1. Which laser eye surgery is the safest?
There is no other laser eye surgery than the IntraLASIK which guarantees 100% safety.
This new procedure is the most comfortable and safest solution.
It combines the advantages of the traditional PRK and LASIK operations without their disadvantages.
2. How long does it take to get my vision back after the surgery?
In the case of IntraLASIK, vision improves right after the surgery; in the case of PRK, a few days are needed for recovery.
3. When can I go back to work?
It depends on what kind of laser eye correction you had. After PRK, you can return to work after 4-8 days; after IntraLASIK, only 1 or 2 days are needed.
4. Who can benefit from laser eye surgery?
Those who need to wear glasses or contact lenses to see distant objects clearly, and for those patients who need glasses for clear distance vision, but also need to use reading glasses.
5. Is the IntraLASIK procedure really painless?
Yes, this type of vision correction surgery is completely painless, although a slight pressure may be felt during the procedure. The surgery is done under local anesthesia, and only takes about 10 minutes. You can leave the clinic right after the intervention, and you will notice improvement in your vision shortly.
6. Is there any pain or discomfort after the IntraLASIK surgery?
The majority of patients experience no significant discomfort. You may experience some moderate discomfort, such as watering of your eyes, for a few hours after your vision correction surgery.
7. Is LASIK surgery totally safe?
Occasionally, in case of the traditional LASIK eye surgery complications may occur. That is why we decided to use the totally safe IntraLASIK procedure at our clinic, besides the also perfectly safe PRK eye surgery.
8. What are the advantages and disadvantages of the PRK surgery?
PRK was the most common vision correction intervention for quite a long period of time. It is a completely safe procedure, which uses excimer laser directly on the surface of the cornea. The vision correction by laser lasts a lifetime, and the outcome is outstanding. Nearsighted and farsighted patients can both benefit from PRK. The disadvantage of the surgery is that it causes discomfort and can even be painful in the first few days after the treatment.
9. How long will the laser vision correction last?
The laser vision correction usually lasts for a lifetime. The cornea is a very stable tissue; once it has been modified by an excimer laser, it stays in that modified state permanently.
