Refractive error is a condition of the eye when light rays entering the eye are not brought to focus at the retinal plane
With cosmetic correction of refractive error becoming more and more acceptable among the general public we offer refractive surgical correction with the latest technology so as to provide a customised treatment for each eye. The epitome of current technology would include bladeless LASIK which is performed routinely here.
Successful refractive eye surgery can reduce or cure common vision disorders such as myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism.Since each eye is unique, Excimer LASER with the Zyoptix platform offers the option of having the procedure customized for your eyes. The Intralase system ensures a perfect cut of the corneal flap with a femtosecond LASER instead of a mechanical microkeratome.
The corneal serves as a major refracting surface of the eye. Altering the shape of the cornea even slightly could cause a change in the refractive error. It is based on this principle that corneal laser refractive procedures work
There are many procedures which could be performed. However which technique would best suit your eyes varies from individual to individual. It’s important to know which type of procedure best suits your cornea. Photorefractive keratectomy, Laser assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK), Bladeless LASIK, LASEK, ReLEx SMILE, Epi LASIK are some of the techniques used to provide safe refractive correction.The procedure taking only 5-7 minutes, usually has a lot of positive impact in boosting our patients' self-confidence. You may ask if this is safe. But Laser correction of refractive errors has been around for 2 decades. They are quite safe. On top of it all, the procedure is performed under surface anesthesia with just eye drops. You won’t feel a thing.
Before a clinician suggests the above procedure he would first ensure that there has been no recent change in the refractive error, ensure there are no weak areas in the eye especially the retina and image the cornea to understand its properties like shape and thickness. Only when all parameters are ok will the clinician advise that you undergo such a procedure.We recommend that you remove and not use your soft contacts for upto a week prior to getting the imaging done. This will ensure that the cornea returns to its original state.You could get back to your routine after 2 days to a week as healing varies from individual to individual.Book Appointment
