OUR APPROACH

At the ProLasik Clinic, utmost care is taken to ensure patient safety and consistent results. We use advanced technology so that it reduces the chances of damage to the vision. We are proud to say that at present, we are the only center in the country offering “Completely Bladeless”, exclusive Femtosecond Laser LASIK solutions. Additionally, we use comprehensive eye exam to determine the eligibility of a patient for LASIK. In case the patient is not eligible for LASIK we have other procedures such as Photorefractive Kertectomy (PRK), implantable IOL lenses.

OUR PROCESS

The patient undergoes a comprehensive eye exam to check the overall health of the eyes. These tests include detailed optical maps of your eye from wavefront scans and corneal tomography. A Femtosecond laser is used to create a flap in the patient’s eye. This has increased the safety of the procedure because there is no requirement to make the flap using a mechanical razor (blade), as was the case earlier. The curvature of the cornea is reshapedto correct focus using an excimer laser guided by information from pre-operative tests.After the procedure, the surgeon and the counselor continue to meet with the patient for post-operative testing and follow-up care.

FAQ

What Are Refractive Errors?

A refractive error is a common eye disorder which is observed very often. It occurs when the eye cannot clearly focus the images from the outside world. The result of refractive errors is blurred vision, which is sometimes so severe that it causes visual impairment. It is disease which can’t be prevented but can be diagnosed.

What are the types of Refractive errors?

The four most common refractive errors are:

  • myopia (nearsightedness): difficulty in seeing distant objects clearly;
  • hyperopia (farsightedness): difficulty in seeing close objects clearly;
  • astigmatism: distorted vision resulting from an irregularly curved cornea, the clear covering of the eyeball.
  • presbyopia: which leads to difficulty in reading or seeing at arm’s length, it is linked to ageing and occurs almost universally.
What is lasik?

LASIK stands for laser in situ keratomileusis, which means using a laser underneath a corneal flap (in situ) to reshape the cornea (keratomileusis). This procedure uses a highly specialized laser specially designed to treat refractive errors, improve vision, and reduce or eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses. This laser procedure alters the shape of the cornea and makes the vision clearer.

How does LASIK work?

A specially trained and experienced eye surgeon first creates a precise, thin hinged corneal flap using a microkeratome. The surgeon then pulls back the flap to expose the underlying corneal tissue, and then the excimer laser ablates (reshapes) the cornea in a unique pre-specified pattern for each patient. The flap is then gently repositioned onto the underlying cornea without sutures.

Am I a good candidate for LASIK?

Refractive surgery is not for everyone. In addition to this if you wish to undergo lasik surgery you need to go for a complete eye exam to find out if you are a candidate for surgery.

What are the benefits of LASIK?

For most candidates, LASIK surgery usually involves little pain and recovery is rapid. Other benefits may include:

  • LASIK can correct a wide range of refractive errors including nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism of varying degrees.
  • LASIK can be repeated to correct the vision further.
  • The eyes stabilize within three months after LASIK surgery.
  • The eye is not structurally weakened.
  • LASIK usually causes little or no scarring of the cornea.
  • Post-operative care is usually limited to using eye drops for a week after surgery.
