Laser technology enables procedures to be continued in minutes, with the laser system process counted in seconds. Thus, today it is possible to perform eye surgery by laser technology to improve people’s vision within minutes. Nevertheless, the main challenges are the cost of the procedure and the patient’s courage to go under the laser system.
According to the World Health Organization, about 1.3 billion people have some form of vision disturbance, herewith, uncorrected refractive error is considered to be one of the most general causes. Possible solutions are eyeglasses and contact lenses, which are ineffective for forgetful people. Therefore, eye therapy by a laser system is an ideal variant.
To be more precise, laser system surgery is a more permanent solution for eye disturbance. Nowadays the laser system-assisted in situ keratomileusis is regarded as one of the most common surgical procedures in eye treatment. Such laser technology was firstly introduced at the beginning of the 1980s, and over 40 million procedures by laser beams have been performed globally since 1991. The principle of laser system operation is based on the creation of a flap in the corneal tissue, after which a laser beam reshapes the cornea through ablation.
In spite of the fact that the principle of laser technology remains the same, however, modern advanced technologies make it possible to apply a femtosecond fiber laser instead of a surgical blade to cut the flap in newer techniques. It should be noted that “the flap creation takes about 20 seconds, while the process of laser beam ablation is 15 to 20 seconds. The entire procedure itself takes 5 to 10 minutes per eye, with two eyes taking 15 to 20 minutes”.
Compared to traditional techniques, the application of laser system makes the ablation process faster. Nevertheless, laser beam surgery is not a perfect procedure, that is why there is a range of accessible results, usually varying at around minus or plus 0.25 or 0.5. It is impossible to provide a perfect zero, but it is not the main purpose. The main purpose is to escape the need for glasses due to laser technology and to become as close to zero as possible.
Finally, the eye surgery by the laser beam from laser systems can be used only by patients under 18 with healthy eyes (no infections or conditions influencing the organ besides the refractive disorder), no pregnant and actively breastfeeding female patients.
