LASIK for Hypermetropia

LASIK (LASer-assisted In situ Keratomileusis) with the Excimer Laser, is the most performed hypermetropia surgery in the context of refractive surgery in USA. Its popularity comes from its advantages: patients recall no pain sensations and experience vision improvement as soon as a day after. This kind of surgery uses a specific instrument called microkeratome to create a thin circular layer (or flap) on the corneal surface.

The thin layer is flipped and placed on a side. Once the inner cornea portion is exposed, it’s time for the excimer laser ray to remodel it, correcting the refractive flaw. Finally, corneal tissue is replaced with no need of suture since tissues have a great adherence right a minure after this procedure.

This process is used to correct hypermetropia, myopia and also astigmatism.

This eye laser surgery is technically complex, but it by far the most comfortable for patients that want to treat myopia. This laser surgery has higher costs if compared to PRK.

I am almost 19 and last year Dr. Badalà diagnosed me with a macular degeneration due to strong myopia.

I received an Eylea Intravitreal injection and my view improved a lot and in a few months; I immediately got back... Keep on reading this review to my normal activities, for example using PC or watching television.

I suggest it because it has changed my life, it has improved it, and, in addition, Dr. Badalà has the ability to involve his patients in every way.
