Lasik eye surgery los angeles

The term LASIK which implies Laser in-situ keratomileusis, is one of the most trending practices of surgery which aims to modify the surface of the cornea with the help of laser so that all abnormalities which are responsible for impairing your vision are removed. The frontal section of the eyeball or the white section of the eye which surrounds the iris is referred to as cornea. Lasik eye surgery los angeles with Dr.Khanna can cure an array of eye problems like myopia or nearsightedness, Astigmatism and hyperopia or far sightedness. However it doesn’t work for patients of presbyopia which requires the patient to use reading glasses, unless they opt for mono vision lasik. A Lasik surgery involves the reshaping of the cornea of our eye so that the light passing through it can be focused properly on the retina which is located in the back.

The term Lasik or Laser In Situ Keratomileusis means a reshaping of the cornea from inside. This is what happens in course of a lasik eye surgery los angeles when the cornea is modified and reshaped with the help of a highly sophisticated Excimer Laser. In order to make the cornea less steep the laser is used to vaporize little parts of the tissues of the cornea. As a result the rays of light will focus directly on your retina so that your vision is clear and perfect. With the help of a Lasik eye surgery one can greatly improve his vision without requiring the aid of a glass or a contact lens. It is common knowledge that the eye cannot be lengthened or shortened. Therefore doctors resort to modify and alter the focussing capability of our eyes. It functions just like the principles of a camera where lenses can be added or removed to improve the picture quality. A similar effect is produced by lasik eye surgery los angeles where laser helps in changing the shape of the frontal part known as cornea and by correcting all the refractive errors. Before commencing the surgery your doctor will remove all microscopic irregularity which might be present in the eye and which is responsible for your impaired vision with the help of the latest technology known as Wavefront Diagnosis.

Femtosecond laser or Microkeratome is a  tool for surgery which is used by your eye surgeon to make a circular and thin flap on your cornea. The flap is then folded back by the surgeon so that the stroma or the underlying cornea can be accessed and parts of the tissues of the cornea are then removed with the help of the excimer laser. This highly sophisticated laser emits an ultraviolet beam of ray which is responsible for removing the tiny amount of corneal tissues so that your cornea is reshaped and so that light is properly focussed on your retina for enhanced vision. Astigmatism can also be corrected by excimer lasers when a rough or irregular cornea is smoothed out to give it a more normal shape. More than 96% of patients have reported that they got their vision back after a Lasik. Moreover this kind of surgery doesn’t involve much pain since numbing drops are used before commencing the surgery and no stitches or bandages are required post surgery.
