LASIK & Laser Surgery
LASIK (Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis), commonly referred to as laser eye surgery or laser vision correction, is a type of refractive surgery for the correction of myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. The LASIK surgery is performed by an Ophthalmologist who uses a laser or microkeratome to reshape the eye's cornea in order to improve visual acuity.
In general, Lasik patients are found to be between 21 to 40 years of age with stable refractive error. But this surgery can be successfully applied to older patients as well who are suffering from presbyopia and need bifocals.
When a patient is prescribed a Lasik Surgery he has to go through a series of eye investigations like Refraction, Keratometry, Corneal Topography, Topography on Schiemflug by SIRIUS, Ocular Response Analyser, As- OCT Pachymeter before consulting the surgeon to discuss about the possible refractive error corrections. This is the most prevailing norm as far Lasik Surgery in Delhi is concerned.
