One in every five individual has myopia (nearsightedness) and hyperopia (farsightedness). The treatment is a generic one and can be corrected using glasses and contact lenses. However when some people would like to get this condition treated permanently, then a Laser Vision Correction is performed. An Ophthalmologist will carry out the Laser Refractive Surgery Treatment once the patient qualifies for it. Popularly called as LASIK, the Laser Eye Surgery involves the flap getting removed from our eye after drops are used to numb the area. Then the laser is passed through to cut the cornea to the desired limit. The limit determines the place where the light can fall significantly into the retina, thus improving the vision. Once the procedure is completed, the flap is put back for the normal healing to take place. There are no stitches involved, and they heal naturally. The entire procedure takes place in about 30 minutes and usually the ophthalmologist treats both the eyes simultaneously. After the correction darkened glasses are put so that light does not fall directly into our eyes. A healthy vision is usually got from the second day of the surgery. Haziness or a halo around a light is some of the symptoms which a person experiences initially and they usually disappear on their own after a period. A periodic check up is advised after the procedure is done and there will almost be no complications after the treatment as they are one of the safest forms available. Only in some extremely rare cases like dryness or an enlargement of the cornea is this surgery not performed.
