Questions and answers

What is LASIK?

LASIK (Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis) is one of the most popular and safe options to restore vision. This high-tech operation allows you to correct even the most serious violations in the shortest term.

The LASIK eye surgery is performed using an excimer laser generating powerful ultraviolet radiation. Laser radiation acts directly on the inner layers of the cornea and the outer surface of an eye is preliminarily bent through a microsurgical incision.

What are the main advantages of LASIK operation in India?

The LASIK eye surgery in India is popular due to some indisputable benefits:

  • 96% of patients have vision enhancement after the surgery
  • the LASIK method is recognized by the world-leading ophthalmologists as a safe and effective procedure
  • necessary outcomes are achieved with minimal risks and side effects
  • it is possible to correct the vision in both eyes in one procedure
  • the procedure takes 10 minutes
  • LASIK has the widest range of applications: it corrects both myopia, hyperopia and eliminates astigmatism
  • the result of the operation is stable — the risk of subsequent visual impairment is minimal.

What are the detriments of the LASIK vision correction surgery?

The LASIK laser correction procedure also has some disadvantages that you should be aware of before going into the surgery:

  • age restrictions — persons under 18 years of age cannot have LASIK surgery because the vision change in a child or adolescent in the future is very difficult to predict. The maximum age for the operation is 65 years (depending on the technical capabilities of the clinic)
  • high price — the procedure is not expensive, however, you will spend significantly more money on glasses or lenses
  • medical contraindications — eyelid diseases, individual features of an eye structure, and so on.

Who is a candidate for LASIK eye surgery?

Specialists recommend LASIK surgery to patients aged 18-65 years to treat the following diseases:

  • myopia — up to -12D (in individual cases — up to -15D)
  • farsightedness — up to +6D
  • astigmatism — up to ± 6D.

What are the contraindications for the LASIK procedure?

Doctors do not recommend laser eye correction for patients with cataracts, glaucoma, keratoconus, as well as with diabetes, arthritis, blood vessel diseases.

The operation is strictly contraindicated for patients with progressive visual impairment, eye inflammation, lens spasms, for pregnant women, or during the lactating period. The doctor may detect some individual contraindications during a preliminary examination.

What diagnostics are needed before the operation?

Diagnostic tests are necessary before the procedure. Only after that specialists develop an individual treatment plan. Diagnostics is performed using modern computerized equipment, which allows you to assess the parameters of the visual system, identify the cause of visual impairment, and predict the result of the operation more accurately.

The diagnostic program usually includes:

  • hepatitis B and C blood tests
  • Wassermann test (WR)
  • HIV antibody/antigen test
  • general blood analysis
  • electrocardiogram (EKG).

Tests should be passed no more than a month before the procedure.

Except for the blood tests, the patient needs to undergo eye examinations as:

  • Refractive error diagnosis
  • Wavefront (CustomVue)
  • Optical quality analysis system (OQAS)
  • Optical coherence tomography (OCT).

What are the steps of LASIK eye surgery?

The LASIK procedure is minimally invasive and does not affect the internal tissues of the eye. It is carried out in several steps and takes 10-15 minutes. 

  1. An ophthalmologist administers local anesthesia using eye drops.
  2. The doctor forms a flap of the upper layer of the cornea and bends it with a microsurgical instrument (microkeratome) or a Femto laser.
  3. With the help of an excimer laser, the doctor acts on the cornea deep layers forming the desired curvature of its surface.
  4. The flap of the cornea layer is returned to the place and fixed.
  5. The cornea is treated with an anti-inflammatory drug.

How long is rehabilitation after the operation in India?

Vision correction with LASIK technique does not require hospitalization. The operated person stays in the clinic for 1.5-2 hours. 

The preparative period lasts 10-20 minutes, the operation itself — 10-15 minutes. After the correction, the patient has a rest for about an hour, then the doctor examines him/her and gives recommendations. The patient gets a set of medications, including eye drops, analgesic, and anti-inflammatory drugs.

In 24-48 hours after the surgery, the patient comes back to the clinic in India for an eye check-up. Read more about the rehab after the LASIK procedure here.

What are the risks of LASIK eye surgery?

The risk of complications after the LASIK eye correction is minimal. 96% is a success rate of this laser surgery. However, it is still a surgery, so possible complications are:

  • drooping eyelids or ptosis (temporary)
  • corneal edema
  • dry eye syndrome (DES)
  • allergic reaction
  • slow wound healing
  • epithelial ingrowth under the flap
  • vision regression
  • astigmatism.

To reduce possible risks, it is necessary not to ignore the postoperative examination and follow all the doctor's recommendations.
