LASIK Refractive Surgery

LASIK is an acronym for Laser AssistedIn Situ Keratomileusis.In Lasik, a flap is created in the cornea with a hinge (around 90-130 micron) & then excimer laser is applied on the corneal bed to reshape the cornea according to the spectacle number.It can correct myopia, hyperopia & astigmatism with high degree of precision.

We at Jain Eye Hospital and LASER Centre are performing Lasik Surgery since 2000.

1. LASIK EVALUATION

You will undergo complete eye examination before the Lasik surgery which will include

  • REFRACTION WITH AUTOKERATOREFRACTOMETER
  • APPLANATION TONOMETRY
  • DILATED RETINAL EVALUATION.
  • TOPOGRAPHY & ABBEROMETRY
  • PACHYMETRY

After complete evaluation, your doctor will be able to tell you whether you are right candidate for lasik.

2. TYPES OF LASIK SURGERY-

  1. Simple LASIK - In this , your spectacle number is fed in the machine & treatment is done.
  2. Customised (wavefront guided)- In this , in addition to your spectacle number, lot of other measurements of the eye are taken into consideration. It prevents the light glare at night which usually happens with SImple LASIK. It is custom treatment specific for the eye. This is the most common lasik done.
  3. PRK – different kind of LASER Surgery , better for candidates of medical for defence services.
  4. SBK – This blade LASIK for certain special cases.
  5. BLADE LESS- In this, corneal flap is created with femto laser instead of a microkeratome. This is No Blade LASIK.

 

3. HOW LASIK IS DONE??

BEFORE LASIK SURGERY-

  1. You should discontinue wearing contact lenses for atleast a week.
  2. On the day of lasik surgery, you should have light breakfast.
  3. No eye make-up, perfume, deodorant on day of surgery.
  4. Antibiotic eye drops will be put and skin around the eye will be prepared with betadine solution.

DURING LASIK SURGERY-

  1. Eye will be anaesthetized with paracain eye drops so that entire procedure is painless.
  2. Lids are separated & held in position by speculum to avoid eye squeezing during laser treatment.
  3. Suction ring is applied around the cornea & then corneal flap created by microkeratome OR with Z laser in bladeless lasik.
  4. After the creation of the flap, it is lifted & you need to focus on the fixation red light when the laser ablation is carried out to reshape the cornea.
  5. Flap is then rolled back in to position & the edges are dried with cellulose sponge so that it sticks with capillary action.
  6. At the end, antibiotic eye drops are applied & the same procedure is repeated on the other eye.

AFTER LASIK PROCEDURE-

  1. You will be asked to wait in the waiting area for 10-15 minutes with your eyes closed.
  2. You will be examined by your doctor before asked to go home.
  3. On the day of lasik surgery, you should rest with your eyes closed for faster healing.
  4. You will be asked to put antibiotic & lubricating eye drops 4 times a day.
  5. From the very next day, vision becomes clear & you can resume your normal work.

CAUTIONS AFTER LASIK SURGERY

After the lasik surgery, you should avoid rubbing the eyes & avoid splashing water in the eye for atleast 15 days.

FOLLOW UP EXAMINATION-

Will be done on the very next day & one week later.

PRK (PHOTO REFRACTIVE KERATECTOMY)

  1. It will be required if the corneal thickness is less than anticipated.
  2. Instead of creating the flap, epithelium is removed & laser is applied directly on the surface & hence it is also called surface ablation.
  3. Recovery takes 4-5 days by which time epithelium grows bac

 

4. Are You a candidate for LASIK ??

In general, the ideal candidate for LASIK is:

  • Over 18 years of age
  • Has healthy corneas
  • No significant increase in their prescription in the last 12 months before surgery
  • People with certain medical conditions or women who are pregnant may not be good candidates for LASIK

The goal of LASIK is to reduce your dependence on corrective lenses.

The decision to have LASIK is an important one that ultimately, only you can make. It is important that you have realistic expectations and that your decision is based on facts, not hopes or misconceptions. LASIK does not always create 20/20 or even 20/40 vision. It cannot correct a condition known as presbyopia, or aging of the eye. In fact, people over 40 who have their distance vision improved with LASIK, may find they need reading glasses after the procedure. Your doctor will provide you with additional information that will allow you to make an informed decision.

5. iLASIK & iDesign

At Jain Eye Hospital & LASER Centre we are excited to offer iLASIK- the ultimate in laser vision correction. We are committed to using the most advanced technology, customized treatments for your eyes. Our experienced surgeons are trained in the latest techniques and equipment. This personalized procedure is the culmination of everything we’ve learned about LASIK since it’s inception. Take your first step to clear vision by scheduling your eye examination and LASIK screening.

LASIK surgery can correct many vision problems in 10 minutes.

LASIK, which stands for – Laser In Situ Keratomileusis – is a surgical procedure to reduce nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia) and astigmatism by reshaping tissue in the cornea (the clear covering of the front of the eye). LASIK is just one method of refractive vision correction, and its long-term results have proven to be very stable.

We are excited to offer iLASIK™ – the ultimate in laser vision correction

The technology used in the iLASIK™ procedure is safe and proven. Nearly 32 million LASIK procedures have been performed to date, making it the most common elective vision procedure in the United States.

iLASIK™’s Wavefront technology enables each treatment to be “designed” by the unique characteristics of the individual’s’ eyes. WaveScan technology produces a detailed map of the eye. Much like a fingerprint, no two are alike. After the blade-free Intralase method creates the corneal flap, this information is then translated into a set of CustomVue treatment instructions for the laser. WaveScan transfers these digital treatment instructions to the laser, providing a new level of precision and accuracy. CustomVue is a good choice for individuals who struggle to achieve the visual acuteness they need with contacts or glasses, or for people who tend to see “halos” around lights or have problems with glare.

The difference between LASIK and iLASIK™- When it comes to vision correction, LASIK and iLASIK™ procedures are two of the most commonly performed. The main difference between the two is how the ‘flap’ is made. At Jain Eye Hospital & LASER Centre, we provide iLASIK™ because we believe it is the safest and most effective method for laser vision correction. LASIK is a method of correcting refractive errors of the eye by using an excimer laser to re-shape the front surface of the patient’s cornea. When performing any type of LASIK, a corneal flap is created. With the standard LASIK procedure a microkeratome (hand-held) blade is used to cut and fashion this flap whereas with iLASIK™, the corneal flap is created with a second (femtosecond) laser.

The iLASIK™ procedure minimizes the already miniscule complications seen with the microkeratome flap. The advantage of the iLASIK™ procedure is it replaces the manually created microkertome flap with a much safer and precise method. This flap creation utilizes the IntraLase technology.

Why custom iLASIK™? At Jain Eye Hospital & LASER Centre, we employ custom iLASIK™ treatment. Custom wavefront-guided surgery is designed to eliminate pre-existing aberrations in the eye and uses state of the art wavefront-guided technology. Less aberrations and better vision are the hallmark of iLASIK™ and the reason we employ this technique at Jain Eye Hospital & LASER Centre.

iFS® AMO Laser - The iFS® Femtosecond Laser is the most advanced femtosecond intralase technology for corneal flap creation during LASIK surgery. At VisionFirst Eye Center, we are proud to provide this technology to our LASIK patients. The iFS® Advanced femtosecond Laser has amazing speed, accuracy, and is regarded as one of the best femtosecond lasers on the market.

In addition, the iFS® laser is able to make partial and full thickness corneal incisions at different depths and shapes, allowing our ophthalmologists to place corneal INTACS, inlays, and perform partial thickness corneal transplantation.

iDesign Advanced CustomVue LASIK System - Jain Eye Hospital & LASER Centre is happy to announce the addition of the iDesignwavefrontanalyzer from AMO-VISX to our LASIK practice. We are the first in Birmingham to offer this high-definition, advanced technology to our LASIK patients. iDesign measures the internal optics and surface of the eye more precisely than conventional methods.
