Title: LASIK Eye Surgery Center In Delhi

LASIK Eye surgery
  • What Is LASIK?
  • LASIK technology is an advanced technology to
    correct the vision and improve eyesight. At our
    eye care center, customer satisfaction and safety
    are at the top of our priority list. Our
    continuous efforts both in services and building
    infrastructure in context to the latest
    technologies set us apart from other eye care
    centers. Through our latest LASIK technology, we
    endeavor to provide our patients with the best
    and safe eye care they deserve. Through LASIK,
    the eyesight improves quickly and effectively.

  • How does Eye work?
  • The normal functioning of the eye is ensured by
    proper coordination between various parts of the
    eye both anatomically and physiologically. If all
    the parts of the eye fail to synchronize, poor
    vision results. Common vision problems related to
    the eye include
  • Nearsightedness (Myopia) In this condition, the
    objects near to the eyes are clear to the
    patients while far objects are blurred. The image
    in these patients is formed before the retina and
    not on the retina. The reason may be too long
    eyeball or too steep cornea.
  • Farsightedness (Hyperopia) People suffering from
    this type of eye problem have a problem seeing
    the near objects while having a clear view of far
    objects. The image is formed beyond the retina.
    Too short eyeball or flat curvature of the cornea
    may lead to hyperopia.
  • Astigmatism This problem is found in people with
    the irregular cornea. Astigmatism may occur in
    patients simultaneously with myopia or hyperopia.
    Patients with this problem have blurred visions
    of the objects whether placed far or near.
  • What is the measure of visual acuity?
  • 20/20 vision is commonly heard in context to
    eyesight. It measures the visual acuity of the
    eyes. Visual acuity for a long time is measured
    through the Snellen chart. 20/20 vision means at
    20 feet the person can see those things that a
    person with normal visual acuity can see.
    Therefore 20/20 is called a normal vision.
    However, if the visual acuity measures 20/40, it
    means that you must move closer to 20 feet to see
    the thing that a person with normal vision can
    see from 40 feet. The visual acuity score is an
    important parameter to determine the health of
    your eyes. Through proper examination it is easy
    to identify myopia or hypermetropia.

  • Cost Of LASIK Eye Surgery In Delhi
  • The cost of LASIK in Delhi depends upon a variety
    of factors that causes high variations of the
    cost at various centers. The cost may range
    from Rs. 18,000 per eye to Rs. 36,000 of rupees
    depending upon the technology involved in
    performing LASIK surgery. LASIK surgery is also a
    surgery and thus high standards of hygiene and
    safety protocols are required.
  • A one-time cost of LASIK surgery in more
    economical in the long run as compared to
    recurring costs of glasses and contact lenses.
  • Those centers which use old technology and do not
    follow minimum safety guidelines and hygiene have
    low cost as compared to those centers who follow
    the protocols. The cost also depends upon the
    experience of the LASIK surgeon and the success
    rate. Follow-up visit charges and medications
    also add up to the overall cost. While choosing
    the LASIK surgeon, the patient should consider
    various other variables such as dedication of the
    surgeon and success rate along with the cost
    factor.
  • LASIK Technology
  • Any LASIK procedure consists of two steps
  • CREATING A CORNEAL FLAP
  • TREATING THE UNDERLYING CORNEA WITH A LASER
  • now we shall discuss the above two points in
    detail
  • creating a corneal flap.
  • Corneal flap can be created either using a blade
    or using a laser called femtosecond laser. We
    at BAJAJ EYE CARE CENTRE use the best of
    technologies for both of the techniques. In BLADE
    LASIK we create a flap using not a surgical blade
    but an instrument called automated computerized
    microkeratome. For flap creation with
    microkeratome we use the worlds best and trusted
    MORIA ONE USE PLUS SBK microkeratome which has a
    capability of producing very thin flaps measuring
    equivalent to 90 microns. This technique is
    called SBK LASIK (sub bowmans keratomileusis ).
    The thinner flap in the range of 90 microns ( 1
    mm is equivalent to 1000 microns ) has obvious
    advantages.

  • More residual cornea is left behind thus leaving
    a thicker residual cornea for a lifelong normal
    functioning.
  • Since the flap is cut at a superficial level it
    results in a lesser dry eyes postoperatively
    allowing the patient to resume all his activities
    no sonnertha the next day onwards.
  • Moria one use plus microkeratome produces very
    smooth flaps almost equivalent to a femto second
    laser, thus the post operative vision is very
    good.
  • Thinner flaps settle down very quickly with no
    corneal folds and swelling thus the patient
    recovers vision almost immediately that is within
    15 to 20 minutes postoperatively a wow factor
    for SBK lasik. In BLADELESS or BLADEFREE LASIK we
    are using the most advanced ZEISS VISUMAX
    FEMTOSECOND laser machine and we take pride in
    having the first installation in whole of north
    Delhi for this.
  • Advantages of FEMTO FLAP on ZEISS machine
    hundred percent blade free lasik. Painfree. Very
    precise and accurate flaps. Fast IT takes only a
    few seconds to make a flap. Least expected
    complications which may occur on other
    technologies besides Zeiss platform. Flap related
    complications associated with microkeratomes are
    minimized or absent with the femtolasik, as it is
    more precise and more accurate. Femto flaps are
    more stronger in nature and fit more snugly to
    the base cornea comparatively.

  • THE SECOND STEP TREATING THE CORNEA BENEATH THE
    FLAP WITH EXCIMER LASER
  • Here the cornea is reshaped according to the
    refractive status of the patient. various
    profiles currently in use are
  • Planolasik it is the basic correction which
    corrects the spherical and cylindrical components
    of the refractive errors. The disadvantages
    include post operative glares and haloes
    especially in higher numbers, the advantage being
    it is cheaper.
  • Customised lasik ( clasik ) here a customization
    is attempted to be done according to patients
    corneal and total irregularities called
    abberations ( higher order abberations HOAS).
    however the drawback in most of the systems is
    that they are unable to pick up the abberations
    accurately and after treating them may land up in
    further abberations and problems caused by them.
  • Wavefront optimized aspheric lasik.this is
    supposedly the best technology, here the normal
    prolate shape of the cornea is maintained even
    postoperatively which mimics the preoperative
    shape. Advantages include absence or minimal
    postoperative glare and haloes which are a part
    of standard lasik. At BAJAJ EYE CARE CENTRE we
    use an advanced profile of aspheric wavefront
    optimized lasik at ZEISS MEL 80 platform, a
    GERMAN technology which are the world leaders in
    opto electronics.
  • Contoura lasik this is just a form of topography
    guided correction lasik and not much different
    from conventional lasik.
