Lasik Tunisia – Laser eye surgery in Tunisia

Lasik Tunisia: what is laser eye surgery?

The 100% laser Lasik operation is a surgical treatment for myopia of the eyes. It is a laser eye surgery that is intended to treat moderate and weak myopia. It is also recommended for the correction of hyperopia, presbyopia and astigmatism.

It is an extremely sophisticated, fully robotized, computer-assisted surgical procedure.

Lasik is a surgical procedure that has several advantages over other surgical procedures (speed, efficiency). It is considered a revolutionary technique in the treatment of myopia, so much so that it has become the reference technique in the field of refractive surgery, which explains its popularity.

How is the laser eye surgery performed in Tunisia?

The Lasik surgery in Tunisia lasts a few dozen seconds in total. It is done under local anesthesia, in two steps:

In the first step, the corneal flap is cut with a femtosecond laser.
In a second step, the deep layers are sculpted by laser. This is the step that allows the correction of the visual defect.

The surgeon begins by disinfecting the eyelids. He then places a suction ring on the eye to immobilize the eyeball.

Fully guided by computer, the femtosecond laser cuts the cornea and creates the corneal flap. The cutting process takes about 15 seconds. The suction ring is then removed.
Once the gas bubbles are evacuated, the corneal flap is lifted to allow the excimer laser to work. This step is totally secured by eye tracker systems that ensure perfect centering of the treatment. The flap is then put back in place and the eye is irrigated with serum. This promotes rapid healing.

The operation is virtually painless. Both eyes are operated on the same day, which allows for a very rapid visual rehabilitation.

Laser eye surgery in Tunisia: what you need to know before you start

The first step is the pre-operative check-up, which will include a series of examinations and X-rays. A consultation with the ophthalmic surgeon and the anesthesiologist must also be done a few days before the operation.

The surgeon will evaluate your exams and x-rays, ask you questions about your general health and discuss the risks, recovery time and cost of the procedure.

After the laser eye surgery in Tunisia

The after-effects of Lasik surgery are generally not painful or uncomfortable: some difficulty in opening the eyes, profuse tearing and a feeling of sand in the eyes are the most noticeable symptoms. But they rarely last more than 2 to 3 hours.

The improvement of the vision is quite fast (within 24 hours after the operation). The resumption of work can therefore be done after 1 to 2 days.

From the day after the operation, driving and working on the computer are allowed.

It is imperative to protect yourself from the sun and to avoid swimming in the sea or pool during the first 3 to 4 weeks.

A check-up with the ophthalmologist must be done the day after the operation.
