More About Vision Correction at Queensland Laser Vision
For LASIK eye surgery, the physicians of Queensland Laser Vision combine the Amadeus microkeratome device with the leading-edge NIDEK EC-5000 CXII excimer laser system for optimal results.
LASIK eye surgery is performed under anesthetic eye drops and begins with the creation of the corneal flap, a thin piece of tissue that is separated from the eye with the microkeratome and folded back to allow access to the stroma (middle of the cornea) for laser reshaping. Next, the excimer laser is used to ablate tiny particles of tissue, thereby reshaping the cornea and eliminating refractive errors such as nearsightedness and astigmatism. This part of the procedure lasts less than a few minutes per eye. Following laser reshaping, the corneal flap is placed back into its original position to facilitate healing. Most patients who undergo LASIK eye surgery or another type of vision correction procedure at Queensland Laser Vision are able to greatly reduce their dependency on glasses and contact lenses within days following surgery.
