The eye is first anaesthetised by applying eye drops. Then, the outer surface of the cornea is abraded by a laser or mechanically over about 50 microns. Then, the Excimer laser is applied to the stromal surface of the cornea. At the end of the operation, the surgeon applies a therapeutic bandage lens.
First, the surgeon anaesthetises the eye by applying eye drops. Then, a thin surface layer of cornea, called the flap, about 100 microns thick, will be created. It allows the surgeon to perform corrective treatment on a deeper and more homogeneous area of the cornea, the stroma. The corneal flap is then repositioned.
First, the eye is anaesthetised by applying eye drops. The surgeon then applies the corrective treatment directly into the thickness of the stroma without cutting or surface abrasion of the cornea. Finally, the surgeon mechanically removes the cut tissue through a small incision.
5 to 10 minutes per eye.
Both eyes are operated in 6 minutes.
Both eyes are operated in minutes.
Pain and burning sensation for 2 to 6 days
7 days to 1 month
2 to 3 hours after (evening or the next day). You can return to work the next day
48h to 72h
Post operative pain between 48H to 7 days
Requires a minimum corneal thickness of 500 microns.
Re-correction is impossible with this method. It is also impossible to treat hypermetropia, presbyopia and excessive astigmatism.
At Vision Future, we practice operating techniques that are among the very best. However, we continue to give priority to Femto Lasik for its very rapid results, for the safety it offers and the almost painless nature of its treatment.
The PRK or TransPRK remains the preferred option in certain cases, such as for professional athletes (boxers or footballers) or when it comes to the cost of the operation.
