Four New Technologies Are Redefining How We Protect Our Eyes

The contact we make with the environment is what our senses represent. Our vision is the sense we most depend on. It’s actually our most dominant sense and we use it to get the most information about our environment more than any other sense organ.

It is therefore essential to keep it in good condition. Modern technology has made it possible to improve and protect our eyesight. We’ll be discussing some of the new technologies that can help with this. Continue reading to find out more.


SLT, or selective laser trabeculoplasty, is a surgical procedure that lowers intraocular pressure. This can cause conditions such as glaucoma. If standard medication like eye drops doesn’t reduce the pressure enough or if there are adverse reactions, it’s usually applied.

This procedure is ideal for patients with primary or secondary open-angle blindness. It’s possible for the eye condition to be managed successfully when it is paired with devices such as the digital SL-YAG platform for the treatment of glaucoma.


LASIK is a laser refractive procedure used to correct vision problems. It can be used with glasses or contact lenses. Blurred vision is caused by the light not reaching the retina correctly. This procedure corrects blurred vision.

This procedure is ideal for people with astigmatism, nearsightedness or farsightedness, myopia, hyperopia, or both. However, LASIK should not be performed on anyone under 18 years old, pregnant women, people on medication, or anyone who is on medication.

If you have glaucoma, dry eyes syndrome, or other health concerns such as diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis, it’s a bad idea to undergo LASIK surgery.

Intraocular lens

Cataracts can lead to a cloudy or blurred lens. This is why intraocular lenses are used to correct your vision. These lenses can improve patients’ vision because they are clear and bend light rays. Intraocular lenses can focus in a variety of ways depending on the cornea curve or eye length. They are made from silicone, acrylic, or other types of plastic that have been coated to protect the eyes from UV rays.

Wavefront exam

Wavefront aberrometry, or technology that measures the light waves traveling through the cornea and crystal lens, is called wavefront aberrometry. Specific vision errors can result from aberrations or distortions caused by the light’s traveling. The technology allows you to identify any errors and determine the best way to correct them.


Modern technology has made it possible to improve your eyesight and treat vision-related issues. Keep up-to-date with all new technologies for vision enhancement. However, it is important to first consult your ophthalmologist to determine the best technology for your problem.
