I have Diabetes, can I have LASIK surgery?

Presently, in India, the picture of diabetes is getting worse with every passing year. Approximately 10 lakh people die of diabetes every year in India. This is more than 7% of the adult population of the country. Diabetic patients are also affected more when it comes to eye problems. This is why such patients need a proper consult, evaluation and counselling when they want to undergo vision correction procedures like Laser In Situ Keratomileusis (LASIK).

Diabetes

Diabetes and LASIK Awareness 2018

Diabetic patients can develop complications during or after LASIK surgery leading to undesirable visual outcomes. Lasik is not a good option for a sub-set of diabetic patients. Individuals with uncontrolled diabetes with high HB1Ac levels or any related complications are not considered suitable for any form of laser vision correction procedure like Lasik.

Eye problems due to diabetes:

1] Retina Based

Diabetic Retinopathy (DR) is the most common complication of diabetes on our eyes. Our retina is a highly vascular system, which is constantly nourished by blood vessels. Diabetes affects the small vessels of the retina in the form of leaking vessels and also some blocked vessels. This in turn causes retinal swelling and retinal ischemia. Retinal ischemia can lead to formation of new blood vessels. Such patients if not treated are at risk of further complications and a severe loss of vision.

The symptoms of this condition include fluctuations in vision, spots or strings floating in your field of vision, difficulty in perceiving colours etc.

Any patient who has even early sings of diabetic retinopathy is not considered a suitable candidate for Lasik.

2] Cornea Based

Keratopathy is common complication of diabetes. It is a corneal disease wherein it shows defects in the epithelial layers such as Chronic epithelitis, Delayed healing, Epithelial erosions, superficial punctate keratopathy etc.

Diabetic patients are prone to infection and poor wound healing due to impaired immune system. Hence, performing LASIK in these patients requires a lot of consideration like controlling glycemic levels etc.

Despite these limitations, a large number of diabetic patients undergo LASIK eye surgery regularly. Therefore, to identify if a diabetic patient is suitable for LASIK surgery, one has to undergo thorough pre-LASIK evaluation and other tests as suggested by your Lasik surgeon.

Kharghar youth gains normal vision despite inflammation in eye at AEHI

Fatima Khan was an insurance agent in a reputed company in Mumbai who lived in Kharghar. Most of her meetings with client required her to travel almost everyday. And, she hardly used to wear her sunglasses or use umbrella etc. One day while meeting a client, her glasses accidentally dropped on the floor and she couldn’t find it immediately. Her client then handed it over to her. Over the subsequent few weeks, she felt irritated as she experienced eye pain, dryness and intermittent blurriness in her eyes. She then confided in her best friend about her daily hassles of eyeglasses.

frustration.png

Her friend then recommended her to think about Lasik and meet Dr. Vandana Jain, a renowned LASIK, Cornea and Cataract Surgeon at Advanced Eye Hospital & Institute (AEHI), near Vashi who operated her with LASIK surgery a year ago. Fatima immediately booked an appointment at AEHI.

As she expressed her desire for LASIK, a pre-LASIK evaluation was carried out for her. This evaluation included a detailed examination comprising of various tests to evaluate the health of the cornea, lens, iris (anterior segment structures), retina, choroid, and optic nerve (posterior segment structures of the eye).

Dr. Jain evaluated her pre-LASIK work up report, it showed that her retina, lens, optic nerve were all in healthy condition.  She had a mild blephritis along with corneal epitheliopathy.

Dr. Jain then prescribed her lid scrubs with a few eye drops and ointment. She was also advised  to use all sun protection utilities like sunglasses, hats, headgear with large visors etc. whenever required. Further, she was asked to follow up after two weeks.

Corneal punctate epitheliopathy (CPE) is a condition wherein the outermost layer (epithelium) of the cornea shows dot-like staining, swelling of epithelium due to surface inflammation. Patients most commonly experience symptoms like sharp pain, foreign body sensation, blurry vision, light sensitivity etc. The main causative factors for the same can be dry eyes, Meibomian gland disease, blephritis etc.

After two weeks, when Fatima came for follow-up, the health of her eyes was much better. It showed enough moisture with no light sensitivity. Dr. Vandana then advised her to continue the same eye drops and visit after a month. Gradually, in the next few months, she was relieved of the symptoms like intermittent blurry vision, eye pain etc.

Any type of Lasik surgery like conventional Lasik, PRK, SMILE LASIK or FEMTO LASIK reduces eye power by re-shaping the curvature of the corneal surface. The choice of the type of Lasik is dependent on patient related parameters. For example, Fatima’s case necessitated PRK as it is the safest option for her owing to her thin cornea.

PRK

Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) in Navi Mumbai

Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), also called as surface lasik where the top layer of cornea called as corneal epithelium is removed either mechanically or with laser and then excimer laser is applied to the cornea to re-shape it. This corrects patient’s eye power. Due to surface ablation, recovery period was slightly longer. It usually takes 3-4 days for such patients to go back to work. To reduce the discomfort these patients are prescribed painkillers for the first 2-3 days.

Fatima underwent PRK and diligently followed all the postoperative instructions including refraining from exposing her eyes to direct sunlight for a few weeks.

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

Belapur woman gets best LASIK treatment despite thin cornea at AEHI

23-year-old Jyoti Nimbalkar was a management employee in a start-up company who lived in CBD Belapur. After reading and listening to various testimonials and stories about LASIK eye surgery from couple of her friends, and office colleagues, she was convinced to visit Advanced Eye Hospital & Institute (AEHI) in Sanpada, Navi Mumbai. Once she reached AEHI, pre-Lasik evaluation was conducted.

Start up company

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

Dr. Jain evaluated her pre-LASIK work up report, it showed that her retina, lens, optic nerve were all in healthy condition.  Her corneal topography was also normal however her corneal thickness was on the lower side.

The Schirmer test was also performed, the score of which was 9 mm after 5 min for both eyes. Schirmer’s test is a dry eye test where the moisture content in the eyes or production of tears is determined using special paper strips. Paper strip is inserted under the lower eyelid into the eyes. When the test result is normal- the filter paper shows more than 10 mm of moisture in 5 minutes. For Jyoti, this reading was less and was indicative of  mild dry eyes.  She was advised to discontinue contact lens use and was advised to use lubricating eye drops. She was asked to review after 2 weeks.

Red eyes

At 2 weeks follow-up her eye dryness was better. Given her borderline thin cornea, Dr. Jain recommended her photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) also called as advanced surface ablation (ASA). Any type of Lasik surgery like conventional Lasik, PRK, SMILE LASIK or FEMTO LASIK reduces eye power by re-shaping the curvature of the corneal surface. The choice of the type of Lasik sometimes is dependent of patient related parameters. For example, in case of Jyoti given her thin cornea PRK was the safest option for her.

Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), also called as surface lasik where the top layer of cornea called as corneal epithelium is removed either mechanically or with laser and then excimer laser is applied to the cornea to re-shape it. This corrects patient’s eye power. Due to surface ablation, the post procedure recovery period was slightly longer.  It usually takes 3-4 days for such patients to go back to work. To reduce the discomfort these patients are prescribed painkillers for the first 2-3 days.

Jyoti underwent PRK and diligently followed all the postoperative instructions including refraining from smoking.

Lasik Cures Reading and Distance Glasses

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

Jyoti was shocked to learn that smoking and vision are co-related to each other and that it could have adverse effect on her eyes in the long run.

All those individuals who are keen on undergoing LASIK should get a detailed pre-LASIK check-up done. Mild to moderate dry eyes require best treatment for dry eye before lasik surgery procedure. Hence, it is a routine at Centre for Lasik Surgery at Advanced Eye Hospital and Institute, Navi Mumbai.

Kamothe man corrected his glass power without LASIK from AEHI

Vishal Agarwal* was a first-year law student who resided in Nerul. This young lad was also passionate about painting whose eyeglasses often used to be smeared with paint. This created a lot of hassle for him and he needed to frequently clean his glasses. One day, he finally decided to get rid of eyeglasses by undergoing LASIK surgery.

Based on one of his uncle’s recommendation, he booked an appointment with Advanced Eye Hospital and Institute (AEHI) in Sanpada, Navi Mumbai.

On the day of his visit, Vishal underwent pre-LASIK check-up. These tests revealed he had thin cornea along with compound myopic astigmatism with refractive error of -5.00/-2 x 180 in both the eyes.

Refractive Types of Regular Astigmatism

Refractive Types of Regular Astigmatism

Compound Myopic Astigmatism: In this type of astigmatism, light enters the eye from two focal points, both of which forms before the retina and at two different sites. 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.

LASIK eye treatment involves ablation of the cornea layers after raising a flap with microkeratome. Since, Vishal’s cornea was thin, LASIK was not the suitable vision correcting procedure for him. He was also not found to be suitable for surface ablation as his cornea was too thin and no form of ablative procedure was safe for him.

When he consulted Dr. Vandana Jain at AEHI, she advised him Toric Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL) implantation, which can correct refractive error without decreasing the corneal thickness or removing the natural lens. Toric ICL can also correct astigmatism. He chose to go for Toric IPCL which is the Indian phakic lens very similar to Toric ICL.

Gonioscopy test showed that the angle between iris and cornea was wide. Gonioscopy is performed prior to IPCL to rule out any form of angle closure.

Hence, he was referred to Dr. Rajesh Mishra, a Glaucoma specialist at AEHI who performed a YAG laser peripheral Iridotomy (PI).

Flow of Eye Fluid

Flow of Eye Fluid

YAG PI treatment involves creating a tiny hole on the iris, which aids in maintaining the smooth flow of aqueous humor from the anterior chamber to outside your eyes. It is done prior to IPCL so as to prevent pupillary block and future increase of intra-ocular eye pressure.

Vishal was then referred back to Dr. Jain who then surgically implanted IPCL in his right eye followed by left. After a month, Vishal showed stability in all the eye related parameters and was fully corrected of his refractive error.

LASIK or other excimer procedures are not the best treatment for getting rid of the spectacles when you have a thin cornea. Luckily, ICL/IPCL aka Phakic IOLs (Phakic intra ocular lenses) are specially designed lenses made up of biocompatible material – collagen. These lenses 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.

IPCL implantation has proven to preserve the best-corrected vision and low pre and post-operative complications. IPCL is a thin, soft and almost invisible once placed in your eyes. Additionally, it is not a good idea to assume that LASIK is ‘one size fits all’ procedure to remove glass power (refractive power). Having said this, IPCL implantation surgery also comes with its own criteria that can we can identify after a detailed eye check-up.

Navi Mumbai woman received best LASIK surgery after treating retinal hole at AEHI

29-year-old Nisha Garg* was hardworking civil lawyer who was glad about getting a new case every now and then, at her workplace. After finishing her daily tasks, she often used to take a stroll on quiet streets of Palm Beach road, Navi Mumbai.

evening-walk.jpg

However, she was forced to stop her evening walks as she started experiencing dryness in her eyes with even the  slightest breeze. She realized it is because of her disposal contact lenses which she has been wearing for many years. Finally, she decided to get freedom from her contact lenses.

Next day, Nisha booked an appointment with Advanced Eye Hospital & Institute (AEHI), near Vashi, Navi Mumbai based on the excellent reviews on Just dial after searching for best eye doctor on the internet.

As she was referred to Dr. Vandana Jain, a LASIK, Cornea and Cataract surgeon Nisha expressed that she wanted to undergo LASIK surgery. During detailed eye check-up at AEHI, it was found that she had a retinal hole in her left eye. Eye power was -4.00D in both her eyes. While, all the other tests like corneal topography, IOL master, contrast sensitivity, muscle balance testing were normal.

After these results were out, Dr. Yogesh Patil, who is Retina specialist, advised her for Barrage laser treatment to seal the retinal hole.

Often, when an individual has retinal hole, it is sealed using a laser like a welding technique. Barrage laser treatment is an OPD procedure, meaning treatment is a few minutes procedure.

On the subsequent follow up after 10 days, Dr. Yogesh Patil examined her retina, which showed that all her lesions were well barraged. After this Nisha was given a go-ahead to undergo any type of LASIK surgery.

Nisha was then referred back to Dr. Vandana Jain. She then explained to her the traditional LASIK, wavefront guided LASIK and SMILE LASIK. Out of these, Nisha chose SMILE Lasik (Relex Smile), which is quick and flapless laser eye treatment.  She underwent SMILE lasik and got the much-needed freedom from her contact lenses and the dryness associated with it.

ReLEx SMILE LASIK

ReLEx SMILE LASIK

SMILE Lasik (Relex Smile) is the most advanced LASIK surgery, 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.

Retinal hole refers to the eye condition of tiny breaks in the retina that is the innermost layer of the eye. This directly does not affect your vision but, gradually fluid can start flowing behind the retina through the hole eventually causing retina to detach. If retina detaches from its normal position, vision can get severely affected depending in the extent and location of detachment. Most often treating retinal detachment is an eye emergency.

Patients with retinal holes may not experience any symptoms or they may experience symptoms like flashes, floaters or dark spots in front of their eyes.

Therefore, it is important to undergo a thorough eye-screening test from best eye hospital to diagnose hidden eye condition and avail treatment in time.

Implantable Contact Lens surgery restores normal vision as well as confidence in youth at AEHI

Dejection -Image source- Pinterest

Dejection Quote -Image source- Pinterest

31-years-old Nitin Deshmukh* was tired of wearing disposable contact lenses since a decade. Right from his graduation day until 2018, there hasn’t been a single day when he didn’t think about undergoing LASIK. The fear of undergoing a surgery especially on eyes, and lots of questions like LASIK is safe or what, will I recover normal vision after LASIK were the constant thoughts that engulfed him since years. But, finally he mustered courage to consult an eye doctor. All the eye specialist he visited informed him that he is not suitable to undergo LASIK due to high myopia (nearsightedness). Lasik will be able to only partially correct his eye power and he will still have to wear glasses.  This was obviously not solving his problem completely.

Fear of undergoing LASIK surgery

Fear of undergoing LASIK surgery

Although, he was dejected, he did not lose hope. He started reading about LASIK and soon he came across Dr. Vandana Jain’s blog on LASIK, which made him hopeful and confident. He booked an appointment with her at Advanced Eye Hospital Institute (AEHI) located at Sanpada, Navi Mumbai.

Nitin underwent pre-LASIK evaluation on the appointment day and consulted Dr. Vandana Jain. Nitin impatiently asked Dr. Jain as so why he cannot have full correction with LASIK. Dr. Jain explained  to him that with Lasik there are limitations. Lasik is not safe for correction of powers more than 10 to -12 D. For someone like him who has a power of -18D Lasik can only partially correct the eye power and he will have a residual power of -8D for which he will still have to use glasses or contact lenses. However, there are other kinds of procedure which can help him.  He can plan to undergo Implantable Contact lens (ICL) which will remove the full power and he fulfils the suitability criteria for that.

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.

Vashi youth regained confidence and normal vision after ICL surgery at AEHI

25-year-old Girish Kamat was working as a software developer in a MNC located at Airoli. After work, he used to learn dancing near his home at Vashi. But, the only problem that he faced was his eyeglasses which required constant wiping and was an obstacle. He wondered if he would get rid of it someday.

dance.jpg

After a week, he heard about LASIK eye surgery through his friends that can correct his refractive error. So, he started reading about LASIK on Google. Soon, he stumbled upon an article titled ‘Is LASIK safe?’ As he finished reading, he heaved a sigh of relief that the laser treatment for vision correction is safe, efficient and affordable.  He also learnt about the advancements in LASIK like Customized Lasik, Epi Lasik, Femto Lasik, ReLEx Smile Lasik, LasikXtra, which took him by surprise. This made him immediately book an appointment with Dr. Vandana Jain at Centre for Lasik Surgery at Advanced Eye Hospital and Institute near Vashi, Navi Mumbai.

EYE CHECK UP AT NAVI MUMBAI

EYE CHECK UP AT NAVI MUMBAI

Girish underwent pre-LASIK evaluation on the appointment day and consulted Dr. Vandana Jain. Refractive error showed that he had -2.50 power in his right eye while -2.25 in his left eye. While his eye pressure,  Orthoptic Work-up to check eye muscle balance; IOL Master to evaluate difference in length between the two eyes, if any, and Fundoscopy for retina evaluation were all normal.

However, as a part of pre-LASIK evaluation, Corneal topography test was also conducted to study the Cornea, which revealed that Girish’s cornea was mildly asymmetric. Further, Pachymetry showed that the thickness of his cornea was not enough. Abnormal corneal topography along with reduced corneal thickness made him unsuitable for laser vision correction procedures like lasik or femtolasik or smile lasik.

On one hand Girish was disappointed that he could not undergo Lasik but on other hand he was relieved that he got the right opinion. Dr. Jain then then explained him about Implantable Contact Lenses (ICL). These lenses are also called as Phakic IOLs (or Phakic intra ocular 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.

Girish was convinced and so subsequently underwent ICL implantation surgery. His recovery was quick and after a week, he joined back work and after a month, he returned to his dance class with full swing and renewed confidence.

ICL are very thin and invisible once the ICL is implanted in the eye. ICL surgery does not alter the curvature of cornea at all. By virtue of its negligible effect on the corneal curvature the quality of vision in most cases is even superior to Lasik. All those who were not suitable for Lasik, Epi Lasik/PRK and Femto Lasik have ICL as a wonderful option to consider.

Often people like Girish just assume that Lasik is for everyone. A pre-Lasik evaluation is a must to determine suitability. In those cases where Lasik cannot be done alternative procedure like ICL can still be a wonderful way to get rid of glasses. However, just Like Lasik, ICL has its own suitability criteria so a detailed eye check-up is mandatory.
