Refractive surgery is the term used to describe surgical procedures that correct common vision problems like nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia. This vision correction procedure will reduce your dependence on prescription eyeglasses and contact lenses. LASIK is the most popular refractive laser eye surgery performed in Dubai. Over the past 25 years, surgical techniques, tools, and procedures for vision correction have evolved rapidly. The ophthalmologists at Quirónsalud use laser techniques like Intralasik, iLasik and PRK/Lasek. Our Lasik eye specialist doctors will make a comprehensive review of your eye conditions before advising on the most appropriate procedure.

Why LASIK Surgery Is Right for You?

Before you decide to have LASIK surgery, visit one of our eye specialists at Quirónsalud to talk about whether or not it is the right procedure for you. LASIK eye surgery might not be the best option if your eye glasses or contact lens prescription is still changing. People with thin corneas or with certain medical conditions, such as dry eyes, might not be good candidates for LASIK surgery either.

IntraLase

IntraLase is a new state of the art laser treatment that prepares the LASIK corneal flap by using a femtosecond laser. Usually, LASIK treatments use a mechanical device called a microkeratome which uses a blade to produce the LASIK flap. IntraLase is a “no blade” procedure a flap which is much more precise in depth, is cleaner, more accurate and is thinner.
The surgical process for Intralasik uses the femtosecond laser, creating microscopic gas bubbles to slice through the tissue. People with naturally thick cornea can get benefited more from this procedure than traditional LASIK treatment

Benefits of IntraLase Treatment Flaps

The primary benefit is that all suitable prescriptions can now be treated with bladeless technology, thus eliminating the induced distortion and possibility of serious complications associated with the creation of the flap by the manual blade. More patients achieve 20:20 vision or better; fewer patients lose the sharpness of vision. Both short term and long-term safety are improved upon. Increased confidence for both the doctor and patient lessens stress and anxiety. Both mechanical breakdown and human error are reduced.

How is PRK performed?

Initially, your eye surgeon will remove a central area of the corneal epithelium with an alcohol solution or a blunt surgical instrument. After this process, an excimer laser is used to precisely reshape the curvature of your cornea’s surface. The laser is computer-controlled and highly specialized which delivers pulses of cool ultraviolet light that remove microscopic amounts of tissue with precision. Later, a soft contact lens bandage is placed on the cornea to protect the eye. New epithelial cells grow back in about four to five days, after which the ophthalmologist removes the bandage contact lens.


LASIK Treatment FAQ’s

Are LASIK and PRK safe procedures?

Can I have both eyes done at the same time?

Most surgeons perform a LASIK procedure on both eyes at the same time. It takes longer for clear vision after PRK so many surgeons will wait a week or two between eyes for PRK.

Does laser vision correction hurt?

Pregnant and nursing women cannot undergo the treatment until they come into the normal state. Apart from these, you need to have a comprehensive eye examination to check your corneal thickness and other requirements for successful completion.

The laser treatment takes less than a minute, but the entire procedure takes about 10 minutes.

Are there any side effects?

Most of the patients are able to see clearly by the first 24-48 hours after surgery. Your doctor will suggest the activities that you may require to refrain during the first few weeks. Further vision improvement can continue for several months.
