Though Lasik continues to be the most popular choice for correcting hyperopia and myopia, refractive surgery is a better alternative for those people suffering from abnormal corneaand severe refractive error. Refractive lens surgery could be phakic IOL implantation or clear lens extraction. Unlike PRK or Lasik, it can correct any level of visual acuity and hyperopia post-surgery and its results are better than other surgeries in case of high or moderate hyperopia.
Dealing with Myopia Cases
In case of patients with myopia, this surgery is conducted only if they aren’t suitable for any other sight improvement surgical treatment. As myopia patients have higher potential risk of retinal indifference during lens extraction, other surgical options should be determined at the earliest. Usually, it would cost double the Lasik cost and might not be included in the vision insurance.
Advancement in Latest Vision-Correction Methods
The older vision-correction methods offered only one main point-distance that allowed people to rely upon bifocals or reading glasses after the surgery. The recent progress in multifocal and accommodative technologyhave made it easy for people to read words on computer screens, newspaper, magazines, and bottles without bifocals or magnifying glasses, while being able to recognize things at a distance too. The advanced lenses, including Tecnis, Crystalens, and ReSTOR improve vision at all ranges, helping to better and maintain the vision as you age, which was never observed in the ophthalmology history.
Who Needs Refractive Lens Surgery?
The refractive lens surgery is often conducted on those people whose prescription falls beyond the curing range of either Lasek or Lasik operation. There are many benefits of opting for this treatment-
Patients can expect fast recovery post surgery; they can go home within a few hours after the surgery.However, they have to be careful and use prescribed eye drops and shouldn’t press or rub on eye. Patients can return to normal life, though they should avoid severe exercise oractivities in the first few weeks.
Yet another benefit of this surgery is that the treatment involves high prescriptions, whichare beyond the range of laser treatment. Patients should see the surgeon for 4 to 5 weeks after procedure to determine the need for glasses. The surgery is intended to ensure excellent unaided distance sight. It is possible for patients to use reading glasses, which does depend on the normal class of their vision.
Excellent Visual Outcome
The vision could be improved over one or two days and surgeons can determine the improvement or progress in the first week itself, offering any support or advice their patients require.
