Wavefront LASIK

Existing Visual defects can be successfully corrected with eye laser treatment. The result is a sharp vision without glasses or contact lenses. When an existing Ametropia such as myopia or hyperopia, the incoming rays of light are not exactly projected onto the retina (retina). Instead, beams are broken through the eye, that they fall either before or behind the retina. The result is a blurred vision. Patients with a vision of either glasses or contacts, but must take to compensate for the refractive error. As a third alternative, a correction by means of laser surgery in question comes.

Eye laser surgery the cornea to a certain extent being removed, to alter the refractive behavior of the apparatus of the eye in this way. The so-called LASIK surgery is outpatient refractive surgical intervention, which total approximately takes fifteen to twenty minutes for both eyes. More than 20 years, patients are treated with a vision with the laser eye. One of the first procedures was the so-called PRK method. In this technique, the superficial layer with a mini Planer is removed first. The uppermost layer of the cornea is of the corneal epithelium. Then, corneal tissue is removed with the excimer laser.

After performing the PRK eye laser surgery the epithelium must disappear completely, which may take about a week. At this time, it is to be expected with an increased wound pain. Another disadvantage of PRK method is the fact that perfect vision is only sometimes reached weeks after 4-6. In the first few weeks after surgery, it may cause fluctuations of vision. In the modern Femto LASIK, an extremely thin so-called Hornhautflap is cut with the help of the ultra fast Femto second laser inside of the cornea. So, the corneal epithelium is not affected. After the creation of the corneal flap the flap is flipped by the doctor to the page. Then method is the same as in PRK the laser with the excimer laser, which corrected the vision by ablation of the cornea. Then the flap is folded back again and sucks due to the natural function of the pump immediately set in. The flap is even blinzeln fixed after a few minutes. After the LASIK surgery eye laser specialist controls the success of the operation and prescribes the patient both antibiotic and cortisone-containing transplanting of eye, to prevent a possible infection or inflammation. These drops may no longer than two weeks are conquered. In addition, the eye doctor recommends the use of artificial eye tears, to relieve the symptoms of dry eyes, which is a typical symptom after LASIK surgery. “When the Femto LASIK is combined with the modern Wavefront technology, also called the so-called iLasik, where i” stands for individual. The iLasik the LASIK surgery on the basis of the individual profile of ablation is removed the cornea while. The Wavefront LASIK to improve night vision and contrast sharpness during the day. Meanwhile, eye laser treatment can be performed in any larger eye clinic, provided that appropriate technological infrastructure is in place. The price for the modern Femto LASIK and iLasik is still quite expensive in Germany. For this reason, it attracts many visually patients to Istanbul at an attractive price to treat.
