In vision correction, the varieties of laser eye surgery are BMT, BMJ, LASIK, and CR. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages. Finding the best surgeon for your desired procedure depends on how you choose to define the perfect vision correction for you. However, in this article, we will talk about some of the benefits and disadvantages associated with each type of laser eye surgery.
BMT (Bovine Massage Tool)
This type of laser eye surgery has been around since 1996. It quickly became the standard of the day due to the excellent results it delivers. However, as technology advanced, the new generations of lasers also allowed a new technique to be explored: BMJ (Brain-map judder).
This new technology not only brings about a cleaner vision but also brings about significant improvements in the way people view the world. This procedure takes some of the strain off of the eye’s ability to focus and see properly.
BMJ is a novel procedure that allows the surgeon to perform a highly precise surgical procedure on the surface of the eye without the use of a traditional scalpel. A ring of laser is arrayed around the center of the cornea and as it passes through, it damages the outer layer of the eye, which shortens the focal distance.
Patients report a significant improvement in their vision just after the procedure is completed. While this surgery might not seem like a great option for people who have trouble seeing at night, there are many people who have trouble seeing at night. BMJ not only improves night vision, but it also helps physicians identify if there are any other vision problems that might be causing blurry vision. When there are other vision problems, BMJ can be used to correct them.
LASIK is the most common type of laser eye surgery and is used continually to reshape the cornea. As with other types of surgery, LASIK does have its share of potential problems and does not always result in a perfectly accurate result. When the patient’s vision is not quite optimal, LASIK can be used to make the necessary corrections. LASIK is an elective, but it is quite common for people to have this surgery performed to improve their eyesight and to eliminate glasses or contacts.
PRK ( polls or finger plantar keratomileusis)
This is also known as secondarily laser corneal laser surgery and is a similar procedure to LASIK. It uses a laser to cut a flap in the cornea in order to reshape it. The cut flap is left to heal, but it can’t heal in its entire state until the stroma is healed as well.
This creates a flap of cut tissue that the surgeon uses to reshape the cornea. Unlike LASIK, patients do not have to wear anything during this procedure. It is a quick and relatively painless procedure, but there is some risk that arises from the fact that the treated eye may develop a corneal haze. Side effects typically diminish with time.
This procedure was the first laser eye surgery that was developed using a laser. Paryrmal laser has since replaced the conventional lasers used for laser eye surgery. Magenta laser is a similar procedure that causes the death of unhealthy tissue around the cornea of the eye.
These laser eye surgery procedures are used to correct different vision anomalies. It can be used to treat astigmatism, myopia, farsightedness, and hyperopia. Keratomileusis is a procedure that reshapes the cornea by removing small amounts of tissue from a thin surface in the cornea. LASIK and PRK are more precise forms of laser eye surgery that can be used to correct more complicated vision anomalies.
