About Lasik

LASIK or Laser in-Situ Keratomileusis is a common surgical treatment to correct vision-related problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. The concept of the LASIK technique was coined by an Indian chemist, Rangaswamy Srinivasan. He even holds the patent for ultraviolet excimer laser with James Wynne.

There are more than 400 centers for LASIK surgery in India. In the period 2007-2011, the search queries related to LASIK were the highest in India which declined by 24% in the next few years. Around 10 million Americans have had LASIK surgery since it was first approved by the FDA in 1999, states sources on the internet. LASIK is the 3rd most common procedure after tooth extraction and cataract surgery. LASIK can help to achieve 20/20 vision without any side effects in most cases. According to the study published by the Journal of Cataract & Refractive Surgery, LASIK has a 96% patient satisfaction rate.

In LASIK surgery, the eye doctor reshapes the front surface (cornea) of the eye to enable light entering the eye to focus on the retina without glasses or contact lenses. LASIK typically is pain-free and the eye specialist requires only about 15 minutes to treat both eyes. In some people, the vision improvement can be noticed immediately, while in others it can take approximately 24 hours for the vision improvement to become noticeable.

If you are suffering from vision impairment or blurry vision, you can contact Pristyn Care in Nashik and consult with some of the best eye surgeons for your treatment.

Treatment

Diagnosis

Before confirming the LASIK eye surgery, the eye surgeon or the ophthalmologist will do a detailed eye test to check both eyes. The eye specialist will also conduct a standard eye chart test to assess your vision. The doctor may also do a tonometry test by using a painless puff of air to flatten your cornea and to test the eye pressure. Additionally, the doctor may also put eye drops to enlarge the pupils so that it is easier to check the optic nerve and retina at the back of the eye and look for damaged areas. Apart from these, the eye doctor may also check for glare sensitivity or your perception of colors. Through these tests, the doctor will determine the most appropriate treatment LASIK method to restore your vision.

At Pristyn Care, our eye specialists leverage advanced laser technology for the treatment of blurred vision. During the LASIK procedure, the doctor numbs the eyes using eye drops and an instrument called a lid speculum is placed in the eyes to keep them open throughout the surgery. An ink marker and suction ring are used to restrict the cornea movements as well. The flap is removed safely through a tiny incision to expose the cornea. The laser beam is used to remove corneal tissues bit by bit until it is perfectly shaped. Once the cornea is reshaped, the flap is placed back over the cornea without any stitches and left to heal naturally. The entire surgery takes only 20 to 30 minutes for both eyes and is done on an outpatient basis. The patient can go back home on the same day and need a few post-surgery follow-ups to ensure that their eyes are recovering properly.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is LASIK considered an advanced eye treatment?

LASIK eye surgery combines the precision of a laser with the cornel flap technique. Eye surgery delivers greater precision than any other form of eye surgery. LASIK surgery corrects your vision without any complications in a comparatively shorter time. Even after the surgery, the patient faces no complications and requires minimal post-operative care.

How safe is LASIK surgery?

LASIK is considered to be a safe and easy surgical treatment for the eyes. It poses very minimal complications and risks to the eyes as well as the overall health of the person. Although safe in maximum circumstances, LASIK is a delicate procedure. To ensure safety, you need to make sure that you undergo the treatment only at the hands of an experienced eye specialist.

Can LASIK give me permanent results?

The results and outcomes of LASIK are permanent in most cases. But it is important to understand that an individual’s vision can still change after the surgery. That is why most eye surgeons and ophthalmologists advise their patients to undergo LASIK surgery after 18 years of age when major eye changes occur. The results of LASIK surgery are more likely to be permanent after the person achieves a stabilized vision.

How do I choose the best LASIK eye clinic?

  • The location of the clinic

How much does LASIK cost in Nashik?

The cost of LASIK surgery in Nashik 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.

Does insurance cover LASIK surgery cost?

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.

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.

Which insurance companies provide coverage for LASIK eye correction?

Almost all major health insurance companies provide ample coverage for vision correction, specifically LASIK eye surgery. The companies are:

  • Star Health Insurance
  • New India Health Insurance
  • Aditya Birla Health Insurance
  • Bajaj Allianz Health Insurance
  • Care Health Insurance
  • Manipal Cigna Health Insurance
  • Max Bupa Health Insurance
  • HDFC Ergo Health Insurance
  • ICICI Lombard

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.

How to prepare for LASIK surgery?

The best way to prepare for LASIK surgery is to follow the suggestions of your eye specialist. At Pristyn Care, our ophthalmologist will thoroughly guide you through the procedure to ensure the best outcome.

  • Avoid wearing perfumes or any colognes with heavy fragrances on the day of your surgery.
  • Do not put heavy lotions on your face and body on the surgery day.
  • Do not wear eye makeup on the day of surgery as well as the day of diagnosis.
  • Wear loose-fit clothes on the day of surgery that keeps you comfortable throughout the day. Do not wear any heavy clothes or clothes made with wool or such fabrics.
  • There are no major diet restrictions in case of LASIK surgery before or on the day of surgery. But if you are taking any other medications, inform your doctor. If the doctor asks you to stop taking the medication, avoid it.
  • Do not consume alcohol on the day of your LASIK eye surgery. Consuming alcohol can make your body dehydrate and hamper your surgery, its outcome and may also delay your recovery process.
  • Avoid smoking a few days before your surgery. It can hamper the eye condition and irritate the eyes.
  • Arrange for alternative transportation or get someone who can help you reach the hospital on the surgery day and return home after the 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.
