During the early 70’s and 80’s, wearing glasses was the only option that one had when they had refractive error i.e. eye power. However, only the one who wears specs will be able to understand and relate his problem. The first thing that one gets up in the morning and does is hunt for glasses. If you want to get rid of this issue and many others like carrying an extra pair of glasses on travel, not being comfortable with contact lenses not being able to play your favorite sport or swim then LASIK IS THE ANSWER.
LASIK and Refractive surgery is an ideal choice for you to correct common vision problems (nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism) to reduce your dependence on prescription eyeglasses and/or contact lenses. Depending upon the eyes your doctor can help you determine the right type of surgery:
1. Custom LASIK: Custom LASIK surgery is also known as wavefront LASIK surgery which improves your contrast sensitivity. The surgery provides better quality of vision in both day and night. It also minimizes the risk of night time glare. It reduces the post- LASIK complications such as glare and the difficulty with night vision. Custom LASIK treats both lower and higher aberrations.

2. Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK) Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK) is a type of refractive surgery, which is used to correct myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism. In this surgery, the eye surgeon uses a flap free procedure that does not require any flap to be made in the cornea. Instead the outer layer of the cornea is removed to reshape it. As this surgery does not cut a flap across the cornea the chances of a reduction of the amount of tears is less and also the chances of dry eyes are less With the latest advancement in technology, vision correction is possible after the day of the LASIK surgery.
