Best Lasik Surgery in Mumbai

Why does one need to wear spectacles and contact lenses?

The human eye in many ways is similar to a camera. Like the camera, the eye lenses too focus images on the retina. The eye has two lenses: the cornea and “the lens.” The cornea, which is the first element in the visual pathway, provides about 2/3rd of the focusing power of the eye.

Sometimes in some unfortunate persons, there is a mismatch between the focusing power of the cornea and the lens and the length of the eye. In these circumstances, the eye focuses images in front of or behind the retina. This results in unclear vision, eyestrain, and headaches. The person is said to have a refractive error and needs to wear spectacles or contact lenses for clear vision.

How does laser vision correction work?

The laser, a state-of-the-art shaping device, is used to change the shape of the cornea. The corneal surface is polished by the laser, and tissue is selectively removed to reshape the cornea. This eliminates the refractive power of the eye.

The excimer laser used for this purpose has several properties that allow it to be used safely on the cornea. For example, it is a cold laser, and therefore, it causes little heat damage to the cornea. Similarly, it is able to penetrate the cornea by only 3 microns, and so, its effects are limited to a very small area and not to the rest of the cornea or the eye. By removing tissue selectively from the cornea, the refractive error of the eye is eliminated.

What are the different treatment procedures?

There are two or three types of treatment procedures using the laser. The most popular procedure, and usually the most appropriate, is LASIK or laser in-situ keratomileusis. In this procedure, besides the laser, another mechanical instrument known as the microkerarome is used.

This device is used to make a horizontal cut on the cornea to fashion a hinged flap. The flap is lifted, and the cornea is reshaped with the laser. Finally, the flap is placed back, where it sticks back in place on the reshaped cornea. Other procedures include PRK or photo refractive keratectomy, in which you should expect a slower visual recovery and more pain than in LASIK; however, for some patients, these procedures are more appropriate.

Please consult your doctor to determine the procedure that is most appropriate for you.

What are the different laser treatment options?

Besides the technique of laser reshaping, laser procedures also differ in the kind of tissue removal that is carried out. In conventional LASIK, an alteration in the natural shape of the cornea occurs. This leads to some vision disturbances, most often in dark conditions. Aberration-smart LASIK or wavefront-optimized LASIK minimizes this alteration in the natural shape of the cornea and minimizes or eliminates night vision problems after conventional LASIK. Moreover, wavefront-guided customized LASIK minimizes the treatment for individual eyes to eliminate not only the lower order errors of the eye, like sphere and cylinder, but also higher order aberrations like coma and trefoil. This not only gives excellent vision in the night or under low contrast conditions, but in some patients, it actually improves their vision making it better than normal vision.

How safe is the treatment?

Extremely safe. If the doctor and the patient co-operate during the course of the treatment, there is hardly any chance for complications to arise.

Is there a chance of the refractive error coming back in the long run?

No. The healing process takes approximately over six months after the treatment. Therefore, there is little chance of acquiring the refractive error again.

Types of Laser Treatment

How long is the treatment? Is it painful?

Normally the Lasik Surgery only takes about 15 minutes, in which the laser treatment itself takes only a few seconds. The treatment is not painful. Both eyes may be treated together. No injections are necessary. If all goes well, there will be a little irritation in the eyes for a few hours before the eye settles down.

Does the patient have to stay in hospital?

No, the patient can go home immediately. Things that irritate the eyes should, however, be avoided for a few weeks. For instance, in bright sunlight, it is advisable to wear sunglasses.

Who can undergo this treatment?

Anybody who wears spectacles and contact lenses can undergo this treatment. But it is not advisable for someone whose number has changed significantly in the past year or is likely to change again in the future. This treatment is recommended for those persons more than 18 years old. Even persons more than 40 years of age can undergo this treatment profitably; however, in their case, they may need a reading correction, like any normal person, after the treatment. The laser can treat longsightedness, shortsightedness, and astigmatism.
