Refractive surgery is an umbrella term for various surgical procedures in which the ophthalmologist changes the refractive power of the eye. The point of attack is either the lens or the cornea of the eye. Defective vision such as nearsightedness can be compensated or at least improved by refractive surgery. Refractive surgery is thus an alternative to glasses or contact lenses in the treatment of vision defects.
Refractive surgery includes the following operations of the eye for which the patient is usually given local anesthetic by drops:
Replacing the natural lens with an artificial lens (refractive lens exchange)
Before the patient decides to undergo refractive surgery, the ophthalmologist must inform him of the potential complications of the procedure. The refractive surgery has a complication rate of less than 0.5 percent.
Whether the refractive surgery leads to the desired success depends on you as a patient. Rub yourself in the first days after surgery not the eyes. So the cut in the cornea can heal better. Your doctor will also prescribe special eye drops that you should use regularly as directed. If you experience severe pain or a sudden loss of vision, consult your ophthalmologist immediately!
Keep in mind that refractive surgery does not always lead to an optimal result immediately. The doctor most with a laser.
