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.

Votazione: Eccellente
After having consulted several doctors, last year I turned to Dr. Badalà because I felt a discomfort to the eye. At first sight Dr. Badalà realized that there was something wrong in my right eye and, after a thorough e... Keep on reading this reviewxamination and an OCT, he confirmed the presence of a hole in the retina (which no other doctor had seen before) and he suggested me a vitrectomy.

After consulting other doctors who, despite having confirmed the diagnosis, suggested me to wait, I decided to entrust Dr. Badalà, because he inspired me with confidence during the visit.

I had a vitrectomy under local anesthesia about five months ago. The surgery was good and my eyesight has improved and I no longer see distorted images.

The thing that struck me most is that at first I was so used to don’t  see well that I didn’t  realize it, so much so that I had turned to Dr. Badalà just for a burning sensation to the eye. Thanks to the professionalism and accuracy of Dr. Badalà today I realize I see much better.
