Superlasik Safer Than Lasik

If your over the age of eighteen and need corrective lenses you can benefit from corrective vision surgery. The investment pays for itself with the high cost of eyeglasses. Recently discovered Superlasik eye surgery can even be done on patients who have thin corneas and were not candidates for Lasik surgery. Its also safer since minimal trauma is done to the cornea.

Patients leave with a new completeness and clarity with life because really, how we see things affects our total outlook on life. Also there is a quick recovery following this new procedure. Most patients are able to drive the next day and some even return to work. People leave feeling rejuvenated and young, and in reality who wouldn’t want that? What has been exciting is that this technology is even safer than Intralase or the all laser LASIK.

Superlasik is an advanced procedure that has recently been developed for those who originally were not good candidates for the standard Lasik procedure. “Super Lasik” a new, safer and more stable procedure that has now been created for those who have thin or abnormal corneas. What is great about this new procedure is the effects are more precise and long term. To accomplish this cutting edge surgery, a new FDA approved instrument called a Epikeratome is used.

This instrument raises an approximately 50 micron flap (thinner than even an Intralase). Laser surface ablation using the latest generation of lasers is then performed. Like in Lasik the flap is riposted back. A bandage lens is than placed over the eye. This is a safer method of visual correction. There is no distortion of the architecture of the cornea. So if the cornea has a young’s modulus which is low, or is thin or asymmetric this method is safer.

Superlasik may not be the answer for everyone. If a patient has keratoconus or Pellucid marginal degeneration or other corneal disease than this procedure is not for them. Immunological disease and catracts may also preclude people from getting Superlasik eye surgery.

Dr. Khanna, a certified Master of Surgery, specializes in this surgery and in only the most advanced Lasik procedures such as laser wavefront, advanced surface, multi focal lenses, refractive lens exchange and refractive cataract. He is a current member of the UCLA faculty, where he shares his surgical skills and expertise in the safest and most effective forms of refractive surgery with a new generation of ophthalmic surgeons. He is also an active member of the top ophthalmology organizations including the American Academy of Ophthalmology and the American Society of Cataract and Refractive.

Before having Superlasik surgery one will have pre-op consultations in which the doctor will measure the cornea and dilate the eyes so that he can determine what procedure is right for that particular individual. The patient’s reward for having this procedure is a new and refreshing perspective on life and no glasses!
