Lasik provided by Karsaliakou Georgia

The “LASIK Keratomileusis” is the most widely used refractive surgery today.
LASER is applied under a very fine corneal flap which is created with a highly precise micrometre tool and which, after applying the LASER, is repositioned in place.
LASER works by removing tissue with amazing precision and the final result is a perfectly shaped cornea, which allows light to accurately focus on the retina. 
Starting on the very next day, the vision improves spectacularly and it is fully restored in about a week.The patient usually returns to work after 3-5 days. The surgery is not painful, since it is performed with anaesthetic drops and there may be only a small annoyance, afterwards.

Individuals with a refractive disorder are not all suitable candidates for refractive surgery.Some of the necessary conditionsfor patients are the following: they must have completed 18 years of age in order for their development to be complete – and, consequently their refractive error –; their correction should be stable for at least one year prior to surgery; they should stop using contact lenses for 15 days; and they should suffer from systemic conditions such as collagens, severe rheumatic diseases or chronic active corneal or retinal diseases.
Surgery should always be performed after a thorough preoperative assessment and by paying great attention to the details, in order for the likelihood of complications to be minimized.
As with any kind of surgery, there is, theoretically, a list of complications ranging from simple to more serious, the incidence of which is particularly low, given the current aseptic and preventive measures.
Complicationsinclude infection, allergy, complications related to the position and architecture of the flap or the corneal layer (tension), and theyare all treatable and do not lead to the loss of vision. In any case, however, the doctor’s instructions should be strictly followed after surgery.
