What Types of Surgery are Available?

LASIK
LASIK is the most common type of refractive surgery. It uses a laser to reshape the cornea and correct refractive vision issues, including astigmatism. This procedure is performed at the Arizona Eye Laser Center and lasts around 1.5 hours from the moment you step into the office to the time you leave. Patients typically report having near-perfect vision as soon as the following day.
Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL)
Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL) surgery involves implanting a new prescription lens between your iris and your natural lens through a tiny incision. The new lens works in tandem with your natural lens to provide you with clear vision. It is frequently recommended for patients that are extremely nearsighted or who do not qualify for LASIK due to thin corneas or significant dry eye.
Refractive Lensectomy (RLE)
Also called refractive lens exchange (RLE), refractive lensectomy is a very similar procedure to cataract surgery. The difference is that cataract surgery is intended to remove a cataract, whereas a refractive lensectomy corrects your vision by removing your natural clear lens. The procedure is able to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. It is often performed in those over 40 who do not have a cataract but want to decrease their dependence on contacts or glasses.
Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK)
Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) is a type of refractive surgery that uses an excimer laser to reshape the cornea. A thin layer of protective skin, called the epithelium, is removed with the laser and the cornea’s surface is reshaped. After the correction has been made, a contact lens is inserted into the eye to act as a bandage until the epithelium grows back over the next several days. The bandage contact lens is then removed by your surgeon. While the recovery time is longer than LASIK, the PRK procedure is a great option for those who have thinner corneas or stronger corrective prescriptions. If you have been told that you do not qualify for LASIK in the past, PRK could be an option for you.

How to Choose A Good Eye Surgeon

As with all surgical procedures, you should thoroughly research your options to find the best surgeon for you. First, check to see if your routine vision insurance plan provides a discount with your surgeon or the facility. Second, verify that your surgeon is local to your area and will be available for your post-operative care.

Find a facility that has high-quality equipment and experienced surgeons and staff. Also, carefully research the experience of the eye surgeons you have under consideration. Find one who has a good rate of success over a long history of performing eye surgeries.
