Hunter Laser Vision Procedures
We offer a wide range of eye procedures at Hunter Laser Vision which are all subject to suitability. Our ophthalmic surgeons will determine whether or not surgery is an option and if so, which will be most beneficial.
Hunter Laser Vision have specialised in Laser Eye Surgery for over 18 years. LASIK (laser insitu keratomilieusis) is a laser ablation under a hinged flap of corneal tissue. LASIK is used to correct myopia and hypermetropia together with associated astigmatism.
Astigmatic Keratotomy involves a corneal incision used to correct large amounts of astigmatism. It can be used alone or in conjunction with LASIK Eye Surgery.
PRK is a laser ablation on the corneal surface. PRK is used to correct lower amounts of myopia and hypermetropia with associated astigmatism and can be a safe alternative for patients who are unsuitable for LASIK Eye Surgery.
Kerarings are also used to treat Keratoconus. The procedure involves inserting clear, semi circular rings in the periphery of the cornea to improve its shape.
PTK is a therapeutic treatment for various corneal conditions but is not intended as a refractive treatment. This can be used alone or in conjunction with PRK.
Eye Conditions Treated By Laser Surgery
Myopic patients experience vision that is clear for close objects, but blurred in the distance. This is caused by a cornea which is too steep for the length of the eye, causing light rays to focus in front of the retina.
Hypermetropic patients may see distant objects reasonably clearly, but have increasing difficulty with near objects. Conversely to myopia, this occurs due to a cornea which is relatively flat, causing light to focus behind the retina.
Astigmatism causes blurred vision at all distances. This is caused by an “egg” shaped cornea, where light rays are focused both behind and in front of the retina.
Presbyopic patients experience a decline in their ability to focus on near objects, due to a natural loss of elasticity of the lens. It is a common age-related condition, which is usually first noticed with reading deterioration or reliance on reading glasses, regardless of distance clarity.
