Our Nidek Wafe front Analyser and Corneal Mapping Topography System is used in planning the very popular LASIK / INTRALASE (Laser Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis) procedure.
LASIK significantly reduces or eliminates Myopia (Nearsightedness), Hyperopia (Farsightedness), as well as Astigmatism. All over the world, LASIK has become today’s preferred choice over the older R.K. (Radial Keratotomy) and P.R.K. (Photorefractive Keratectomy) procedures, mainly because LASIK has faster recovery time while producing great results. It’s virtually painless and most patients are back to normal activities the next day.
Hyperopic LASIK is performed in about 15 minutes under eye drop anesthesia only. For the younger farsighted patients this procedure may eliminate the need for reading glasses.
