Why? Let’s find out.
There are lots of different types of laser vision correction, so when faced with so many options, how do you know what laser vision correction surgery is the best for you?
Laser vision correction has quite literally changed the way that we see the world, but with various different techniques available, deciding which is right for you may feel like a minefield. Here’s what you need to know about four of the most popular forms of laser vision correction, their benefits, and whether they may be suitable for you.
Bladeless LASIK is one of the newer types of laser vision corrections surgery. As you may have guessed from the name, unlike other varieties of laser eye surgery, this technique doesn’t involve the use of blades. Conventional LASIK is performed using microkeratome blades, which create the flap that is used to access the cornea for reshaping. Instead of using blades, in bladeless LASIK the flap is created by laser energy, provided by the femtosecond laser used to carry out the procedure. This laser is the ZEISS VisuMax.
If you are fed up with wearing glasses or contact lenses and the limitations that they place on your life, you may want to consider laser vision correction. Laser eye surgery has transformed the way in which vision can be corrected, giving patients the opportunity to see clearly with little to no reliance on glasses or contact lenses by permanently altering the shape of their cornea.
SMILE LASIK is arguably one of the most advanced laser vision correction techniques, and we are delighted to be able to offer SMILE LASIK in our Roslyn, New York office.
