Zyoptix HD LASIK System in Dubai
Your eyes are just as unique as your fingerprints. Their unique shape and complex characteristics require an individualized treatment that is customized for you in order to achieve outstanding results.
Dr. Ashraf takes this individuality into account by using the Technolas Zyoptix™ HD System for personalized laser vision correction at our Dubai LASIK clinic, to provide patients with drastically-improved vision and a new level of precision and clarity.
What Does the Zyoptix HD System Do?
The Zyoptix HD system maps thousands of data points, which provides Dr. Ashraf with a detailed, 3-D picture of your cornea’s shape and characteristics, enabling him to develop a unique treatment for each eye and resulting truly personalized vision correction.
How Does Zyoptix Enhance LASIK?
Vision impairments can also affect your LASIK procedure. Small imperfections in the shape of your eye can cause a scattering of light that may contribute to vision impairment. This scattering creates distinct patterns within the eye called aberrations. The innovative design of the Zyoptix HD personalized laser vision correction system allows Dr. Ashraf to measure these aberrations, and craft a treatment plan that exactly matches and treats your unique vision errors.
The Zyoptix system has been providing clear and accurate LASIK surgery results since 2000. The new advanced Zyoptix HD system delivers even better results than the previous generation of laser vision correction technologies. In fact, during a U.S. clinical trial, outcomes were so successful that not one patient among those expressing an opinion was dissatisfied with the results.
Frequently Asked Questions About Zyoptix Laser Vision Correction
Who is a candidate for Zyoptix LASIK?
Candidates for laser vision correction with the Zyoptix system meet the following criteria:
- Are at least 21 years of age
- Rely on glasses or contact lenses to correct for nearsightedness or astigmatism
- Have a stable vision prescription that has not significantly changed in the past year or so
- Have healthy eyes
- Are in good general health
If you are interested in treatment with Zyoptix, Dr. Ashraf can discuss your candidacy with you and perform tests on your cornea to determine whether you are eligible.
Is there a difference between Zyoptix treatment for myopia and traditional LASIK?
Traditional, non-customized LASIK is safe and effective. However, it does not account for the unique flaws and imperfections of your eye. Traditional LASIK relies on the information from your vision prescription to reshape your cornea. It produces results that are very good, but not outstanding.
Vision correction with the Zyoptix system is much more advanced than LASIK. Using Zyoptix technology, Dr. Ashraf considers your vision prescription as well as the unique topography of your cornea when planning out your treatment. He gathers thousands of data points about your individual optical system and creates a map of your cornea’s precise imperfections. The Zyoptix technology allows him to completely tailor treatment to your unique eye for an outcome that is better than what can be achieved through traditional LASIK. After treatment, your vision will be sharper under nearly all conditions — something that is not always possible with LASIK.
Using Zyoptix technology also enables Dr. Ashraf to minimize the likelihood that you will experience unwanted side effects (e.g., visual aberrations like halos around lights).
Does LASIK with the Zyoptix system have any side effects?
The side effects of treatment with Zyoptix technology are similar to those associated with traditional LASIK. They include the following:
- Sensitivity to bright light
- Difficulty seeing clearly at night
- Fluctuating vision
- Corneal edema
- Possibility of flap becoming infected or dislodged during healing process
- Double vision
Undergoing treatment with a qualified laser eye surgeon significantly reduces the chances of experiencing adverse side effects.
Does Zyoptix treatment hurt?
No, you should not expect any pain during treatment with Zyoptix technology. The extra diagnostic process of mapping out your cornea does not hurt and it is not uncomfortable. Prior to laser treatment, we will use drops to completely numb your eyes, and give you additional medication to relax you. You will feel nothing more than some slight pressure as the Zyoptix system reshapes your cornea. Pain after laser vision correction is extremely rare.
Is Zyoptix vision correction permanent?
Yes, vision correction with Zyoptix technology is considered permanent. Dr. Ashraf removes microscopic bits of corneal tissue, which cannot grow back after treatment. Therefore, the results last for life.
A small percentage of patients require “touch up” treatment to fine-tune the results of treatment.
Why should I choose Dr. Ashraf to perform my treatment?
The Zyoptix platform is an advanced piece of technology that requires the experience and skill set of a surgeon of Dr. Ashraf’s caliber. He has been able to achieve truly extraordinary visual outcomes using Zyoptix technology.
