					              Los Angeles Lasik – The Perfect Vision

Lasik or LASIK (Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis) is a surgical
procedure where a laser may be used to correct near-sightedness, far-
sightedness and astigmatism. The procedure is usually performed by an
ophthalmologist and may help in reshaping corneas to sharpen vision.
Although Los Angeles Lasik may be similar to PRK (photorefractive
keratectomy), its recovery time is much faster. Lasik Los Angeles is
advancement over radial keratotomy in the field of treatment of vision
problems and may be considered as an alternate to wearing eyeglasses
or contact lenses.

                                       A Lasik Los Angeles may help to
                                       achieve 20/20 vision or with
                                       severe problems, to improve the
                                       amount of vision. The procedure
                                       may be performed in less than
                                       10 minutes and the recovery
                                       may be less. Los Angeles Lasik
may be performed by a painless and quick laser incision that may
remove tiny bits within the eye to allow seeing finer images.

Even if Lasik Los Angeles doesn’t give 20/20 vision, it may improve the
eyesight to such an extent that the patient may decrease the
prescription they are using, or they may not use one at all. As it is a
serious procedure, the patient should consult a right eye surgery clinic
to get Los Angeles Lasik performed. Although the procedure may be
painless and quick, complications may be there if proper care is not
taken.

Only those people are considered to be suitable for Lasik Los Angeles
who is having mild to moderate refractive error such as myopia,
hyperopia, astigmatism, a combination of myopia and astigmatism or a
combination of hyperopia and astigmatism. Another criterion for Los
Angeles Lasik is the age factor. The patient should be of at least 21
years and should be free from diseases such as glaucoma, cataracts,
ocular herpes simplex, diabetes or any other disease that may affect
the cornea.

One may also not be considered by Lasik Los Angeles if they are
pregnant or experience unstable hormone levels. Moreover, people
suffering from AIDS, lupus and rheumatoid arthritis have compromised
immune system and may not be considered for Los Angeles Lasik. The
healing rate may also be affected in people using medications such as
retinoic acid and steroids.

The standard Los Angeles Lasik is the least expensive procedure. In this
procedure, the corneal flap is created with a mechanical
microkeratome. The cost of Lasik Los Angeles may depend on factors
such as
     Type of laser technology
     Type of surgical instrument used
     The expertise and experience of the surgeon
     The geographical location
