REFRACTIVE SURGERY ADVICE

Laser surgery, (LASIK, epi-LASIK) is becoming increasingly popular, with surgeons continually refining techniques and lasers becoming more advanced. Generally the results are good. However, it's important to bear in mind that like any surgical procedure, complications can occur. These complications range from minor irritations to major crises, so it is worth investigating the procedure before committing to this irreversible procedure. As we have no vested interest we can offer you advice on all the pros and cons of this type of surgery, and also do a full investigation to see if you are a suitable candidate, and, if you so wish, make recommendations on the surgeon you should see.

Post LASIK Surgery follow-up is also very important. With the latest computerized corneal topography equipment we can ensure that the surgery has been successful and help you with your visual needs after the surgery, should there still be a need to.



WHY CONTACT LENSES AFTER LASIK OR OTHER REFRACTIVE SURGERY?

Despite high success rates, laser vision correction does not produce perfect vision for everyone. The results usually depend a great deal on the unique way your corneas respond to the laser surgery and how they heal thereafter. Poor night vision resulting from glare, halo and starburst are common problems after refractive surgery. Irregular astigmatism may also result, with blurred and/or distorted vision. Most people suffering from visual problems post surgery can tolerate it depending on the severity. We can use Z-Wave to help individuals whose laser surgeries have gone badly and who no longer have good quality vision. Z-wave uses CAD/CAM (computer aided design, computer aided manufacture) to produce an extremely complicated contact lens to correct the resultant corneal irregularities resulting from a laser surgery gone wrong.
