What are LASIK vision correction operations?

In the eye with normal vision, the cornea precisely refracts the light on the retina in the back of the eye, but in cases of vision problems, the light is bent incorrectly, which leads to blurred vision, the corneal tissue is carefully removed in the LASIK process by a special type of laser to restore Shaping the cornea and changing its focal power, reshaping the cornea by laser provides the required refraction and this makes the vision clear.

Advantages of LASIK Operations

What are the defects of vision?


difficulty seeing details of distant objects, but seeing details of nearby objects is clear


Light gathers at several points on the retina and this causes blurred vision



Presbyopia begins to appear from the age of forty and there is difficulty in reading or working on a computer


Difficulty seeing details of nearby objects, but seeing details of distant objects is clear.


Advantages of LASIK operations

What are the conditions for LASIK operations?

Types of vision correction surgeries

  • 1- LASIK

    LASIK operation treats all degrees of myopia, farsightedness and astigmatism if the thickness of the cornea is appropriate.

  • 2- Superficial LASIK

    The superficial LASIK operation is suitable for patients who suffer from nearsightedness or farsightedness less than 4 degrees. Superficial LASIK is also suitable for patients with poor corneal thickness.

  • 3- Femto-LASIK

    The Femto-LASIK operation is suitable for patients who suffer from severe myopia. Femto-LASIK is also suitable for patients if the thickness of the cornea is thin.

  • 4- Femto Smile

    The femto smile is one of the latest and most efficient LASIK techniques and is suitable in these cases: ( The thickness of the cornea is weak. - High degree of corneal curvature. - The degree of myopia is high. - Low degree of astigmatism.)

  • 5- Detailed LASIK

    Detailed LASIK is performed if the cornea is convex in some places and irregularly flat in some places. Basic criteria for determining the best vision correction process ( The patient's age. - Corneal thickening. - Corneal examination. - Eye size).

Basic criteria for determining the best vision correction process

  • 1. The patient's age.

  • 2. Corneal thickening.

  • 3. Corneal examination.

  • 4. Eye size.

Necessary examinations before LASIK operations


To determine the defects of vision, do you suffer from short-sightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism? Will LASIK be appropriate or inappropriate?

Corneal imaging (Pentacam)

To determine whether LASIK is suitable for your condition or is LASIK not appropriate? If LASIK is suitable, what type of LASIK is appropriate for your condition?

Visual acuity examination

Without glasses and with glasses or contact lenses to determine the expected strength of vision after LASIK procedure.


To determine the size of the pupil, especially in the dark, the larger size of the pupil increases the chances of seeing glare and light halos after LASIK surgery.

Map of visual abnormalities

To identify the problems of the visual system and to discover any high deviations in the corneal surface that could cause serious complications if LASIK was performed.

Dry eye

To ensure the quality and quantity of the fluid covering the eye, and in case of dehydration, it must be treated before the operation.

Corneal curvature measurement

The high elevation is due to the presence of keratoconus.

Measuring the thickness of the cornea

The decrease in the thickness of the cornea is a reason not to perform LASIK.

Measuring intraocular pressure

high intraocular pressure is a reason not to perform LASIK.

Fundus examination

To see the condition of the retina and optic nerve.

Important instructions before LASIK operations

  • 1. Stop wearing contact lenses two weeks before the operation.

  • 2. Avoid applying any cosmetics before the operation.

  • 3. Clean the face and eyes well before the operation.

  • 4. Avoid putting any perfume before the operation.

  • 5. Sleeping enough before the operation to rest the eye.

LASIK procedure steps

  • 1. Putting an anesthetic solution in the eye.

  • 2. Using a scalpel with a very thin edge called a (microkeratome), to make a circular cut on the surface layer of the cornea.

  • 3. Using an excimer laser to modify the shape of the cornea from the inside. This step lasts for a few seconds, depending on the degree of vision adjustment.

  • 4. Return the thin layer, which is the outer surface of the cornea, to its normal place.

Important instructions after LASIK operations

  • 1. Not using cosmetics for at least two weeks.

  • 2. Avoid using swimming pools and saunas for at least two months.

  • 3. Avoid washing the affected eye for at least three days.

  • 4. Not exercising for 2 to 3 days.

  • 5. Wear sunglasses for several days after the operation.

  • 7. Avoid driving after the operation.

  • 8. Follow up with the doctor.

LASIK results

The latest devices in the world of ophthalmology

  • Teneo 317
  • Pentacam
  • CSO Sirius+

Teneo 317

Teneo 317 is considered one of the latest and best LASIK devices available in the world now, especially in the Middle East.

Teneo 317 has a superior ability to correct the greatest extent of myopia while preserving the corneal tissue.

Teneo 317 is characterized by its ability to correct nearsightedness up to 14 degrees, farsightedness up to 7 degrees, and correct astigmatism up to 7 degrees.

Teneo 317 enables you to obtain high-quality vision through HD Vision LASIK technology or by custom LASIK.

Teneo 317 provides Supracor technology, which corrects short- and far-sightedness at the same time.

Teneo 317 is used with the femto-laser device in the femto-lasik process to obtain the advantages of the two devices simultaneously.

PRK surgery can be performed through Teneo 317, and the PRK surgery is suitable for cases of weak cornea and is also suitable for people who do hard work or engage in violent sports, also the PRK surgery is suitable for applicants to the police college or military colleges.

Teneo 317 is produced by a leading German company in the field of eye surgeries called Bausch & Lomp

Teneo 317 is characterized by speed and accuracy.

Available at Barrada Eye Center branch in Luxor.


The device is one of the devices that are used in the most important examinations that must be performed before vision correction operations.

The device measures the characteristics of the cornea, as it takes 25 internal and external images of the eye and provides a complete analysis of the cornea and the lens of the eye to ensure that the eye health is in the normal range, and also determines the most appropriate operation for the patient. The device helps in the early detection of keratoconus.

The device has an important role in the discovery of eye diseases and the discovery of keratoconus diseases.

Through the device, we can identify the degree of thickness of the cornea.

Through the pentacam device, we can discover the surface of the cornea and know the state of the corneal surface.

The device helps us to discover the surface of the cornea from the back, because there are some diseases of the keratoconus that do not appear on the front surface.

Through the pentacam device, we can examine the anterior chamber in the eye to see if there is a possibility to implant lenses or not.

Available at the Barrada Eye Center branch in Cairo.

CSO Sirius+

CSO Sirius+ combines two methods of capturing corneal images, which are the two most accurate and widespread methods globally, unlike other devices that take images in one way.

CSO Sirius+ provides accurate and important information about the topography of the inner and outer cornea and detects the degree of thickness of the cornea.

CSO Sirius+ provides a precise tomographic image of the cornea, and this allows determining the depth of light superficial corneal fibrosis for laser removal.

CSO Sirius+ can be used to make an accurate comparison between new tests and previous ones.

CSO Sirius+ also detects any corneal indentations that cannot be seen with the naked eye.

CSO Sirius+ detects keratoconus early, before clinical symptoms appear on the patient.

CSO Sirius+ is used in the examinations that take place before the implantation of lenses.

CSO Sirius+ provides a special examination for glaucoma ("glaucoma disease").

Available at Barrada Eye Center branch in Luxor.

We Have Great Answers

Ask Us Anything

LASIK surgery is an alternative to glasses. If the strength of vision in glasses before the operation was 6/6 after the operation, the power of vision would be 6/6.

LASIK complications are becoming rare after the great advances in technology.

The answer to this question is clear after conducting the examinations and determined by the specialist doctor according to the way of life and other factors.
