ak IOL procedures are being used on severely nearsighted and farsighted patients who may not be candidates for the more common laser procedures such as PRK, LASEK, and LASIK. However, unlike laser vision correction procedures that permanently change your vision, it is possible to remove ak IOLs.

  • 非常近视或远视,还没有老花眼
  • 拥有稳定的眼科处方至少一年
  • 没有影响眼睛的健康问题

手术当天会发生什么

您将在手术前大约一个小时到达手术中心。一旦您被检查了,您可能会得到镇静剂以帮助您放松。然后,您将准备进行手术。将清洁眼睛周围的区域,并在眼睛周围涂抹无菌盖布。强大的眼药水或局部麻醉药将使您的眼睛麻木。当眼睛完全麻木时,将在眼睑之间放置一个眼睑支架,以防止您在手术过程中眨眼。

接下来,将做一个非常小的切口,然后将人工晶状体插入。小切口将利用您眼睛的自然向外压力将自身粘合在一起,而无需缝合。 ak IOL程序非常快,通常只需不到20分钟。恢复时间也很短。手术的结果几乎是立竿见影的,但是麻醉后您的视线可能会有些模糊,因此需要有人将您送回家。您应该在一天的剩余时间里放松一下。您可能会感到不适,但是通常可以通过非处方止痛药缓解。大多数患者在一两天内恢复正常活动。
