Prior to current developments in the eye care technology, vision-correcting surgery was considered risky. However, with further advances and newer technology ,LASIK surgery is safe and reliable procedure given a detailed pre lasik evaluation determines the suitability for Lasik.

LASIK surgery at Centre for Lasik Surgery at Advanced Eye Hospital at Sanpada in Navi Mumbai, has all the answers and customized treatment for all your eye problems across the demographics.

Most patients aren’t aware that there are different types of LASIK from which they can benefit from.

Standard LASIK, as self explanatorily, indicates traditional LASIK corrects refractive errors such as myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. Standard or Traditional LASIK is suitable for anyone who wants to have vision correction surgery for refractive errors aforementioned and provided the results for pre-LASIK evaluation tests are all normal. To understand more about precautions and instructions, for before, during and after the LASIK surgery, one can avail all the information here.

Custom LASIK is also known as Wavefront guided LASIK. Wavefront guided LASIK uses a wavescan aberrometer that provides information about the aberrations in the optical system of human eye. With Wave-front guided lasik any significant aberrations can be reduced. This in turn reduces the propensity for the halos around the lights, double vision, night glare, contrast, and starbursts.

In short, custom wavefront guided LASIK can provide you:

  • Patients high likely to have sharp vision of 6/6/ or better
  • Lower risk of losing vision quality or contrast sensitivity
  • Lesser possibility of developing night-vision disturbances and glare
ReLEx SMILE LASIK

ReLEx SMILE LASIK

SMILE Lasik (Relex Smile) is the most advanced LASIK lasers which is quick and precise procedure that does not create flap like the LASIK or Femtolasik. Additionally, SMILE Lasik does not induce any spherical aberrations as the zone of disc cutting is very well defined and no laser energy is lost in the peripheral part of the treatment. This makes Relex SMILE Lasik one of the safest, quickest and most comfortable (for patient) Lasik lasers.

However, there are other laser corrective surgeries like Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), which is suitable for patients with thin cornea. PRK corrects mild to moderate myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism, with high level of safety and efficacy. An eye surgeon often prefers this type of surgery for patients with high risk of traumatic postoperative flap dislocation, for military pilots or professional athletes.

While a patient has all the access to research various options for his eye operation, we urge them towards the detailed pre lasik evaluation to find and evaluate the health of their eyes. This will help in personalizing which type of surgery or treatment will be suitable for the patient.

Alternatives to LASIK enhancement surgery

Gone are the days when people had to wear eyeglasses after their 4th decade in life. Numerous studies have shown that 70% to 90% of school and college students have a refractive error in their eyes called Myopia. And, eyeglasses and contact lenses become an internal part of people’s life to live with the refractive error. But then, LASIK became the gold standard treatment for correcting refractive error.

Alternatives to LASIK enhancement surgery

Alternatives to LASIK enhancement surgery

However, in rare situations if there is any residual refractive error after the first Lasik surgery, people may undergo LASIK enhancement surgery. This is done to correct the residual power in patients who have already undergone Lasik surgery.

We are all aware that anyone who wants to get Lasik done have to get their eyes evaluated, a series of tests called as pre-LASIK evaluation id one to ascertain the suitability for LASIK surgery. Similarly, there are also numbers of factors that need to be considered before planning LASIK enhancement surgery. This includes the thickness of the cornea, degree of the residual error, patient’s age etc.

On the other hand, if the refractive error in patients after LASIK surgery is too low or any other parameter is disqualifying the patient from undergoing LASIK enhancement, then consulting your nearest eye doctor for more options is a good idea.

On one hand we have more traditional options like spectacles and contact lenses on the other hand we have other procedures like PRK, Phakic IOL’s and Refractive lens exchange. The decision and choice of the procedure is dependent on many parameters and ascertained on a case by case basis.

If the residual power is small, then while doing detailing work, wearing spectacles may help.  When choosing an eyeglass, the types of lens also play a vital role. If one needs to wear both distance and near correction, then Multifocal lens a.k.a, progressive addition lens or varifocal lens may provide more comfort. There are certain types of multifocal lenses, which are available with anti-reflective coating that helps in reducing reflections while driving at night. After LASIK, wearing varifocal lenses itself eliminates the necessity to have a separate pair of reading glasses.  There are also some patients who feel sensitivity towards light after LASIK treatment, for whom photochromatic lenses may be suitable. Photochromic lenses are an amazing type of optical lenses that darken in bright sunlight (this is often in presence of ultraviolet rays) and go back to their clear condition in low light.

Alternative to LASIK Enhancement Surgery

Based on the factors that affect visual results and patients satisfaction after LASIK surgery, your eye surgeon may prefer PRK over LASIK enhancement surgery. In PRK, your eye doctor does not require re-lifting or creating corneal flap. This typically assures of low risk of developing cells called epithelial ingrowth under the corneal flap. Besides if the residual bed is too thin for lifting the flap and then a surface ablation procedure like PRK is better to protect the eye and safeguard against future risk of post Lasik ectasia.

Moreover, your eye specialist may also consider phakic IOL for vision correction in patients who are not suitable for laser vision correction. Phakic intraocular lenses (PIOLs) are clear implantable lenses that are surgically placed in either anterior chamber (AC) or posterior chamber (PC) without removing the natural lens. This enables the light to focus on the retina for uncorrected visual acuity.

In addition, there is another option called refractive lens exchange (RLE).

Patients with high minus numbered glasses (nearsightedness i.e. myopia), astigmatism, hyperopia are not recommended LASIK surgery. Instead, they are advised for RLE, in which the crystalline lens is removed for refractive purposes. Usually older patients who already have an onset of early cataract may be advised to undergo RLE instead of Lasik enhancement.

If you feel that you are dissatisfied owing to the visual outcomes after LASIK surgery or any other type refractive eye surgery, consult a nearby eye specialist and explore your options.

Can You Have Lasik Eye Surgery More Than Once?

Lasik eye surgery is a laser-based eye procedure which reduces dependence on spectacles in patients with minus numbered eyeglasses (nearsightedness), plus numbered eyeglasses (farsightedness), and astigmatism. Various studies on LASIK eye surgery have confirmed that LASIK procedure gives patients more than 95% satisfaction.  A small proportion of patients who experience dissatisfaction maybe related to the residual power after the Lasik surgery. In such circumstance, vision can be further sharpened with an additional follow up LASIK procedure, which is called as LASIK enhancement surgery.

Complications after LASIK

What is LASIK enhancement Surgery?

LASIK enhancement surgery is a procedure done for further enhancing patient’s vision due to unsatisfactory visual outcome from first LASIK surgery. This is done to correct the residual power in patients who have already undergone Lasik surgery.

 

How is LASIK enhancement Surgery done?

LASIK enhancement surgery is very similar to LASIK procedure. However, it differs in the first step, in that, LASIK surgeon uses specialized tools to lift the already created corneal flap from original LASIK. Cornea is reshaped using an excimer laser accordingly.  This  procedure is typically painless, and the duration of procedure is very short. The post-operation instructions are also similar to the previous Lasik procedure.

Factors That Affect results and patients satisfaction after Lasik Surgery:

There are lots of parameters that can influence the results and Patient’s satisfaction after LASIK surgery

  • Patient’s age
  • Patient’s corneal parameters
  • Magnitude of nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism
  • If the patient is at risk of dry eyes post LASIK surgery
  • Compliance to eye care guidelines post LASIK surgery

 

The expectations of a patients before LASIK surgery is also instrumental in how happy they feel after undergoing the surgery. Therefore, is it very important for the patients and the eye doctors to talk about it before the Lasik procedure and set the expectations right.

When is the right time for LASIK enhancement?

A skilled LASIK surgeon must be consulted and followed up for a couple of months. The stability of your vision, health of the cornea, etc. will help to determine if LASIK enhancement is required. If a patient’s residual eye power persists even after three months of LASIK surgery, LASIK enhancement may be required.

It is important to remember that enhancement procedure after LASIK surgery is rarely needed. Nevertheless, consultation with an experienced LASIK surgeon can guide you regarding the best options for your eye.

Khandeshwar woman gets best corneal replacement surgery from AEHI

Sunitha Iyer started driving from Khandeshwar to meet her parents at Pune. She had longed for this union for the last two years.

Car accident

However, as she reached half way through Palm Beach road, a vehicle dashed onto her car leaving her with injured left eye. By-passers immediately took her to Advanced Eye Hospital and Institute (AEHI), which is also located at Palm Beach road, Navi Mumbai.

The staff of AEHI attended her straightaway. Initial eye check-up revealed that visual acuity for left eye was just hand movements close to face while her right eye vision was normal. Further, several irregular superficial lacerations (cuts) were noted in the left upper eyelid. Her ocular history revealed that she had LASIK surgery done one year ago. Slit lamp examination revealed that Lasik flap had got displaced superiorly in her left eye and there was a small anterior chamber hyphema (bleeding inside the front part of the eye)

Dr. Vandana Jain, Cornea, Cataract & LASIK surgeon, was then consulted for this corneal flap displacement.  Dr. Jain noted that forceful injury to her left eye caused lasik flap displacement. The corneal flap was wrinkled and folded in the superior part under the left eyelid. Luckily, the adhesion between the corneal flap and the cornea was still intact at the hinge.

A surgery for replacing the corneal flap was carried out. Using sterile scraper the debris was removed under the constant flow of balanced salt solution.  The corneal flap at the superior position was unfolded and stretched back to its surface to circumvent folding. In the end, effective adhesion of cornea to its layer was ensured by protecting the cornea with bandage soft contact lens.

Two days after the eye procedure, Sunitha’s left eye showed that the wrinkled corneal flap was smoothly attached on the stromal layer. After a month, the best-corrected visual acuity was 6/6 with a minor eye power.

LASIK still remains as the gold standard laser treatment to correct myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism. The procedure of LASIK involves creating a corneal flap and lifting it. Then an excimer laser ablates the stromal bed and ends with repositioning the corneal flap.

Even though after Lasik, flap heals and attaches strongly to the stromal bed but rarely a strong impact or major injury can lead to flap related complications like displacement, dislocation, striae etc. The sooner such complications are managed better are the results we get.

ANATOMY OF CORNEA

ANATOMY OF CORNEA

It is important for people who are involved in contact sports like boxing or those professions where combative injuries can happen like armed forces to not undergo conventional lasik. More advanced procedures like SMILE lasik where flap is not created is a safer option for glass removal for such people.

It is important to understand that once accidents occur, detailed eye examinations should be undertaken by the patients under experienced eye specialist at the earliest.

I have glaucoma, can I undergo LASIK?

23-year-old Sujit Talwar is a young optometrist who lives in CBD Belapur. He visited Advanced Eye Hospital & Institute (AEHI) in Sanpada, Navi Mumbai to seek Dr. Vandana Jain’s opinion for LASIK. After pre-Lasik evaluation was conducted for him, he was accompanied to Dr. Jain’s cabin by AEHI’s staff, which was a welcome surprise for him.

Can I go for LASIK surgery?

Can I go for LASIK surgery?

During pre-LASIK evaluation, a detailed examination comprised of various tests was carried out to evaluate the health of the cornea, lens, iris (anterior segment structures), retina, choroid, and optic nerve (posterior segment structures of the eye).

As Dr. Jain evaluated his pre-LASIK work up report. Sujit immediately asked if he was suitable for photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) or LASIK. His optic nerve looked suspicious and he was referred to Dr. Mishra to rule out Glaucoma. Dr Mishra, the glaucoma specialist at AEHI conducted a detailed assessment for him. He advised OCT nerve head and field of vision test as well. The tests showed some early changes suggestive of Normal tension Glaucoma. Sujit’s father was a known glaucoma patient and so Sujit was well aware about the disease. Dr. Mishra advised him an eye drop to be used regularly and follow-up with him for re-evaluation. He further mentioned that he should not consider any laser vision correction surgery at this stage. After ascertaining stability and good control, he can consider the procedure for glass removal after 1-2 years.

Sujit was referred back to Dr. Jain. She reassessed all the tests. Unfortunately, refractive surgery (LASIK, PRK etc.,) for glaucoma patients is not a linear answer as each case differs from other. If all the parameters and the intraocular pressure (IOP) (i.e. eye pressure) are under control, laser vision correction can still be an alternative treatment for vision correction in glaucoma patients.

lasik

Lasik

Although, PRK and LASIK are both vision correcting laser surgery, a LASIK surgeon might pick one of them. However, during Laser vision correction surgery, PRK causes relatively less increase in eye pressure, and hence at times PRK is preferred over LASIK for glaucoma patients. On the other hand, a LASIK surgeon will also consider other pre-existing risk factors in glaucoma patients such as diabetes, hereditary problem of glaucoma, high eye pressure, health of the optic nerve etc.

Dr. Jain further explained him that if glaucoma is under good control, then PRK or LASEK are good options that do not require a microkeratome (an instrument for creating a flap on cornea) and do not elevate the patient’s IOP during the procedure.

Sujit followed up with Dr. Mishra for 2 years and he was declared to have well controlled glaucoma. Since he had an immense desire to get rid of his glasses, Dr. Mishra gave him a go ahead for PRK. Sujit underwent PRK and diligently followed all the postoperative instructions. He received much desired freedom from glasses and also continued his 6 monthly follow-ups with Dr. Mishra for his glaucoma evaluation.

Although, LASIK is presently the dominant technique in refractive surgery, photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) is also used to address astigmatism, nearsightedness, and farsightedness. Moreover, PRK is best for those individuals who have thin cornea, dry eyes, basement membrane disorders, borderline topographies, people who are involved in contact sports or those in combative professions like army, navy etc.

If you are suffering from glaucoma and are worried about LASIK then it is recommended to visit eye doctors specialising in LASIK and glaucoma. This team approach can help tailor the right treatment for every glaucoma patient who wants to undergo Lasik for vision correction.

Airoli man’s dream comes true with LASIK eye Surgery at Navi Mumbai’s best eye hospital

Manoj Agarwal worked in a call centre as an out-bound executive in Airoli, Navi Mumbai. Since it was a part time job, he used to play cricket in his building campus during afternoon.

After several weeks, he started experiencing burning sensation, and occasional redness in his both eyes. Besides these, he also developed a fleshy yellowish lump that grew on the white part of the eye (called the sclera). Soon, the other players observed this eye condition and started teasing him.

He then discussed this eye problem with his parents after which they decided to visit an eye specialist immediately. Manoj then insisted to his parents that he also wanted to get rid of his glasses. And so, he wanted to know if he can go for LASIK surgery. His parents hesitated as they didn’t know if LASIK is safe. Next day, Manoj got to know about Centre for Lasik surgery at Advanced Eye Hospital and Institute (AEHI) in Sanpada, the best eye hospital in Navi Mumbai, from where LASIK surgery can be done.

On the day of appointment, Manoj and his father consulted Dr. Vandana Jain at Advanced Eye Hospital after undergoing a thorough initial eye check-up.

Manoj was diagnosed with Pinguecula. Pinguecula is more likely to develop in those individuals who are exposed to ultra-violet rays, wind and dust. Adults who work in dry and dusty environment like landscapers, workers, or athletes and do not wear protective goggles are more prone to it. Patients may experience  itching, burning sensation, redness and inflammation of the eye.

PINGUECULA

PINGUECULA

During consultation with Dr. Vandana Jain, Manoj enquired if pinguecula will interfere if he wants to undergo LASIK?

Manoj heaved a huge sigh of relief when he heard that pinguecula does not cause long-lasting damage to the eye and does not disqualify him from availing LASIK surgery to remove his spectacles.

A detailed Pre-LASIK evaluation is the vital part of the LASIK surgery. It helps to evaluate the suitability of the eye and also the long standing safety after Lasik.

Even before considering LASIK surgery, the thickness of Cornea, corneal maps, pupil diameter, eye dryness, muscle balance etc. are important factors that are checked and they all need to be in normal range.

LASIK is the acronym for “Laser Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis” and is commonly known as laser eye surgery or laser vision correction. The last decade has seen newer, better, safer and highly advanced laser vision correction procedures such as Bladeless Femto LASIK and Bladeless & Flapless ReLEx Smile LASIK.

Dr. Jain prescribed Manoj an eye ointment for the irritation and redness. After two weeks, he underwent pre-LASIK work up i.e. evaluation of the eye measurements, the results of which were normal. During pre-LASIK evaluation, a  detailed examination comprised of various tests to evaluate the health of the cornea, lens, iris (known as anterior segments), retina, choroid, and optic nerve (posterior segments of the eye). Luckily, for Manoj, all the tests were normal.

Even though surgery is something people heavily hesitate, this 25-year-old millennial was eagerly waiting to go for LASIK surgery. He underwent Femtolasik.

Post-surgery, Manoj expressed his gratitude to Dr. Jain as it was his dream to get rid of the glasses and to stop his neighbours from teasing him for his thick glasses. He further thanked her for the detailed explanation he received for LASIK and the do’s and don’ts after LASIK surgery.

LASIK surgery is best way to get freedom from glasses and contact lenses! It is always good to get all your concerns resolved prior to LASIK such as what happens before and during LASIK surgery, post-Lasik recovery, will I have to undergo LASIK surgery again in future  from your eye doctor.

Corneal ectasia, a rare complication after LASIK Eye Surgery

The cornea is a puzzling yet wonderful part of the human eye. The cornea has several functions such as protecting the eye, maintaining the intraocular pressure and providing smooth optical surface. And there are many external and internal factors that hamper these functions. Extrinsic factors cause eye diseases by physical trauma, microbial infections while intrinsic are genetic, metabolic, etc., which affects the corneal surface (structurally) as well as vision (functionally).

 Structure of Human Eye

Structure of Human Eye

Proper management of corneal disorders has the potential to prevent loss of vision along with the rehabilitation of vision. The cornea is stretched with Intrastromal corneal ring segments (ICRS) in case of treatment of keratoconus, re-shaped with excimer laser to correct the refractive power during refractive surgeries like Lasik. Because of this dynamic nature of the cornea, it displays changes and alterations in its forms.

ANATOMY OF CORNEA

ANATOMY OF CORNEA

 

Refractive surgeries like Lasik can give rise to a severe but rare complication called Corneal ectasia.  It progresses by steepening and thinning of the cornea. There are several reasons which can increase the predisposition to develop corneal ectasia.

Factors that influence the risk for ectasia are-

  • topographic abnormality before operation
  • low corneal thickness
  • young age
  • high nearsightedness
  • hereditary history of keratoconus
  • In case of delayed onset of ectasia, pregnancy or keratoconjunctivitis may also play a role.

 

This laser eye surgery is overall safe and effective procedure especially in those people where pre-Lasik evaluation is normal.  It is important to understand that every patient has to undergo a pre-lasik evaluation to ensure suitability for LASIK surgery and reduces the risk of post-lasik complications. If the pre-lasik evaluation is unsuitable then we can consider alternatives to Lasik surgery like Implantable contact lenses (ICL).
