Benefits of laser vision correction
Laser vision correction gives a new quality of life
Vision correction will help you eliminate all discomfort related to wearing glasses or contact lenses, regain confidence and forget about psychological stress associated with wearing glasses. No more need to think about spare glasses or lens kit or spend money on designer frames. The only glasses you will now wear are sunglasses!
Maybe you think that good eyesight is a luxury you cannot afford? Excimer challenges these stereotypes!
What is laser vision correction
The human eye is a complex optical mechanism. As light beams pass through the cornea, crystalline lens and vitreous body, they refract and reach the retina to be transformed into visual signal and transmitted via the optic nerve to the brain, processed in the dedicated area of the brain to obtain a final clear image. In case of myopia, farsightedness and astigmatism, light beams fail to focus on the retina where required, and the final image becomes blurry.
The purpose of any vision correction technique is to change the refractive power of the eye so as to pick the beams together and transmit them to the retina to make the final image clear. It is for this reason that people with bad eyesight wear glasses and contact lenses. However, these methods of correction cannot make good vision last even when you are not using them. Besides, glasses and contact lenses place restrictions on your lifestyle and cause a lot of discomfort; and, which is more, they do not solve the issue of bad eyesight.
As compared to glasses and contact lenses, laser correction is a radical solution of the vision problem, so that you no longer require any additional contraptions to ensure good vision.
Laser correction engages one of the refractive optical components of the eye, i.e. the cornea, which is, in essence, a negative meniscus lens. Laser evaporates thin layers of the cornea (micrometer thick) for a high precision reshaping of the cornea so that beams would focus on the retina when refracted.
Excimer eye clinic in Saint Petersburg offers state-of-the-art facilities for laser vision correction, including:
- femtolaser correction assistance (more often referred to as Femto LASIK), i.e. replacing a mechanical tool at one of the stages of correction with a femtosecond laser for a gentler effect on the cornea and maximum result;
- customized correction assistance (also referred to as LASIK Custom Vue, Super LASIK), i.e. use of personal aberrometry data to compensate all existing visual aberration for a better quality of vision.

In many countries, laser vision correction is classified as a cosmetic procedure, not a surgery. It is a quick and easy way to get rid of a nagging problem.
