Signs You Might Need Femto-LASIK

Changes in vision and a decline in visual acuity are a natural part of the aging process. Most people begin to notice changes after the age of 40, and it is estimated that one in five require reading glasses or bifocals. For people who have always enjoyed 20/20 vision or reached adulthood without ocular problems or the need for corrective lenses or glasses, age-related changes to vision can be something of a lifestyle adjustment.

At Beverly Hills Medical Center of Kuwait, our ophthalmology experts advise that all patients over the age of 40 schedule a comprehensive yearly eye exam, whether they’re experiencing symptoms or changes in vision or not. Natural changes and decline in visual acuity can begin to take effect before symptoms become prominent, and patients should not wait until they experience blurry vision or have trouble focusing on objects at a distance.

Signs You Need Femto-LASIK Kuwait

Is Femto-LASIK in Kuwait Right For You?

Femto-LASIK is a bladeless, refractive eye surgery that reshapes the cornea to correct some of the most common vision problems in adults who no longer wish to rely on contact lenses or glasses. In the case of adults suddenly faced with the need for corrective lenses for the first time, Femto-LASIK allows them to skip that step altogether in most cases.

Femto-LASIK is a relatively quick and pain-free outpatient procedure that offers patients results almost immediately. Femto-LASIK might be a good choice for you if you meet any of the following conditions:

You are Nearsighted

Nearsightedness, also known as myopia, is the inability to get a clear focus on distant objects. Everything from driving a car (especially at night) to enjoying a movie at the theatre can be affected by myopia. Common symptoms include:

  • Frequent squinting
  • Inability to focus on objects at a distant
  • Headaches and eyestrain
  • Excessive blinking

You are Farsighted

With farsightedness, also known as hyperopia, objects at a distant appear in clear focus, but near or close objects appear blurry or difficult to distinguish. This condition often appears at birth and can be hereditary. The eyestrain-related symptoms for farsightedness are similar to those of myopia, but occur from activities such as the following:

  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Drawing
  • Working on a computer

You Have Astigmatism

Astigmatism is a corneal irregularity that can cause blurriness at all distances and directions. Common signs of astigmatism include headaches, eyestrain, and blurred vision.

Femto-LASIK can help patients retain their quality of life and continue to enjoy their preferred daily hobbies and activities without the hassle or added expense of corrective lenses.
