JAKARTA – Many treatment and medication options for various eye problems. One of them is LASIK, which stands for Laser Assisted In-Situ Keratomileusis.
LASIK itself is a type of surgery that is very effective with predictable results. According to global statistical data compiled by Seed Scientific, the success rate for LASIK worldwide has reached 98%.
The LASIK procedure itself is performed to cure eye refractive errors such as myopia, hypermetropia, and astigmatism. Through this procedure, people who have vision problems can let go of their dependence on glasses and contact lenses.
LASIK technology itself is even considered to be one of the important achievements in the world of health. In the United States alone, at least 10 million LASIK procedures have been performed since this procedure first received approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1999.
In Indonesia alone we can find several eye specialist clinics or hospitals that have LASIK procedure options, one of which is KMN EyeCare.
Even though it has been proven effective as a measure to treat vision problems, not everyone who has refractive errors can undergo this procedure. Consultation and a series of patient examinations are needed to determine whether a person can undergo LASIK.
For patients who are diagnosed as unable to undergo LASIK, doctors will recommend other types of treatment that are more appropriate.
One of the highlights is that, although it is classified as a surgical procedure, the LASIK procedure itself does not involve a scalpel or anesthesia. This process, which only takes 10 to 15 minutes of action, is painless.
For the cost itself, in Indonesia LASIK procedures range from IDR 10 million to IDR 25 million.
