Laser assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) can be an alternative to spectacles or contact lenses. A special type of cutting laser is used to precisely change the shape of the dome shaped clear tissue at the front of your eye (cornea). By doing this the vision can be improved.
The safety and accuracy of the LASIK surgery or treatment depends largely on the machine used. You can opt for Lasik and get rid of glasses, contact lenses and endless prescriptions as it helps you to permanently improve your vision through laser treatment for eyes.
A journey from normal or bad to excellent vision
You don’t need to worry about stitches in your eye or to change a bandage.
With LASIK, you can expect to get back to normal the very next day of laser process.
No need to bother about taking contact lenses out before bed or searching for your spectacles the very morning, you can enjoy your day-to-day life without difficulty.
One can resume His/her day to day activity from the very next day of Refractive Correction/ Lasik.
Very short duration procedure (few minutes) – precise, safe and comfortable.
In Blade Lasik surgery or traditional Lasik, uses a microkeratome (the blade), to produce the incision and create the LASIK flap. Then, the eye surgeon lifts the flap to allow lasers to reshape the cornea. The extreme sharp blade of the microkeratome helps the corneal flap to fit back in place allowing the eyes to heal.
A small flap of corneal tissue is created using a femtosecond laser and then folded back. The eye surgeon uses an excimer laser to reshape the underlying corneal tissue to correct the vision.
Contoura LASIK is the most advanced, 4th generation LASIK procedure. While the process is similar to SMILE LASIK, the technology used is quite different. Just like your fingerprint is completely unique to you, Contoura Lasik creates a procedure that is completely unique to your eyes.
The cornea surface is not completely smooth. It contains some irregularities when we see it with microscope. Contoura Lasik is able to map these irregularities using 22,000 unique data points and also correct these irregularities. After getting this treatment, your eye vision is so improved unmatched to Lasik or Smile procedure.
