Non- in­va­sive eye treat­ment

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - BODY, MIND & SOUL -

This laser pro­ce­dure is fast and uses very low en­ergy. It is also odour­less and silent, so there is less dis­com­fort for pa­tients.

Pa­tients will also feel more com­fort­able be­cause suc­tion on the eye dur­ing treat­ment is gen­tler.

Fur­ther­more, there is no fright­en­ing “black­out” or bleed­ing ( no red eye) dur­ing the pro­ce­dure or swelling of the eye fol­low­ing treat­ment.

Due to the smaller wound by min­i­mally in­va­sive surgery, ReLEx SMILE re­sults in a much stronger eye and less im­me­di­ate post- op­er­a­tive dis­com­fort and tear­ing.

A small in­ci­sion means that fewer corneal nerves are sev­ered dur­ing the pro­ce­dure, which also means less dry eye.

With no flap cre­ated, flap dis­place­ment or dis­lodge­ment is not an is­sue.

ReLEx SMILE is a good op­tion for those who are in­volved in con­tact sports.

Most pa­tients will ex­pe­ri­ence dra­matic im­prove­ment in their vi­sion a day af­ter the surgery and then re­main sta­ble days af­ter.

If the present di­rec­tion and vol­ume of re­search is any guide, a large pro­por­tion of to­mor­row’s fem­tosec­ond tech­no­log­i­cal ad­vances and discoveries will be based on mas­tery of treat­ing re­frac­tive er­rors without even touch­ing the cornea.

All treat­ment will be in­trastro­mal and ReLEx SMILE is cur­rently one of the most ad­vanced pro­ce­dures avail­able.

Choos­ing laser eye cor­rec­tion is not a de­ci­sion you should take lightly.

Keep in mind that it is still a sur­gi­cal pro­ce­dure that car­ries sur­gi­cal risk, although the risk is very small and the suc­cess rate very high.

Get your eyes prop­erly checked and eval­u­ated by an eye sur­geon prior to surgery and dis­cuss all op­tions and po­ten­tial risks in de­tail be­fore mak­ing any fi­nal choices.
