As mankind has always longed for better vision, knowledge and technology has evolved over the past millennia, centuries and decades to achieve this goal. More and more so, today’s active lifestyle demands for visual performance that we can rely on, night and day, with freedom from glassed and contact lenses. Some professions simply can not go well with glasses or contact lenses...
Before the moderrn revolution of laser eye treatment, and lens implantation for vision correction, different types of refractive surgery have come and gone, but Dr Khalil consistently recommended against those procedures for most people. The current techniques of LASIK and implantation of special lenses procedure are different. Dr Khalil now recommends you consider Vision Correction if you have trouble with your glasses and contacts, or have a strong desire to see better without glasses.
The choice to undergo refractive laser eye surgery in order to get rid of your glasses is not an easy one.
Vision correction by both
LASIK vision correction and
Phakic lens implantation is not for everyone and you must
meet certain guidelines to achieve their best outcome. When
LASIK criteria are not met and it proves not
to be the optimum option for your eye condition, implantation of specially designed lenses over the normally
present lens (ICL and other kinds) become the best option,
Refractive lens exchange (RLE); which involves removing the natural lens and implanting an artificial lens with the correct power. This lens can sometimes be a multifocal lens, which allows good eyesight at both far and near distances with no need for glasses on either distance. Similiarly, toric lenses can be implanted in cases with higher degrees of astigmatism
Proper case selection is a must in all these modalities, and the correct opinion will be given to you by Dr Khalil after full consultation and evaluation of your particular eye condition. Dr Khalil will examine your eyes thoroughly, and give you the most suitable advice for your particular eye condition and particular lifestyle needs.
