What is Advanced Surface Ablation?
Advanced surface ablation (ASA), a variant of LASEK, can eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses by correcting short-sightedness (myopia), long-sightedness (hypermetropia) and astigmatism.
The visual recovery following ASA is slightly slower than with LASIK or SMILE; it is therefore carried out when LASIK or SMILE are not indicated, such as in thin corneas or corneas with a medical condition such as keratoconus and prior scarring.
What are the benefits of Advanced Surface Ablation?
An active lifestyle without the hassle of glasses or contact lenses
No contact lens risks
It can be applied to the correction of complex and irregular refractive prescriptions
It can be combined with collagen cross-linking if you have keratoconus
