Laser blended vision, is a sophisticated laser eye treatment which rectifies short-sightedness (myopia) in one eye and long-sightedness (hyperopia) in the other eye. Primarily the treatment is for condition called presbyopia (progressive loss of the ability to focus on nearby objects) or other age-related eye conditions.
Clear Lens Replacement
Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE) is essentially cataract surgery, but exclusively for refractive purposes. RLE is sometimes called Clear Lens Exchange (CLE), Clear Lens Extraction (CLE), and Refractive Lens Replacement (RLR). RLE is often an appropriate alternative to conventional or wavefront LASIK, All-Laser Lasik, PRK, LASEK, Epi-LASIK if the patient is presbyopic.
Laser vision correction has been performed in many countries around the world to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism since the 1980s. Multiple scientific studies of the long-term results for LASIK have shown that the
NearVision CK (Conductive Keratoplasty) is intended for people over 45 who want to improve their near vision and reduce their dependence on reading glasses. CK is not intended for people with myopia (nearsightedness).
The PRK procedure is similar to that of LASIK in the way the laser is applied to the eye. The main difference is that there is no flap created by the surgeon using a microkeratome. Instead, the laser is used to produce your optical correction by reshaping the outermost surface of the cornea, rather than the tissue beneath a flap, as in LASIK.
ICLs work with the eye to correct high levels of nearsightedness and farsightedness (greater than 6 dioptores) and is great for people who wants a procedure beyond what LASIK and PRK can offer. The procedure is performed in an outpatient setting and, typically, one eye at a time is corrected.
