What is laser vision correction?

Laser vision correction refers to a group of minimally invasive procedures that reshape the cornea with laser energy to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism, leaving patients with 20/20 vision or better after treatment.

These procedures are customised to provide the best possible results for each individual patient, allowing your surgeon to correct the very specific refractive errors that obscure your vision.

Benefits of laser eye surgery

Laser vision correction procedures help patients eliminate the need for eyeglasses and contact lenses, a costly and bothersome hassle that millions of people deal with every day. By reshaping the cornea, these procedures change the way that the eye focuses light, allowing you to enjoy clear vision. The key benefits include:

  • Improved vision
  • Eliminate the need for eyeglasses and contact lenses
  • Enhanced quality of life
  • Rapid recovery times
  • Minimal discomfort during and after the procedure
    High success rates

Am I a suitable candidate for laser eye surgery?

You are a suitable candidate for surgery if:

  • You have good vision with lenses or glasses
  • You are short-sighted
  • You have astigmatism
  • You’re over 21
  • You’ve had a stable prescription for over 12 months

What are the different types of laser eye surgery?

Laser eye surgery encompasses various procedures designed to correct refractive errors and improve vision. Among these, LASIK (Laser-Assisted In-Situ Keratomileusis) and SMILE (Small Incision Lenticule Extraction) are two of the most prominent techniques, each offering unique benefits and methodologies.

LASIK (Laser-Assisted In-Situ Keratomileusis)

LASIK surgery is a prevalent choice for vision correction, involving two main steps. Initially, a thin flap is created on the cornea with a femtosecond laser. Subsequently, an excimer laser reshapes the underlying corneal tissue to correct the refractive error.

The flap is then repositioned, aiding in quick healing. The LASIK procedure is favoured for its immediate vision improvement and swift recovery, making it an attractive option for many seeking freedom from glasses or contacts.

SMILE (Small Incision Lenticule Extraction)

SMILE is a modern, less invasive technique compared to LASIK. It uses a femtosecond laser to form a small lenticule within the cornea and a minor incision through which the lenticule is extracted.

This medical procedure reshapes the cornea and corrects vision without creating a large flap. SMILE’s minimal invasiveness appeals to those with specific corneal conditions or lifestyles that necessitate a rapid return to activities, offering a gentle recovery and robust outcomes.

FAQs

Not everyone is a suitable candidate for laser eye surgery. Those with certain medical conditions, unstable vision prescriptions, thin corneas, or dry eye syndrome may not be eligible. Pregnant or nursing women are also advised to postpone the procedure.

At Vision Clinic Sydney we do not believe one surgery is better than another. Both SMILE and LASIK laser eye surgery have advantages and potential complications. We prefer to evaluate our patients thoroughly and recommend the best surgery on an individual basis.

Laser eye surgery procedures are generally regarded as safe, but like all medical interventions, they come with potential risks. It’s crucial to acknowledge that there is a slight risk of infection and scarring, underscoring the importance of adhering to post-operative care, including eye drops, and attending follow-up appointments scheduled by your surgeon.

A laser eye surgery procedure is remarkably quick, often taking less than 30 minutes for both eyes. The actual use of the laser is usually completed in under a minute per eye. Despite the swift nature of the procedure, patients should plan for pre-surgery preparation and post-surgery recovery time at the clinic.

Cataract surgery is not traditionally categorised as a laser vision correction procedure like LASIK or SMILE. Instead, it involves the removal of the eye’s natural lens that has become opaque and its replacement with an artificial lens to restore clear vision. However, in some cases, femtosecond lasers are used to assist in cataract surgery, providing precision in lens removal and implantation.
