Understanding LASIK Surgery

What is LASIK?

The procedure is quick, typically lasting about 20 minutes for both eyes. It involves creating a thin flap in the cornea, then using a laser to reshape the cornea’s underlying tissue. The flap is then laid back in place, where it heals naturally without stitches.

Benefits of LASIK

  • Quick recovery time
  • Significant improvement in vision
  • Reduction or complete elimination of the need for glasses or contact lenses
  • Minimal discomfort

Potential Risks and How We Minimize Them

While LASIK is extremely safe, as with any surgical procedure, there are potential risks. At Burjeel, we minimize these through comprehensive pre-operative evaluations, using only the latest technology, and tailoring the procedure to each patient’s specific needs.

Are You a Candidate for LASIK?

  • At least 18 years of age
  • Stable vision for at least a year
  • Healthy corneas and overall eye health
  • Not pregnant or nursing

In addition to the general criteria mentioned earlier, our clinical team considers other factors that may affect your suitability for LASIK, such as:

  • The consistency of your refractive error.
  • History of previous eye surgery or conditions that might affect healing.

Pre-surgery Evaluation Process

Our thorough evaluation process ensures LASIK is the right option for you. This includes a detailed eye examination and discussions about your health history and vision goals.

The LASIK Procedure: Step-by-Step Clinical Details

Pre-Operative Assessment:

  • Detailed eye examination including corneal topography and pachymetry to measure corneal thickness.
  • Wavefront analysis to detect irregularities in the way the eye processes images.
  • Dilated eye exam to examine the internal structures of the eye.

During Surgery:

  • Application of numbing eye drops to ensure comfort.
  • Use of a femtosecond laser or a mechanical microkeratome to create a thin flap in the cornea.
  • Precise reshaping of the corneal stroma using an excimer laser based on pre-determined correction map.
  • The corneal flap is then repositioned without sutures, as it adheres naturally during the healing process.

Post-Operative Care:

  • Immediate postoperative assessment to check flap placement and initial visual acuity.
  • Prescription of antibiotic and anti-inflammatory eye drops to prevent infection and reduce swelling.
  • Several follow-up visits to monitor the healing process and ensure proper visual recovery.

Benefits of LASIK

  • Precision and Customization: LASIK involves creating a precise map of the eye, which means each procedure is customized to the patient’s specific refractive error.
  • Speed and Comfort: The surgery is quick, typically requiring only about 15 to 20 minutes for both eyes, with minimal discomfort during and after the procedure.
  • Rapid Visual Recovery: Many patients notice a significant improvement in their vision almost immediately after the surgery, with further enhancements as the eye heals.
