I use Computer more than 10 Hours for work one day in the morning eye got red and started itching (when I seen it was a white colored layer (small patch) bottom of the eye ball) then visited the hospital Dr. Told its an allergy due to dry eye. Then Prescribed the drop: OFlox D for 15 days (coarse starts with 4 times a day then reduced by a time every after 4 day interval then stopped after 16 days) continued Alercheck (at night) and talimus (in morning) more than one month. Later I visited another ophthalmologist He told its the lipid deposit on the cornea bottom of the eyeball and that need to be treated with Laser Treatment. Then Visited another ophthalmologist He Prescribed Lotepred LS (4 times a Day) and told its not good to scrap the lipid deposits its size is very small so it would reduce gradually and it would take time. Is there any treatment other than surgery (Cured with Medicine and drops? Please specify.
LASIK, Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis, aims at correcting the shape of the cornea, which is the transparent layer that lines the front of the eye. Through this procedure, the cornea is reshaped so that the retina receives a focused light.
When do you need this surgery?
This surgical procedure is ideal for people having following conditions, making spectacle use mandatory:
- Hypermetropia or farsightedness - Close objects appear indistinct
- Myopia or nearsightedness - Far off objects appears blurry
- Astigmatism - Overall fuzzy vision
Advantages of LASIK:
Biggest advantage of LASIK is that it helps people to get rid of glasses and contact lenses, which sometimes are cosmetically unacceptable and in some cases are visually disabling.
Best part of LASIK is that it is:
- Has a high success rate ( success rate is 96%)
- Quick (total duration of surgery is hardly 5 minutes) and virtually painless
- Adjustments can be made years later to alter the vision as per growing impairment in the future and advancing years
- Does not require bandages or stitches
Who can go for LASIK:
Any person 18 years or older who fulfils the following criteria can undergo Lasik surgery
- Stable refraction
- Dilated retinal examination should be normal
- Corneal thickness and topography should be in normal range
- Adequately wet eyes
