If you’re one of the millions who wear glasses or have had them for many years, you may wonder if there’s a way to get rid of them permanently. The answer is yes!
There are several advanced techniques available today that can help you achieve perfect vision without glasses. The most popular and widely used procedures are LASIK, LASEK, ICL, C3R, and RELEX SMILE. Each of these procedures works in a different way to permanently correct your vision so that you never have to wear glasses again.
Causes of Poor Vision
Poor vision can be primarily attributed to hereditary factors. It is important for individuals to be aware of their family history of vision problems such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), astigmatism, and colour blindness. Knowing this history can help determine which vision disorder an individual may be more prone to and allow them to take preventative measures to reduce any potential effects.
Traditional Methods of Vision Correction
Several traditional glass removal methods have been proven effective. LASIK (Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis) is one of the more popular vision correction methods. During this procedure, a laser is used to reshape your cornea, which helps people with refractive errors normalise their eye power. Studies have shown that about nine out of ten people with LASIK get a vision that is between 20/20 and 20/40 without the use of glasses or contact lenses.
Another traditional method of vision correction is called LASEK, which stands for laser subepithelial keratomileusis. During this procedure, the laser is directed underneath the epithelial layer of the eye to reshape the cornea.
For those who do not qualify for LASIK, there is a revolutionary technique that aids in vision correction called ICL, or Implantable Collamer Lens. During ICL, an artificial lens is placed inside the eye to help correct vision. This procedure is more involved and carries more risk, but it can still be an effective method of vision correction for those who are not eligible for LASIK.
VOZ & SAFE A New Technique
The newest innovative Laser surgery for vision correction, called Refractive Lenticule Extraction (ReLEx) or Small Incision Lenticule Extraction (SMILE) utilises a technique called Variable Optic Zone (VOZ) to treat various areas of the cornea. VOZ works by utilising the concept of minimal tissue consumption depending on the size of your pupil. With the use of modern technology, such as the Scheimpflug Imaging System, which uses a special type of laser light for accuracy, the size of the pupil is measured under different lighting conditions.
This data is then utilised to decide the amount of tissue in the cornea that needs to be treated by Laser. It uses special software to do the necessary calculations to treat tissue, depending on the size of the pupil, so as to avoid photic phenomena such as glare and halos. This innovation has revolutionised the way we treat vision correction as it is tailored to each individual’s needs.
SAFE (Shearing Applied Force Extraction) is a technique used in modern LASIK lasers such as Refractive Lenticule Extraction (ReLEx) and Small Incision Lenticule Extraction (SMILE) to help minimise the amount of inflammation to the cornea and aid in rapid healing with a rapid visual recovery. This method also eliminates the need for blades and flaps making the surgery painless and reducing the overall procedure time. Those undergoing laser treatment for their vision can resume their regular activities almost immediately after the procedure.
Lifestyle Changes to Maintain Good Eye Health
Good vision is crucial for leading a happy and productive life. Unfortunately, the lifestyles of many people today have caused vision-related problems to be increasingly common. Even though lifestyle changes cannot correct vision, it is an important factor in maintaining eye health.
Eating Nutritious Food
A healthy diet can provide key vitamins and minerals needed to keep the eyes healthy. A balanced diet and getting essential nutrients can help reduce the risk of developing various eye conditions. Omega-3 fatty acids found in fish, nuts, and certain fruits and vegetables can have a positive effect on eye health. Eating healthy foods can also help improve vision and prevent further damage to eyesight. Further, leafy greens such as spinach, kale, and collard greens contain lutein and zeaxanthin, which can help protect the eyes against damage from ultraviolet light. Additionally, antioxidants found in colourful fruits and vegetables can help to prevent damage to the eyes from free radicals.
Regular Eye Exercise
Proper eye exercises can help improve focus, reduce eye strain and maintain good eye health. Exercises such as looking away from the monitor for a few seconds every 15 minutes, blinking regularly, and rotating the eyes in a clockwise and counterclockwise direction can all help improve eye health. Additionally, focusing on distant objects every once in a while helps keep the eye muscles activated. Focusing regularly on objects such as a pen or pencil helps to relax the eye muscles and prevents them from straining. Further, focusing on near and far objects alternately helps to improve the eyes’ ability to focus.
Going for Regular Eye Checkups
If you have a family history of vision problems, getting your eye checked at a regular interval can prove beneficial. It is recommended to get an eye exam every two years, or as recommended by your eye care professional. During the check-up, a comprehensive examination of the eyes is performed to detect any eye conditions or diseases. Regular eye screenings can help detect any potential problems before they become more serious.
It is possible to get rid of glasses with vision correction techniques such as VOZ and SAFE. These techniques involve changes in lifestyle, dietary modifications, and the use of specialised tools to improve one’s vision naturally. With commitment and consistency, individuals can improve their vision and reduce or eliminate their dependence on glasses.
