Refractive surgery

Near-sightedness, far-sightedness and astigmatism are rectified by refractive surgery. Refractive operation options offer ways to correct patient vision beyond glasses and contacts. The most sophisticated LASIK technology our ophthalmologist from Dubai utilizes in order to treat any refractive errors.

Refractive eye surgery is a way of correcting vision problems like myopia, hypermetropia and astigmatism as an option to glasses and contact lenses.

Your doctor will conduct a full eye exam to guarantee your eyes are sufficiently healthy for the refractive operation. The ophthalmologist shall assess: cornea shape and thickness; refractive errors (myopia, astigmatic hypermetropy) as well as other diseases of the eye.
The most common form of laser refractive surgery is LASIK (Laser assisted in situ keratomileusis). A unique sort of ablating laser is used to accurately alter the shape of the cornea, the front most dome shape in your eye— to enhance your vision.

The laser application time is usually less than 1 minute for each eye and the whole operation takes about ten to fifteen minutes.

Intralasik

IntraLASIK uses a laser to produce a more precision flap without using a blade while a mechanical device is used for original flap development by standard LASIK. Each eye generally requires less than one minute for laser implementation, and the complete operation takes about ten to fifteen minutes.

Photo Refractive Keratectomy (PRK)

Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK) is a laser operation to correct nearsightedness and astigmatism in small to mild amount. PRK is a method for removing the superficial part of{ epithelium} of the outermost layer of the cornea. Then a laser is used to shape the corneal stromal bed at the bottom. PRK is the simplest and easiest laser refractive operation. For each eye, the laser application time is usually less than one minute and the whole procedure takes around fifteen minutes.

SMILE is an acronym for SMall Incision Lenticule Extraction

A femtosecond laser is used for the SMILE method to produce a lenticule, extracted whole by a tiny incision, without the use of an excimer laser. Results comparable to laser assisted in situ keratomileusis- (LASIK) have been recorded with outstanding results after surgery. For each eye, the laser application time is usually less than one minute and the whole procedure takes around 15 minutes.

Implantable Corrective Lenses, Phakic IOL

This is a 15-minute operation which enables patients to improve their sight immediately. The operation is generally performed stitchlessly, since the incision is self-sealing.
