Laser Eye Surgery and Cataract Surgery in Richmond

With more and more people requiring glasses and contact lenses from an early age, the demand for LASIK and PRK laser eye surgery is also increasing.

Laser vision correction takes away the stress of having to worry about glasses and contact lenses in your active lives. Whilst there are many who get on fine with glasses and contact lenses, there are many others who struggle with them, whether it be during sports or when you’re sitting in front of the computer. Laser eye surgery is a life-changing procedure that gives you naturally amazing vision, allowing you to enjoy life to the fullest.

LASIK Eye Surgery in Richmond

LASIK is the most popular form of laser eye surgery. It corrects a wide range of prescriptions including short-sightedness (myopia), long-sightedness (hyperopia) and astigmatism.

In LASIK, a flap is first created and lifted and the cornea under the flap is then reshaped to correct for your prescription. At the end of the procedure, the flap is put back down. This procedure is painless and full visual recovery is seen as soon as the following day.

LASIK surgery owes its popularity to its short downtime, minimal discomfort and rapid visual recovery. Patients are able to see very well and can return to their usual activities by the next day.

PRK Laser Eye Surgery in Richmond

Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) is also known as advanced surface laser ablation (ASLA). Unlike in LASIK, no flap is created. The cornea is reshaped directly on the surface, allowing for a completely no-touch technique.

Benefits of PRK for those not eligible for LASIK:

  • A great alternative for those with thin or unusually shaped corneas.
  • May be more suitable for patients with severe dry eyes.
  • PRK may be a better option for those who engage in contact sports as there is no risk of late flap dislodgement.

Cataract Eye Surgery in Richmond

A cataract is the clouding of the natural crystalline lens of the eye. Cataract formation is a normal part of ageing and is therefore more common in older adults. Younger adults can also develop cataracts and these usually occur due to other risk factors.

The symptoms of cataracts are usually insidious due to its gradual onset. Some of the symptoms include blurred vision, difficulties reading, glare symptoms at night causing difficulties with night driving, and difficulties seeing under low contrast/dim lighting conditions.

Cataract surgery is the only treatment for cataracts. In this painless 20 minute procedure, the cloudy lens is removed and replaced with a lens implant that not only restores your sight but may also remove your need for glasses. There are many lens implants available on the market and discussion with your surgeon will determine the best implant for your visual needs and lifestyle.
