Benefits of V.O.Z. for Laser Vision Correction
Patients often come to our eye care center in Pune, India, and ask us “How do I know if I need Laser Eye Surgery?” The short answer is, if you are experiencing a refractive error. Refractive errors are caused by rays of light entering the eye that are not able to focus precisely on the retina.
The common refractive errors are:
ReLEx SMILE is the latest form of laser vision correction surgery. ReLEx stands for Refractive Lenticule Extraction and SMILE stands for SMall Incision Lenticule Extraction. With the ReLEx Smile procedure, there is no use of blades, no injections, and no patching of the eye. The eye is numbed with eye drops and the precise Femtosecond laser creates a lenticule to preserve the upper layers of the cornea.
The procedure is considered to be extremely safe and the recovery is very quick. Most patients are able to see normally and can return to work and resume routine activities two days after their ReLEx SMILE procedure.
Glaucoma is a complex eye disease characterized by increased intraocular pressure that damages the optic nerve. Glaucoma affects peripheral vision and can often lead to irreversible vision loss.
Since vision loss due to glaucoma is irreversible, the goal of glaucoma detection and treatment methods is to diagnose the condition early and control the progression of vision loss. Options include special eyedrops, oral medications, laser surgery, conventional surgery, or a combination of procedures.
