Refractive surgery: Laser to remove glasses


Refractive surgery makes it possible to become free from glasses. This eye surgery with the excimer laser, can cure myopia, astigmatism, hypermetropia and presbyopia. Thanks to the laser energy, such vision flaws can be even cured at the same time, as for myopia and astigmatism, or hypermetropia and astigmatism. The ophthalmologist can, using the laser, mold the cornea with an incredible accuracy, curing myopia, astigmatism, hypermetropia and presbyopia.

In some special cases where laser is not convenient, intraocular lenses are a possibility: there are several kinds that can be implanted inside the eye to overcome vision flaws as precisely as laser does. Curing high degree myopia for example, is possible thanks to the implant of phakic lenses.

Laser surgery can be performed with several techniques. Dr. Badalà perform myopia laser surgery in Milan and Catania with latest generation excimer lasers such as:

  • VISX Star 4 (AMO)
  • Technolas 217p (Baush & Lomb)
  • Wavelight Allegretto (ALCON).

It is very important to rely on a modern laser to cure the eyes. The same attention should be put in choosing among the different laser tools, because everyone has its own strong points.
