What are the common misunderstandings of laser correction of myopia

Abstract: laser surgery can only make the vision of the recipient close to the corrected vision with optical glasses, but not more than. If the vision corrected by laser surgery exceeds that corrected by optical glasses, the natural system of the eye will be damaged, and the gain is not worth the loss., Laser therapy is a popular method to correct myopia in recent years, but many people misunderstand laser therapy., Myth 1: laser myopia correction surgery is suitable for everyone, because excimer laser myopia correction surgery has accumulated a good reputation in terms of safety and effectiveness in recent ten years, so most people think that once the eye is myopia, you can do quasi sub surgery when the degree becomes higher. Experts believe that this is actually a misunderstanding. Teenagers under the age of 18 can never receive excimer laser surgery, because their vision system is not well developed, which will affect the effect. Although the upper age limit of surgery is not limited, the effect of surgery will be affected by presbyopia, cataract, conjunctivitis and other problems over the age of 55. In addition, myopia is caused by ametropia. Myopia laser correction surgery is to correct the diopter by cutting the cornea to achieve the purpose of correcting vision. It can not be used to treat other eye diseases. Therefore, the recipient’s eyes must have no other eye diseases. Most importantly, conical cornea is the contraindication of laser correction of myopia., Myth 2: laser surgery is not necessarily safe and may rebound. Experts say that many patients have concerns about “whether they will rebound”. Theoretically, as long as the corneal curvature is accurately carved and corrected by excimer laser, myopia will be “cured” and there will be no rebound. However, if a patient under the age of 18 years old, whose myopia is still developing and whose degree is not stable is operated, even if you correct the myopia to 0 degree, the patient’s myopia is still developing in the next time, and as a result, the degree is deepened. In fact, as long as it is a formal and professional ophthalmic institution and an experienced and responsible doctor, it will strictly screen the indications of patients and avoid forcing such a method to treat myopia for those who are not suitable for surgery, which will bring regret to patients., Myth 3: laser surgery can restore the vision before myopia. Laser surgery can only make the recipient’s vision close to the corrected vision with optical glasses, but not more than. If the vision corrected by laser surgery exceeds that corrected by optical glasses, the natural system of the eye will be damaged, and the gain is not worth the loss.,

laser therapy is a popular method to correct myopia in recent years, but many people misunderstand laser therapy. Misunderstanding 1 of

: laser myopia correction surgery is suitable for

. Because excimer laser myopia correction surgery has accumulated a good reputation in terms of safety and effectiveness in recent ten years, most people believe that once the eye is myopia, the degree becomes higher, they can go to excimer surgery. Experts believe that this is actually a misunderstanding. Teenagers under the age of 18 can never receive excimer laser surgery, because their vision system is not well developed, which will affect the effect. Although the upper age limit of surgery is not limited, the effect of surgery will be affected by presbyopia, cataract, conjunctivitis and other problems over the age of 55.

It can not be used to treat other eye diseases. Therefore, the recipient’s eyes must have no other eye diseases. Most importantly, conical cornea is the contraindication of laser correction of myopia.

misunderstanding 2: laser surgery is not necessarily safe and may rebound.

experts say that many patients have concerns about “whether they will rebound”. Theoretically, as long as the corneal curvature is accurately carved and corrected by excimer laser, myopia will be “cured” and there will be no rebound. However, if a patient under the age of 18 years old, whose myopia is still developing and whose degree is not stable is operated, even if you correct the myopia to 0 degree, the patient’s myopia is still developing in the next time, and as a result, the degree is deepened. In fact, as long as it is a formal and professional ophthalmic institution and an experienced and responsible doctor, it will strictly screen the indications of patients and avoid reluctantly carrying out this method to treat myopia for those who are not suitable for surgery, which will bring regret to patients. Misunderstanding 3 of

and

: laser surgery can restore the vision before myopia.

and

laser surgery can only make the recipient’s vision close to the corrected vision with optical glasses, but not more than. If the vision corrected by laser surgery exceeds that corrected by optical glasses, the natural system of the eye will be damaged, and the gain is not worth the loss. Misunderstanding 4 of

and

: the cheaper the price, the more cost-effective.

and

prices are not the most important indicators to measure excimer laser surgery. The effect of excimer surgery is highly dependent on the equipment (including auxiliary equipment) and operator level, and the equipment and operator determine the operation price, so the price cannot be the dominant factor for selection.

The above four misunderstandings are often caused by the wrong publicity of some hospitals in the early stage of laser surgery, a method for the treatment of myopia. There are many similar misunderstandings. For this method of treating myopia, we must have an in-depth understanding and be cautious in operation.
