SAN FRANCISCO, CA, May 16, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The use of lasers in eye care has increased in popularity over the past several years. The reason for this is simple: lasers offer the most precise, effective, and safe treatment option for many eye care procedures. Lasers used in eye care have allowed for remarkable advancements in cataract surgery and the treatment of various eye diseases and conditions. They have also been essential in refractive error correction surgeries such as LASIK and PRK. In fact, vision correction surgery has seen the largest development in eye care lasers and new, exciting developments continue to occur on a frequent basis.
Most developments in laser eye care occur with LASIK technology. LASIK continues to be performed with an eximer laser that gently reshapes your cornea, but now your eye surgeon can also offer bladeless LASIK that uses a femtosecond laser to create the corneal flap. This enables even people with thin corneas to undergo LASIK treatment and achieve optimal vision.
Other technologies used in LASIK include wavefront technology that can feed information to the eximer laser providing customized results. With these developments, the success rate of LASIK is now well over 90 percent and the procedure itself is safer and more comfortable than ever.
When you are looking for an ophthalmologist or eye surgeon, you should take time to ask questions about the technology he utilizes. Your eye doctor should offer the latest in laser eye care to help protect against unnecessary complications and to provide you with the most comfortable experience possible. No matter what procedure you require, choosing an eye doctor who is dedicated to providing state-of-the-art technology is one of the best ways to ensure your absolute comfort and safety.
