What is myopia? Myopia is a situation where the curvature of the eye is too strong and images are focused in front of the retina instead of on it.
It’s known that clear substances with flexure have the optic properties. And the eye cornea is not an exception. Its own optical power can vary from 40 to 46 diopters.
Almost all technologies of myopia correction with the help of refractive surgery are based on making the cornea surface more flat so that it will reduce its optic power allowing images to focus on the eye retina again, instead of in front of it.
There are different ways to correct vision and when choosing a corrective eye surgery, you should choose one that is as delicate as possible to reduce the chance of post-surgery complications.
Vision quality after laser correction is directly connected with the smoothness of the cornea’s surface after treatment. However, most of the surgeries leave microscopic roughness.
A common problem is that the edges of the surgery area are left rough. In these cases the cornea distorts when it’s dark or when there is limited light and can cause the “halo effect” around objects, especially lights. This roughness can also cause dark spots in vision.
The Russian device Profile-500 makes the cornea flat with a special wide beam. Each impulse of the wide beam removes a thin lens from the optic zone of the cornea. The number of lenses removed determines the final refractive effect.
Corrective surgeries with the profile-500 don’t require clips and lock rings, no cornea cuts are done, nothing is touching the eye, only the blepharostat should be fixed to avoid blinking during the surgery. Therefore, mistakes are eliminated and so are any possible future post surgery complications.
Profile-500 surgery leaves the cornea surface as smooth as it was before the surgery and it’s impossible to recognize the surgery area edge after 3-4 months. This is achieved with a special energy distribution in the laser beam in which maximum intensity is used in the middle of the cornea and the lasers intensity fades towards the corneas edges.
Myopia treatment with the Profile – 500 technology gives you excellent vision and minimizes the chance of possible complications.
