    Are you looking for experienced Injury solicitors in Kilwinning? If you have had an accident that was not your fault in the last three years, you may be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim. You can do this after being injured in any type of accident, including one involving a medical practitioner. injury solicitors deal with all types of personal injury claims. Over the past few years they are increasingly dealing with laser eye surgery accidents.

    What is laser eye surgery?

    Laser eye surgery is a surgical technique that corrects eyesight and reduces or eliminates the need for wearing glasses.

    The type of technique used depends on the problem the surgeon is trying to correct. Usually a laser is used to reshape the cornea. Laser can be used to correct myopia (short sightedness), hypermetropia (long sightedness) and astigmatism. Surgery should only be carried out by specialist trained ophthalmologists

    Types of laser eye surgery

    LASIK

    LASIK is the most common type of laser eye procedure in the UK, though it is unsuitable for high prescriptions. LASIK involves the cornea being cut to raise a flap of tissue and the exposed surface is reshaped.

    Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK)

    PRK is an older technique where the cornea is reshaped without a flap of tissue being cut.

    LASEK

    LASEK is similar to PRK but involves the surface layer of the cornea being retained as a flap.

    Wavefront-guided LASIK

    This technique reduces the naturally occurring irregularities of the eye and improves the result of the LASIK surgery.

    Risks of laser eye surgery

    As with any type of surgery, laser eye surgery does carry a small degree of risk. Possible complications and risks should be explained to you by your surgeon.

    Some problems include:

    • Dry eyes
    • Glare or halo effect whilst driving at night
    • Loss of vision
    • Worsening of eyesight
    • Infection
