ReLEx Smile Questions

Watery eyes, itching, aching, having difficulties in reading, blurry vision, squinting, headaches are the main indicators of eye disorders.

Our main aim is to provide the same quality of vision that you have with your glasses. The results 0,5 and below are considered as successful and the patient does not need to use glasses or lenses anymore. Laser treatment is the best when performed in a stable period (1 year) in terms of eye prescription. If the patient’s eye number increases when the procedure is done, it may continue to increase after too.

After having i-LASIK and LASIK methods that require a corneal flap, you may feel pain, aching or burning sensation for 6 hours. Whereas in LASEK or PRK methods where flap is not made but corneal tissue is scraped and folded, you can have pain for 2-3 days. In order to reduce this pain it is recommended to use protective contact lenses.

It is normal to have dry eyes for some time after the surgery and it is recommended to use artificial tear drops for this dryness. Within time this problem will disappear naturally and you will not have to use drops anymore.

Laser surgeries can very well fix astigmatism, along with myopia and hypermetropia.

In laser treatments the main aim is to decrease the vision acuity number to – / + 0,50. 6 months after your procedure, if there is still a higher acuity number, you can have the treatment again after an examination to see if you still have enough thickness of cornea, with the help of pachymetry, orbscan and corneal topography. If you are suitable to have another surgery, your surgeon will not make a new flap, but use the old incision where your first flap was made.

After your consultation, your doctor will recommend you the best method suitable for you, based on your corneal thickness and shape.
