What is LASIK Surgery

What is LASIK Surgery

LASIK (Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis) is a type of laser eye surgery that can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.It is a very common and safe procedure that involves reshaping the cornea, the outermost layer of the eye, with a laser in order to improve vision.

During the procedure, the eye surgeon will make a small flap in the cornea, and then use a laser to remove a very small amount of tissue from the cornea.After the tissue is removed, the cornea will be reshaped to correct vision.

The entire procedure usually takes around 15 minutes and you will often see an improvement in vision within 24 hours.The results of LASIK surgery are usually long-lasting and can improve vision to 20/20 or better.

However, it is important to note that there are risks associated with the procedure, such as glare, halos, dry eyes, and under- or over-correction.Your eye doctor will be able to explain to you the risks and benefits of the procedure in more detail and help you decide if it is the right choice for you.

  3. Refractive Surgery: Refractive surgery, such as PRK or LASEK, can be used to correct vision without the need for a corneal flap, as is required with LASIK.
  4. Intraocular Lenses: Intraocular lenses are another type of refractive surgery that can correct vision without the need for a corneal flap.
  5. Eyeglasses or Contact Lenses with Computerized Vision Therapy: Computerized vision therapy can be used to improve vision without surgery. It includes activities such as reading, playing games, and using a computer to improve near and far vision.

RELEX SMILE vs FemtoLasik : Which is better?

At RautEyeCare we always go with tried and tested technologies.

While we neither endorse nor recommend one technology over the other, three questions have to be asked while deciding what we do with our patients:

  1. Which technology has had the maximum amount of scientific evidence published about it? : FEMTOLASIK

  2. Which technology is still recommended for majority of patients, and has widest approval? : FEMTOLASIK

  3. Which technology is being used in leading centers around the world?FEMTOLASIK

Femtosecond LASIK is an established, safe and highly effective procedure.
SMILE being more recent has not had as much research performed on visual outcomes as compared to FEMTO LASIK.
As of 2019, SMILE was NOT APPROVED for hyperopia or mixed astigmatism in the USA. In addition, in the United States, surgeons are limited to 3 D of astigmatism or less with SMILE.

This is not to say that SMILE Is not safe or effective.

As per John Vukich, MD, who is in practice in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin,(USA), a majority of their patients are still offerred FEMTOSECOND LASIK, the main reason being the well known outcomes, and a huge amount of research and analysis that has already gone into FEMTO-LASIK. This is depsite the fact that SMILE is available at their center, and they were one of the primary investigators of the procedure.

FEMTOLASIK vs LASEK : Which is better?

LASEK is an older method, a modified form of PRK, in which a flap is made in the cornea and replaced. In case of LASEK the flap is more superficial as compared to LASIK.
We now recommend FEMTOSECOND LASIK which has a very quick post operative recovery compared to LASEK. It is also associated with almost no pain, and is very effective and safe.

After FEMTO-LASIK : what will my life be like?

After the surgery, you are expected to recover within 2-3 days. Most patients go back to normal work in the same week as the surgery.
There is virtually no pain, and you won't show any external signs of having had any surgery.
This is an ideal procedure before getting married, going for a challenging interview or even if you are a pilot or merchant navy aspirant.
Since recovery is so fast, there is no need for prolonged planning.
Most importantly there is ABSOLUTELY NO PAIN

Absolutely love how understanding Dr. Kumud Raut is. The only place where I have not been told about only the process of getting a surgery, but rather they insist on educating about how the eye functions and the importance of having a healthy eye before any surgery.
