Ultralasik is the optimization of all the technologies used in the laser surgery process. It is the combination of a cut made by a state-of-the-art laser and a personalized custom laser treatment.
The quality of your vision depends on the shape of your eye. If the eye’s curvature is misshapen, the result is lack of focus. This must be mitigated with optical correction such as glasses or contact lenses. Ultralasik surgery helps to correct, to the closest micrometre, imperfections in the shape of the eye by pulverizing the thin layers of cells on the surface of the cornea.
Ultralasik surgery can correct myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism. Ultralasik surgery is the latest laser treatment with the shortest recovery time. A cut made by a laser allows the surgeon to lift the surface of the eye and the laser is applied to the underlying layer of the cornea. PRK surgery involves surface laser ablation, which could be an alternative when Ultralasik surgery is contraindicated.
At the IRIS Ophthalmology Clinic, we have the latest SCHWIND AMARIS 750S laser. For a “Wow” effect, thanks to Smart Pulse technology, this laser boasts an ablation speed that is two to three times faster than traditional technologies, with a very short treatment time for virtually immediate vision recovery.
