What Are Laser Eyes?
Laser eyes are a type of vision correction surgery that uses laser technology to reshape the cornea, which is the clear outer layer of the eye. The procedure involves using an excimer laser to remove microscopic amounts of tissue from the surface of the cornea in order to correct refractive errors such as nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. Laser eye surgery can be used to reduce or eliminate dependence on glasses or contact lenses for those with mild-to-moderate levels of these conditions.
The benefits associated with laser eye surgery include improved vision without corrective eyewear, reduced risk for certain types of eye infections due to decreased use of contacts, and faster recovery times compared to other forms of vision correction surgeries. Additionally, many people report feeling more confident after having their vision corrected through this method since they no longer need glasses or contacts. However, it’s important to note that not everyone is a good candidate for this type of procedure; individuals should consult with an ophthalmologist before deciding if it’s right for them.
