frequently used to treat refractive and non-refractive eye conditions.
Laser eye surgery is ideal if you are affected by short sight, long sight or astigmatism.
Short-sightedness can range from mild, where treatment may not be required, to severe, where objects will appear blurry.
In the long term, long-sightedness, can significantly cause headaches and tiredness due to “over-focus” and lead to double vision.
Depending on the seriousness of the problem contact lenses or glasses can be worn but some people may find it less of a hassle to have laser eye surgery.
