Cyprus Laser Eye Surgery


LASIK and LASEK laser eye surgery in Cyprus aim at vision correction for patients with refractive eye conditions (myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism).

LASIK Eye Surgery in Cyprus

LASIK in Cyprus

LASIK (Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis) is a vision correction laser eye surgery. LASIK in Cyprus is both popular and successful and many patients and eye doctors prefer it since it is also bladeless.

The procedure
LASIK eye surgery in Cyprus only lasts between 10 to 15 minutes and is pain-free. First, your eye will be numbed using eye drops. Once the eye is completely numb, the eye doctor will use laser to make a very thin flap in your cornea. Then, the doctor will use laser to reshape the cornea underneath the flap. Once done, the thin flap will be placed back and the cornea will start healing on its own.

LASIK post-treatment care and recovery
After your LASIK eye surgery in Cyprus your eyes might itch or burn. Mild discomfort or blurry vision is normal after LASIK eye surgery. You should avoid rubbing your eyes and getting water in them. You should also avoid swimming for some time. Make sure you protect your eyes from any kind of dirt or eye makeup for two weeks, wear sunglasses and use eye drops as instructed by one of Cyprus eye doctors.

With LASIK eye surgery many patients can return to their everyday activities within 24 to 48 hours, but healing time can vary between patients.

LASEK Eye Surgery in Cyprus

LASEK in Cyprus

LASEK (Laser Assisted Sub-Epithelial Keratectomy) is mostly used when a patient is not suitable for LASIK eye surgery. LASEK is preferrable for patients with thin corneas.

The procedure
LASEK eye surgery in Cyprus only lasts between 10 to 15 minutes and is pain-free. The procedure starts with anesthetic eye drops which will numb your eye. Then an alcohol solution is applied to loosen the epithelial layer of the eye and the eye doctor then uses laser to reshape the cornea. Once the cornea is reshaped the doctor places the loosened epithelial layer in place.

LASEK post-treatment care and recovery
After your LASEK eye surgery, you might feel mild discomfort. Your eyes can be itchy but you must avoid rubbing them. This is why your eye doctor might give you a special contact lens that acts as protection. You should avoid washing your face for at least 24 hours, be very careful when showering so that your eyes do not come in contact with soap or water for a few days and wear sunglasses. You should use the medicated eye drops your eye doctor prescribes as frequently as suggested. Also, you must avoid the use of screens for at least 24 hours.

It can take up to one to two weeks for a LASEK patient to return to their everyday activities and for their vision to stop being blurry. Of course, the healing time depends on each patient.

FAQ

How can I know if I am suitable for LASIK or LASEK eye surgery in Cyprus?

To be suitable for laser eye surgery you must undergo some exams and meet specific criteria. Your eye doctor will ask you questions about your general and eye health and will assess your level of myopia, astigmatism, and hyperopia. Previous eye injuries and eye conditions are key factors in your suitability for laser eye surgery.

If your meet the basic criteria the eye doctor will then also analyze your corneal thickness to know if you are a suitable candidate for LASIK or LASEK eye surgery in Cyprus. LASEK eye surgery is preferable for people with thin corneas.

Does laser eye surgery hurt?

The majority of laser eye surgery patients find the procedure pain-free. That is because the anesthetic eye drops that are applied before surgery completely numb the eye. Thus, most of the patients only feel something touching their eyes during laser surgery. However, after the procedure some patients may experience some sort of discomfort during the healing process.

How safe are LASIK and LASEK eye surgery?

Both laser eye surgeries are safe, effective and have a high success rate. Of course, like with all surgeries there are some risks and side effects with LASIK and LASEK eye surgeries as well.

Some temporary side effects include dry eyes and double vision, which can fade away within a year. Vision loss, eye infection, chronic pain and astigmatism are among the permanent side effects of LASIK and LASEK.

Is LASIK in Cyprus successful?

LASIK eye surgery in Cyprus and other countries has a very high success rate with patients having corrected eye vision following the laser eye surgery. Other than successful LASIK eye surgery in Cyprus is also pain-free and easy.

Can Cyprus weather affect my eye laser surgery?

Sun in Cyprus will not affect your laser eye surgery if you follow your eye doctor’s post-surgery advice. In general, eyes after a laser surgery can be sensitive to light and brightness so you should not expose your eyes to the sun and if you have to go out you will have to wear sunglasses and a hat.

When can I return to work after LASIK and LASEK eye surgery?

This usually depends on each patient’s healing process and of course which laser they do. Most LASIK patients can return to work 48 hours after the laser eye surgery while most LASEK patients can return to work within a week from the surgery.

Of course, the nature of the job affects the time a patient can return to work. People who lift weights or somehow put pressure on their eyes at work need to stay home for two weeks.

How can I know if I must to LASIK or LASEK eye surgery?

Your eye surgeon will see you to determine which laser vision correction surgery you should do. They will examine the condition of your eyes, your general health and your eye background to see if you are eligible for LASIK which is the most common laser eye surgery as it requires less healing time.

The eye doctor will then examine your cornea and its thickness to see if you can get LASIK surgery as patients with thin corneas must get LASEK surgery. Your ophthalmologist may also suggest LASEK eye surgery if you do contact sports, as this method is safer for you and your cornea.

How long before my laser eye surgery in Cyprus should I not wear my contact lenses?

Your ophthalmologist will tell you how long before the laser eye surgery you should stop wearing your contact lenses according to your refractive error and the type of lenses you use. Usually, you should stop wearing soft contact lenses at least one week before laser eye surgery and hard contact lenses at least four weeks before laser eye surgery.

Will I ever need glasses after my laser eye surgery?

People get LASIK and LASEK eye surgery to correct their vision. However, a lot of patients eventually need glasses years after their laser surgery. This depends on the prescription strength and refractive error of each patient as well as on their age. A successful Lasik or LASEK eye surgery does not protect the eyes from age-related eye conditions like presbyopia. Therefore, glasses may be needed even after a laser eye surgery.
