LASIK, the latest generation in LASIK eye surgery technology, has been approved by the FDA in October 2021. This new LASIK procedure is an extremely precise surgical procedure, enabling nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism and other vision impairments to be treated with a simple surgery. As LASIK only requires a small incision, it has the ability to offer optimal results for all patient types. LASIK class 4 laser is one of the most advanced and versatile lasers in the world, offering the ideal laser surgery solution for all patients wishing to undergo this laser vision correction procedure. To this end, the following information will describe the various classes of LASIK available to the surgeon in order to best meet the unique needs of the individual.
How To Learn What’s The Difference Between Class Iv Laser Treatment And Class 4 Laser Treatment?
Class 1 laser therapy is usually reserved for patients suffering from mild to moderate astigmatism. This type of LASIK class 4 laser therapy offers immediate post-operative pain relief and increases recovery time after surgery. This class of LASIK laser therapy uses a single low-energy pulse to correct corneal irregularities during the process of LASIK surgery. As a result, there is increased depth of vision with reduced glare and pain following treatment.
A different type of LASIK class IV laser method called photobiomodulation (PBM) is often combined with LASIK in order to provide a more complete vision correction solution. Photobiomodulation uses light beams or pulses of light to stimulate photoreceptors in the eye such that they become active and excrete neurotransmitters such as serotonin in the eye and increase visual comfort. It is ideal for people who have pain caused by eye inflammation or disease, as well as for those who experience pain due to eye aging. This treatment option is often recommended for individuals who want to correct their astigmatism using LASIK but who do not suffer from chronic pain.
