Femto smile is the latest technology in vision correction to treat nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. The procedure is totally ‘flap-less’, and involves a tiny incision being made in the cornea. The surgeon then removes a precise amount of tissue through this incision. Because there are no moving parts, the healing time for SMILE is even quicker than with conventional LASIK. There is much less incidence of dry eye and night vision disturbance, and the procedure is suitable for even those patients with very high prescriptions, drier eyes and thinner corneas.
Provides a broader spectrum of vision errors that can be corrected at higher safety margins with high success rates.
This new technology is used to correct vision errors such as myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism. The SCHWIND AMARIS laser system provides a sophisticated approach to carry out no-touch, all-laser surface ablations in a single step. Precise ablation with the laser With the Trans PRK (trans epithelial PRK), the epithelium is ablated by SCHWIND AMARIS laser systems.Also Trans PRK is also an advanced surface laser treatment because the epithelium is removed more precisely, uniformly and easily than with either manual or alcohol-assisted debridement.
– Preserving the cornea. – Preserving corneal nerves. – Possibility of treating higher degrees of vision errors. – No pain during or after the procedure. – A candidate can resume daily life the second day after Femto smile. – Less chance of eye dryness after the procedure.
Nearsightedness, or myopia, is a vision problem experienced by up to about one-third of the population. Nearsighted people have difficulty reading highway signs and seeing other objects at a distance, but can see for up-close tasks such as reading or sewing.
Myopic people often have headaches or eyestrain, and might squint or feel fatigued when driving or playing sports. If you experience these symptoms while wearing your glasses or contact lenses, you may need a comprehensive eye examination as well as a new prescription.
Myopia occurs when the eyeball is slightly longer than usual from front to back. This causes light rays to focus at a point in front of the retina, rather than directly on its surface. Nearsightedness runs in families and usually appears in childhood. This vision problem may stabilize at a certain point, although sometimes it worsens with age. This is known as myopic creep.
Nearsightedness may be corrected with glasses, contact lenses or refractive surgery. Depending on your vision problem, you may need to wear your glasses or contact lenses all the time, or only when you need distance vision, like driving, seeing a chalkboard or watching a movie. With myopia, your prescription is a negative number. The higher the numeral, the stronger your lenses will be. Refractive surgery can reduce or even eliminate your need for glasses or contacts. The most common procedures are performed with an excimer laser. In photorefractive keratectomy, or PRK, the laser removes a layer of corneal tissue, which flattens the cornea and allows light rays to focus closer to or even on the retina. In laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) ? the most common refractive procedure ? a flap is cut through the top of the cornea, a laser removes some corneal tissue, and then the flap is dropped back into place. Also, at Magrabi we provide the latest techniques to treat Myopia like LASEK and EPILASIK. You check our Vision Correction Corner and review the different options.
Hyperopia, or farsightedness, is a common vision problem, affecting about a fourth of the population. People with hyperopia can see distant objects very well, but have difficulty seeing objects that are up close.
Farsighted people sometimes have headaches or eyestrain, and may squint or feel fatigued when performing work at close range. If you get these symptoms while wearing your glasses or contact lenses, you may need an eye exam and a new prescription.
