Before surgery refractive need to pass a diagnostic examination that allows the doctor to compile a complete picture of the state of Your visual system.
Also you should get tested: a blood test for Rw, HIV, HBs-Ag, Anti-HCV.
Are there any contraindications to laser vision correction?
With Femto-LASIK creation of the flap is performed by femtosecond laser – a special ophthalmic instrument. Dissection of the corneal surface boundaries of matter is carried out with a jeweler's precision. The absence of mechanical impact enhances the security of laser vision correction significantly reduces the risk of acquired corneal astigmatism.
In the postoperative period, the patient needs the least time to return to normal mode of life. In addition, the patient can visualize objects in all weather conditions – be it rain, fog, night.
What procedure is best done first: laser vision correction or laser strengthening of the retina?
Usually the procedure for strengthening the retina is held 1 month prior to laser correction. Study on laser strengthening of the retina can prevent its detachment and the patient to maintain good vision. The main purpose of peripheral laser photocoagulation is prevention – reducing the risk of complications and not improve vision. What will be the vision after surgery depends on whether there are any concomitant eye disease, affecting the ability to see well.
What mode is visual load after vision correction? The mode in which you can work on the computer?
Visual load after refractive operations:
For myopic – limited in the first two weeks after surgery, the third week – rational visual load with frequent pauses, with a gradual increase in the duration of visual loads and shorter pauses;
For farsighted – visual load close to shown from the first days after surgery.
To work on the computer, you can have 1-2 days after the laser vision correction. Depending on individual circumstances, many patients work at a computer the next day without any restrictions.
Car driving should be limited to the first month in connection with private security, as in the early postoperative periods is a primary adaptation of the eye and brain to new unusual optical conditions (altered visual acuity, field of view, estimate size of objects and distances between them).
