Laser Eye Surgery
Laser eye surgery is one of the most common elective procedures in the world, with over 32 million laser vision corrections performed worldwide so far. And it’s no wonder, when you consider that this relatively fast and painless procedure could free you from glasses and contact lenses for good.
What is laser eye surgery?
Laser eye surgery uses a special ‘cold’ laser to gently change the shape of your cornea (the clear front part of your eye). Because the cornea does much of your eye’s focussing, changing its shape allows us to correct focussing errors, so you can see clearly again (see how the eye works).
LASIK or LASEK: what’s the best laser eye surgery?
One of the first questions patients ask about laser eye surgery is whether they should choose LASIK or LASEK. The LASIK procedure is a two-step operation, where a flap is first created in the cornea (the clear front part of your eye), and then a laser is used to correct your vision. The LASEK procedure does not involve the creation of a corneal flap, and is generally better suited to people with thinner corneas.
At Exeter Laser Eye Surgeons, we offer both types of laser eye surgery, plus a range of non-laser treatments, and the one we recommend for you will depend entirely on your suitability. You can be absolutely sure we will only ever recommend a treatment if it’s right for you.
