How can myopia be corrected?

Myopia can be corrected with glasses, contact lenses or surgery

In cases of myopia, the age to start evaluating surgery is 20 years old and it can be objectively analyzed on a case-by-case basis for people over 45 years of age.

Treatment of myopia

Surgical treatment is performed by laser and includes two fundamental techniques: LASIK and LASEK, which are performed according to the results of personalized studies of each patient.

Laser refractive error surgery allows myopia corrections from -1.00 to -10.00 diopters, hyperopia up to +6.00 diopters and astigmatisms up to -4.00 diopters approximately

A treatment modality is applied to patients over 44 years of age who already suffer from presbyopia due to their age, with a refractive defect of those mentioned above, and who consent to it, a treatment modality is applied that allows them both distance and mid-distance vision basically, although some can see up close as well.

The correction possibilities also depend on other factors such as the thickness of the cornea, the power and curvature, in addition to the degree of the refractive defect

Diagnostic tests for the surgical evaluation of the patient

The anesthesia used is in the form of eye drops (drops) and is not painful. The entire procedure takes approximately 20 minutes, although the actual application of the laser may take less than a minute.

The surgery is performed on an outpatient basis, that is, it does not require hospitalization.

The research lines of the service are fundamentally based on the longitudinal study of all the procedures carried out in the service for each of the refractive defects that are treated and other specific aspects.
