The human eye is one of the most important parts of the body. With the help of technological breakthroughs, eye problems are easily resolved through the help of eye surgery. Eye treatment such as Lasik eye surgery is now widely available to the public. It involves the use of an excrimer laser and a corneal flap is made to reshape the cornea to allow better light accommodation in the eyes. Other procedures, depending on the eye problem, are also available.
The procedure called laser in situ keratomileusis, as an example, may sound complicated. However, this procedure can be done in a matter of minutes. A laser is used to shape a patient's malformed cornea for better light accommodation and focus. While recovery rates can depend on each person, some patients report quality vision improvement within hours and full recovery in a month. It is important for the patient to take note of some complications after the surgery. The after-care is likewise as important as the main surgery itself. The patient must limit himself to light activities. These include walking, watch television, and bathing below the neck. The patient needs to avoid the heavy duty work as this increase pressure in the recovering eyes.
