LASIK (laser in situ keratomileusis) is a remarkable laser vision correction technique capable of treating a wide range of vision issues including near-sightedness, far-sightedness, and astigmatism.
It starts with a microkeratome (mechanical blade) or a precision femtosecond laser, used to create a thin surface flap of your cornea in seconds. Then the excimer laser, which has been programmed with your exact correction, applies a rapid, cool ultraviolet light that precisely removes a very small amount of tissue from the inner portion of the cornea. These short laser pulses correct the curvature of the cornea, allowing your vision to be focused clearly on the retina. The flap is then gently kept back into its original position where it quickly bonds back in place, restoring a smooth, intact surface.
Some basic requirements are: Healthy cornea, age 18 years or above and no active eye disease.
The decision to have laser vision correction depends on the results of a thorough evaluation. Just as you are a unique individual, each eye requires unique and careful examination. At Smartvision Eye Hospitals, we complete a comprehensive eye evaluation to determine whether or not you are suitable for laser vision correction.

During the consultation, your eye doctor will ask about your medical and surgical history and give you a comprehensive eye examination to evaluate your vision and assess whether you can undergo the procedure safely.
Before the procedure begins, your eyes are numbed using eye drops. Then the patient will be asked to focus on a special fixation light to activate the precision instrument. After a few seconds, the surgeon will fold away the corneal flap and reveals the middle layer of the cornea. Then the cornea is reshaped to bring back the vision. In the end, the corneal flap is repositioned.
After the surgery, the patient may feel itchy or burned in their eye. There may also be mild pain. So, avoid rubbing in these conditions. All these will disappear in a day or two. Rest in a dark room and wear dark glasses to protect the eyes from harmful UV or electronic light rays. Do not skip the antibiotics or anti-inflammatory medicine if your surgeon prescribes any. It takes at least 3 days to start recovery and up to 1 to 2 months for complete recovery post-surgery.

If you are 18 years of age and have a stable vision for at least 24 months, you are a step up for Lasik treatment. Also, you should not have a prior history of corneal diseases. If you have a prescription for glasses or contact lenses that falls within the specific parameters required for LASIK, you can have the surgery.
Comprehensive eye exam to measure your corneal thickness, examine your pupil size and refractive error, and assess your overall eye health. If you wear contact lenses, you will be required to stop wearing them for a certain period of time before your LASIK surgery. And these may vary depending on the person.
During LASIK surgery, a small flap is created in the cornea using a microkeratome or femtosecond laser. This flap is lifted, and an excimer laser is used to reshape the cornea to correct the refractive error. The flap is then repositioned, and the procedure is complete. The entire process usually takes less than 15 minutes per eye.
LASIK surgery is a permanent procedure, as it permanently changes the shape of the cornea to correct the refractive error. However, it is important to note that as we age, our eyes may undergo natural changes that can affect our vision, such as presbyopia. Additionally, LASIK surgery does not prevent other eye conditions, such as cataracts or glaucoma, from developing in the future.
Both LASIK surgery and contact lenses have their own risks and benefits. LASIK surgery is generally considered safe and has a high success rate, but there are still risks involved, such as dry eyes, infection, and vision problems. Contact lenses also have their own risks, such as corneal ulcers, infections, and discomfort. The safety of each treatment depends on several factors, including the patient's individual health and lifestyle. It is best to discuss the pros and cons of each option with an eye doctor to determine which option is best for you.
Private health insurance policies may cover LASIK surgery in Hyderabad, but it depends on the specific insurance policy and the individual's coverage. Some policies may have exclusions or limitations on coverage for elective procedures like LASIK surgery. It is best to check with your insurance provider directly to see if LASIK surgery is covered under your policy and to what extent.
Whether or not you can have LASIK surgery with other diseases depends on the specific disease and its impact on your eyes and overall health. Some medical conditions, such as autoimmune disorders, diabetes, and certain eye diseases, may increase the risk of complications during LASIK surgery. It is important to discuss your medical history and any existing conditions with an eye doctor to determine if you are a good candidate for LASIK surgery or if an alternative treatment option would be more appropriate.
LASIK surgery is typically not painful. During the procedure, numbing eye drops are used to minimize any discomfort. Some patients may feel slight pressure or a mild sensation of discomfort, but this is generally well-tolerated. After the surgery, some patients may experience mild discomfort, dry eyes, or itchiness, but these symptoms typically resolve within a few days. It is important to follow the post-operative instructions provided by your surgeon to ensure a smooth recovery.
LASIK surgery typically takes around 10 to 15 minutes per eye. However, the exact time can vary depending on factors such as the individual's eye condition, the technology used, and the surgeon's experience. While the actual surgical procedure is relatively quick, patients should expect to spend a few hours at the surgical center on the day of the procedure for pre-operative preparation and post-operative observation. It is important to schedule enough time for the surgery and recovery and to arrange for transportation home after the procedure.
After LASIK surgery, patients are usually allowed to go home on the same day. However, they should not drive themselves home and should arrange for transportation with a family member or friend. It is also important to have someone stay with them for the first few hours after the surgery to ensure their safety and to provide assistance if needed. Patients should follow the post-operative instructions provided by their surgeon and attend all scheduled follow-up appointments to monitor their recovery.
