Laser Vision Correction

Laser Vision Correction alters the focusing power of the eye by changing the shape of the cornea.  Factors such as your glasses prescription, your age and visual needs and the configuration of your eye influence your surgical options.

Depending on visual goals and prescription, one of the laser procedures detailed below and offered by ParkView Day Surgery, may be recommended by your doctor.

  • SMILE® Pro stands for Small Incision Lenticle Extraction. It is a keyhole procedure where a small piece of tissue called a lenticule is created inside the cornea with the laser and removed through a small incision. This means many of the layers of the cornea are unaffected and allows fast healing. In addition, there are no flap-related complications.
  • LASIK stands for Laser Assisted In-situ Keratomileusis and is the most commonly performed laser vision correction procedure. With LASIK, a thin flap of corneal tissue is created in the outer layer of the cornea. This is folded back to expose the underlying corneal tissue, which is reshaped with an Excimer laser to correct the refractive error.
  • PRK stands for Photorefractive Keratectomy and is surface laser ablation. It was the first type of laser vision correction procedure performed and although the recovery time is longer it is still widely performed and has some advantages over other options.
  • Blended Vision – Also called mono vision, this technique can be implemented using laser vision correction procedures or with refractive lens exchange. One eye is made good for distance vision and the other good for near vision. The brain gets used to this very rapidly and most people very quickly do not even realise they are only using one eye at a time.
