TEMLA – No touch laser eye surgery FAQs
The excimer laser is an ultraviolet laser working at the wavelength of 193 nanometers. It is a phenomenally accurate cutting tool with sub-micron precision. Each pulse of the laser removes ¼ of 1 micron of tissue (1 micron = 1 millionth of a millimeter). The excimer laser gently reshapes the cornea bringing rays of light to focus on the retina.
Generally, trans epi is performed on candidates who are over 18 years old and have healthy corneas. Also one must have not had a significant increase in their spectacle prescription in the last 12 months. We recommend that you wait till you’re 18 years old and consult a surgeon.
The primary goal of refractive surgery is not to give you perfect vision, but to reduce your dependence on visual aids. So after, trans epi, you can expect your dependence on contact lenses and glasses to decrease.
Every patient’s vision improves after trans epi, though to differing degrees depending upon the initial spectacle or contact lens correction. Overall, 95% of patients achieve 6/12 vision, which means they can drive legally, play sport and join the services without glasses.
Don’t be misled by various excimer advertisements proposing that you would be able to throw away your glasses. Patients with high initial correction may require reading glasses or a thin pair of glasses for activities such as night driving. We urge you to look at trans epi not as a route to perfect eyesight, but as a procedure that reduces your dependence on glasses or contact lenses.
Since the early 1980s, excimer laser procedure has been practiced in many countries worldwide. It has also formed the basis of many clinical studies, conducted to study the long term effects of this procedure. All of these studies have come up with the same conclusion – that there are no long-term effects of excimer laser on the integrity of the eye.
Since 2000, trans epi is the most frequently performed surgery in the entire field of medicine, having been performed on over one million patients. Not one of these operations has ever resulted in a case of blindness.
No, it is not. Post-operatively, you may feel a slight grittiness in the eyes, which may last for a few hours.
Usually, you can be back at your desk, and perform your routine tasks, just 24 hours after the procedure. However, there are a few other activities that need to be carried out with some care.
Your vision may fluctuate for a few days after surgery. You may notice some glare around lights at night. Your vision in the evening will not be as sharp as your vision during the day. However, these are temporary and usually pass with time
The effect is permanent.
There are two laser procedures used to correct refractive errors – prk and lasik. These procedures differ vastly. In prk, the procedure is done through the surface of the cornea, while in lasik surgery it is performed under the protection of a flap of corneal tissue, which can give you flap related complications.
