Age For Laser Eyes.?
Hello I want to ask how much does the laser eye cost? And what age should it be? Thank you
Good evening Qiawidya, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Lasik surgery or in-situ keratomileulis laser is the act of using a laser beam to improve the shape of the cornea of the eye so that vision becomes clearer and sharper.
Lasik surgery is indicated in patients with nearsightedness, farsightedness and cylindrical / astigmatism. Contraindicated in: patients with good vision, have large pupils, thin corneas, have presbyopia eyes, follow sports that are at risk of facial physical trauma.
There is a minimum age requirement for lasik surgery, which is a minimum of 18 years (there are several health institutions that set a minimum of 21 years), the reason for people's eyesight will continue to change until the maximum age of 18 years. This is an exception for children who have nearsightedness that is severe in one eye and normal in the other eye. Other requirements: the patient must be stable; possible eye conditions treated with lasik; not suffer from glaucoma, cataracts, diabetes / diabetes.
From this lasik surgery 96% of patients experience improved vision quality, minimal pain, no need for stitches. Risks of this action include undercorrection (expected quality of vision is not optimal), overcorrection, astigmatism, dry eyes, the process of healing abnormal wounds so that the vision returns to the condition before surgery. The worst complication that can occur from lasik action is the loss of the cornea and the resulting fog resulting in decreased vision.
You should visit an ophthalmologist to check whether you are a suitable laser surgery candidate.
All of our suggestions and answers, hopefully useful, good night.
