Health is the most concerning topic for any individual, especially eye health. People had to wear spectacles due to their blurred vision and the ineffectiveness of traditional glasses, but Lasik eye surgery can be a permanent solution for this problem. There is no guarantee that your vision will be back to a 20/20 vision. Patients may need to use spectacles or contact lenses even after the surgery, but generally, the eyesight is back to normal soon after the surgery. If you are interested in the surgery, you should consult your eye specialist (ophthalmologist). The specialist will brief you about the procedure, expenses, risks, and benefits of the surgery and whether you qualify or not for the surgery.
TREATMENT AND CARE FOR EYES
More screen time may lead to certain diseases of the eyes, such as Myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism.
MYOPIA, also known as nearsightedness, is a widespread eye condition in today’s youth and working professionals. It is a condition in which one can see the objects placed nearby correctly or clearly but cannot see far placed things.
HYPEROPIA, also known as farsightedness, is also a common problem. Nowadays, it is a condition in which one can see the objects placed far appear blurred, but the objects placed near are visible correctly.
ASTIGMATISM is another eye condition in which a person cannot see both objects placed near or far away.
Eye problems can be corrected in many ways. There are options available for permanently treating these eye conditions; for example, one can opt for Lasik eye surgery. Wearing suitable spectacles is one of the most common ways to treat these types of eye problems. However, wearing glasses is not the permanent solution for these conditions.
To reduce strain on the eye, you can:
- Try to limit your screen time
- Always try to work under suitable lighting
- go for regular eye check-ups
- eat a good, balanced and nutritious meal
- avoid eating junk food and smoking
ARE YOU QUALIFIED FOR THE SURGERY?
Not everyone is qualified for Lasik eye surgery. There are some requirements that a candidate should meet if he is interested in the surgery. Some of the basic requirements of the surgery are:
- The candidate opting for the surgery must be at least 18 years old.
- The candidate must have stable eye vision over a couple of years.
- The candidate should not have a history of any eye diseases in the past.
- A candidate observing pregnancy is not fit for the surgery.
HOW A LASIK EYE SURGERY WORKS?
Lasik Eye Surgery is a very common eye treatment worldwide. A type of laser is used in Lasik eye surgery to fix the vision of the patient, generally affected by refractive disorders. An ophthalmologist, with a laser, will change the shape of your cornea. As a result, the image will be formed at the correct focal point in the retina.
One of the benefits of Lasik eye surgery is its quick recovery time. The patients do not feel much discomfort after the surgery and can return to work after two-three days. The surgery is also not very complicated. The eyes, a compassionate part of the human body, take a hefty toll on our unhealthy lifestyle. As a result, it is essential to take good care of them.
Always consider the advantages and the disadvantages of the surgery. Discuss these pros and cons of the eye surgery with your eye specialist and make sure you are mentally prepared for the surgery.
