Scleral Lenses For Post-LASIK, Post-PRK, And Post-RK Surgery In Lee's Summit, Missouri
About LASIK & Post LASIK Ectasia
As a whole, LASIK or laser vision correction is safe and effective. Most LASIK surgeons today use corneal topographers to map the cornea and measure its thickness to ensure better results from any laser vision correction.
While the prospects are good for LASIK candidates, eye complications can — and continue to — occur, such as post-LASIK ectasia, a corneal distortion or irregularity that causes the cornea to weaken and bulge.
Those with surgery complications develop vision problems which cannot be fully corrected using glasses or soft contact lenses, as the shape of their eye cause the lenses to easily dislodge. For those people, scleral lenses offer a more comfortable, secure fit and improved vision.
