Do you have any problem in your eyes that needs eye surgery to be done?
Ophthalmology seems to have done a great lot of innovation in eye surgery as a surgical method of treatment.
It has to pass as a revolution in ophthalmology.
Looks like every single problem of eye and eyesight will be taken care with the help of surgery only, in the coming future.
But is it really so?
What do you think?
Come, let's investigate.
One of the most important things for performing any surgical procedure of ophthalmology correctly and successfully is the eye surgery equipment.

In the past few years, eye laser surgery has become a popular alternative to eyeglasses and contact lenses. It has three main types.
PRK is performed with local anesthetic eye drops. PRK surgery reshapes the cornea by removing microscopic amounts of tissue from the outer surface with a cool, computer-controlled ultraviolet beam of light.
LASIK eye surgery is more complex than PRK. LASIK is done for greater degrees of refractive errors. It uses a knife called microkeratome to cut a flap of corneal tissue, removes the tissue beneath with laser, and then replaces the flap.
The Excimer laser is a cool laser that does not heat up the surrounding surface of the eye.
With custom (wavefront) LASIK, your eye's ability to focus light rays is measured, and a 3-D map is created taking care of all the irregularities and correcting them which LASIK, till now, was not able to do.
In bladeless LASIK an additional laser instead of a blade (microkeratome) is used to create the flap in front of the eye. The IntraLase method eliminates the need to use a blade at all.
The plastic inserts named Intacs corneal inserts are being used to correct corneal bulging (keratoconus) these days.
Then there are some more questions that are to be dealt with before you decide to go for one of the procedures, like: Is eye laser surgery safe?, or Eye laser surgery complications, or Eye laser surgery cost versus Cost of LASIK eye surgery, or else Recovery from eye surgery etc. etc.
In cataract surgery many different procedures have been developed to remove cataracts.
A surgical eye implant - a 3mm wide chip fitting behind retina - named a bionic eye, is in the process of being researched and developed which, one day, might enable the blind to see with a visual acuity of 20/80. Great news!
Once we go deep into the pros and cons of all these procedures of eye surgery one by one, we'll be better equipped to assess them as to their validity or invalidity as far as the total eye health is concerned.

Let's wait and study deep till then! But in the meantime we do have in vision therapy a strong non-surgical contender of the surgical procedures mentioned above with all their side effects, risks, complications, reversibility, long duration recovery problems and high costs involved; and so it does deserve a fair try to it.
