About

Dr. Young Seob Lee is an opthalmologist with medical expertise in ICL/Artiflec lens implantation surgery and lasek at BGN World Tower Eye Clinic. ICL (Implantable Collamer Lens) and Artiflex lens implantation surgery are procedures used to correct refractive errors such as myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. During the surgery, a small, thin lens is implanted inside the eye to improve vision. ICL and Artiflex lenses are both types of phakic intraocular lenses (IOLs), which means they are implanted in front of the eye's natural lens rather than replacing it like in cataract surgery. Dr. Young Seob Lee has specialized training in refractive surgery and has experience implanting phakic IOLs. Dr. Young Seob Lee is also a member of professional organizations such as the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS) or the International Society of Refractive Surgery (ISRS). Dr. Young Seob Lee will perform a comprehensive eye exam to determine if you are a good candidate for ICL or Artiflex lens implantation surgery. This will include evaluating your refractive error, the health of your eyes, and any other factors that may affect the success of the procedure. Dr. Young Seob Lee will discuss the risks and benefits of the procedure with you and answer any questions you may have. Dr. Young Seob Lee will also provide detailed instructions on how to prepare for the surgery and what to expect during the recovery period. LASEK (Laser-Assisted Sub-Epithelial Keratectomy) is a type of laser eye surgery used to correct refractive errors such as myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. During the surgery, a thin layer of the cornea's epithelium is gently moved aside, and an excimer laser is used to reshape the underlying corneal tissue. Unlike LASIK, which creates a flap in the cornea, LASEK uses a solution to loosen the outer layer of the cornea, which is then moved aside before the laser is applied. After the laser treatment, the epithelial layer is repositioned over the cornea, and a contact lens is placed over the eye to help protect the surface while it heals. Dr. Young Seob Lee is also a specialized refractive surgeon who has experience using the laser to reshape the cornea and correct refractive errors such as myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. Dr. Young Seob Lee can perform a comprehensive eye exam to determine if you are a good candidate for LASEK. This will include evaluating your refractive error, the health of your eyes, and any other factors that may affect the success of the procedure.
