The cornea is the transparent dome-like structure that covers the iris and pupil of your eye. By creating a flap in the cornea, the surgeon is able to perform the laser vision correction treatment on the inner layer of the cornea and allows for a rapid visual recovery.
How Does Laser Vision Correction Work?
LASIK (Laser Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis) is an advanced procedure using the Excimer Laser in combination with ALK (Automated Lamellar Keratoplasty). Many eye surgeons have found many advantages in performing LASIK, and worldwide it is the procedure of choice.First, a thin layer of the cornea tissue called the “flap” is made. Once this thin layer of tissue (the “flap”) has been fashioned, the Excimer Laser then reshapes the internal cornea for the desired optical effect for clear vision.
LASIK advantages include:
Little or no corneal haze
Rapid stability of vision
Little or no pain post-operatively
Elimination of prolonged healing time with less drops
Ability to treat higher ranges of nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism
While conventional LASIK has been a complete revolution in vision correction, nJoy Vision also offers the latest in laser vision correction technology: Custom LASIK. Custom LASIK is a procedure that enables your surgeon to further customize the conventional LASIK procedure to your individual eyes. This customized procedure may result in patients seeing clearer and sharper than ever before. FDA (Fedral Drug Administration) studies show that Custom LASIK may produce better vision than is possible with contact lenses or glasses.
In clinical studies, Custom LASIK has been able to provide patients with:
A greater chance of having 20/20 vision
The potential for better vision than is possible with contacts or glasses
Less incidence of glare and halos
Potentially better overall vision, even at night.
