LASIK Patients Should Be Above 18

Press Release ( - Dubai - Feb 10, 2016 - LASIK treatment is a revolutionary eye surgery that corrects vision problems. It is safe to say that this technique, first conducted in the United States in 1991, has transformed the field of ophthalmology. It has made glasses unnecessary and solved vision problems such as short sightedness for millions of patients worldwide. From the 1990’s when it was first clinically trialled, it has incubated many advances which have made the invasive procedure more comfortable and effective for patients.

Given the positive note from LASIK surgeries, is it considered as a treatment for any patient. No the doctors at Ebsaar Eye Surgery Center in Dubai caution. LASIK treatment for any patient requires careful observation and analysis of the eyes by trained specialists to deem whether they are suitable for the surgery. No LASIK treatment should be conducted without a proper evaluation of suitable methods, ideally by a cornea expert.

The doctors advise that failure to follow proper assessment methods could harm or deteriorate the vision even further. LASIK involves the use of laser eye surgery and is an invasive procedure that adjusts tissues of the eye. Once done it cannot be replaced, and extra care should be taken by the surgeon who should ideally be experienced when dealing with the cornea.

The specialists at Ebsaar Eye Surgery Center further explain that patients must be above the age of 18 to qualify for the treatment. Since the eye is still growing or changing below the age of 18, conducting a surgery such as LASIK could end up as a failure. Other pre conditions that are also taken into consideration are the patients general health, age and whether the patient has any other eye diseases.

The operation when conducted lasts for only around 10-15 minutes per eye. It is an outpatient surgery and the patient can recuperate at home after surgery. However, the specialists advise that proper after care must be taken care of including treatment of dry eyes and the requisite pain killers and antibiotics for the discomfort that arises after the surgery.
