What is Laser Eye Surgery?

Laser Eye Surgery?
Laser eye surgery is currently the most frequently performed elective procedure in the world where a cool beam of light from an excimer laser gently reshapes the front surface (cornea) of your eye. This procedure improves vision and could give you complete freedom from glasses and contact lenses. Over 22 million laser eye surgery procedures have been carried out worldwide helping to change people’s lives for the better. Here in the Ukraine we can offer the same procedure for a fraction of the UK prices with no compromise in standards. Even when factoring the costs of flights and accommodation it is still considerably cheaper. Look at the price list and compare the difference in costs, you have the peace of mind that the surgeon are some of the very best working in sate of the facilities in a superior health institute.
Improving family life
Wearing glasses or contact lenses may hamper the active life you lead with your children. Undergoing laser eye surgery could ensure that you’ll be able to enjoy playing with your children without the fear of breaking your glasses or losing a contact lens. What’s more, if you’re a new parent, being able to check on your child in the middle of the night without having to find your glasses first could provide valuable peace of mind.
Relax and enjoy your family life more with laser eye surgery from one of our highly recommended eye surgeon in the Ukraine, Kiev.
Helping you enjoy your holidays
Many of our patients tell us that laser eye surgery has minimised the hassle of packing when going on a holiday abroad. Following a laser eye surgery procedure, you’ll no longer have to worry about forgetting your glasses, contact lenses or prescription sunglasses. Nor will you be concerned about getting sand or sun cream in your eyes and irritating your lenses.

Laser eye surgery lets you be spontaneous: so you can take a dip in the sea or go on an adventure holiday without losing a contact lens or breaking your glasses.

Easing the pressures of work

Many of our patients complain that, before having laser eye surgery, contact lenses would have a drying effect on their eyes at work – whether due to air conditioning systems or sitting in front of a computer screen all day.
With laser eye surgery, this problem is eliminated and you’ll no longer have to rely on glasses or contact lenses at work either.
Enjoy playing sports
If you lead an active lifestyle, laser eye surgery could alleviate the inconvenience of wearing glasses and contact lenses. You won’t have to worry about losing a contact lens while playing football or rugby, or whilst in a swimming pool. What’s more, if you’re a keen runner or cyclist, laser eye surgery could make a major difference in your life.
Many sports personalities have been delighted with the visual outcome of their laser eye surgery procedure – and you could be too.
Making the most of everyday life
Laser eye surgery is a positive and life changing experience that can improve many aspects of everyday life. Imagine, for example, being able to open your eyes in the morning and see your alarm clock without having to fumble for your glasses. You could also see improvements in your driving skills following laser eye surgery.
In the Ukraine, Kiev we offer laser eye surgery treatments such as: LASIK and LASEK. The laser eye surgery procedure that’s right for you depends on your suitability and requirements, which will be established during your initial free consultation.

PRK – the completely safe procedure

Laser is used directly on the surface of the cornea.
Its advantage is that it is exceedingly safe and its outcomes are outstanding. Its disadvantage is that the first three postoperative days are quite uncomfortable. Returning to work takes 4-8 days. PRK was the first laser eye treatment invented (in the 1980’s) and for a very long time it was the most common laser eye surgery. It is still performed by surgeons because it is a completely safe procedure and sometimes is the only available option for patients who have very thin or flat corneas.

LASIK – the comfortable procedure
LASEK (Laser-Assisted-Epithelial-Keratomileusis) eye surgery is an alternative laser refractive procedure to correct short sightedness, long sightedness and astigmatism.

Laser is used in the completely insensitive layers under the surface of the cornea to correct vision. In order to do so, these layers must be accessed. In the traditional LASIK procedure, a mechanical tool called microkeratome is used to cut a protective flap in the cornea to get to the insensitive layers. The advantage of the traditional LASIK intervention is that not only the surgery, but the postoperative stage is also free of any severe discomfort or pain. Vision stabilizes fast, so returning to work is feasible within 1 or 2 days. LASIK surgery uses a cool beam of light from the excimer laser to gently reshape the front surface (cornea) of your eye. The entire LASIK eye treatment takes about 10 minutes and, unlike other laser correction techniques, LASIK eye surgery patients experience less discomfort after the procedure. Both eyes can be treated by LASIK simultaneously.

A number of eye conditions can be treated with the help of LASIK surgery, including:

Myopia – short sightedness, when you find it difficult to see things at a distance Hyperopia – long sightedness, when you find it difficult to see things up close Astigmatism – a curving of the cornea that can make it difficult for sufferers to focus.

Common questions about LASEK eye surgery
Q. Will I be suitable for LASEK eye surgery?
A. To ensure the best possible results, we are able to treat most people over 18 years of age who have had a stable prescription for 12 months. Prior to LASEK eye surgery being undertaken, you will attend a laser eye consultation with an Optical Express specialist refractive optometrist who will determine your suitability for LASEK eye surgery based on your personal prescription, healing profile and expectations.
Q. Can I have both eyes treated at the same time with LASEK eye surgery?
A. With LASEK eye surgery, both eyes can be treated at the same time.
Q. Will my eyes be painful during or after LASEK eye surgery?
A. We use anaesthetic eye drops that completely numb your eye so you remain comfortable throughout the LASEK laser eye surgery. With LASEK eye surgery you will feel some mild sensations and discomfort after the treatment, normally in the first 28- 48 hours.

 

The difference between LASEK and LASIK
Statistically, 85 per cent of all laser eye surgery treatments carried out in the USA and Europe are LASIK, rather than LASEK. That’s because LASIK has a more convenient, faster recovery time.
However, a certain number of patients may have thin corneas or may be involved in certain contact sports – in these cases, LASEK eye surgery is more appropriate.
Visual outcomes following LASEK surgery are similar to those produced by LASIK., our specialist refractive optometrists and ophthalmic surgeons will advise you at every stage of the LASEK process.
Who is suitable for LASIK surgery?
If you suffer from any of these eye conditions, LASIK eye surgery could be a good option for you. However, everyone’s eyes are completely unique and this means it’s important that you have an individual assessment before deciding on LASIK surgery.
If you’re under 18, you’ll have to wait until after your 18th birthday to book LASIK surgery. Typically, the people most suitable for laser eye surgery have had a stable prescription for 12 months, but a Laser Trained Optometrist will be able to make a decision based on the health of your eyes.
Diagnosis and tests prior to LASIK treatments
At your consultation, a laser trained optometrist will spend some time testing your eyes to make a diagnosis and determine your suitability for LASIK surgery. These include:
Determining the current strength of your glasses Reading the way light passes through your eyes Measuring eye pressure Measuring infractions in your eyes
Measuring the size of your pupils in the dark. Your surgeon may carry out a number of other tests to determine your
What happens after LASIK surgery?
LASIK eye surgery patients often see a significant improvement in vision within a few hours of the procedure, and most patients are able to return to work after 48 hours.
Following LASIK eye treatment, your eyes may feel light sensitive, gritty and watery. Some patients may feel slight irritation for a few hours, but most are quite comfortable after a rest. We recommend that you bring sunglasses with you to your LASIK eye surgery or purchase them on the day from our extensive range. You will also be given light transparent eye shields to take home and wear while sleeping for five nights after your LASIK surgery to provide protection.
Visual settling time is faster with LASIK than other laser eye surgery procedures. Occasionally however, some patients are not deemed suitable for LASIK and LASEK may be recommended.

Q. Can I have both eyes treated at the same time with LASIK eye surgery?
A. With LASIK eye surgery both eyes are normally treated at the same time.
Q. Can I return to work and be able to drive following LASIK eye surgery?
A. Most people are able to drive and return to work within 48 hours after LASIK eye surgery, unless their work environment is very dusty or dirty.
 
IntraLASIK – the safe and comfortable procedure

Its safety comes from a technological novelty not used in the traditional LASIK procedure, which is that the protective flap is not cut by human hand or a mechanical tool, but computer-controlled special femtosecond laser equipment. The cutting of the protective flap is planned by a computer and performed with the amazing accuracy of the laser, with a precision of one thousandth of a millimetre.

The computer plans the ideal protective flap for every patient individually, and a special laser is used to create this ideal flap, which fits perfectly when folded back and is secured extremely fast and permanently.

Advantages of IntraLASIK:

* complete safety
* complete painlessness
* extremely fast results

Cataract treatment

Cataract surgery is an out patient procedure, you will not have to spend time in hospital and there is no need for general anesthesia .The surgery takes only 15-30 minutes.

During cataract surgery the patient’s cloudy lens is removed by an ultrasound driven instrument through a tiny (only few millimetres) incision made by the doctor. Then an artificial lens replaces your cloudy lens. This lens is called intraocular lens (IOL).

Cornea Reshaping

Computer-controlled pulses of cool laser light are applied to the inner layers of the cornea. As the laser pulses, it makes a ticking sound. The inner corneal layer is reshaped with the laser to correct short sightedness, long sightedness or astigmatism impressions in your eye
