Kalyan woman got freedom from glasses despite having High myopia

nusring home

28-year-old Archana Joshi* worked as a nurse in a nursing home located at Kalyan. She was always a studious girl but disliked wearing eyeglasses. She started using contact lenses and thought that she would be relieved from the hassles of wearing glasses. After few months, she was frustrated even with contact lenses and wanted to get rid of it.

She shared this problem with her family and soon they visited Dr. Vandana Jain at Advanced Eye Hospital & Institute (AEHI) in Sanpada, Navi Mumbai based on her friend’s recommendation. Subsequently, she booked an appointment with AEHI.

Pre-LASIK evaluation revealed that she had -9.00 eye power in both her eyes.  This eye power was stable for more than a year and also that she had no previous eye problem. Systemic evaluation revealed that myopia runs in her family. Her pre-lasik evaluation was conducted which was essentially normal. Even though her corneal thickness was normal but given the high power it was insufficient for the laser vision correction surgery.

Dr. Jain diagnosed her with high myopia and advised Implantable Collamer Lenses (ICL) implantation as vision correcting refractive surgery.

Implantable Contact Lenses, also called Phakic IOLs (or Phakic intra ocular lenses) are lenses that are surgically placed in front of the natural lens of the eye. They work just like contact lenses or glasses – by bending rays of light on to the back of the eye, the retina. The only difference is that instead of sitting on your eye like the usual contact lenses, these implantable contact lenses are placed inside your eye. However, unlike regular contact lenses these do not need to be removed and they become part of a person’s eye.

ICL surgery does not alter the curvature of cornea at all. Through a keyhole incision, ICL is inserted inside the eye. By virtue of its negligible effect on the corneal curvature the quality of vision in most cases is even superior to Lasik. Night vision issues like glare, etc. are negligible after ICL surgery in most people.

ICL has many advantages over LASIK such as better quality vision, procedure is reversible, corneal tissue is not removed, hence has negligible effect on the tear layer.

Archana felt confident that she was in safe hands at AEHI and went ahead with ICL surgery.

Archana was explained that there may be some mild discomfort or a gritty sensation for a few days after the procedure. Post ICL surgery, any strenuous activity should be avoided for minimum 3 to 4 days.

People like Archana who have high myopia are sometimes not suitable for Lasik surgery. But other options like ICL may be a good option for correction of eye power. Besides this people with high myopia should undergo regular retinal evaluations as the risk of retinal complications like retinal tears, retinal detachments etc are much higher in these group of people.

Juinagar youngster avails flapless and bladeless, SMILE LASIK from AEHI

Priti Tandon* had always been a confident girl right since childhood. She was an active player in sports and theatres in her school days. However, as she grew up, these recreational activities found its place in the back burner due to various reasons. Life moved on, and so did several things in Priti’s life.

Box cricket

Box cricket

One day in the summer season, the company for which she worked, a nationalized bank in Navi Mumbai, organized a competition for box cricket especially for women. This announcement instantly got Priti excited. However, there was only one problem, which she faced – her thick spectacles.

Since, there was three months window, she thought to herself as to try LASIK surgery. Not to mention that she was already tired of the thick glasses. So, she started reading about LASIK on internet and soon came across a blog everything about LASIK surgery. She felt confident and booked an appointment with Advanced Eye Hospital & Institute (AEHI), near Vashi.

EYE CHECK UP AT NAVI MUMBAI

EYE CHECK UP AT NAVI MUMBAI

On the appointment day at AEHI, she underwent detailed eye check-up. Her uncorrected visual acuity was finger counting from 3 metres in the right eye and 6/60 in the left eye. Her eye pressure was within the normal range. Luckily, her fundus was also normal.

Priti expressed her desire to Dr. Vandana Jain, a Cornea, LASIK and Cataract surgeon to undergo LASIK at the earliest. As it was her long-lost wish to be eyeglasses free. Also, she was excited to participate in the women’s cricket tournament.

Dr. Jain then advised her to undergo detailed pre lasik evaluation which included tests like corneal topography, IOL master, contrast sensitivity, muscle balance testing and dry eye analysis. Priti eventually did go through these tests and heaved a sigh of relief learning that she could opt for any type of LASIK surgery. She discussed about the various LASIK options with Dr. Jain. After being thoroughly convinced, she opted for ReLEx SMILE LASIK.

ReLEx SMILE LASIK is the most advanced and safest type of LASIK (“Laser Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis”) currently available. The recovery period is short and hence one can return to work within a day itself.

ReLEx SMILE LASIK

ReLEx SMILE LASIK

Relex Smile Lasik is a no flap no blade type of laser eye correction surgery (flapless lasik). In this surgery, tiny hole (2-3 mm) is created by femtolaser in the periphery of the cornea (bladeless lasik). The same laser beam also creates a tiny disc of the corneal tissue. This disc is then removed from the tiny incision, thus changing the curvature of the cornea and correcting the eye power.

After the procedure, she was relieved to bid goodbye to her glasses as well as high eye power. During the follow up session, she thanked Dr. Jain and the entire team of AEHI wholeheartedly.

Apart from being flapless and bladeless, SMILE LASIK also does not create flap-related complications and reduces the risk of post-surgery dry eye symptoms.

After two months, she stepped onto the cricket field with sheer joy filled in her heart.

Soft Contact Lens User From Vikhroli Avails FEMTO LASIK From AEHI

Supriya Jain*, a 34-year-old worked as a website developer in an advertising company in Chembur. On weekends, she used to follow her passion of classical dancing. For various dance performances, she started wearing soft contact lenses. With the passage of time, she started experiencing mild dryness in her eyes.

This eye problem persisted and slowly aggravated over two years. Finally, she decided to undergo LASIK to get rid of the contact lenses and her glasses.

After  pondering over it, Supriya booked an appointment with Advanced Eye Hospital & Institute (AEHI), near Vashi, Navi Mumbai based on the excellent reviews on Just dial after searching for the best eye hospital in Mumbai.

At AEHI, she was referred to Dr. Vandana Jain, a LASIK, Cornea and Cataract surgeon.

She underwent detailed pre Lasik evaluation that included tests like corneal topography, IOL master, contrast sensitivity, muscle balance testing and dry eye analysis. She was glad to know that she had normal results of the pre-LASIK tests.

Dr. Vandana asked Supriya to stop using contact lens and take regular periodic breaks whenever she uses computer like devices. Besides she prescribed some lubricating drops to Supriya to reduce the sensation of dryness.

After ten days, Supriya discussed various types of LASIK surgery with Dr. Jain. After being thoroughly counselled, she opted for FEMTO LASIK.

Femto lasik (Bladeless Lasik)

Femto LASIK is a bladeless way of correcting refractive error compared to  the conventional LASIK. In FEMTO LASIK, a FemtoSECOND Laser machine is used to create the corneal flap with the aid of femtosecond laser instead of the blade – microkeratome.

Patient is first positioned under the Femto Lasik machine. The cup of the Femto second laser machine touches the eye and applies pressure on the eye surface. Overall, the flap creation with femto second laser is far more precise and accurate compared to blade based flap creation. Once the flap is created, patient bed moves to the Excimer laser machine. Excimer laser precisely burns the corneal tissue and reshapes the cornea. Flap is then repositioned and it again becomes a part of the cornea. So, first a flap is created and then Excimer laser ablation is done.

Supriya thanked Dr. Jain and all the staff of AEHI team for wonderful experience of undergoing FEMTO LASIK.

IS LASEK AND LASIK THE SAME?

LASIK vs LASEK

LASIK vs LASEK Image source: Pinterest

The most common vision problem an individual faces is near-sightedness or myopia. In this eye condition, the light ray enters our eye along the visual axis through the outermost layer – cornea but focus in front of the retinal layers. This gives blurry vision for distance objects, while near vision is normal. This error can be easily detected during a normal eye check-up.

Myopia

Near-sightedness or Myopia

Near-sightedness can be corrected by simple measures like eyeglasses or contact lenses or by various laser treatments (after the age of 18 or when eye power stabilizes). Options for this laser treatment include laser-assisted subepithelial keratectomy (LASEK) and laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis (LASIK), photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), FEMTO LASIK, and ReLEx SMILE Lasik.

At Advanced Eye Hospital and Institute, Sanpada, Navi Mumbai, we observe that many patients use LASEK and LASIK interchangeably. However, it is not true because both might be phonetically similar, but these are different procedures.

LASIK is a type of vision correction procedure wherein a flap is created which is thick enough to cut the epithelial as well as some portion of the stromal layer of the cornea. LASEK differs in that only the superficial area of the epithelium of the cornea is separated and an epithelial flap is created.

The similarity between the two is that both involve using a laser to shape the cornea that corrects the eye power and creating flaps.

Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK)

Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) in Navi Mumbai

Hence, LASEK is very similar to PRK.  The only difference is that in PRK the epithelial layer is removed and discarded whereas in LASEK depending on the surgeon’s preference the epithelial flap may be repositioned over the cornea after the laser ablation. This reduces the pain in the immediate post-operative period. Some surgeons don’t prefer to retain the epithelial flap as it may interfere with healing and may delay it.

In order to identify if LASEK is better than LASIK, various studies have been conducted. These findings reveal that LASIK and LASEK both are effective for correcting mild to moderate nearsightedness and myopic astigmatism. Most often the choice of procedure is dependent on some of the factors. Borderline thin corneas, mild topographic abnormalities, profession with risk of flap displacement, patients prone to dry eyes, patients who have had previous eye surgeries may be better for LASEK/PRK then Lasik.  On the other hand, LASIK has many other advantages like shorter and painless recovery period, quick stabilization of the cornea, etc. over LASEK and PRK.

The more advanced version of LASIK is Small incision lenticule extraction (SMILE) LASIK. It combines the advantages of LASIK and LASEK. There is no flap creation so there is increased safety and there is no epithelium removal so there is quick recovery. Besides Relex smile Lasik is a quick procedure, causes low dry eye problems post operation, and allow most people to get back to their normal life style in a day or two.

Even though medical science has advanced a lot, it is very essential and crucial to undergo pre-LASIK evaluation and then take informed decision.

Koperkhairane man fulfilled his desire of freedom from glasses through FEMTO LASIK at AEHI

Vikram Lakhotia* worked as an assistant manager in a healthcare company situated in Turbhe. He loved his job but somehow, he never felt assertive enough about himself and his work because of his thick spectacles. He would often go for eye check-up and then return home without asking for LASIK opinion.

Healthcare

One fine day at a family get together, Vikram confessed about his desire to undergo LASIK to his family doctor. His family doctor encouraged him and recommended Advanced Eye Hospital and Institute (AEHI) in Sanpada, Navi Mumbai. After the discussion, he felt confident and in no time, booked an appointment at AEHI. On the day of his visit, he was first made to undergo pre-LASIK evaluation.

Thickglasses

Detailed pre Lasik evaluation included tests like corneal topography, IOL master, contrast sensitivity, muscle balance testing and dry eye analysis. Eye tests revealed he had -6.00/-1X90 D eye power in both eyes. Further, he also had mild Blepharitis in both the eyes.

Refractive Types of Regular Astigmatism

Refractive Types of Regular Astigmatism

Compound Myopic Astigmatism is an eye condition wherein the light ray falls at two different points but before the retina. The principal meridians are the meridians of highest and lowest refracting eye powers. The amount of astigmatism is equal to the difference in refracting power of the two principal meridians.

Dr. Vandana Jain prescribed him a tear producing eye drop and eye ointment. She further advised him to do hot fomentation & lid scrubs and asked him to follow up after two weeks.

 Two weeks later, Vikram’s lid margin appeared healthier.

Vikram discussed various LASIK options with Dr. Jain. He heaved a sigh of relief learning that he could opt for any type of LASIK surgery. After being thoroughly counselled, he opted for FEMTO LASIK.

Excimer laser precisely burns the corneal tissue and reshapes the cornea. Flap is then repositioned and it again becomes a part of the cornea. So, first a flap is created and then Excimer laser ablation is done.

Vikram’s joy was limitless when he was able to see himself in mirror from a distance after FEMTO LASIK procedure. During the follow up session, he thanked Dr. Jain and the entire staff of AEHI wholeheartedly.

In today’s era, where there are so many advancements in the technologies, and availability of best eye doctors, one need not postpone their desires especially for procedure like LASIK where safety can be evaluated by pre-lasik evaluation.

LASIK surgery is best way to get freedom from glasses and contact lenses! Many patients have concern about post-Lasik recovery which is understandable. Although, Vikram had -6.00 eye power, he was still suitable for LASIK, as his corneal layer was adequately thick. Hence, ablation of cornea could be performed safely. For patients, whose pre-LASIK evaluation shows that their cornea is thin, they can choose Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK).

Why do we experience dry eyes after LASIK?

The most common problem faced by a lot of patients after they undergo LASIK is experiencing dry eyes.  This can obviously make them uncomfortable after Lasik surgery. Patients may experience dryness in eyes, feeling of grittiness and eye tiredness. Some of the patients complain of increased light sensitivity after Lasik.

Dry eyes

It is observed that patients who had dry eyes prior to undergoing LASIK had most complaints of dry eyes after Lasik than those who did not have any eye problem prior to Lasik.

People who are at risk of developing dryness after LASIK surgery are:

  • Patients with high myopia i.e. high eye power ranging from -9.00 to -14.00 D
  • People who have pre-existing dry eyes
  • People with pre-existing lid disorders like Blepharitis etc
  • Dry eye test result showing reading less than 10mm on Schirmer’s test paper before LASIK surgery
  • Dry eye test

    Dry eye test

  • Prolonged use of contact lens before undergoing LASIK
  • Patients with diabetes mellitus, prior blepharoplasty, lagophthalmos, previously undergone refractive correction surgeries, etc.
  • Patients who spend a lot of time with gadgets like mobile and laptops etc
  • Patients who are spending most of their time in air-conditioned atmosphere

 

Treatment of Dryness after LASIK

Eye specialists who are LASIK surgeons will always treat and try to stabilize the tear film secretion, increase moisture and lubrication over the surface of the eye.

Hence, artificial tears are chief treatment for patients with post-LASIK dry eye besides treating any known eye diseases contributing to it and managing the life style.

Moreover, there are also eye care devices for treating dry eyes like punctal plugs, which are effective, safe and reversible method of preserving tears over the eye surface. These plugs not only help in improving the dry eye symptoms but also aid in enhancing the quality of vision.

There are also other treatment methods like Hot fomentation, topical cyclosporine, topical steroids, bandage contact lenses and sometimes surgical procedures depending on the severity and its impact.

It is important to undergo an eye check-up as soon as you feel discomfort in your eyes. The dry eye treatment post Lasik is tailored to the severity and the life style of the patient.

Thane girl availed EPI-LASIK from Advanced Eye Hospital

Sheetal Aarya*, a 41 year old, Thane resident was working as a Sales Manager in a pharmaceutical company. After reaching home, she would watch television for a while then cook food. She would not hit the bed until she reads atleast few chapters of her new book. One day after she finished her dinner, she got a phone call from one of her old friend. Conversation lasted for more than an hour.

Sales professional from Thane

Her friend’s daughter had undergone LASIK surgery the previous month from Advanced Eye Hospital and Institute (AEHI) in Sanpada. Her friend’s daughter had been super delighted to get rid of her glasses. This conversation revoked Sheetal’s long lost desire to get freedom from spectacles.

Sheetal decided to take the plunge and visit the best eye specialist at AEHI.

In no time, Sheetal booked an appointment with Dr. Vandana Jain at Advanced Eye Hospital.  On the day of her appointment, she informed that she wanted to undergo LASIK eye surgery.

Sheetal underwent a detailed pre Lasik evaluation which included tests like corneal topography, IOL master, contrast sensitivity, muscle balance testing and dry eye analysis.

Dr. Jain evaluated her pre-LASIK work up report, it showed that her cornea, retina, lens, optic nerve were all in healthy state of condition, expect that she had compound myopic astigmatism in both the eyes.

Refractive Types of Regular Astigmatism

Refractive Types of Regular Astigmatism

Compound Myopic Astigmatism: When both principal meridians are focused in front of the retina (with accommodation relaxed). The principal meridians are the meridians of greatest and least refracting powers. The amount of astigmatism is equal to the difference in refracting power of the two principal meridians.

All her tests including her corneal topography, dry eyes analysis etc were normal. Her corneal thickness was measured by Optical coherence tomography (OCT) and  Scheimpflug corneal topography system. It was found to be borderline thin. Given the reduced thickness of her cornea she was advised against Conventional or bladeless femto Lasik.

Hence, Dr. Jain recommended her to undergo photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) also referred to as Epi-LASIK or advanced surface ablation by some.

She heaved a sigh of relief learning that there were other types of LASIK surgery that she could still opt for.

Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) is used to address astigmatism, farsightedness along with nearsightedness. Moreover, PRK is best for those individuals who have borderline topographies, thin cornea, dry eyes, basement membrane disorders, and for people who are involved in contact sports or those in combative professions like army, navy etc.

Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK)

Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) in Navi Mumbai

In PRK, the top layer of cornea is removed either mecnically or with laser or with the help of diluted alcohol. And then excimer laser is applied to the cornea to re-shape it. This corrects patient’s eye power. Due to removal of the corneal top layer called epithelium, patient experiences some discomfort for first 2-3 days compared to other types of LASIK such as FEMTO LASIK or ReLEX SMILE LASIK.

Sheetal underwent PRK and thanked Dr. Jain and the entire team of AEHI wholeheartedly. Gradually, after few regular follow ups, she heaved a huge sigh of relief to have normal vision.

Patients like Sheetal are very common who are bombarded with all the myths around LASIK. She was surrounded by the falsehood that after 40 years of age, LASIK surgery cannot be opted as it is only for youngsters. However, one must not fall for such rumours because it is only the pre-LASIK evaluation tests that determines if a patient is suitable to undergo LASIK or not. Hence, it is important to consult an eye doctor who specializes in LASIK and undergo a detailed eye check-up.
