Understanding Eye Surgery

LASIK (Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis)

  • How: - A laser is used to create a thin flap in the cornea. The flap is lifted, and an excimer laser reshapes the underlying corneal tissue to correct refractive errors.

  • For: Corrects myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism.

  • Recovery: Quick, with significant improvement in vision within 24-48 hours. Full recovery takes a few weeks.

  • Benefits: High success rate, minimal discomfort, and rapid visual recovery.

PRK (Photorefractive Keratectomy)

  • How: The outer layer of the cornea (epithelium) is removed, and an excimer laser reshapes the underlying corneal tissue.

  • For: Treats myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism.

  • Recovery: Longer than LASIK, with initial discomfort and blurred vision for a few days. Full recovery takes a few months.

  • Benefits: Suitable for patients with thin corneas who are not candidates for LASIK.

LASEK (Laser Epithelial Keratomileusis)

  • How: Similar to PRK, but the epithelial layer is preserved and replaced after laser treatment.

  • For: Corrects myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism.

  • Recovery: Similar to PRK, with a slightly longer recovery time than LASIK.

  • Benefits: Suitable for patients with thin or irregular corneas.

SMILE (Small Incision Lenticule Extraction)

  • How: A femtosecond laser creates a small, lens-shaped piece of tissue (lenticule) within the cornea. The lenticule is then removed through a small incision, reshaping the cornea.

  • For: Primarily used to treat myopia and mild astigmatism.

  • Recovery: Quick recovery similar to LASIK, with minimal discomfort.

  • Benefits: Minimally invasive and faster healing.

Eye Close Up

Cataract Surgery with Premium IOLs

  • How: The cloudy natural lens is removed and replaced with a premium intraocular lens (IOL) that can correct various refractive errors.

  • For: Corrects cataracts along with myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, and presbyopia.

  • Recovery: Rapid recovery, with most patients seeing well within a few days.

  • Benefits: Simultaneously addresses cataracts and refractive errors, reducing the need for glasses or contact lenses.

RLE (Refractive Lens Exchange) 

  • How: Similar to cataract surgery, the natural lens is removed and replaced with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL).

  • For: Corrects severe myopia, hyperopia, and presbyopia (age-related loss of near vision).

  • Recovery: Initial recovery takes a few days to weeks, with full adaptation over several months.

  • Benefits: Suitable for patients with presbyopia or those not eligible for corneal-based procedures.

ICL (Implantable Collamer Lens)

  • Recovery: Quick recovery, with improvement in vision within a few days to weeks.

  • Benefits: Reversible and can be an option for patients with very high refractive errors or thin corneas.

AK (Astigmatic Keratotomy)

  • How: Incisions are made on the cornea to reduce astigmatism by allowing the cornea to relax into a more spherical shape.

  • For: Corrects astigmatism.

  • Recovery: Initial recovery in a few days, with vision stabilization over a few months.
