A calculable risk laser eye surgeries include eye lasers since the late 1980s the medical routine interventions. First experiments with lasers and eyes were already carried out in the 1950s. Despite a short testing and research phase among the safest procedures in medical lasers on the eye. The probability that something could go wrong, is a probability of less than one percent. The eye laser surgery itself causes no pain, because the eye to be treated is previously numbed with eye drops. After the operation at home, these eye drops are still applied so that a pain-related friction is avoided and the eye can heal without prejudice. In some patients, the refractive error can not completely be corrected can this is known but usually before surgery.
It can be, that still glasses or contact lenses must be worn after surgery. If you belong to this group, they are usually in a preliminary talk about the result Laser surgery information. You can then decide in peace even if you then still perform the surgery or not let. A high success rate for eye laser surgery people no longer have, in a short-sightedness (myopia) as-10 dioptres and a farsightedness (hyperopia) exhibit to some + 5 diopters. Even when an astigmatism (Astgmatismus) of the eye, a laser surgery can provide healing. It comes to a higher risk factor an eye laser treatment but if you already suffer from an eye disease of as reduced production of tears or the eye, for example, due to a previous accident, does not work properly.
Likewise, it is discouraged during pregnancy and lactation following from such a derogation, because it could harm the baby. Also allergy-free are at increased risk and should consult before an eye treatment about special risks. The patient should also not under 18 years of age, because just for teenagers, the diopter number changed in the Growth process still constantly. Prerequisite for the eye lasers, however, is that the values about over a year remained stable. A surgery obstruction is not necessarily disorders such as a thin cornea of the eye. Because now different kinds of laser surgery, the patients in the position are for a suitable method to decide. Therefore no LASIK surgery would be carried at a thin cornea, but rather a LASEK procedures.
