LASIK Eye Surgery

LASIK eye surgery can help people who are nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism correct their vision.

It's one of several vision-correcting operations that include reshaping your cornea, the clear front area of your eye, so that light focuses on the retina in the back.

What is the purpose of LASIK eye surgery?

When light does not focus properly on your retina, your vision becomes hazy. Doctors term this condition as a refractive error. The basic types are as follows:

  • Nearsightedness is a condition in which a person's vision is blurred (myopia). Things are clear when they are close to you, but they are murky when they are farther away.
  • Hyperopia is a condition in which you can see things clearly farther away but objects closer to you appear fuzzy.
  • Astigmatism may cause things to become fuzzy due to the shape of your eye.

The Advantages of LASIK Surgery

The following are some of the advantages of LASIK eye surgery:

  • It has been around for over 25 years.With LASIK, over 96 percent of patients achieve their vision goals. This number could be raised even higher with an improvement.
  • There is very little, if any, discomfort.
  • There are no bandages or stitches on the wound.
  • Your doctor can alter your vision if it changes as you get older.
  • After LASIK, you will probably not need glasses or contacts as much, if at all.

Individual eye surgeons may specialize in specific types of laser eye surgery. There are usually minor distinctions between them, and none can clearly say which one is superior to the other. Depending on your circumstances and interests, you might want to look at the following options:

  • LASIK- Laser Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis-

    LASIK involves creating a partial-thickness corneal flap and using an excimer laser to ablate the corneal bed. It is now the most often performed laser eye surgery. The flap is then returned to its previous place. There is no discomfort during surgery, and eyesight recovery normally takes 1 to 2 days.

  • Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK)-

    Instead of creating a flap, PRK scrapes away the top layer (epithelium). This corneal abrasion heals in three to four days and causes slight discomfort and blurred vision.

    The potential benefit of PRK being safer for people who are more likely to be hit in the eye, such as those who participate in contact sports, law enforcement, or the military, was seen to outweigh the negatives. PRK, on the other hand, is unlikely to provide a significant advantage because the risk of eyeball rupture is low even with standard LASIK. LASIK is also a superior alternative than PRK for more severe nearsightedness (myopia).

  • Laser Assisted Subepithelial Keratectomy (LASEK)-

    Similar to LASIK surgery, the flap is created using a specific cutting device (microkeratome) and the cornea is exposed to ethanol. It is a wonderful alternative for patients with thin corneas because the approach allows the surgeon to remove less corneal tissue. For individuals who are at a higher risk of eye injury, LASEK provides no significant advantages over LASIK.

  • Epi-LASIK- Epithelial laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis-

    In an epi-LASIK procedure, your surgeon separates the epithelium from the centre region of the cornea (stroma) with a mechanical blunt blade device (epikeratome), then reshapes the cornea with a laser. LASEK is a surgery very similar to this one.

  • Small-incision lenticule extraction (SMILE)-

    In this newer type of refractive surgery, the cornea is sculpted using a laser to generate a lens-shaped patch of tissue (lenticule) beneath the cornea surface. After the lenticule has been used to reshape the cornea, it is removed through a very small incision.

  • Intraocular lenses-

    To improve vision, intraocular lenses (corrective lenses) can be surgically inserted in the eye. During cataract surgery, this is a common technique (in which the old, cloudy natural lens is removed). It could be a feasible alternative to LASIK for elderly people who may need cataract surgery in the future.

    Younger people with high degrees of nearsightedness who cannot be treated efficiently with corrective lenses may be provided intraocular lenses. This is not, however, a frequent option for most people.

Am I a good Candidate for LASIK?

The ideal candidates for Lasik eye surgery are those with a moderate degree of refractive error and no severe vision problems.

Your eye surgeon will ask you a lot of questions about your eye health and examine your eyes to make sure you don't have any issues that could lead to complications or poor surgical results.

Questions to Ask

We at IndiCure completely understand your concerns and it is always our endeavor to provide the best outcome for every patient. Following is the list of questions you must ask before you embark on your journey for LASIK eye surgery in India.

  • Is it time for LASIK eye surgery?
  • Is the surgeon board certified?
  • How experienced is the Surgeon?
  • Which language does the surgeon speak?
  • Is the surgery done in a well-equipped facility?
  • Can you give me any information on outcomes and complication rates?
  • How much pain can I expect, and how will it be managed in the hospital and after I go home?
  • What surgical option is recommended for me?
  • What about the risks involved?
  • Does the surgeon use a certified anesthetist?
  • How long will the recovery period be?

Preparation for the Surgery

Prepare to answer questions about your:

  • Medical history and exams
  • Previous surgeries
  • Current medication review
  • History of smoking, drugs, or alcohol
Question to Ask

Surgical Procedure (Pictorial)

Before undergoing LASIK surgery, your eye surgeon will take detailed measurements and assess your eye's overall health.

Step 1

Your doctor will put drops in your eyes to numb them. A moderate sedative can also be requested.

Step 2

A microkeratome or a femtosecond laser will be used to form a tiny flap in your cornea.

Step 3

They'll peel it back and use a laser to sculpt the tissue underneath.

Step 4

After that, the flap will be replaced and the process will be finished.

What Results can I expect from LASIK?

LASIK has a high success rate, particularly in the treatment of nearsightedness (myopia). According to follow-up studies, 94 percent to 100 percent of nearsighted patients achieve vision of 20/40 or better. 3-10% of those who get LASIK require further surgery.


Your eyes will very certainly heal quickly. Most individuals see an improvement in their vision within a few days.

Your eyes will be dry, even if it doesn't feel like it. Your doctor will prescribe prescription eye drops to keep your eyes moist and avoid infection and irritation.

Do not swim or use a hot tub for at least two weeks after surgery. You might obtain a plastic shield to protect your eyes while you sleep for a few days.

Frequently Asked Questions

LASIK surgery has a high success rate. Vision loss is infrequent as a result of complications, and the majority of people are satisfied with the results. Two of the most prevalent adverse effects include dry eyes and transient vision issues (such as glare). Symptoms, on the other hand, usually fade away after a few weeks or months, and just a few people believe they're a long-term problem.

These estimates are based on ideal conditions, and LASIK surgery is exceedingly safe and results in excellent vision in the vast majority of cases. You could require glasses if you're reading or doing other activities in low light.

India is one of the most favored destinations for medical tourists seeking quality eye treatment at affordable prices. The country has few of the best doctors trained at best medical schools in the west and. The cost of LASIK surgery is a fraction of what it costs to get the same surgery at the best medical centers in the world without any compromise on the quality.

LASIK surgery is permanent, with a few exceptions. Only in a few circumstances can the prescription and correction regress, resulting in your eyesight returning to its original state.

Most LASIK eye doctors believe that the age range of 25-40 is ideal for LASIK eye surgery candidacy for a variety of reasons. By the age of 25, prescriptions for eyeglasses and contact lenses have most likely stabilized. A stable prescription is one of the criteria of a suitable LASIK candidate.

The procedure for LASIK eye surgery is not painful. Before the surgery, your surgeon will place numbing eye drops in both of your eyes. While there may be some pressure during the procedure, there should be no pain.

LASIK (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis) is a procedure that rebuilds the cornea and corrects myopia. The majority of people who have the operation have their myopia corrected. However, in a small number of people, the lens may change as they age.

There have been no reports of people becoming blind as a result of LASIK surgery. According to a recent study, the risk of getting blind from a contact lens infection is 34 times higher than the chance of becoming blind following LASIK.

LASIK is usually recognised as a safe surgery with a low complication rate, despite the fact that all operations have the potential for complications and side effects. LASIK is one of the safest elective surgical treatments available today, with a complication rate of less than 1%.

LASIK is a procedure that can be done once in a lifetime, once every 20 years, or once every ten years. The operation's long-term effects are decided by a variety of factors, including the patient's age at the time of the procedure and any medical concerns that may arise as one gets older and cause eyesight loss.

LASIK is now available to adults aged 18 and up, according to the FDA. Furthermore, for a variety of reasons, most doctors will not perform LASIK on anyone under the age of 18. To begin, eyesight changes continue well into adulthood. Most providers will not perform LASIK on anyone under the age of 18 since eyes continue to evolve throughout early adulthood.

Because your eyes are still recuperating, they will be most sensitive in the first 24 hours after the LASIK procedure. As a result, it's advised to avoid watching television for at least 24 hours.

To relieve any leftover discomfort, patients should continue to use the pharmaceutical eye drops as indicated, as well as lubricating eye drops and/or pain relievers. Applying a cool compress to your closed eyelids may also help.

The most common LASIK side effects are minor dry eye, burning, and itching, which affect 20 percent to 40% of those who get the operation. These symptoms normally peak three months following surgery and fade away within six to twelve months, but this is not always the case.

People with severe dry eyes or any other irregularity of the cornea, such as keratoconus are not good candidates for LASIK.

Patient Testimonials

  • Having been home a few days now I can get my thoughts together and give my heartfelt thanks for the support and encouragement I got from IndiCure. Obviously, there was a certain amount of trepidation going to what has a reputation of being a third world country for a major operation like knee replacement, having received the type of treatment which I would think only the Royal family would receive in this country I wonder which is the third world country. From the organization arranged by your good self to absolutely first-class attention at the hospital and the service of doctors and his wonderful team all of whom spoke English, the nursing was one to one and my well-being was their only concern.

    The operation has been a complete success. I am so happy with the results. The friendliness from everyone from consultant to ancillary workers was amazing.

    Thank you,

    Ms. Beth Brown,United Kingdom
