Title: LASIK Eye surgen in Delhi

LASIK Eye Surgery In Delhi
  • What Is Lasik Surgery?
  • LASIK is the acronym for Laser-Assisted in
    Situ-Incision Keratomileusis. It is a type of
    refractive surgery used for vision correction. It
    is one of the effective, safe, and popular
    laser-based refractive surgeries. LASIK is
    carried out as an alternative for glasses and
    contact lenses. It permanently changes the
    changing the shape of the cornea. It helps in
    treating Near-sightedness, Farsightedness, and
    astigmatism eye defects. When the eye does not
    refract (bends) the light correctly, it leads to
    blurry vision.
  • Why Is Lasik Eye Surgery Performed?
  • LASIK surgery is carried out to correct the
    following eye disorders
  • Near-sightedness  It is also known as MYOPIA. It
    occurs when the eye focuses the light in front of
    the retina. As a result, the far objects appear
    blurry, whereas nearby objects can be seen
    properly without any hassle. LASIK can be used
    when near-sightedness is up to the range of -1
  • Farsightedness It is commonly known as
    HYPERMETROPIA. It occurs when the eye focuses the
    light behind the retina instead of on it. As a
    result, the nearby objects appear blurry and
    unclear, and things far away can be seen clearly.
    LASIK can treat farsightedness up to the range of
    6 dioptres
  • Astigmatism  It occurs when the focus of both
    near and far vision is affected.

  • Is There Some Eligibility Criteria One Needs To
    Meet To Get Lasik Done?
  • There are specific criteria which are needed to
    be met to get LASIK done. LASIK is not for
    everyone. Your doctor must be transparent and
    honest with you. Several conditions are taken
    into consideration while deciding the
    eligibility. Some of the points which determine
    the eligibility for LASIK are
  • A person must be 18 years or above.
  • Should not be suffering from autoimmune diseases
    like HIVs, AIDS, Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Have stable vision
  • Should have an appropriate corneal thickness for
  • Should have no history of any eye disease,
    scarring, or infection
  • The farsightedness is not age affected
  • Should not be pregnant or nursing
  • How Is Lasik Eye Surgery Performed?
  • LASIK is a two steps process. It takes almost
    25-30 minutes to complete. In LASIK, the laser
    remains in contact with the cornea of the eye for
    60 seconds. First, the doctor administers the
    anaesthetic eye drops in the eye to numb the
    eyes. Then the doctor places an eyelid to prevent
    it from blinking. The surgeon guides the
    femtosecond laser to create a thin circular
    flap on the cornea. The flap is then folded
    back. It allows the surgeon to access the stoma
    (underlying cornea). Later, using the
    computer-guided laser, the surgeon injects a beam
    of ultraviolet light to remove the small part of
    the cornea. It is done to reshape the cornea.
    Once done, the light is refracted accurately on
    the retina. Then optic nerves transmit the
    message to the brain to convert it into a clear
    image. Without proper optic nerve functioning,
    the image produced is unclear and blurry.

  • Are There Any Risks Or Side Effects Associated
    With The Process?
  • LASIK is an advanced technology with a high
    success and patient satisfaction rate. However,
    all surgeries have some or other risks associated
    with them. However, the risks associated with
    LASIK are generally mild. As per the reports,
    only 1 of patients are seen to have a
    complication. These were are also temporary ones
    and improved with time.
  • The significant risk associated with LASIK is
    flap complications which are flap wrinkling, flap
    breaking, displacing from its position, or debris
    trapped under the flap.
  • Some side effects associated with LASIK are
  • Mild pain
  • Watery eyes or dry eyes
  • Blurry or hazy vision
  • Itching or burning in the eye
  • The white part of eyes may look bloodshot and red
    for some days
  • Sensitivity to light, glare, and haloes
    surrounding lights
  • The doctor may prescribe some eye drops for the
    side effects. Kindly take the eye drops
    prescribed as directed. These are common with
    LASIK and will go away within a week.
  • What Results Can You Expect After Lasik?
  • You may experience ocular discomfort few hours
    after the surgery. The doctor may also provide
    eye drops to relieve the symptoms and reduce the
    risk of infection. You may expect a significant
    improvement in the vision the next day after the
    surgery. An experienced eye surgeon performs the
    surgery. It has a high patient satisfaction rate.
    The results have been so wonderful that many
    people dont consider the second LASIK. As per
    the latest report, more than 90 of patients have
    achieved perfect vision. It is important that to
    obtain the maximum benefit and perfect vision
    after LASIK eye surgery, you should strictly
    follow all the recommendations of your eye
