The eye is not like “a football”, but more like a “rugbyball”. This produces a deformed image and can sometimes be combined with myopia or hyperopia.
This is the newest technique with which almost all refractive errors are corrected. Lasik is a combination of microsurgery and laser technology.
This technique (TransPRK) is meant for people with a thin cornea or other kind of corneal defect, which cannot be treated with lasik technique.
In the case of very large refractive errors, or if lens blurring is present, it is better to place an artificial lens in the eye.
Through this technique we treat refractive defects from 50 years of age on, of both myopia and hypermetropia combined with astigmatism, in which the accommodation has stopped acting.
Small Incision Lenticule Extraction with SMILE is the most recently developed type of laser eye surgery. It’s a minimally invasive procedure that can correct various vision impairments such as nearsightedness and astigmatism.
