  2. 2. Email: office@intermedline.com Phone: +1 518 620 42 25 Hyperopic and LASIK are available and even supra hard cataracts are treated using just 1 mm incision instead of the 3 mm incision size. Photo refractive keratotomy or PRK treats the surface of the cornea with the Excimer laser while LASIK treats the inner tissue of the cornea. For this reason, with LASIK there is less area to heal less risk of scarring, less risk of corneal haze, less post-operative pain.

  4. 4. Email: office@intermedline.com Phone: +1 518 620 42 25 Vision Errors- Why? Cornea is a part of the eye that focus lights of retina to create an Image (Similarly to camera lens focus light on film). The bending and focusing of light is known as refraction. If the shape of cornea is not perfect the image on retina is unclear. These imperfections in the focused on power of Eye are known as Refractive Errors or vision errors. `
  5. 5. Email: office@intermedline.com Phone: +1 518 620 42 25 `There are mainly three type of errors: 1.Myopia or Nearsightedness: People who have difficulty in seeing Distant Objects. 2. Hyperopia or Farsightedness: People who have difficulty in seeing Near Objects. 3. Astigmatism is a distortion of the image on the retina caused by irregularities in the Cornea.
  6. 6. Email: office@intermedline.com Phone: +1 518 620 42 25 `Eye Glasses(spectacles) or Contact lenses are used to compensate for the Eye’s imperfections. Surgical procedures aimed at improving the focusing power of the eye are called Refractive Eye Surgery. Laser Eye Surgery procedure (LASIK Eye Surgery) In LASIK Surgery, precise and controlled removal of corneal tissue by a special laser treatment re- shapes the cornea by changing its focusing power. There are mainly four stages in the surgery as follows:
  7. 7. Email: office@intermedline.com Phone: +1 518 620 42 25 `1. Creation of a thin flap on the Eye. 2. Folding the thin flap to expose the portion of Cornea beneath. 3 Computer controlled laser re-shapes the Cornea. 4. The thin flap is laid in to original position and observed for 3-5 minutes. Cornea bonds quickly and Eye does not requires stitches. The total time for surgery usually takes less than 30 minutes.
