What's the difference between LASIK and SuperSight?
In patients who are in their 50s or older, the question often comes up whether to correct vision by LASIK or by SuperSight Surgery. LASIK involves reshaping the outer side of the cornea with an extremely precise laser beam and does not enter into the inside of the eye. SuperSight Surgery, on the other hand, the lens of the eye, which sits inside the eye behind the pupil, becomes dysfunctional, the only treatment we currently have is to go inside the eye surgically and remove the lens. A clear plastic replacement lens called the “implant” is then inserted permanently inside the eye in place of the natural lens. The patient’s prescription can be built into this implant so that the vision can be corrected at the time of surgery, which is an extra benefit. Certainly, when someone has a cataract, this is the best way to handle the situation.
