No one really likes wearing glasses. Given an option every person would want to do away with this contraption that sits across your eyes and burdens your nose and ears.
Many techniques have been popular in the past for carrying out the treatment for fulfillment of the desire of being able to see clearly without glasses. Keratomileusis , Epikeratophakia and Radial Keratotomy are few of the notable techniques used with variable success.
Correction of glasses with Excimer Laser was introduced in India by Dr.Daljit Singh Eye Hospital in 1991 and we continue to carry out this procedure today with Seventh Generation machines and latest techniques. The last 30 years have revolutionized Laser vision correction.
We are proud to say that today we are even treating the children of patients whom we treated in the early nineties.
Today Laser vision correction has become a mainstay of correcting spectacle numbers.
Laser vision correction is a technique used to correct the spectacle number being worn by the patient . This treatment generally enables the patient to see clearly without glasses.
Patients of Myopia ( wearing minus glasses ) , Hypermetropia ( wearing plus glasses ) with or without astigmatism are suitable candidates for laser vision correction. In addition , the patient must have achieved 18+ age and his/her spectacle number must have remained stable for 6-12 months.
We can treat :
(-) Minus numbers
(+) Plus numbers
& Cylindrical numbers
Beyond using glasses and contact lenses , there are basically two different ways of correcting the number of glasses:-
1. Laser Vision Correction popularly known as LASIK LASER
2. Phakic Implantable Intraocular Lenses ( ICL / IPCL )
Yes , there are different techniques to correct glasses with Laser :-
1. PRK / LASEK / Streamlight
2. Microkeratome based LASIK
3. Bladefree Femto Laser LASIK. Bladefree LASIK utilizes two different lasers for doing laser vision correction .
We stopped doing Microkeratome based Lasik Surgery 5 years ago in favour of Bladefree Lasik Surgey , which is much safe with better results.
Bladefree Lasik workstation with the Femtosecond Laser on the left , the Excimer laser on the right and a swinging patient bed which shifts the patient between these two lasers.
When we check a person's refraction , we can only test the spherical and cylindrical number . In reality , the spectacle number is much more complex .
Sphere and cylinder are considered to be "Lower Order Abberrations" and can be made into spectacle numbers. Then there are "Higher order abberrations" in our refraction which could be measured with various instruments and may contribute to the overall error of our refraction and our visual acuity.
Till now these Higher order abberrations could only be measured . For the first time now , we can incorporate these higher order abberrations in the Lasik Laser vision correction protocol .
The resultant outcome gives much more refined and unadulterated vision. This is called Contura Vision Lasik Laser correction. You may even think about this as a unique fingerprint of vision correction.
For PRK you may need to stay for approximately 6 days
For Bladefree Contura Vision LASIK , approximately 3 days
We believe in making sure about the well being of our patients before we let them go home back to their city , hence the longer stay.Patients belonging to Amritsar may go home same day and come for followup as told.
Every organization has it's own set of regulations and medical guidelines . While we can only try to help give you freedom from glasses , your chances of finding employment with these organizations depend upon their medical guidelines and you need to understand your chances of making it.
