Lasik & Refractive Surgery

Refractive Eye Surgery

The eye surgery  to improve the refractive state of the eyes is refractive eye surgery. It reduces the dependency on using contact lenses or glasses to see after the surgery, which essentially consists of methods of surgical remodelling of the cornea or cataract surgery.

What is the procedure of LASIK?

To make the LASIK a totally painless procedure, process uses local anesthetic,  after the patient is made to lie face up with eyes open on the operating table. Hansatome, a precision device, then makes a flap on the corneal surface. Lifting the flap to a side, the laser is then directed to the exposed bed of the cornea (Stroma). The flap  repositioning is the next step after applying the laser for 30 to 40 seconds. The total surgery takes about 20 minutes to complete. We then conduct a vision test and medicines are prescribed to avoid dryness of eyes and prevent infection.

What is the post-operative care?

LASIK surgery patients will have to wear dark glasses after the surgery. They should take care not to rub the operated eyes with hands for a few days after surgery. Though the patient will be able to see after a couple of hours after the surgery, the vision clears up completely only on the day after the surgery. We recommend Complete rest for the eyes for 2-3 days following the surgery. They should refrain from using the computer or mobile phone during this period. The very next day the consulting doctor would want to see them and examine the eye(s).
