There are many options available for surgical vision correction. If you are looking for the best corrective eye surgery for your particular refractive disorder, whether it is farsightedness, nearsightedness or astigmatism below are the 3 major types to consider.

LASIK eye surgery

This type of eye surgery procedure is widely favored from any parts of the globe due to its lesser complication, quicker Lasik eye surgery recovery time and ideal to correct any refractive error. The whole process would only need 10-15 minutes and no level of discomfort during the treatment. Patients can go home right after the surgery, return to work and normal activity in 1-2 days, and can expect 3-6 months for the healing process to take its full effect.

PRK eye surgery

Another corrective laser eye surgery procedure is the PRK (Photorefractive keratectomy) surgery. This laser treatment is aided by an excimer laser where the laser light is used to reshape the patient’s cornea. Here the surface layer of the cornea is actually removed unlike in Lasik surgery where there is a need to create a thin flap. Aside from the excimer laser, the eye surgeon is also guided by a computer to verify the patient’s eye surface and get a more accurate measurement on the corneal change. The recovery for a Prk eye surgery may require a longer healing period because the epithelial cells need more time to grow back, meaning a return to work in 3-5 days rather than 1-2 days with Lasik.

Custom Lasik (Wavefront-Guided or Wavefront-Optimized Lasik)

This is the latest form of laser eye surgery treatment in correcting one’s more complex visual problem. Under this eye surgical procedure, the eye surgeon can get a clearer measurement of the patient’s optical abnormalities, Custom Lasik is mostly favored by Lasik eye surgeons because they can use this measurement as the roadmap to evaluate the optical map of a patient’s focusing ability and make the necessary adjustments of the laser light settings to come up with a clearer and sharper vision with lesser difficulties to night vision.

General recommendations:

Making the right choice isn’t very easy, especially if your eyesight is the main concern. Ask your eye doctor what is the most suitable corrective surgery treatment for your visual disorder.
