Laser surgery in the latest technologies

Added 27/10/2010

 As time goes by, more and more achievements are made in the rectifying of vision errors in glasses and laser surgeries. Of which, achievements in laser surgeries are much more obvious. Especially, these surgeries are much advanced than ever before and receivers can enjoy greater safety. However, all these surgeries can be fallen into different groups, so as to meet the demands of certain people.

If patients’ cornea is thick enough, they may choose to get intralase surgery. That’s to say, the laser will be used as scalpel and the whole procedure will be finished intra the cornea. Before the surgery, a flap will be made on the surface of the cornea and the flap will be positioned back after the surgery. This surgery is much advanced and accurate than traditional surgery, in which a blade will be used.

Patients with corneas different from others’ can choose advanced CustomeVue. It is highly individualized for certain patients. The whole procedure is specially designed and guaranteed in safety.

Another very special and advanced technology used in laser surgery is wavescan wave front technology. It offers great accuracy and precision.

If most eye surgeries are operated in two dimensional conditions, S4 technology makes three dimensional procedures possible. It allows the whole surgery can be finished under a three dimensional circumstance- this makes all steps precise and accurate. Especially, it can make sure only those improper part of the corneal tissues will be removed.

However, each laser surgery is only suitable for people with certain problems. If people want to know whether or not they are suitable for the surgery, they should first consult with their eye doctors who can give the best suggestions. Keep in mind, no 100% safety is guaranteed, though more and more achievements are made.
