What Is myopia Surgery?
Despite the fact that myopia is the most common refractive error in the world, it is becoming very easy to manage. Various surgical procedures have also been advocated in addition to more conservative ones. The most widely approved procedure is corneal refractive surgery. In the younger age group, LASIK, photorefractive keratectomy, and small incision lenticule extraction (SMILE) can be used to correct myopia up to 8.00 D.
Lens-based techniques are available for people who are not appropriate for corneal refractive surgery. Those who are younger than 45 years of age and have extreme myopia or other contraindications to corneal refractive surgery are good candidates for phakic intraocular lenses. RLE with the implantation of multifocal or monofocal intraocular lenses is becoming more common among elderly patients.
Laser eye surgery, intraocular lens surgery, glasses or contact lenses can all be used to treat short-sightedness.
It’s common for people to have laser eye surgery if they want to fix their eyesight and no longer wear glasses or contact lenses. For those who participate in contact sports, enjoy swimming, or simply lead an active lifestyle, glasses are a no-no since they get in the way.
Many people find that wearing contact lenses is bothersome and time consuming, not to mention uncomfortable. All of that has changed thanks to laser eye surgery. You may now have your vision corrected fast and easily, with no discomfort and minimal downtime, thanks to new technology.
An excimer laser, an implanted contact lens, or a refractive lens exchange can be used to correct vision.

What is laser Myopia Surgery? Read on to find out.
If you’d like to know which myopia surgery is best for your eye needs, you’ve come to the right place. Our team of experts will provide you with up to date information and costc based on your eye condition and overall health. It is necessary to conduct a comprehensive health checkup to know which course of treatment is best for your long-term health.
Available Treatments for Myopia Surgery
Small Incision Lenticule Extraction
SMILE (flapless surgery) creates a small incision in the cornea and removes a thin piece of corneal tissue. Laser eye surgery’s newest innovation is called SMILE. It is a minimally invasive treatment with proven precision that uses femtosecond laser technology. The operation itself takes only a few minutes, which allows for a quicker recovery.
ASLA or PRK (Photorefractive Keratectomy)
Using surface laser ablation (PRK), the cornea is flattened and light rays are able to focus on the retina more accurately. Flaps cannot be generated on corneas with uneven shapes or that are too thin. To improve the vision without generating a flap, a surface laser technique can often be performed. LASIK-like clarity of vision is still possible with this operation; however, a lengthier recovery period is required.
LASIK (Laser-Assisted In-Situ Keratomileusis)
Flap surgery (LASIK) uses a controlled blade or precise femtosecond laser to form a hinged flap of tissue, which is then returned to its original position after the procedure. People who don’t want to wear glasses or contacts can have their vision corrected using LASIK, a laser eye surgery treatment performed by our doctors. Most of our patients report little to no pain or discomfort as a result of the anesthetic drops we administer. Success rates for LASIK are 96%.
Implantable Contact Lens
A patient’s prescription is used to create custom implantable contact lenses, which are then placed into the eye. There are some people who are not suited for laser correction because of their corneal thickness or high prescription. ICL might be utilized instead. The surgery is reversible if necessary, resulting in good visual quality.
Are You Eligible for Myopia Surgery?
People who want to have LASIK surgery must normally be in the following categories to be eligible:
- Do not be under the age of 18.
- Have steady vision for at least a year before surgery and a stable prescription for glasses or contact lenses.
- Not be pregnant or a nursing mother.
- Medically or ophthalmologically relevant discoveries or conditions have already been treated.
During puberty, children’s eyes undergo the same hormonal changes as the rest of their bodies, and this affects their eye development. LASIK has an age limit because most people’s bodies cease growing around puberty. If surgery is performed before the eyes are fully formed, the long-term benefits a patient can expect from treatment are diminished.
Waiting until one’s twenties is recommended by many ophthalmologists, as not everyone completes puberty in their teens.
A year of stable vision and a suitable and stable glasses/contact lens prescription for at least two years prior to surgery is required.
LASIK is a better option if your vision is stable and you haven’t had to modify your prescription in a while.
You’re likely to get poor results if your eyesight is constantly deteriorating, necessitating a new prescription every year or so. LASIK surgery may not be a possibility for some prescriptions; your surgeon can let you know whether this is the case when you talk about your treatment choices.
Not an expectant mother or a mother breastfeeding.
Pregnant and nursing women experience considerable changes in their bodies, including changes to their vision. As a matter of fact, it’s not unusual for pregnant women to change their eyeglass and contact lens prescriptions. In some cases, these changes in vision are just transitory. LASIK patients who have stable vision are more likely to see the full benefits of the procedure and are less likely to have to return for additional treatment in the near future.
Preeclampsia and diabetes can also affect pregnant women. Having one or both of these medical disorders can have a negative impact on eye health and raise the risk of surgery.
Do not have any serious health issues or eye problems.
When it comes to eye and medical issues, LASIK may not be the best option for you if you already have a serious health issue. Your ophthalmologist should be informed about any conditions you have, including glaucoma, corneal disease, keratoconus, age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, or corneal ulcers.
