What is LASIK?

LASIK is the name of the laser eye surgery operation in which the visual defects such as myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism are corrected with a special laser called excimer laser. The cornea layer in the outermost part of the eye is reshaped and the light is focused on the retina with a successful LASIK operation, as well as it provides a life independent of glasses and contact lenses.

Laser and microsurgery are combined in this method. During the operation, a piece of the transparent layer of the eye is removed, with an average of 160 microns (paper-thin), in the form of a lid hammer, by means of a special microkeratome for automatic lamellar keratomilieusis under the microscope. An excimer laser is applied to the bed of the transparent layer. The valve is put back into place.

What are the advantages of LASIK?

  • LASIK has no alternative, especially in high-grade eye defects. Myopia up to -14, myopic astigmatism up to -4.0 or mixed astigmatism up to 4, hyperopia up to +6 and hyperopia astigmatism up to +6 can be treated.
  • There is no pain during and after the surgery. No needles and narcosis are required for the procedure, and it takes a few minutes.
  • Both eyes of the patient can be operated together.
  • The patient can go home on foot and work the next day.

What are the disadvantages of LASIK?

  • It is a more difficult eye surgery and it requires additional equipment and sterile environment.
  • Although there are complications such as valve rupture and loss, valve fragmentation, very thin valve, very thick valve, foreign body under the valve, and irregular astigmatism, most of them can be eliminated without causing a serious deterioration in visual acuity.
