Laser Eye Surgery - Explained

Laser eye surgery is a medical procedure that frees patients from the constraints of glasses or contact lenses by reshaping the cornea using advanced laser technology. It is also known as refractive surgery. This minimally invasive surgery employs advanced laser technology to reshape the cornea, which is the transparent front part of the eye, to improve the way light is focused onto the retina. This laser eye treatment procedure corrects common vision issues such as:
  • Nearsightedness
  • Farsightedness
  • Astigmatism
This treatment approach can be tailored according to each patient’s unique eye structure, ensuring exceptional precision and long-lasting results.
The procedure typically involves using a specialized laser, such as SupraLASIK™. This vision correction technique avoids corneal incisions and provides increased safety and comfort as compared to traditional LASIK approaches. By avoiding corneal cuts, the impact on corneal nerves is minimised which decreases the chances of post-treatment dry eye (a common issue with conventional LASIK methods). Beyond ensuring patient comfort, this reduction in dry eye risk leads to the long-term stability of vision. Choose SupraLASIK™ for a safer and quicker alternative that enhances your vision’s well-being and minimises potential complications linked with other LASIK procedures.

Signs You Need Laser Eye Surgery

Here are signs that indicate it’s time to consider this life-changing procedure.

Blurry Vision

If you find your vision constantly blurry, even with corrective lenses, it can be a sign that your eyesight has weakened or that your eyes are not reacting well to traditional treatments.

Continuous Prescription Changes

If you notice a need for frequent changes in your glasses or contact lens prescription, it may be an indication that your eyesight is unstable and could benefit from a more permanent solution like laser treatment.

Eye Discomfort

Continuous eye discomfort, dryness, or irritation may be a signal that your eyes are not tolerating contact lenses well. Laser eye surgery can provide comfort from these issues

Night Vision Issues

If you are suffering from night vision, experiencing halos, glare, or problems seeing in low-light conditions, laser eye surgery can improve these issues simply by reshaping your eye cornea and treating overall vision quality, especially during night activities.

Peripheral Vision

Glasses and contact lenses can sometimes limit your peripheral vision, making it difficult to have a wide field of view. Laser eye surgery can help you get a wider range of vision without the obstruction of frames or lenses, enhancing your overall visual experience.

Laser Eye Treatment Options at Dr. Qasim’s Clinic

1. Photocoagulation
Focal photocoagulation is a laser treatment effective for diabetic eye disease, retinal tears, and macular edema. By creating controlled burns, it seals leaky blood vessels and forms scar tissue, aiding in the treatment of conditions like retinoblastoma and age-related macular degeneration.

2. YAG Capsulotomy
YAG Capsulotomy is also known as “Posterior Capsulotomy”. It is a highly safe and effective laser eye treatment to improve vision after cataract surgery. Using a laser, it safely removes cloudy remains and allows light to pass through the lens restoring clarity and sharpness to your eyesight.

3. Glaucoma SLT
Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT) is a modern and non-invasive laser eye treatment which helps lower intraocular pressure in glaucoma. It helps reduce intraocular pressure to preserve your vision and maintain eye health by using targeted laser pulses.

What To Expect with Our Treatment?

Scheduling your laser eye surgery with us ensures a streamlined and reassuring experience, provided by Dubai’s top eye specialist. On the day of your procedure, you’ll spend no more than two hours at our treatment center. Our dedicated team will conduct the necessary examinations; once ready, you’ll be taken to our laser-equipped treatment room.

The procedure involves a few essential steps. First, lying comfortably, rich anesthetic eye drops are applied to ensure complete numbness. Using a gentle device, your eyelids are held open without discomfort, facilitating the laser process. The laser itself, lasting a few seconds, precisely corrects your vision. If opting for LASIK, a secondary excimer laser may be involved.

After treating one eye at a time, you’ll return to the ward for a relaxing cup of tea or coffee before the final check. Our approach combines efficiency with patient comfort, ensuring you leave with a clearer vision and a sense of accomplishment.
