Is A Refractive Lens Exchange The Right Choice For Me?
Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE) removes the natural lens from your eye and replaces it with an intraocular lens implant that permanently corrects your focus. It can correct any degree of short or long-sightedness and also astigmatism. RLE is performed for patients whose natural lenses are known to have insufficient power to naturally permit clear vision and is recommended for patients who are not candidates for laser eye surgery.
What Is PRK?
PRK (Photorefractive Keratectomy) is a form of laser vision correction where a surgeon will remove the surface layer of the cornea, also known as the epithelium. They will then reshape the corneal bed with the laser in the same way as LASIK vision correction.
This is a specialized technique that is usually reserved for those patients whose cornea may be too thin to safely allow for the creation of the corneal flap that is essential for LASIK eye surgery.
What Is The Difference Between LASIK And Bladeless LASIK?
The key difference between the two procedures is the use of a blade versus the use of a laser to create a corneal flap for the surgery.
The bladeless surgery has been known to have a greater scope of application and has provided patients with thinner cornea’s the option of LASIK which was not previously possible.
The key similarity with the two procedures is they are both equally safe and have equally successful vision results.
The surgeons will be in the perfect position to assess and advise on both options.
What Is The Recovery Time For LASIK Eye Surgery?
The short term recovery for LASIK eye surgery is between 2-5 days. After the surgery patients will be advised against driving themselves home and will be provided with an eye patch to cover the eye. There will be a follow up visit after 48 hours during which the surgeon will assess the condition of the eye and the improvement.
Patients will experience improved vision within a week of their surgery which will continue improving until up to six months after the surgery.
