Frequently Asked Questions

There are 97% chances of the people to be free from their spectacles. 3% will have mild change from their zero targeted correction due to diverse recovery patterns in different people but will have their decreased dependence on spectacles. After 3-6 months, a laser improvement can be tried to correct these people further. People of age of 45, who have distance vision correction may require reading glasses.

Every surgery holds a surgical risk which is the reason Pre LASIK workup / Pre Tests are made so that any patient not eligible for the procedure can be ruled out. Some of the risks may include: • Infections – Modern day antibiotics can simply control and tackle infections. • Over or Under Correction – Can sometimes happen because of different healing responses of the body. This situation is rare and however if so happens, it can be efficiently managed by doing laser polishing after 6 months.

To be fit for laser surgery you have to meet some basic eligibility criteria • Minimum 18 years old • Specs number must be stable for the last 6 months. Minor variations of 0. 25 D and 0.50 D are satisfactory. • Ladies should not be pregnant or on breastfeed or 6 months post-pregnancy. • You must not be consuming any medicines such as steroids. After you meet these basic criteria, then you will have to undergo a Pre Lasik workup test which involves 6 to 7 different kinds of tests to eventually declare you the right candidate for laser surgery.

• Pre Lasik work up test involves a series of 6-7 tests that involve: • Examining the power and pressures of your eye • Monitoring your corneal thickness and any additional surface irregularities on the cornea. • Examining for dry eyes • Checking the Retina movement This test normally takes 2 hours and if you use contact lenses it is best to stop them 3 days before you undergo these test.

No laser surgery is flapless. Even surgeries like SMILE, which are said as flap free build a small flap. The only surgeries which are flap free are ICL, wherein a lens is inserted inside the eye that is implantation.

ICL i.e Implantable Collamer Lenses or phakic intraocular lenses are lenses implanted in the eye to work with the natural crystalline lens of the eye so that it can correct a refractive error with or without astigmatism. ICL can correct the big refractive error in the thin cornea.

The main contrast between ICL and traditional IOLs is the fact that an ICL operates in conjunction with the eye’s crystalline lens. Even it is performed in a young patient who has no cataract. An IOL substitutes the eye’s natural lens during cataract surgery. IOLs are done to manage Cataract and ICL manage refractive error i.e helps in specs removal.

When you plan to undergo any additional eye surgery it’s your responsibility to inform your doctor about previous surgery so that the treatments plan can be adjusted accordingly.
