What is Lasik Surgery?

Lasik surgery is an eye surgery that is known to be an ideal alternative to contact lenses or glasses. The surgery helps with the correction of vision problems in men, women, and teens. Lasik is a “laser refractive surgery” and is a common surgery performed using a type of cutting laser that changes the shape of the cornea to improve the patient’s vision.

Why is it performed?

A Lasik surgery is often recommended to correct vision problems like,

Myopia or Nearsightedness : This is the condition when the eyeballs of the person are a little longer or when the cornea curves very sharply. This is when the light ways when focused in front of the retina can cause a blurred distant vision. Patients suffering from this can see close objects clearly but not the ones that are located at a distance.

Hyperopia or Farsightedness : When a person has a shorter eyeball when compared to normal or when the cornea is very flat, the light gets focused behind the retina and not on it. This can make both near and distant vision quite blurry.

Astigmatism : This is a condition when the cornea has an uneven curve or flattens. As a result of this, patients often suffer from disruption of the focus of both near and distant vision.

If you are facing problems with your vision, and are planning to get a LASIK surgery done, do talk to a specialist at Friends Eye and Childcare Centre to know which procedure is apt for you.

Wavefront-guided Lasik – This is a new surgery that not only corrects the sight but helps correct even the minute flaws, providing you with supersight. Improved vision is possible due to the use of a wavefront analyzer, which are light beams that are projected into the patient’s eye via the pupil. These get reflected at the back of the eye from the retina. Using this procedure, our experts can detect even minor aberrations, thus improving vision.

Femto Lasik – This is a blade-free Lasik procedure that involves only the use of the laser to create the flap.
