Find Eye Surgery Abroad with Make Medical Trip
Eye surgeries and any optics related medical procedures are both very delicate and complicated, and therefore can be costly. However, there are a number of countries that not only boast state-of-the-art medical facilities dedicated to eye surgery, but they do it at a very affordable price.
Preparing for laser eye surgery
The pre-operative exams are crucial for the doctor to create a treatment plan for your surgery. They are similar to other vision and eye tests you’ve probably experienced before, so they are mostly painless with only minor discomfort. One of the tests will check your tear duct function, and involves a small wire touching your eye, but this test is designed to be painless and although your eyes will tear up you shouldn’t feel anything touching your eye.
Another test, used to map the surface of the cornea, involves a device touching your eye. Your eyes will be numbed with anesthetic drops before this test, though, so you won’t feel it. Bemmu Sepponen, a Japanese LASIK patient, said he asked to touch his eye to make sure the drops worked. “I really could not feel my finger touching my own eye,” he said.
After you are taken to the procedure room, the technician will give you some simple instructions and some drops will be applied to your eye. If you are receiving any sedation to help you relax during the procedure, it will be administered. As the laser is calibrated, you may hear the clicking noise. You will be awake during the procedure, and the surgical team will be talking to you and giving you instructions. The surgeon will sit behind your head, and the other team members will be moving around you.
Common Eye Treatment Procedures:
During laser eye surgery
During the procedure, a vacuum ring will be placed on your eyes to keep them from moving during the procedure. Your vision may go dim or completely black while it is on. The surgeon will work on one eye at a time and while one is being worked on, the other will be covered with a patch. You should hardly notice the incision.
The entire procedure takes around 5 minutes per eye. Afterward, your eyes may be covered by a bandage. The doctor may also apply a special contact lens that also acts as a bandage. Your doctor may instruct you to remove the bandages at home or they will be removed during a check-up.The surgeon will then insert a lid speculum to keep your eyelid open. Although it may look intimidating, you will feel almost nothing when it is inserted. The next part of the procedure will require you to look at a red light, and the laser device will make corrections to your cornea. During this time, you will hear that clicking noise while the laser is working. You may feel some slight pressure while the laser is activated but, again, there will be no pain during this process.
Recovering from laser eye surgery
You will need someone to help you home. Your eyes may be covered, or you may be given blinders to wear at night to prevent you from rubbing your eyes in your sleep. They may feel dry, but there should not be any significant pain or discomfort. The dryness will go away within a few days.
Immediately after the surgery, your vision may be worse than before. Over the next several days, it will improve dramatically as your eye heals. The surgeon will arrange follow-up appointments, usually within 48 hours of the surgery and then possibly a second one after that if necessary. During the follow-up appointments the surgeon will examine your eyes, talk to you about your recovery, and test your vision for improvement.
