Laser treatment of myopia, do you understand these misunderstandings?

Abstract: if the patient is young, the refractive state is unstable, the cornea is thin, the degree is high, there are active eye diseases or fundus diseases, serious dry eyes, systemic diseases affecting the operation effect, or other eye symptoms that do not meet the operation standards during the preoperative examination, it is not suitable for myopia laser surgery.

can completely bid farewell to myopia and restore clear vision in only ten seconds. This is the charm of laser treatment of myopia. Today, with the increasingly developed medical technology, myopia laser surgery has become a keen choice for more myopia patients with its faster, safer and more comfortable characteristics. Although more and more people choose to take off the lens through myopia laser surgery, some people still don’t know enough about surgery, and there are some misunderstandings in one way or another. Misunderstanding 1 of

and

: everyone can do

and

. Whether it is traditional surgery or femtosecond laser surgery, it has certain indications and contraindications, and not everyone can do it. If the patient is young, the refractive state is unstable, the cornea is thin, the degree is high, there are active eye diseases or fundus diseases, serious dry eyes, systemic diseases affecting the operation effect, or other eye symptoms that do not meet the operation standards during the preoperative examination, it is not suitable for myopia laser surgery. Misunderstanding 2 of

and

: the operation will have sequelae.

and

myopia laser surgery is predictable. If the preoperative examination predicts that the postoperative effect is not ideal, there are potential postoperative safety hazards or obvious hazards, the operation can not be done. If the preoperative examination meets the operation standards, the operation is safe for patients and there will be no sequelae.

the statement that surgery will increase the incidence of other eye diseases is also groundless. Myopia laser surgery belongs to ocular surface surgery. The laser will not enter the eye, has no adverse side effects on the internal tissues of the eye, will not increase the incidence of cataract, glaucoma and other eye diseases, and will not affect the treatment of other eye diseases. Misunderstanding 3 of

and

: postoperative vision will rebound.

and

laser surgery is carried out on the stromal layer of the cornea, which does not have the ability of regeneration, so there is no vision rebound in the operation itself. As long as the preoperative examination is qualified, the refractive state is stable, the corneal thickness is moderate, and the eyes are not tired after operation, the visual acuity can remain stable for life. If you are myopic again, after strict examination, if you are suitable for reoperation, you can also have a second myopic operation, which has been accepted by many people abroad.

myopia laser surgery has developed so far, the surgical technology has been very mature, and the surgical safety has been recognized. However, due to the large number of hospitals carrying out myopia laser surgery, patients must choose regular hospitals. Regular hospitals can provide greater guarantee for operation safety in terms of surgical equipment, doctor experience and supporting facilities.
