What you need to know about Laser Eye Surgery (LASIK) in Bangkok

LASIK eye surgery is simply a specific type of laser eye surgery which is used to treat a range of very common vision problems, including nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.

During LASIK surgery, the surgeon uses what is called an “excimer” laser in order to reshape the cornea. So, a thin layer of the cornea is lifted to create a tiny flap on the surface of the cornea, using blade-free Intralase Technology. The laser is then applied to the underlying surface to reshape the cornea, correcting the patient’s prescription. The flap is then simply replaced into exactly the same position as before, and the procedure is complete. 

Whilst with any elective surgical procedure there is always some element of risk, the fact is that LASIK eye surgery is one of the most common and certainly one of the safest of all elective surgical procedures.

Additional factors to consider:

1. More than 99% of patients achieve 20/20 vision or better following treatment and said it was one of the best decisions that they have made in their life.

2. Depending on the skill of your LASIK surgeon and the type of refractive procedure performed, acquiring good vision may take between two and seven days. However, full recovery from LASIK surgery may take at least six months.

3. Complications that result in a loss of vision are very rare. But certain side effects of LASIK eye surgery, particularly dry eyes and temporary visual disturbances, are fairly common.
