Nearsightedness (myopia) and farsightedness (hyperopia) are the standard condition that one is every five individual gets affected with. Laser Vision Correction is frequently used nowadays for treating such symptoms. The ophthalmologist recommends the procedure when the other primary treatments such as using glasses and contact lenses are exhausted. In Laser Refractive Surgery Treatment or a LASIK treatment as it is popularly called, the Ophthalmologist first makes sure that the patient is an ideal candidate for the procedure. Once this is established, the surgery involves the flap of the eye being removed under numbness. Then Laser is passed to cut the cornea to the desired distance so that the refractive light falls directly on the retina. Then the flap is put back and left to heal. Stitches are not used, and the flaps are left to heal naturally. The entire procedure takes only about 30 minutes, and the patient can return the same day. The common vision comes back within a day or two, and special eye drops are given as part of the medication. There is also very minimalistic risk involved like under correction, where the cornea doesn't get properly healed. Also, this procedure is not advisable if there is dryness to the eye. There can be halos, and double vision initially once the surgery is done and they get corrected over a period of few days. If the condition doesn't improve, then it is advisable to get checked with the Ophthalmologist. These are one of the safest forms of treatment available.
