Many Different Vision Problems Corrected with the Help of Laser Vision Correction If you are tired of spending money on contact lens and glasses, spending time searching for your glasses, and relying on others to read for you when your glasses aren’t close by, then it is time to consider permanent options to correct your vision. When opting for laser vision correction Beverly Hills surgeons are able to correct several types of vision problems, such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatisms. Eyes naturally degenerate with age, and this is not always correctable with laser vision correction. Lasik surgery is a quick procedure, usually completed in 5 minutes or less. The patient remains awake during surgery and numbing eye drops are used so the patient doesn’t feel anything. Oral medication may be administered for anxiety prior to the procedure. Los Angeles eye surgeons generally uses one of three types of laser machines to complete the procedure. The WaveLight Allegretto System is the only laser designed for custom treatments. The WaveLight Allegretto System has also been proven to improve night vision, something that hasn’t been accomplished using other laser machines. The VISX 4 is produced by a company that has been around since the beginning of laser eye correction and has the widest FDA approval ratings. The LadarVision laser system is useful for correcting high aberration vision problems such as halos and glare. Using a marker the Los Angeles Lasik surgeon will make a small ink mark on the cornea where he will cut the flap on the cornea. A suction ring attaches the blade or laser to your cornea to prevent any eye movement. The patient will then be asked to look at a light, during which time the laser sends pulses of light to your cornea. This laser light is reshaping your cornea. One eye is operated on at a time, but the entire surgery is over very quickly. For patients in Los Angeles vision correction generally results in no pain, though some patients express mild discomfort. Patients usually report an immediate improvement to their vision. Some patients return to work the following day, but it is best to allow time for rest, as each person’s eyes react slightly differently to the procedure. It is very important to avoid rubbing or touching the eye. Though the risks are slim, it is possible to disconnect the corneal flap. Most patients don’t require glasses or contacts after the surgery, but it is possible for some people to still require reading glasses for seeing objects up close.
