Eye care refractive surgeries encompass a range of surgical procedures aimed at correcting refractive errors, such as nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), astigmatism, and presbyopia. These surgeries are designed to reduce or eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses.
1. LASIK (Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis):
LASIK is a widely performed outpatient procedure that uses a laser to reshape the cornea, the clear front part of the eye.
It is effective in treating myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism.
The surgeon creates a flap on the cornea, uses a laser to modify its shape, and then repositions the flap.
2. PRK (Photorefractive Keratectomy): PRK is another laser eye surgery that reshapes the cornea without creating a flap.
It is suitable for individuals with thinner corneas or those who may not be good candidates for LASIK.
The outer layer of the cornea is removed before the laser treatment.
3. LASEK (Laser Epithelial Keratomileusis):
LASEK is similar to PRK but involves lifting a thinner layer of the cornea's surface (epithelium) rather than removing it.
It may be preferred for certain individuals with specific corneal characteristics.
Before undergoing any eye care refractive surgery, you should consult with an experienced and qualified eye care doctor and a professional to discuss your specific needs, expectations, and the most appropriate surgical option. Regular follow-ups are essential to monitor the healing process and ensure optimal visual outcomes.

WHAT IS LASIK
LASIK stands for "Laser Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis". This technique involves
raising a partial corneal flap surgically using an automated microkeratome, applying
of laser (Ablation) and repositioning of the flap. Ablation is performed using ArF
Excimer laser which ablate the tissue in a highly precise manner and change the
curvature of cornea making it flater or steeper. LASIK is a highly precise
automated, computer-controlled procedure which takes maximum time of 2.5 seconds per
diopter and it is virtually painless and offers rapid, next day recovery.
Freedom from glasses & contact lens
Fast visual recovery
No pain and no bandages required
Negligible risk of infection
Patients can go home immediately and begin
normal activities in most of the cases in a few days.
Its simple! Ask our doctor! After a detailed discussion with the doctor, a
range of tests known as the Pre-LASIK assessment is performed.
Thorough eye examination, Pachymetry, Corneal topography, Retinal
With the help of Wavefront, images are divided into 36000 parts & each part
is treated with the help of computer generated images to get the best
possible vision correction which is not possible in normal treatment. This
is also called as Customized LASIK treatment.
Almost nil, but as any surgery, laser vision involves a very low rate of
The side effects may be under correction, over correction, night
glare, etc. Results of clinical studies indicate that the chances of having
a vision-reducing complication are less than 1 percent. There have been no
reported cases of blindness resulting from LASIK.
Yes. With SCHWIND AMARIS 500E it is possible. PresbyMAX is the best solution
to get rid of reading glasses. PresbyMAX employs bi-aspheric, multifocal
ablation profiles, which ensure good vision at all distances.
LASIK has safely improved the vision of more than 1.7 million people world
wide with the following results:
percent of treated eyes achieved 6/6 (Normal) vision or better.
55.5 percent could see even better after the surgical procedure than before
with or contact lenses.
Improved contrast (helps in night driving).
Studies show that over 99% of patients who have had vision correction
surgery are able to pass a standard vision test 6/9 or better without the
aid of corrective lenses. If any power remains it can be corrected after
15-20 days without additional charges.
No reason to get disappointed, ICL is the next treatment choice with 99%
would be pleased to hear from you
Implantable contact lenses (ICL) are a type of vision correction surgery that involves placing a thin, prescription lens inside the eye to correct refractive errors. Unlike traditional contact lenses that sit on the surface of the eye, ICLs are surgically implanted between the natural lens and the iris.
- ICLs are often used to correct moderate to high degrees of nearsightedness (myopia), and in some cases, astigmatism.
- They are suitable for individuals who may not be good candidates for laser eye surgery, such as those with thin corneas or dry eyes.
ICL surgery is a valuable option for individuals seeking an alternative to glasses or contact lenses. However, as with any surgical procedure, it's important to consult with an experienced eye care doctor and also a professional to assess individual candidacy and discuss the potential risks and benefits of ICL surgery.
