Femtosecond-assisted (Femto) laser in-situ keratomileusis (LASIK) is a type of laser eye surgery. Similar to other refractive laser surgeries, this surgery involves reshaping the cornea to resolve vision problems.
The Femto laser was developed in the early 90s, and it became popular very quickly as this tool allowed surgeons to create a corneal flap using a laser instead of a mechanical cutting tool (microkeratome). This method of flap creation is more efficient and allows the flap to be placed back without any sutures.
Pristyn Care is one of the best eye centers in India to undergo vision correction surgeries. We leverage traditional and modern techniques to correct refractive errors, including Femto LASIK, SMILE, Contoura Vision, SBK, and others. We have a dedicated team of ophthalmologists who have more than 10 years of experience in performing laser eye surgeries with a high success rate.
Our clinics are located across various cities in India, and we are also partnered with many hospitals across the country to deliver the best-quality medical care to everyone.

An individual is considered a good candidate for LASIK when they meet the following criteria-
|Scars & Stitches||Yes||Minimal|
|Follow Up Consultation||No||Yes|
|No Cost EMI||No||Yes|
There are several eye conditions that can make an individual ineligible for Femto LASIK. These conditions include but are not limited to-
The Femto LASIK addresses refractive errors by modifying the cornea shape. Refractive errors occur when the light is not focused properly due to the improper shape of the corneal tissues. Thus, the surgery works as below-
Before the surgery, it is important that the patient meet the surgeon and discuss goals, risk factors, and expected results. The surgeon will advise to keep realistic expectations and also inform about all the risks and benefits of the procedure.
If the patient wears contact lenses, the doctor will advise avoiding using them at least 1-3 weeks before the treatment. The exact duration will vary depending on the type of contact lens worn by the patient.
Before the day of surgery, the eyes will be examined. The examination results will be used to guide the laser. If the surgery cost can be covered by the laser, the doctor will also notify that and ask you to submit the insurance documents for cashless treatment.
It is best if the patient asks someone to accompany him/her for the surgery as the vision after surgery may be hazy.
The surgery is performed in the following steps-
The entire procedure takes around 10 to 30 minutes for both eyes.
Like any other surgical procedure, there are some risks associated with Femto LASIK, and the patient may experience some side effects. The risks include-
If the patient is not careful and doesn’t follow the doctor’s instructions after the surgery, he/she can develop complications like-
Immediately after LASIK, you can expect-
These symptoms last only for a few days or a month and shall resolve with the proper use of medications.
In most cases, the results of Femto LASIK are immediate. The patient’s vision improves within the next 1-2 hours. The overall recovery will take around 2 to 4 weeks. And throughout the recovery period, the patient will be asked to follow the instructions below-
In addition to resolving vision problems, a Femto LASIK has the following benefits-
In India, the cost of Femto LASIK starts from Rs. 30,000 and goes up to Rs. 1,20,000. This is only an estimated cost, and the actual cost may vary for each patient.
No, all types of LASIK eye surgeries are performed after using numbing drops. Thus, the patient doesn’t have any sensations in the eye. However, during flap creation, the patient may feel a slight pressure on the eye.
Typically, the patient is asked to take at least 1 week off to recuperate and give proper rest to the eyes. However, it depends on the patient when he/she wishes to resume work.
The key difference between LASIK and Femto LASIK is the preparation of the corneal flap. In LASIK, the flap is created with a microkeratome (small cutting blade), whereas in Femto LASIK, the flap is cut with a Femto laser, thus, making the surgery bladeless.
All types of LASIK surgeries are covered under insurance when the patient has an eye power of 7.5 Diopter or higher. Below this refractive power, the insurance policy won’t cover the surgery cost, and the patient has to bear the expenses.
