Contact lenses after cataract surgery

A contact lens is a thin, curved, transparent medical device that is placed directly on the surface of the eye to correct vision or for therapeutic purposes. It serves as an alternative to eyeglasses. Contact lenses can be used to correct various vision problems, including nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), astigmatism, and even presbyopia (age-related difficulty in focusing on close objects). Contact lenses are made from various materials, including soft hydrogel materials and rigid gas-permeable materials. Soft lenses are more flexible and comfortable to wear, while rigid gas-permeable lenses allow for better oxygen flow to the cornea. There are different types of contact lenses based on their usage: Daily Wear Lenses: These are designed to be worn during the day and removed before sleeping. They are replaced daily, bi-weekly, or monthly, depending on the type. Extended Wear Lenses: These lenses are approved by eye care professionals for overnight wear. They allow more oxygen to reach the cornea, reducing the risk of certain complications. Disposable Lenses: These lenses are designed to be worn for a specific period and then discarded. They are available as daily disposables, weekly disposables, or monthly disposables. Toric Lenses: Toric lenses are used to correct astigmatism. They have different powers in different meridians of the lens. Multifocal Lenses: These lenses are used to correct presbyopia, allowing the wearer to see clearly at multiple distances. Colored Lenses: Colored contact lenses can change the appearance of the eye's color. They are available with or without prescription. It's important to note that proper care and hygiene are crucial when using contact lenses to prevent eye infections and other complications. An eye care professional, such as an optometrist or ophthalmologist, should be consulted for a thorough eye examination, prescription, and guidance on the correct use and care of contact lenses.

Will my number come back after lasik surgery?

Lasik has become one of the most popular surgery for getting rid of glasses. Whether my number will come back after few years is a common question that comes to one’s mind. Lasik surgery is a permanent treatment. In this corneal shape is altered which remains permanent. However with age certain changes take place internally in the eye that can give you blurred vision e.g when you develop cataract in old age if you develop diabetes in later age, in women hormonal changes can give blurred vision. You will also get reading glasses after 40-45 years of age.All this is unrelated to lasik surgery. In people who do extensive near work can develop blurred vision called pseudo myopia if adequate rest from near work is not taken but this is temporary. So with good technology and proper preoperative safety tests number coming back after lasik is almost impossible.

Advancements in LASIK Surgery Techniques: What You Need to Know

LASIK, which stands for Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis, is a well-known and popular surgical treatment used to address vision disorders such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. It is a form of refractive surgery intended to alter the cornea, the transparent front portion of the eye, in order to enhance how light enters the eye and is focused on the retina. LASIK surgery may reduce or get rid of the need for glasses or contact lenses by changing the shape of the cornea. In the following sections, we will explore some of the notable advancements in LASIK surgery techniques.

Is lasik safe for me?

Lasik is the most popular surgery to get rid of glasses. One of the most important question that comes to mind is the safety of the procedure.

Lasik is one of the most studied and researched elective surgical procedure in the world. Lasik as a procedure is being done for more than 25 years and this procedure has got US FDA approval in 1998.

We follow very strict protocols and run a number of diagnostic scans for your eye to determine eligibility for lasik.

Scans like a topography, tomography, scheimflug images, Anterior segment oct, a thorough slit lamp examination , tear drop cytology are perofrmed and this data is analysed using predictive artifical intelligence alogirthms for safety and effectiveness.

The magnitude of your number and asatigmatism are also taken into consideration.

Lasik surgery is completely safe and effective for those who pass these tests.

Bladeless lasik surgery with contoura greatly increases the safety profile of lasik.

Approximately 20 % of people who want to do lasik surgery are not suitable for lasik for variety of health and medical reasons including thin and damaged cornea, keratoconus or some chronic conditions such as uncontrolled diabetes and autoimmune diseases.

For these patients other lasers and modes of treatment are available to get rid of glasses like ICL, Refractive lens exchange, PRK or ASA.

At our clinic we have the most advanced technology and machines to do the safety tests including Pentacam, Visionix, Topolyser, Anterior Segment OCT , IOL master and ascan.
