Reasons for the large price difference of myopia surgery

Abstract: due to these different basic conditions, if you want to get ideal vision, the surgical methods for the treatment of myopia will be different. Therefore, the equipment and consumables used in the operation are different, so the price of laser treatment of myopia is different.

factors of price difference in myopia surgery:

1. Different supporting conditions.

surgery is not an isolated process. Strict routine ophthalmic examination should be carried out before operation to eliminate the diseases unsuitable for operation. Accurate optometry and corneal topographic map inspection shall be carried out. The corresponding data shall be accurately input into the computer. The data processed by the computer shall be imported into the surgical equipment. The laser equipment shall be accurately adjusted before each operation. These processes cannot be sloppy at all.

2. Different surgical methods.

the mainstream refractive surgery in the world today is LASIK. This kind of surgery preserves corneal epithelium, has little damage, less pain, easy recovery and less infection, but the operation cost is high. There is also an obsolete refractive surgery called PRK. This kind of surgery is low in price, but it is easy to infect if the corneal epithelium is scraped off, which is difficult to recover after operation, and the patients suffer after operation.

3. The patient’s own situation.

myopia patients can find that the degree of ametropia is large or small, and the corneal thickness is low or high. Due to these different basic conditions, if you want to get more ideal vision, the surgical methods for the treatment of myopia will be different. Therefore, the equipment and consumables used in the operation are different, so the price of laser treatment of myopia is different.

4. Equipment differences.

laser treatment of myopia requires very high surgical equipment. The requirement for equipment accuracy is measured in microns. The equipment is updated quickly.

5. Different consumables.

and

are the same. The prices of imported consumables and domestic consumables vary greatly. The cost of the blade used to make corneal flap is very high. In order to save cost, some hospitals use the corneal knife repeatedly, which is easy to cause patient infection and even blindness. All consumables of formal medical institutions, no matter how expensive, can only be used once.

6. Different surgeons.

and

good horses should be equipped with good generals, and good equipment should be operated by skilled doctors to give full play to its effectiveness. The human body is a complex large-scale system, and there is a subtle relationship between various organs. It usually takes at least 10 years of relevant working experience to become an expert in a certain field. The difference between experts and novices is that experts design surgical steps according to the situation of patients, which can effectively prevent risks.
