Title: Lasik Surgery – The Pros And Cons - Arohi Eye Hospital

Lasik Surgery The Pros And Cons
Arohi Eye Hospital
Lasik surgery is one of the most common eye
surgeries performed around the world to help
patients get rid of their refractive error, and
see clearer and brighter, without the aid of any
kind of glasses or contact lenses.
What is Lasik? Lasik is a laser surgery that
uses laser technology to create a flap of the
cornea, the uppermost layer of the eye after
which the flap is opened, and the surgeon then
uses a laser to change the shape of the cornea
such that the refractive error of the eye is
corrected. The flap is then placed back into
position to let it heal naturally over time.
With this procedure, the light rays coming inside
the eye are bent to focus more precisely on the
retina, rather than anywhere near it thus
creating a clearer and sharper vision. All kinds
of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and
astigmatism can be cured with Lasik.
  • Benefits of Lasik
  • Lasik undoubtedly comes with lots and lots of
  • Firstly, it eliminates the refractive error, thus
    helping patients to see clearly without the use
    of any external aids like glasses or contact
  • Lasik is a quick procedure that requires only
    10-15 minutes, with no stay in the hospital.
  • Lasik is a painless procedure.
  • There is less corneal scarring in the long-term.
  • The effects of Lasik are permanent.
  • But, all of these benefits only come with the
    right and careful evaluation of your eyes before
    the surgery. And for that, you need a
    professional to evaluate your eyes and provide
    you with the most successful treatment. One such
    professional is Arohi Eye Hospital, where you
    can be diagnosed and treated by the best Lasik
    specialist in Mumbai, having more than 15 years
    of experience in the field.
  • Possible risks associated with Lasik
  • While Lasik comes with so many advantages, it may
    also bring certain risks along with it after
    all it is a surgery, and a surgery means
    altering the natural body parts that God has
    gifted us with. Although the risks associated
    with Lasik are rare, almost impossible, we still
    must let you know about the rarest possible
    risks, so that you are aware of them just in case
    you encounter any of them.
  • You may experience a temporary decrease in tear
    production, thus causing dry eyes.
  • You may have red eyes, itchy eyes, or watering
    eyes due to any problems in the corneal flap.
  • You may experience difficulty seeing at night
    with double vision,
  • glare, and halos around bright lights.

  • However, these problems may arise only if
  • You suffer from a condition that impairs healing,
    such as HIV, rheumatoid arthritis, and lupus
  • You suffer from Dry Eyes
  • You have too thin corneas or an irregular corneal
  • You have an abnormal lid position, deep set eyes,
    or other anatomic concerns
  • You have unstable vision
  • You are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Thus, you must also have yourself thoroughly
    checked before undergoing the procedure. Again,
    for this, you need the best Lasik specialist in
    Mumbai who can identify all these possible
    concerns before determining whether you are fit
    for the surgery or not. So, make sure you
    arrange for a thorough consultation first.
