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
After complete evaluation, your doctor will be able to tell you whether you are right candidate for lasik.
2. TYPES OF LASIK SURGERY-
BEFORE LASIK SURGERY-
DURING LASIK SURGERY-
AFTER LASIK PROCEDURE-
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)
In general, the ideal candidate for LASIK is:
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. This precision allows iDesign to create a unique “blueprint” and personalized treatment plan for each eye.
This technology is so advanced it is being used by NASA to shape the mirrors of the James Webb or Next Generation Space Telescope, which will transmit high resolution images of deep space to Earth beginning in 2018.
“It takes only seconds to treat a lifetime of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Find out if you are a candidate for this life-changing procedure by calling our office to schedule a personal consultation.”
