ULTRALASIK EYE SURGERY
Much like regular LASIK in Dubai treatment, however with slight differences. Ultralasik, just like LASIK involves the re-shaping of the corneal tissue for enhanced visual acuity however, the flap that is cut out from the cornea is typically thinner than normal. This option has faster recovery time as well as much less complications and risks; which is probably why it has been deemed as the most effective procedure to be done on US astronauts.

This is possibly one of the lesser known problems linked to eye health (1 in every 2,000), however is still a problem nonetheless. Keratoconus is a disease that directly affects the cornea. The middle of the cornea begins to deteriorate and weaken, and this effect causes the sides of the cornea to bulge out. This results in the cornea adapting to a cone-like shape, which is not only a hindrance to visual acuity, but is also drastically out of line with regular eye proportions. Thankfully, there are treatments available such as cross-linking (CXL) and the insertion of contact lenses (ICL) to rectify this issue which we have at New Vision Eye Center.
