or Lasik (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis) is a type
of refractive laser eye surgery performed by ophthalmologists for
correcting myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. The procedure is
generally preferred to photorefractive keratectomy, PRK, (also called
ASA, Advanced Surface Ablation) because it requires less time for the
patient's recovery, and the patient feels less pain overall. However,
there are instances where a PRK/ASA procedure is medically justified as
being a better alternative to LASIK.
Many patients choose LASIK as an alternative to wearing corrective eyeglasses or contact lenses.
Solving a Lasik Post Op Problem
I had Lasik vision correction surgery two years ago, and am quite glad I did. I think that my Lasik story might be helpful to some that consider that they might not be a perfect Lasik client, and are concerned about side effects after the Lasik procedure. I did have a significant side effect after my Lasik operation, but have weathered it well, and still recommend the operation highly.
My operation went exactly as described, with no pain or real discomfort at all. My Lasik physician was clear, stating each step that he completed so that I would know the Lasik procedure was proceeding as expected, and more quickly than I had imagined. I know that all of the discussion I had earlier with the Lasik professionals stated the operation generally took less than twenty minutes, but I was still surprised.
At the end of the operation, my Lasik doctor replaced the flap to its correct position in my eye and covered it with some kind of clear goop. Even at that time I could notice a distinct improvement in my vision.
I was instructed to wear goggles over my eyes for five nights in order to prevent me rubbing my eyes while I was sleeping. I guess they assumed that any good Lasik patient would not do that when awake.
In addition, I followed all post-op Lasik procedure instruction to the letter. I slept immediately after the Lasik procedure was done (after I made it home, of course), used the eye drops religiously, and did not try to strain my eyes by reading everything that I could. I was amazed the immediate improvement in vision that Lasik makes, just as if there was a set of weightless contact lenses. Very impressive.
My biggest problem in Lasik procedure recovery was a result of epithelial erosion. The flap that is made in the eye during the Lasik procedure is made from epithelial cells. Once the flap is replaced at the end of the Lasik procedure, these cells start to regenerate in order to fill in the line where the flap has been cut.
this is normal post-op Lasik healing. However, in my case the cells
would grow fine, but at night my eyes tended to dry out when I was
asleep. So, when I woke up, my eyelid would pull up some of the new
cells from their place where they belonged, where if my eye was
sufficiently moist they would have stayed in place.
I told this to my Lasik physician, who said this side effect just makes healing a little longer and it was not a serious side effect. When I went for a check up to the Lasik center (which I highly recommend any time a Lasik client has any post-op worries or questions) they decided that I needed a thicker, more jelly like version of the eye drops to use at night. This worked well, and the rest of my post-Lasik recovery went well.
I am a strong advocate of the Lasik vision correction procedure. I also strongly suggest interviewing a number of positions, and do not put low cost as the highest priority. Your eyes are very important, and a highly competent Lasik physician is the most important factor.
