Too Sweet For Beverly Hills LASIK?

 

Some people from los angeles have high blood sugar. This is called Diabetes Mellitus. yes their blood is too sweet. As Shakespeare said rose is sweet by any other name. Can we still do LASIK? What is the best method to do the laser vision correction? Let one of Americas Top Eye Doctors answer that question.”Diabetes affects the pericytes of capillaries leading to fluid leakage changing the pericyte/ endothelium ratio.” says Rajesh Khanna, MD.” This leads to bleeding and ischemia rendering new vessels to proliferate. These factors can also affect the adhesion of epithelium to basement membrane.”

 

Dr. Khanna we are impressed with your geekspeak but can you translate into simple english for us mere mortals.

 

“I can do LASIK if Diabetes is mild and epithelium or the top covering of the cornea is taut. If it is loose we have to do superlasik. Anyways the Blood sugar should be under control, like below 200 and Haemoglobin HgB1 Ac should be below 7.”

 

Was it too difficult to speak in simple terms. LOL


LASIK VS THIN FLAP LASIK

OK, you have decided to have LASIK. Your dad had it 12 years ago for 1899/eye and now that LASIK center offers it for 999/eye. If it worked for your father it should work for you is what they say. But wait a minute… there was no facebook nor twitter than. Pentium 1 processors ruled the day and windows 2000 was ruling the day. We have moved on from pentium 1 to xeon and now windows 7 is here. The good news for your eyes is that LASIK has progressed too. First What is the full form of LASIK? LASER assisted intrastromal keratomilusis. LASER of course ┬ástands for light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation. In simple words in LASIK a flap is fashioned and everted. The exposed cornea is than modified by the laser. Now that is what we are going to talk about- the design and fashioning the LASIK flap.
