LASIK is a modern microsurgical vision correction procedure using an excimer laser, which has been successfully performed for a number of years by specialists of Dr. Kurenkov’s Eye Center.
LASIK is the English acronym for “laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis”, which points to laser evaporation of the corneal tissue. This method allows changing the refractive power of the cornea and improving visual acuity.
Indications for LASIK:
This vision correction surgery is minimally invasive, bloodless and does not take much time (about 15 minutes). This makes LASIK suitable for a wide range of patients. The cost of LASIK is not high.
LASIK is a modification of photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), which was proposed in 1995 and was the first method of laser vision correction.
The principal difference between PRK and LASIK is that the surgeon does not leave a «valve» of the corneal tissues. This extends the period of recovery and limits the possibility of correction of refractive errors.
Advantages of LASIK as compared to PRK:
High-precision equipment used at the eye center enables high-quality preoperative diagnosis with modern methods to minimize the risk of possible complications.
