Laser vision correction

If you are unlucky with your eyesight, this doesn't mean that you have to wear glasses or lenses all your life. Methods of laser vision correction can get rid of myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. Laser technology in ophthalmology is the cutting edge of this field of medicine, the most innovative and perfect way to correct visual deficiencies.

In order for us to see everything clearly, the eye must focus. The inability to “set up” the right focus -  is the cause of poor vision. With the help of a laser, doctors today can change the shape of the cornea so that the eye can regain its focus, and the image that falls on the retina is clear.

The first technique of laser vision correction was developed quite a long time ago - doctors began operations in the late 1980s. Since then, the approach has improved significantly. About 3 million operations are carried out in the world every year, and their number is growing - people stopped being wary of this procedure, and prices are gradually falling, making laser vision correction accessible to many.

What problems will help solve laser vision correction? This procedure is effective for myopia up to -12 diopters, hyperopia up to +6 diopters, and mixed astigmatism from -4 to +4 diopters. Sometimes this procedure is applied to more serious defects.

Laser vision correction can be recommended to anyone who suffers from vision problems. It is especially necessary for those who for some reason cannot wear lenses or experience significant discomfort when using them. Laser vision correction is an excellent way out for those who have problems with only one eye.
