Life Changed By LASIK: Blogger Edition

Bloggers Yuki Tansengco (The Style Cat) and Sab Lee (Jay and Sab Around the World) both had vision problems since childhood. Yuki had an eye grade of -2.5 to -2.75 and relied on prescription glasses while Sab, although reluctant to wearing glasses despite being diagnosed with nearsightedness in grade school, had to wear contact lenses when her eye grade became -3.50. Tired of dealing with the inconveniences of wearing specs and contacts, the two eventually decided to have LASIK at Shinagawa Lasik Center, the world’s leading LASIK eye surgery provider.

 

Now, Yuki and Sab are enjoying the benefits of having perfect vision. Aside from seeing the world clearly without relying on any eyewear, they also have more time and freedom to do activities that need good vision, like reading, doing art, playing sports, and driving. Life-changing indeed!

Perfect Vision in Less Than 20 Minutes

DID YOU KNOW…
That it only takes less than 20 minutes to get perfect vision?

With LASIK, getting 20/20 vision is not just possible nowadays; it’s also fast and easy!

LASIK (Laser Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis) is the most common type of laser eye surgery used to treat nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Using a computer-controlled excimer laser, programmed with data about the specific shape and structure of the cornea, a surgeon can efficiently reshape a patient’s cornea with exact precision. The procedure typically takes less than 20 minutes.

Before to the surgery, however, patients will undergo an extensive eye screening to determine the exact grade of their eye, the thickness of their cornea, and if they have existing health concerns that might prevent them from undergoing the procedure.

How LASIK corrects vision problems

The cornea is the clear front part of the eye that is responsible for focusing most of the light that enters the eye. When it is damaged from injury, significant vision loss can occur. By reshaping the cornea, the light traveling through it is properly focused onto the retina, thereby adjusting eye focus and correcting vision problems.

• Steepening the curve of the cornea improves near vision
• Flattening the cornea improves far vision
• Smoothening irregularity treats astigmatism

Quality of LASIK machines affects results

Traditional LASIK uses a blade (microkeratome) to create the corneal flap. Thanks to technological advancement, the procedure has evolved to using laser. However, not all bladeless LASIK procedures are the same. The most advanced ones use machines that are equipped with an eye tracking system, which captures even the slightest eye movements and records the exact centering and constant positioning of the eye.

Ultra LASIK, which is the most recommended procedure, uses SCHWIND AMARIS 750S eye tracker and FEMTO LDV Ziemer 6 laser. These superior technologies provide a greater vision correction while ensuring the highest level of safety. Most patients of Ultra LASIK also reach 20/10 vision, which is the highest resolution possible, because of a smoother ablation profile.

LASIK is life-changing

LASIK is not just a worthy investment; it is also a life-changing experience. Aside from no longer spending money on glasses and contact lenses, you can also do a lot of activities that you might have not done before, like swimming and many other outdoor activities; traveling without hassle; and playing freely with children and pets.

Your self-presentation will also improve. You will more comfortable meeting people without glasses or contact lenses. You can look more fashionable any time of the day because you no longer have to match your outfits to your glasses.

International fashion designer Pia Gladys Perey is one of the many people who had Ultra LASIK. She was ecstatic of the result and called it life-changing:

“I’ve been visually impaired since I was a baby due to an accident. But I had the most life-changing experience when I had ULTRA LASIK and I am in awe of the result; my vision is now 20/20. For my profession as a Fashion Designer, I think it’s very important to have perfect vision. In terms of my work and how I deal with people, it’s very important that I’m able to see perfectly.”

What You Need To Know About Warts

Warts are the white, beige, or brown small skin bumps that appear almost anywhere in the body. They are caused by HPV (human papillomavirus), which is acquired when a person is exposed to an environment with contaminated objects or through skin contact with a person who is a carrier of HPV when shaking hands or having sexual intercourse. Warts may also develop on people with autoimmune diseases, like HIV and AIDS. There are different types of wart that appear in the body, including:

Common Wart (verruca vulgaris)- This type of wart commonly appears on the fingers and toes. It has a rough texture and is usually round and grayish in appearance.

Flat Wart – Also known as “verucca planar”, this type is usually not noticeable. Areas commonly affected by flat wart include the face, neck, legs, arms, and around the beard.

Filiform Wart – It is also known as “verruca filiformis” and usually grows around the mouth, nose, neck, and, chin. It looks like a tiny flap or tag of skin. Filiform wart has the same color as the skin.

Periungual Wart – Develops under and around the toenails and fingernails, this type of wart commonly appears in people with nail-biting mannerism. It can be painful and may affect nail growth.

Plantar Wart – It is usually found on the soles of feet and can be painful and uncomfortable. It is acquired when the virus enters the body through tiny cuts, breaks, and other weak spots on the bottom of the feet.

Having warts is always a major turn off for a lot of people since this skin problem is usually related to hygiene issues and HIV. Because of the stigma and discomfort, most people want to get rid of warts. Some will even try home remedies to remove their warts. However, this is not advisable since it is likely that the warts will bleed. When this instance occurs, the infection will spread to other parts of the body. Other home treatments for warts may also cause burning and redness of the skin.

When treating warts, it is best to seek the advice of a dermatologist or visit an aesthetic clinic to avoid the occurrence of other skin problems and infections due to self-medication.

Fortunately, there is now a safe, painless, and convenient treatment for warts called “Electrocautery Warts Removal” that makes use of light electric currents that apply heat to the surface of the skin to burn away unwanted growths. It is also used as a treatment for other abnormal tissue growths.
