Manila, Philippines (PressExposure) September 24, 2009 -- In the Philippines, Asian Medical Tourism, unveiled its LASIK Eye Laser Treatment procedure to treat myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism. LASIK Eye Laser Treatment is a fast, safe and virtually painless procedure that takes only 5 minutes and performed by a full time dedicated eye surgeon.
LASIK eye laser treatment was made possible by a Colombia based Spanish ophthalmologist Jose Baraquer, who, around 1950 in his clinic in Bogota, Colombia developed the first Micro Keratome and mastered the technique used to cut thin flaps of cornea without laser assistance and alter its shape in a procedure he called keratomeliusis. Then in June 20, 1989 the first LASIK Eye Laser Treatment was patented by DR. Gholam A. Peyman by performing keratomeliusis with the assistance of laser. From then on LASIK Eye Laser Treatment was introduced to other countries like the Philippines.
Today, faster lasers, larger spot areas, bladeless flap incisions, intra-operative pachymetry, and wave front-optimized and -guided techniques have significantly improved the reliability of the procedure.
The Philippines is blessed with a number of world class medical facilities and establishments where world renowned doctors and staffs offer a full state of the art range of diagnostic screening, therapeutic services and the latest technology for cosmetic surgery, plastic surgery, hormone therapy, stem cell treatment, eye laser treatment and many more.
