Is Laser correction possible if one has thin cornea?
EXCIMER Clinic employs FemtoLASIK Laser vision correction technique. This perocedure may be used in various complicated visual system conditions, thin cornea included. But the main advantage of FemtoLASIK is quality correction outcomes. FemtoLASIK is assisted by two lasers: Femtosecond and Excimer. The correction principle is still same: change of shape of a refractive eye media – cornea, and the change occurs within mid layers of cornea. The key advantage is that the surgery is carried out based on patient’s individual parameters with highest accuracy of micrometer fraction of the surface corneal flap diameter, thickness, alignment and morphology. Such a flap is perfectly thin and smooth, eliminating any hazard of vision distortions under e.g. low light conditions, which may occur as results from other laser vision correction methods. FemtoLASIK eliminates the need for mechanical cuts of cornea, therefore after-surgery complications (yet very low with other laser vision correction procedures) become only “theoretically probable”.
EXCIMER Clinic is the only in Odessa to offer this procedure, and among only few in Ukraine to deliver it while this procedure has been successfully practiced in the world for over 10 years with about 1,5 million surgeries performed.
They say and write very often that young children should not watch TV. Please explain why?
Human eye is ideally designed to look at objects located at a distance, since this is a passive process, similar to sound perception. To look at objects nearby the child’s eye has to actuate an additional adaptive mechanism, the focusing apparatus. When young children spend long hours in front of TV their untrained eyes are subjected to excess strain, sending the distress signal to the brain. Trying to fix the problem the brain commands to elongate the eyeball to allow image focussing on the retina without extra muscle strain. As a result the eyeball is getting elongated causing the eye to become near-sighted, adjusting to the need to constantly look at short distances. And this is a continuous process, sclera (the tough eye protective membrane) becomes less strong, keeps stretching and myopia keeps progressing.
Our grandmother was diagnosed with glaucoma. She uses eyedrops but her eyesight is still getting worse. Is there any way to help her?
Glaucoma is a serious irreversible disease. Increased intraocular pressure manifesting glaucoma disturbs optic nerve nutrition causing its atrophy. If the disease is not timely attended vision may be lost. Moreover even a timely start of treatment cannot bring back the lost vision, the pathology process can only be slowed down.
Usually they start glaucoma treatment with eye drops reducing intraocular pressure. Medication, dosage and application mode can be prescribed only by a doctor. Patients must strictly all doctor’s recommendations, irregular use of eyedrops and missing a dose are not allowed. Glaucoma patients should visit doctor at least once every half year undergoing examinations including intraocular pressure checks, field of vision measurements, fundus examinations, etc. If testing and examination results witness to the fact that intraocular pressure has not been stabilized, a surgery is suggested. EXCIMER Clinic doctors perform several glaucoma surgery types all aimed at eye fluid balance restoration and preventing further vision deterioration.
