What is the validity of the Preliminary test done before a LASIK eye surgery? What is the best technique in LASIK - using a blade, bladeless or Smyle?

2 Doctors Answered
Hello Most of these tests remain valid for long time but for practical purposes. I repeat tests if done more than 6 months back Bladeless is better. Smile is even better but little costly.
Bladeless called smile LASIK. LASIK is refractive surgery to correct myopia ,hypermetropia & astigmatism, refractive surgery also include intraocular ocular lens procedure. For LASIK your eyes must be healthy, if you have persistent dry eyes, LASIK surgery may aggravate this condition resulting in burning sensation & blurring of vision after LASIK.   For LASIK cornea must  have sufficient thickness because in reshaping of cornea, you loose the thickness of cornea & if your cornea is too ,you are not  fit case for LASIK.  Show quoted text.
