Laser surgery improves vision and gives you complete freedom from spectacles and contact lenses. Laser eye surgery is one of the most popular elective procedure in the world. These procedures use extremely precise lasers to reshape the cornea. This is the best way to correct vision, because the shape of the cornea determines the way light enters the eye.
Laser eye surgery removes small, very precise amounts of corneal tissue to subtly adjust the way light enters the eye; it is a safe and painless way of transforming vision and takes only minutes.
Laser eye surgery is commonly used to treat both short-sightedness and long-sightedness. If your cornea is more curved than it should be, it bends (refracts) the light so that it focuses just in front of the cornea. This is known as short-sightedness, or myopia.
If the cornea is flatter than it should be, the light converges just behind the cornea, causing long-sightedness, or hyperopia.
Of course, there are many other conditions that can affect our vision – one of which is astigmatism. You may well have heard that astigmatism is not treatable by laser eye surgery. However, while some cases of astigmatism are more complicated than others, Ultimate Vision Lasik Centre has been successfully and safely treating patients with astigmatism for many years.
Many clinics resort to surgically implanted synthetic lenses to treat very high prescriptions. Ultimate Vision Lasik Clinic has pioneered safe methods for using laser eye surgery in such cases. Thanks largely to our uniquely comprehensive and accurate assessment tools we can treat very high prescriptions in complete confidence.
