BLADELESS FEMTOSECOND LASIK SURGERY


As we all know that LASIK is the procedure with which we eliminate one’s dependency on glasses, spectacles or contact lenses by correcting it. People from various walks of life like Business Professional’s, Candidates from Army, Merchant Navy and Airforce, Models, to be brides and grooms choose LASIK for their better future Vision. But over the years, Lasik has come long way and now with better awareness more and more individuals are choosing to get FREEDOM FROM GLASSES. Over the last 2 decades LASIK surgery has provided safe and effective solution to help people get rid of glasses.

Till few years back, LASIK Surgery was done using Microkeratome. Though microkeratome assisted LASIK has been safe and has been quiet effective in helping patients get rid of glasses, the new era FEMTOSECOND LASER provides numerous advantages over the traditional microkeratome LASIK.

The best part of FEMTOSECOND laser is that it is completely BLADEFREE. There is no blade used during the time of surgery. It is fast, reliable and very safe to undergo LASIK with BLADEFREE FEMTOSECOND technology. The best part about the surgery is that being a completely LASIK guided procedure; there are negligible chances of having any flap related complications. The recovery after FEMTOSECOND LASIK is very quick. Most of the patients can resume the normal activities in just a couple of days after surgery.


Benefits of Blade free Femto LASIK

1. It is a complete Blade free Procedure

2. It is the most advanced technology available today

3. It provides more precise and predictable surgery

4. It provides easy hassle free lifestyle with clear vision and enhances self confidence

5. It is customized procedure suiting each individual

At Mumbai Eye Care, we have been performing LASIK surgery right from our inception. We have the latest technology in terms of the best machines available. A strict preoperative check up protocol helps us screen those who are not suitable for LASIK and avoid any complications. We have had a track record of 100% success rate in terms of complete safety and 0% infection rate after LASIK surgery. We believe in patient safety first. Hence our patients would receive only a fresh Microkeratome only. There is no reuse of any material used in the surgery.

FAQ's

For people who do intend to wear glasses and contact lenses and have a refractive error, we have options in the form of refractive surgery. Refractive surgery aims at making people spectacle-free. This is done by means of performing surgeries such as LASIK (Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis), PRK or ICL LASIK. It is a procedure where the cornea is reshaped to correct the refractive error. A flap of the cornea is lifted using a blade (microkeratome) or bladeless (femtosecond). After the flap is raised, the cornea is reshaped using ‘Eximer Laser’. PRK (Photorefractive keratectomy) is performed using the same laser. ICL (Implantable Collamer lens)- consists of placing a lens above the normal crystalline lens.
Not everyone is suitable for LASIK. Before planning a LASIK, patients have to undergo certain tests to evaluate if they are suitable for LASIK as it is performed only for patients with myopia of up to -10 dioptres, Hyperopia of up to 6 D and Astigmatism of up to 4 D. However, it is not just the refractive error that decides the suitability for LASIK. A thorough evaluation of the cornea on slit lamp to rule out any clinical signs of keratoconus, corneal scars or infiltrates is done. A corneal pachymetry of more than 490 microns is required for LASIK. A corneal topography is done to rule out any signs of sub clinical keratoconus. If any of the above criteria are not fulfilled, patients cannot undergo LASIK.
Yes, in cases of the thinner cornea with low to moderate refractive errors, we can perform PRK.
Yes, for those who are not suitable for LASIK/ PRK can now undergo a surgery called ICL. In this procedure, we place an intraocular lens above the normal crystalline lens. It simply means placing a permanent contact lens in the eye.
LASIK surgery intends to make a person spectacle-free. At the time of surgery, we feed the target refraction in the machine as Zero. However, sometimes there may be a residual error of 0.25 to 0.5D, especially in cases of higher refractive error that does not require to be corrected with glasses.
Prior to LASIK, the patient should stop wearing contact lenses at least for 1 week before the surgery. This will facilitate an accurate refraction, pachymetry, and topography so that we do not have any refractive surprises after the surgery. The patient should preferably have a hair bath a night prior to the surgery itself (patients will be advised to avoid hair bath for 2 weeks after the surgery). On the day of the surgery, patients should avoid wearing any perfume, deodorant and eye makeup. After the surgery, the patients will be prescribed dark glasses to be worn for a couple of days. The patient will be also given a couple of drops that are to be continued for a month after the surgery. The patient can resume the routine activities in two days.
One can resume the normal activities after two days.
LASIK is relatively a safe surgery. During the early postoperative period, patients may experience halos and glare. However, these will disappear in a month.
