                                    Unsure About LASIK? Alternatives to LASIK Surgery
                                                        By Nicola Kennedy



   It’s true that LASIK is one of the most prevalent types of eye surgery. However, a few people are
either not comfortable with, or not suitable for LASIK surgery due to inadequate thickness of the
corneal tissue. There are several alternatives to LASIK surgery, each possessing certain
characteristics that make it more appropriate in a particular situation. The procedures may be different,
but the key intent is to correct the vision. The following are a few of the major alternatives to LASIK
surgery.

LASEK (Laser-Assisted Sub-Epithelial Keratomiluesis) is a recent addition to the refractive surgery
catalog. As noted above, the density of the corneal tissue is inadequate in some patients, and hence,
LASIK is not a possible option for them. In such a scenario, procedures like LASEK or PRK
(Photo-Refractive Keratectomy) can be viable alternatives. These procedures produce the same
results but require less tissue removal when compared with the LASIK procedure. That is, a thinner
flap is cut in the corneal tissue.

Intraocular Lens Implant – In essence, this surgery is the same as cataract extraction with placement
of a clear intraocular lens. The natural lens, the one having a refractive error, is extracted and replaced
with a clear lens that provides clearer vision. This procedure is especially beneficial if the patient is
suffering from hypermetropia (farsightedness) and that too with a high refractive error.

Spectacles or Contact Lenses – Glasses and contact lenses have been a popular choice for many
years now. They are an affordable alternative to LASIK surgery. Spectacles or contact lenses are
certainly a much safer proposition, since any sort of surgery has a potential for side effects and
complications. There can be nothing as simple as wearing spectacles or contact lenses. With an
elaborate series of new designs and makes, your spectacles can be strong fashion statement as well.

Don’t hastily jump on a conclusion. It is advised that you carefully examine all the above alternatives
prior to going in for a surgery. Do your best to avoid any surgical treatment. If you suffer from a minor
refractive error, one that can be easily corrected by wearing glasses or contact lenses, there is no point
going in for a LASIK surgery.

                                          How To Get Ready For LASIK Eye Surgery
                                                                By Jimmy Roos



 Getting ready for any surgery is a tedious process and preparing for LASIK is no different. One must
ensure that everything is ready and that you look good. While preparing for LASIK isn't as difficult as
with some other surgeries, there are still a few things you need to take care of before you go in for
LASIK.

If you are wearing contact lenses, take note. You must remove your contact lenses a few weeks before
you have your LASIK consultation. The reason for this is because some contact lenses reshape your
cornea themselves, hence causing problems with LASIK. Here are some FDA recommendations
based on your contact lenses:

-Soft contact lenses should be removed and not worn for at least two weeks prior to your LASIK
evaluation.

-Rigid gas permeable lenses should be removed and not worn for at least three weeks prior to LASIK
evaluation.

-Hard lenses should be removed and not worn for at least four weeks prior to LASIK evaluation.

This is done so as to allow your cornea to regain its shape and size.

Once you arrive for your consultation the LASIK surgeon will be able to take the true measurements of
the shape and size of your cornea and design the procedure around your measurements.

When you meet the LASIK surgeon to talk about your upcoming surgery you should tell him a little bit
about yourself. Tell him/her about any past or present medical conditions you suffer from. Also tell him
of any medications you may be taking or are allergic to. It is very important that you inform your doctor
about all of this so that he can decide if you're a good candidate for LASIK.

After you've shared your personal information with the doctor, he/she will then use this information to if
you are a good candidate for LASIK surgery. Ask him to explain to you the risks and benefits of the
surgery as well as other alternatives. In other words he should tell you what to expect all the way, from
beginning to end.

Don't use any perfume, cream, lotion or make-up the day before the surgery. This is to prevent any
debris from getting into your eye. The LASIK surgeon may even ask you to scrub and wash out your
eyes thoroughly before LASIK surgery to prevent any type of infection from occurring.

Lastly, it would be prudent that you arrange with a family member to be transported to and from the
LASIK center. Before the commencement of the LASIK surgery, the doctor may order that you be
given medicine to help you relax. Such medicine could impair your vision and reaction time, but it is
nothing to be alarmed about. After LASIK surgery you may have impaired vision and may need a few
days just to recover your eyesight, hence the need to have someone drive you to and from the LASIK
center.
