Vision corrections

Vision corrections

At PAKY eye care, we offer different techniques for sight correction. These techniques vary depending on the patient’s situation. We carry out many medical tests needed to determine the most appropriate technique for the patient’s condition.

A. Surface Laser Vision Correction or PRK

The surface laser vision correction process is one of the most popular approved ophthalmic surgeries to correct the patient’s optical ability so that he does not need medical glasses or contact lenses. It is to put material on the eye, scrape it and then direct laser on the eye cornea.

The duration of the procedure is 10 to 15 minutes, and the surface laser process needs three weeks to be fully recovered.

The conditions for conducting this surgery are:

  • The patient must be at least 18 years old.
  • Not to be a pregnant woman or breastfeeding.
  • To have a healthy eye free from inflammation or allergies.
  • The view strength is between -1.00 and -12.00 degrees.

B. LASIK sight correction

LASIK sight correction surgery:

Is based on correction of vision defects, myopia; hypermetropia and astigmatism, by correcting corneal deflection. Laser is used to remove a thin layer of the surface of the cornea except for a small part connected to the eye and then use another type of laser to modify the shape of the inner fabric of the cornea and return the outer layer to its normal position.

This surgery takes between 10 and 15 minutes

C. Sight correction with intraocular lens or ICL

The surgery of sight correction by implanting intraocular lenses is based on creating a microscopic hole in the cornea to reach the inside of the eye to grow a thin and soft lens in the front of the eye, behind the iris and in front of the natural lens.

This surgery is the perfect solution for patients unable to perform laser operation due to weakness in the cornea.

They are also considered very safe after the significant development in recent years and with the emergence of the new generation of lenses.

It takes 15 to 30 minutes to perform a lens transplant.
