Both the lens replacement and laser eye surgery (lasik) are vision correction surgeries that have been developed to address visual impairment. However, these surgeries use different tools and techniques, and they are also recommended for different needs.
Laser eye surgery (LASIK) is a relatively cheap and very easy operation uses a laser to reshape the cornea to correct common refractive errors for shortsightedness and farsightedness, and eliminates the need for glasses and contact lenses.
Highly specialized laser uses a cool ultraviolet beam to ablate microscopic amounts of tissue from the cornea to reshape it, so the cornea focuses light on the retina more accurately to improve the vision.
For shortsighted people, the goal is to flatten the cornea; with farsighted people, a steeper cornea is desired.
Laser eye surgery requires only topical anesthetic drops, and no bandages or stitches are required.
Lens replacement is the replacement of the damaged/worn organic lens with a virtual one. Lens replacement surgery can solve not only farsightedness, but also shortsightedness and intermediate vision impairment as well as astigmatism with the use of multifocal toric lenses.
Additionally, lens replacement doesn’t have the age ceiling that limits the LASIK, therefore it’s the option for more senior patients.
We offer three different lens replacement options to our patients:
While the multifocal sounds the best treatment, trifocal is actually the more advanced and is especially recommended for patients who regularly drive at night time as it prevents the appearance of blurry halos around the lights.
Lens replacement surgery requires only topical anesthetic drops, and no bandages or stitches are required.
Please note that, contact lens wearers should stop using their contact lenses one month prior to their lens replacement operations.
We offer both LASIK and lens replacement operations in inclusive operation packages.
LASIK patients are required to stay with us for 5 nights while Lens replacement requires a 7 night stay.
