Looking to get LASER correction for specs removal?

Many individuals across the globe undergo eye surgeries each day to resolve eyesight problems. One of the most common eyesight glitches is refractive error because of the cornea failing to focus light appropriately on the retina. This failure generally results in nearsightedness and farsightedness. Depending on the errors, an appropriate treatment plan is made like LASIK, Femto-LASIK( also calle Robotic LASIK) and SMILE for Laser vision correction where surgery is executed to restructure the cornea. At Spectra Eye, we offer solutions like Femto Second Laser and SMILE technology for LASER vision correction.

PRK

PRK (photorefractive keratectomy) is a type of refractive surgery to correct myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism.

Blade Free LASIK

Femto Second LASIK is one of the most preferred LASIK treatment. The procedure can correct a number of other errors other than refractive errors. Using computerised programming, it is possible to maintain robotic accuracy with this procedure. As no incisions are made, it is very safe and has excellent outcomes.

Difference between LASIK and Femto-LASIK

With traditional LASIK, a controlled blade(microkeratome) is used to create the flap ( akind of hinged piece of corneal tissue). With advanced Femto-LASIK, ahighly precise flap is quickly created with a femtosecond laser.

SMILE

The procedure uses a very small incision on the side of the cornea making it the safest treatment available for LASIK. It is minimally invasive and preferred over all types of LASIK treatments.

Age for LASIK

There is no stern age requirement. However, maximum folks by the age of 20-21 have reached a point at which their glasses prescription will remain moderately steady. The key to being a good contender is that your glasses and/or contact lens prescription should be somewhat stable. We have treated patients 19-70 years of age with LASIK.

Procedure

Throughout the process you are awake. Eye drops are the solitary anesthesia. Sedation is not essential, but you might take an oral tranquilizer. Your eyelids and lashes are cleaned for sterility and a gluey drape keeps your lashes out of the way. Your lids are mildly opened. You look at a blinking red light which keeps your eye appropriately positioned. During the flap creation stage, you have a sensation of heaviness and a grayness of vision. Then the laser is used and you will hear a quick clicking sound. The flap is replaced and it takes about 3 minutes for it to shut. After the process, you will leave with an eye shield and eye drops to help your eye reconcile. Also, your vision might be a little blurred for a couple of days. The process takes under 10 minutes per eye. Maximum patients are able to go back to work in 24 hours, and over three or four weeks, have ongoing improvement in their vision.

FAQ

People, who for some reason are declared unfit for Lasik Laser, need not fret or worry. There are some other promising alternatives that can successfully slacken the dependency on glasses. Some such options are:
  • PRK
  • Implantable Contact Lens (ICL) Surgery
  • Clear Lens Extraction
The SMILE treatment is a form of refractive surgery that has recently been approved by the FDA and is still very new to India. Standing for ‘Small Incision Lenticule Extraction’ the SMILE treatments unique selling proposition is that it’s the first flapless procedure of its kind. Claiming that it provides a side incision that is 80% smaller than the flap created during LASIK surgery.

This laser refractive surgery is meant to be minimally invasive and involves removing a small layer of the corneal tissue (lenticule) without creating a flap. For furthur detail visit http://www.spectraeye.in/smile/
Ans.) Prior to LASIK vision correction surgery, our professionals will perform a comprehensive eye examination to ensure that you are a good candidate for undergoing LASIK treatment. The pre-LASIK vision correction evaluation (LASIK CONSULTATION & PRE LASIK SAFETY TESTS) include:
History Taking
Visual Acuity Testing
Refraction
Keratometry (measurement of corneal curvature)
Slit Lamp Examination
Pupillary measurements
Tear Film Analysis
Glaucoma Testing
Pachymetry (measurement of corneal thickness)
Detailed Retinal Evaluation with Dilatation.
Corneal Topography
FACT, LVCA (Low contrast Visual Acuity)
Pentacam Test

For your own safety we request you to not self-drive home after the tests as the vision may be slightly blurry for a couple of hours.
  • Make sure your doctor is aware of eye-related health issues, as well as more general health concerns or problems, both past and present. Ensure your doctor knows exactly what medications you take on a regular basis, as well as any medications you may be allergic to..
  • For one to two days before your laser eye surgery, you should keep your eye area clean and makeup free. Any debris left along the eyelashes can increase risk of infection.
  • If you wear soft contact lenses, it is essential that you take them out at least one week prior to having laser eye surgery. Wearing glasses too close to your laser eye surgery may result in inaccurate measurements, causing your results to be less effective. During this time period, wear your glasses instead.
  • In the days leading up to your laser eye surgery procedure, ensure you keep your facial skin completely free of any moisturizers, perfumes or foundations. If these come into contact with the eye, your risk of infection may increase.
  •  
  • Organize to have someone take you to and from your appointment
  • Because it’s best to keep the laser technology at a lower temperature, it can get cold in laser suites so wear something warm, preferably something that you don’t need to pull on and off over your head. Anything that’s fluffy is best to be avoided.
  • It is important on the evening of your surgery that you rest your eyes and keep them closed. This means you will not be using your mobile, computers, reading or watching television. You will most likely sleep but it is best to be prepared and have something to entertain you (music etc) during your recovery.
After your successful laser eye surgery, have a friend drive you home and wear your sunglasses. Rest your eyes and keep them closed so that they are comfortable.

Ideally you will want to keep your eyes closed for 2 to 4 hours as part of the immediate LASIK recovery process. You may experience mild sensitivity for a few hours but there should be minimal discomfort.

Avoid rubbing, squeezing or touching your eyes after LASIK surgery, since the surface of your eyes are still sensitive. If your eyes become dry or irritated, use your preservative-free artificial tears to help keep your eyes comfortable.
Many patients return to work within a day or two of their LASIK procedure. Be sure to follow the restrictions below and you should be free to resume all of your normal activities.

  • No exercise for two days.
  • Wear eye protection for at least a month once you start exercise and sports activities again.
  • Avoid dirty and dusty environments for 7 days.
  • Bright sunshine may cause scarring, so wear sunglasses on bright days for at least a year.
The laser procedure is generally painless. The anaesthetic will be in full effect, making the eye completely numb. Some patients have reported feeling some slight pressure on their eye while the laser is being applied to it. The laser treatment itself only takes around 30-40 seconds, so any feeling of discomfort will be minimal and short-lived.
You can return to your normal work within 2-3 days however rest is advise or two weeks.
If you wish you can wear anti-reflection glasses while driving or colored contact lenses after four weeks.
For maximum safety, you should avoid wearing eye makeup for two weeks following your surgery. You can continue to wear foundation and other products. However, if you apply makeup around your eyes, small particles could come in contact with the sensitive area, increasing your risk for irritation and infection.

When you do begin to wear makeup again, you should purchase new eyeliner and mascara. Bacteria can cling to old products, and, following surgery, you may be more susceptible to infection.
While many people think that LASIK only lasts a few years, that simply isn’t true. In reality, it is a permanent solution to vision problems. Your eye surgeon will actually reshape your cornea. That means that your eyes can’t go back to how they were.

That doesn’t mean that your eyes can’t undergo some visual changes, though. Cataracts, presbyopia and other common age-related conditions can still change the quality of your vision over time. That is a part of life that LASIK cannot prevent.
LASIK is a permanent treatment.
No. Successful cataract surgery is possible for most people who have had LASIK surgery or other types of refractive surgery that reshape the cornea to correct vision. There is one important caveat, though. To ensure the most predictable vision outcome following cataract surgery, you need to provide your cataract surgeon with specific information about your eyes and eyesight from before and after your LASIK surgery.
Your eye doctor or LASIK surgeon will give you specific advice about when to stop wearing your contact lenses at your preoperative eye exam and/or LASIK consultation which is about a week. Wearing glasses too close to your laser eye surgery may result in inaccurate measurements, causing your results to be less effective. During this time period, wear your glasses instead.
Yes,LASIK surgery is designed to reshape the cornea permanently. This means that, once they've undergone this life-changing procedure, many of our patients won’t have to wear glasses or contact lenses in the decades to come.

That doesn’t mean that your eyes can’t undergo some visual changes, though. Cataracts, presbyopia and other common age-related conditions can still change the quality of your vision over time. That is a part of life that LASIK cannot prevent.
LASIK and other types of laser eye surgery, such as PRK and LASEK, have excellent safety profiles and very high success rates. They are designed to treat myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism, and can allow you to live without glasses or contacts.

If the LASIK flap is not made correctly, it may fail to adhere properly to the eye's surface or microscopic wrinkles called striae (STRIE-ee) could develop in the flap. These flap complications can cause optical aberrations and distorted vision. Flap Dislocation, Flap Detachment
Although lasik is permanent reshaping of cornea,that doesn’t mean that your eyes can’t undergo some visual changes, though. Cataracts, presbyopia and other common age-related conditions can still change the quality of your vision over time. That is a part of life that LASIK cannot prevent.
In nearly all cases, LASIK is performed on both eyes the same day at the same appointment time. LASIK surgery is very safe, and the procedure takes only about 10 minutes per eye, so usually there is no reason to schedule separate surgical times for each eye.
Study looked at physician satisfaction after they had laser vision correction themselves. These doctors reported high levels of satisfaction and better quality of life. In fact, 85% reported an actual increase in the quality of their vision as compared with when they wore glasses or contact lenses. Also, 39% reported that their ability to perform medical procedures accurately had improved.

So next time you see an eye doctor wearing glasses, it may just be that his specific condition cannot be overcome with LASIK, or perhaps he just feels more comfortable in glasses.
You might, Dry eye is a common aftereffect of LASIK, affecting approximately 50 percent of patients. The symptoms are usually mild and temporary, and they typically don’t last long and can be resolved by the usual tear drops.
No, you must have someone drive you home after LASIK surgery. Even though your vision may seem quite clear immediately after LASIK, some blurriness is common for several hours after surgery.
The actual procedure usually takes less than 10 minutes per eye. Depending on your prescription, and the amount of correction needed, the laser itself only takes 20-50 seconds to correct your vision. However, you need to stay in the hospital for 2-3 hours on your day of surgery.
Modern LASIK surgery can correct reading vision problems caused by presbyopia with a technique called monovision — where the LASIK surgeon fully corrects the refractive errors in one eye and intentionally leaves the other eye mildly nearsighted. The result: the fully corrected eye sees distant objects very clearly, and the nearsighted eye provides sharper near vision without reading glasses.
Two visits - once on the next day and then 2 weeks later. In case the patient has any problem he/she can visit anytime.
