Steps Involved in LASIK Eye Surgery

At Pristyn Care, we use all types of LASIK to correct refractive errors, including conventional LASIK, SMILE, Contoura, and others. The procedure involves the following steps:

  • The doctor puts eye drops in your eyes to numb them. Then a lid speculum is placed inside the eyes to hold them open. 
  • A suction ring is placed over the eyes to restrict cornea movements. 
  • Then the surgeon places the laser over the eye to remove the flap over the cornea. In standard LASIK, the flap is created using a scalpel. 
  • Once the flap is removed, the laser cuts tiny portions of the cornea to reshape it until the ideal shape is achieved. 
  • To correct myopia, the cornea is flattened a little bit, and to correct hyperopia, the cornea is made steep. 
  • After reshaping, the flap is placed back in the original position without any stitches and left to heal naturally. 

The corneal correction itself takes only 10 minutes, and the preparation takes around 15-20 minutes. Overall, the treatment takes around 30 minutes, and you can go back home on the same day. For more information, you can contact the best LASIK surgeon in Hyderabad and find out if you are an eligible candidate for LASIK surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who performs LASIK eye surgery?

The right person to perform LASIK eye surgery is an ophthalmologist. Many people think that other eye care providers, i.e., optometrists and opticians can also treat blur vision by performing LASIK surgery. However, this is not true. Only an ophthalmologist is certified, qualified, and trained to perform eye surgeries, including LASIK.

How my vision will improve after LASIK treatment?

Your vision will take around 24 to 48 hours to stabilize after LASIK surgery. You will most likely achieve 20/20 vision after the treatment and see clearly without using eyeglasses or contact lenses. In case your vision is undercorrected, you can again have LASIK surgery to achieve the perfect vision.

How long do LASIK results last?

LASIK eye surgery results can last up to 10 years or more depending on several factors, such as the patient’s overall health, post-surgery care, age, and other underlying medical conditions. If you follow the doctor’s instructions carefully and maintain your overall health, you will be able to enjoy clear vision for a very long time.

Can I blink during LASIK surgery?

No. You won’t be able to blink during the surgery as a lid speculum or eyelid holding device will be used to keep your eyes open. Besides that, your eyes will be numbed that will further prevent unnecessary movements in the eye during the procedure.

What is the success rate of LASIK eye surgery?

The success rate of LASIK eye treatment is more than 95%. Our eye doctors have ample experience in performing eye surgeries and they also leverage modern technology to carry out the procedure with precision and safety.

What is contoura vision eye surgery? 

Contoura Vision is a type of surgery in which a doctor uses a specialized computer-guided topographic mapping technique to reshape the cornea.

For how long do I need to take leave from work for LASIK surgery?

It depends on the nature of work you have. Surgeries and dentistry require clarity so it is best to wait for 48hours before resuming work or else most patients can resume work the next day.

Will my eyes look different after LASIK vision correction?

Absolutely no. The eyes look exactly the same even after the laser eye surgery.

Is LASIK surgery safe? 

Yes. Laser vision correction procedures, such as Bladeless Femto LASIK, Bladeless and Flapless ReLEx Smile LASIK, and other advanced innovations have made the surgery safer, faster, and precise.

What is Femto LASIK?

Femto LASIK, also known as femtosecond-assisted LASIK, is a type of laser eye surgery. It allows the surgeons to create a corneal flap with the laser rather than using a mechanical cutting tool. After surgery, the flap is placed back in its original position without sutures.

What are the common side effects of LASIK operation?

The common side effects of LASIK eye surgery are:

  • Dry eyes
  • Glare, halos, and double vision
  • Undercorrection and overcorrection
  • Astigmatism
  • Flap problems
  • Regression of vision
  • Vision loss or changes
  • Itchiness and soreness in the eye
How is contoura LASIK surgery different from conventional LASIK operation? 

While the conventional LASIK surgery maps about 200 points in the cornea, the Contoura LASIK maps around 22,000 points on the cornea for more accuracy. Contoura LASIK also has fewer complications as compared to the conventional technique and the damage to the tissues is relatively less.

What is the difference between PRK and LASIK?

The key difference between PRK and LASIK is the creation of a flap in the cornea. While LASIK surgery requires a thin flap to reshape the cornea, PRK removes the outer layer of the cornea completely. In both scenarios, the flap grows back over time.

Does LASIK hurt?

No. LASIK eye surgery does not hurt. Before the procedure, the surgeon will place numbing eye drops in both your eyes and only proceed when the solution takes effect. You may still feel slight pressure during the surgery.

Where can I find the best eye care centre near me in Hyderabad? 

You can find the best eye care centre in Hyderabad by talking to Pristyn Care’s medical coordinators. They will provide you a list of eye care centers in close proximity that you can visit the nearby clinic to consult the eye specialists.

How do I choose the best LASIK eye clinic? 

To choose the best LASIK eye clinic, you will have to keep the following points in mind:

  • The reputation of the clinic
  • The ophthalmology department
  • Technology, diagnostic and surgical equipment used to perform LASIK
  • The success rate of the clinic along with the patient satisfaction record
  • The quality of the medical services and price
  • Reviews of the clinic
  • The location of the clinic

Consider all these aspects while making a decision and you will be able to choose the best eye care clinic to undergo LASIK surgery in Hyderabad.

How much does LASIK cost in Hyderabad?

The cost of LASIK surgery in Hyderabad ranges from Rs. 35,000 to Rs. 1,10,000 approximately. The exact cost depends on multiple factors, such as the severity of the refractive error, doctor’s fee, hospital charges, type of LASIK, etc. Therefore, the final cost will vary for each patient.

Can LASIK surgery damage your eyes? 

LASIK surgery can cause dryness, flap problems, regression of the vision, and sudden vision changes/loss. However, these are temporary side effects of LASIK. The chances of LASIK permanently damaging your eyes or affecting the vision are rare.

Does insurance cover LASIK surgery?

LASIK surgery is covered under insurance only under certain conditions, i.e., if your eyes refractive power is higher than or equal to 7.5 diopters. If the refractive error is lower than this limit, the insurance providers won’t approve the claim and you’ll have to bear the expense of vision correction from your own pocket.

What is the best age to undergo LASIK eye surgery? 

Though LASIK surgery can be performed at any age group, doctors often recommend that the ideal age range for LASIK is between 25 to 40 years. This is because the eyeglasses and contact lens prescriptions usually stabilize by the age of 25. And a stable prescription is the eligibility criteria for a LASIK candidate.

How can I contact the best LASIK doctors near me?

You can contact the best LASIK surgeons near you through Pristyn Care. You can either download our Consult Doctors application to book an appointment with the eye specialists personally. Or you can talk to our medical coordinators to schedule your appointment with the best LASIK doctors near you.

Is LASIK a long-term solution?

Yes. LASIK is a long-term solution for blurry vision or refractive errors. It reshapes the cornea to reduce the eye power and gives a long-lasting effect. However, LASIK cannot prevent further changes in the cornea. You may notice minor changes in vision in the future due to your new eye power.

Is LASIK the best option for eyeglass removal? 

Yes. LASIK completely eliminates the dependence on eyeglasses or contact lenses through a simple and minimally invasive procedure.

Is the cornea test before LASIK important?

Yes. The corneal thickness test is a very important test to determine the suitability of the person to undergo LASIK surgery. It is because the surgeon has to remove the corneal tissues to reshape the cornea and correct the refractive errors. If there are not sufficient corneal tissues, you won’t be eligible for LASIK operation.

People who suffer from vision problems see LASIK surgery as a lifesaving procedure. However, people are unaware that around 20% to 30% of people who wish to undergo LASIK surgery are denied treatment because of inadequate corneal thickness. Therefore, it is always advised that you consult an eye specialist first and then start expecting from the procedure. If you keep your hopes up and then find out that you are not an eligible candidate for LASIK, then you will feel disappointed.

You can contact Pristyn Care and consult with our best eye surgeons to learn as much as possible about the treatment.

When LASIK surgery is not advisable for the patient?

LASIK surgery is not advised to a patient if they have any of the following:

  • An eye disease that can cause the cornea to become thin and bulge out.
  • A fairly good overall vision
  • Severe nearsightedness
  • Large pupils and thin cornea
  • Age-related eye changes that cause vision to become dim
  • Participation in contact sports where they can get a direct blow to the face

In all these situations, the eye specialist will recommend an alternative treatment method to correct vision problems.

How to prepare for LASIK Eye Surgery?

  • If you are an eligible candidate for LASIK surgery, the eye specialist will advise you to follow the tips below and to take some precautions to ensure that there are no complications during the procedure and your eyes respond well to the treatment. These tips include:
  • Stop wearing the contact lenses before having LASIK. If you wear soft contacts, you’ll have to stop at least a week before the surgery. And if you wear hard contacts, you will have to stop wearing them at least a month before the procedure. This is important because wearing contact lenses can alter the shape of the cornea and affect the results.
  • Wear loose and comfortable clothes as you’ll be undergoing surgery in those same clothes. It is important that you follow this advice and wear clothes that are appropriate to wear in the operating room as well.
  • Ask your friend or family member to drive you back from the surgery center. Though you won’t be asleep during the procedure, the anesthesia will still have some lingering effects. Therefore, it is not safe for you to drive yourself.
  • Avoid wearing any makeup, perfume, or lotions on the day of surgery as these products act like contaminants for the face.
  • Do tell your surgeon about your medical history and any medication you are allergic to. This may impact the outcome of the surgery and the precautions you’ll have to take after surgery.

Benefits of LASIK Eye Treatment

LASIK treatment has become a popular way to restore clear vision in patients over the years. This is because it has many aspects that are beneficial for the patients. The key benefits of the LASIK eye treatment are:

  • Improved Vision- The patient can achieve 20/20 vision or perfect eyesight after LASIK.
  • Safety- The latest advancements and innovations in laser vision correction procedures make the surgery safer and precise.
  • Faster Healing- Being a minimally invasive surgery, LASIK has less downtime for the patient and the healing is also quick.
  • Minimal Complications- There are very few complications of LASIK surgery and even those ones can be managed with certain medicines or precautionary steps.
  • Less Expensive- Compared to the amount of money you spend on contact lenses, frames, and contact solutions over the years can easily make up for the expenses of LASIK surgery. And you’ll save more money when your vision is clear and you no longer need visual aids
  • Additional Adjustments- Another great benefit of LASIK is that if needed, you can undergo the procedure again to further adjust your vision if it changes.

Due to all these advantages, people are becoming more inclined to LASIK and other latest forms of vision correction too.

What are the different types of LASIK surgery?

As there are different types of LASIK eye surgery available, patients often have a hard time determining which laser procedure is the best for the eyes. LASIK itself is a type of refractive surgery that is performed with the help of a laser. People have heard many names for LASIK, such as Femto LASIK, Contoura LASIK, Smile, etc.

However, you should understand that the primary difference between these types of surgeries is the type of laser used. It is either an excimer laser or a femtosecond laser that is used to carry out the procedure or the technique is slightly different.

But there are many other types of refractive surgeries that can help a person to correct vision problems. These different types of vision correction procedures are:

  • LASIK- It can help to treat myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, and presbyopia. LASIK is one of the most popular refractive surgeries and comes under blade-less procedures as a laser is used to cut the corneal flap.
  • PRK- Photorefractive Keratectomy was the first technique that involved using lasers to correct vision problems. It can help to treat myopia, astigmatism, and presbyopia but not hyperopia. The key difference between LASIK and PRK is that it is done by removing the outer layer of the cornea whereas, in LASIK, only a small flap is created and lifted to reshape the cornea.
  • ASA- Advanced Surface Ablation is similar to PRK but uses Zeiss excimer laser to ablate the cornea and reshape it to provide clear vision. It can treat myopia, astigmatism, and presbyopia.
  • LASEK- Laser-Assisted Subepithelial Keratomileusis is also similar to PRK. But unlike PRK where the flap is created and removed, in LASEK, the flap is created and pushed to the side of the cornea where it remains attached to the eye. After surgery, the flap is repositioned and a bandage contact lens is placed on the eye to keep the flap in place as it heals. It can be helpful to treat myopia, astigmatism, and presbyopia. But you should know that LASEK is not USFDA-approved.
  • EPI-LASIK- Used for correction of myopia, astigmatism, and presbyopia, EPI-LASIK is another variation of PRK. The flap of the outer layer of the cornea is created with the help of a special tool called an epithelial separator. It is also not approved by USFDA.
  • LBV- Laser Blended Vision is a technique that helps to correct presbyopia only. It treats the dominant eye for distant vision and the non-dominant eye for near vision. It is a US FDA-approved technique.
  • SMILE- SMILE stands for small incision lenticule extraction which is a new blade-free technique that uses a femtosecond laser to create a lenticule shape in the corneal tissue. The lenticule size and shape are adjusted to correct the refractive error of the patient. It is not approved by the FDA for myopia of less than 1 Diopter and neither for astigmatism or hyperopia. Therefore, it can only be used to treat high myopia.

Other than these techniques, there are other laser-based procedures that can correct refractive errors and treat other eye disorders like cataracts, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, etc.

Recovery & Post-Surgery Care After LASIK

You should understand that undergoing LASIK surgery is not enough to get the desired results and correct all the vision problems effectively. The most crucial thing is the recovery period. In the first few days, your eyes will itch, feel gritty, burn, or become watery. Your vision may also take 24-48 hours to stabilize. And the corneal flap will take even longer to heal completely.

The complete recovery time after LASIK is around one month during which you’ll have to take many precautions and follow the doctor’s advice strictly. If you don’t follow the doctor’s instructions, there is a possibility that your final outcome of LASIK won’t be exactly what you hoped for.

Here are some common post-surgery care tips that will help you to recover quickly and get the best results from LASIK:

  • Do not touch or rub your eyes as it can cause irritation
  • Apply eye drops as directed by the doctor for faster healing and to reduce side effects like dry eyes.
  • Get the right eye protection device to keep dust, dirt, and even strong light away from the eyes.
  • Try to avoid direct sunlight and artificial light as well. Stay in the soft and dim light that soothes your eyes.
  • Avoid heavy exercises and all kinds of sports activities until your eyes heal properly.
  • Avoid soap for the first few days completely and don’t take showers or hot tub baths as well.
  • Give enough rest to your eyes and keep them away from the digital screen in the first week as much as possible.
  • Avoid wearing makeup, cream, or any other products with chemicals, including face wash.
  • Take follow-up with your eye doctor to monitor the eye’s recovery and to detect signs of potential complications.
