SEOUL, South Korea--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dr. Oh Jung Woo of EOS eye center released a surprising study that improves the safety of existing vision correction surgeries.
While the vision correction surgery has been operated for over three decades, the safety of refractive surgery is still doubtful.
Risks of LASIK include tearing of corneal flap and suction loss when the fixed part of the eyeball is loosened. LASEK has been an effective alternative for this problem, however, carrying out LASEK surgeries also demands at least 5 days for wound recovery, and is very painful due to damage on the epithelium after the surgery.
Dr. Oh’s six-year effort is especially highlighted in the factor analysis that minimizes the ablation amount. Proven by clinical outcomes, his new study also reduces the period of healing recovery up to two days as the range of damage of the corneal epithelium would be decreased only 40% the original method.
