Laser eye surgery and implantable lenses can help to correct eyesight problems and offer an alternative to wearing glasses or contact lenses.
Laser vision correction can reshape the surface of the eye in order to overcome problems with eyesight. Implantable contact lenses are a laser-free alternative, helping to correct long sight, short sight, and astigmatism.
Why might you need laser eye surgery and implantable lenses?
If you have eyesight problems and want to avoid wearing glasses or daily contact lenses, laser eye surgery or Visian implantable contact lenses can help to improve your vision.
What are the benefits of laser eye surgery and implantable lenses?
Vision problems can be a real issue, especially if your eyesight is getting worse over time.
Some of the benefits of surgery include:
During laser eye surgery, a laser is used to reshape the cornea and the surface of the eye. Different techniques, either LASIK or LASEK/PRK, will be used depending on your specific eyesight issue. Laser eye surgery can be used to treat long sight, short sight or astigmatism.
LASIK surgery is the most common type of laser eye surgery. It involves cutting across the cornea and raising a flap of tissue which is then reshaped using the laser before the flap is replaced. PRK is mainly used for correcting low prescriptions as the cornea is reshaped without the need to cut out the tissue flap. LASEK is similar to PRK but varies as the surface layer of the cornea is retained as a flap, which is thought to prevent complications and speed healing.
Implantable lenses are a laser-free alternative to correcting vision problems. The Visian implantable contact lens is designed to sit behind the pupil and can also correct short sight, long sight, and astigmatism.
Depending on the type of treatment you require, surgery should take less than an hour.
Specific complications include:
Treatment costs will vary depending on the type of procedure that you choose. Our full price options will be discussed with you during your initial consultation.
