State Of The Art Laser Vision Correction - LASIK and PRK

Laser vision correction is a highly successful method of correcting myopia, hypermetropia and astigmatism. Millions of patients worldwide have undergone this treatment to free themselves of glasses and contact lenses. There are two forms of refractive laser eye surgery: LASIK and PRK. Both techniques use precise computer controlled excimer laser pulses to reshape the surface of the cornea and correct its focusing power.


In LASIK a thin superficial corneal flap is created and lifted to expose the underlying corneal tissue. Laser treatment is applied to the inside of the cornea and the flap is then replaced and allowed to heal. Visual recovery is fast and discomfort is minimal. PRK is a surface procedure where the top layer of the cornea (epithelium) is removed and laser treatment is applied to the underlying corneal surface. Visual recovery is slightly longer while the epithelium is allowed to regenerate.

Wavefront Technology

Wavefront technology is an adjunct tool used to enhance an already effective procedure. Wavefront scanning creates a detailed optical map of the eye highlighting individual imperfections and distortions.
A powerful software then transforms this information into a customized treatment guiding the laser and performing a personalized correction of the refractive errors and the finer higher order aberrations. This technology has been shown to provide better results


than conventional treatments and offers patients a sharper and crisper vision.

At the Beirut Eye Clinic we offer customized refractive laser vision correction for myopia, hypermetropia and astigmatism using the latest wavefront-coupled excimer laser technology thus ensuring the most accurate treatment delivery and the best quality of vision for our patients.

Argon Laser Treatments

Argon laser is green light focused on the retina to create a microscopic burn with the aim to kill sick tissue or create an adhesion between the retina and underlying choroid. At the Beirut Eye Clinic we use


argon laser photocoagulation extensively to treat retinal vascular diseases such as diabetic retinopathy and retinal vein occlusion and to seal retinal breaks to prevent retinal detachment.

YAG Laser Treatments

Neodymium-YAG laser is used to treat posterior capsular opacification, a condition that may occur after cataract surgery. This procedure known as YAG laser capsulotomy clears the visual axis by removing the centre of the hazy posterior capsule safely, effectively and painlessly. YAG laser is also used to treat certain types of glaucoma by creating iridotomies, thus


changing the configuration of the iris and improving drainage of the intraocular fluid.

All laser treatments are carried out in a specialised unit with the support of a fully trained team of nurses, optometrists and technicians.
