Featured Laser Eye Surgery Clinics
Aris Vision has become a leader in the opthalmological market as a result of successfully treating more than 30,000 patients. Our clinic is located in Juarez, just across the border from El Paso, Texas.
We have the latest equipment to correct nearsightedness, hyperopia, astigmatism and other visual ailments. Indeed, we offer complete eye care surgery.
The eyes of every potential candidate for surgery must be studied separately because the characteristics of each corneal ametropia may be different in the same individual.
In general, LASIK is recommended when:
- The patient is 18 years or older.
- Ametropia is within the range of the correction technique.
- The ametropia has proved to be stable
- There are no contraindications (eye diseases, collagen diseases, pregnancy etc.)
- The candidate patient has undergone an eye examination and has taken a break from wearing contact lenses
The cornea is a natural lens that is in the front of the eye and it is the most powerful refractive lens of the eye. Because of this, the cornea is the structure of the eye where most of the refractive procedures take place. By changing the corneal curvature, myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism can be corrected.
Lasik is an operation which is performed in the Excimer Laser suite. The whole procedure is done under topical anesthesia (numbing drops) and the duration is seldom longer than 15 minutes for both eyes.
A small suction ring is placed over the sclera (the white part of the eye) to hold the eye open firmly. The automated microkeratome is then passed across the cornea to create a thin flap. This part of the operation usually takes only a few seconds.
The suction ring is then removed from the eye and the flap lifted back to leave enough room to use the Laser beam. The Excimer Laser, which has been previously programmed specifically, is then applied. Rapid, continuous emissions of Laser pulses remove small and precise amounts of corneal tissue. Depending on the type of refractive error, this part of the surgery last between 30 to 60 seconds.
The cornea is irrigated with saline solution and the flap folded back to its original position. Within minutes the flap adheres itself to the rest of the cornea and the Lasik procedure is completed. In a couple of days the cornea will be crystal clear and an almost imperceptible scar will barely be seen.
Usually there is in no pain involved during the post-operative period. Vision will start to improve hours after the surgery and can be surprisingly good in 2-3 days. Nevertheless, patients should allow at least one week for their vision to get better.
As with any refractive procedure, there is no “magic” and sometimes under-corrections or over-corrections can occur. In these cases, an additional refining treatment will be carried out during your next consultation.
Lasik is the newest and most advanced procedure for refractive surgery around the world. It can correct almost any amount of refractive error. It has become an easy and effective operation with fast visual rehabilitation and little discomfort.
It should be noted that this procedure does not prevent the eventual progression of refractive error being treated: a myopia, for example, could continue despite showing signs of stability a time. LASIK can remove your dependence on lenses but it may not eliminate them completely in all cases.
