Lasik Eye Treatment
LASIK stands for LASER ASSISTED IN SITU
KERATOMILEUSIS. This laser vision correction procedure can
be used to treat myopia (near sightedness), hyperopia
(Farsightedness) and Astigmatism.
In normal eye, in order to see
clearly, rays of light pass through the cornea,
pupil and lens of the eye. A sharp and clear image
is focused directly on the retina.
This is the most common type of
refractive error. In the near sighted person the
cornea is too steep or the eye is too long and the
focal point is in front of the retina resulting in
blurred distance vision.
For the far sighted person the focus
of the eye is behind the retina. People who are
farsighted can have trouble seeing at near.
In this type of refractive error,
shape of the cornea is not completely round but more
like an egg. Light entering the eye focuses on more
than one spot on the retina resulting in blurring of
vision. Astigmatism can occur with near sightedness,
or far sightedness.
