Laser eye surgery (LASIK) is a form of treatment for short-sight, long-sight and astigmatism. At Nuffield Health Derby Hospital, our expert Ophthalmologists perform a range of laser eye surgery treatments.

This is done by reshaping the cornea (the transparent front part of the eye) using the excimer laser.

LASIK involves cutting a flap in the cornea, lifting the flap and applying the laser treatment underneath, then replacing the flap and allowing the eye to heal.

LASEK or Advanced Surface Ablation is a less invasive method of laser treatment in which the epithelial cells (surface layer) of the cornea are moved gently to one side, the laser is applied directly to the exposed corneal surface and then the epithelial cells are replaced to form a protective layer while the cornea heals.

SMILE (SMall Incision Lenticule Extaction) is the very latest, 3rd generation, laser eye surgery technique used to treat short-sightedness, with or without astigmatism. This treatment is available in only a few laser eye surgery clinics in the UK.

Presbyond is a laser procedure designed to offer presbyopia patients an effective alternative to reading glasses. The treatment uses spherical aberration to give the patient a good blend of vision that ranges from near to distant, eliminating the need for spectacles and enabling the patient to comfortably handle most visual tasks.

This presbyopia correction procedure is suitable for most presbyopia sufferers. Even if you have cataracts, you will normally be able to undergo Presbyond treatment once the cataracts have been removed.
