Intralase Laser Eye Correction
LASIK is a well-known surgery used to correct vision in people who are near-sighted, farsighted, or astigmatism. All laser vision correction surgeries work by reshaping the cornea. The cornea is the clear front part of the eye, so that light travelling through it is properly focused onto the retina existed in the back of the eye. LASIK is one of a similar of various surgical techniques used to reshape the cornea.
LASIK is accomplished while the patient reclines under a surgical device named an excimer laser in an outpatient surgical suite.
First, the eye is numbed with a few drops topical Anaesthetic. An eyelid holder is placed between the eyelids to keep them open and prevent the patient from blinking. A suction ring placed on the eye lifts and flattens the cornea. It helps keep the eye from moving. The patient may feel pressure from the eyelid holder and suction ring, similar to a finger pressed firmly on the eyelid.
Vision appears dim or goes black from the time the suction ring is put on the eye until it is removed. Once the cornea is flattened, a hinged flap of corneal tissue is created utilising an automated microsurgical device, either a laser or blade. This corneal flap is lifted and folded back. Then the excimer laser preprogramed with the patient’s unique eye measurements is cantered above the eye.
The surgeon checks that the laser is positioned correctly. The patient looks at a special pinpoint light, named a fixation or target light, while the excimer laser sculpts the corneal tissue. Afterwards, the surgeon places the flap back into position and smooths the edges. The corneal flap sticks to the underlying corneal tissue within two to five minutes, and stitches are not needed.
The patient should plan to have someone drive him or her home after the procedure. Then he or she takes a nap or just relax. To help protect the cornea as it heals.
Benefits of intralaser treatment flaps
The major benefit is that all appropriate prescriptions can at the moment be treated with bladeless technology. For this reason, eliminating the induced distortion and possibility of serious complications associated with the creation of the flap by manual blade. More patients accomplish 20:20 vision or better; fewer patients lose sharpness of vision. Both long term and short term sofety are improved upon. It increased confidence for both the doctor and patient lessens stress and anxiety. As e result, both mechanical breakdown and human error are reduced. Lasik consists of many benefits. They are as follows:
What should I expect after LASIK eye surgery?
Your eyes will temporarily be dry even though they do not feel that way. Your doctor will give you prescription eye drops to prevent infection and inflammation and eye drops to keep your eyes moist. These drops may cause a momentary slight burn or blurring of your vision when you utilise them. Do not use any eye drops not approved by our doctors.
Healing after LASIK eye surgery usually happens very rapidly. Vision may be blurry and hazy for the first day, yet most patients observe embittered vision among a few days of surgery.
Before LASIK surgery
Your personal aims, medical and vision history play a fundamental role in determining that refractive surgical option is right for you. During a thorough eye exam, our doctors will :
Intralaser LASIK surgery process
Step 1 - Creating the flap
In just 18 seconds, this new state of the art laser creates the LASIK flap without the need for the blade. The flap is extremely precise in both thickness and formation.
Step 2 - Folding the flap back
Once the corneal flap is made, the surgeon will gently fold the flap back, so that the laser beam can gently reshape the cornea.
Step 3 - Applying the laser
Reshaping the cornea beneath with a laser first and then replacing the flap. This virtually eliminates the wound. It speeds up the healing process. It means that recovery is fast and usually completely pain-free.
Step 4 - Flap return
Following exposure to the laser beam and treatment of the refractive error, the surgeon will fold the flap back into its normal position on the cornea. Once in place, the surgeon will irrigate the eye and smooth out any bubbles or wrinkles under the flap.

The recovery time from having LASIK surgery varies, yet most people will significant improvements in their vision within the first two days. Acquiring good vision may take between two and seven days. Nevertheless, full recovery from LASIK surgery may take at least six months.
- Short-term recovery from LASIK
You will not be allowed to drive. You will want to arrange transportation for the day of your LASIK surgery. Our doctor will send you home with strict instructions to rest for the first few hours following surgery.
You will probably feel some eye ache during the first few days following LASIK, along with irritation and weeping. You may also feel like you have a piece of sand in your eye. You might be instructed to put on a patch or shield over your eye for the first few days, especially during sleep, as you have to avoid rubbing your eye and eyelid. Your eyes may also be sensitive to light, and your vision may be blurry for the first few days.
Depending on the genre of LASIK achieved, you may experience a sub conjunctival Haemorrhage. This usually happens since of the suction device placed on your eye during the first couple of weeks but will fade daily.
You will most likely have a check-up rendez-vous within 24-48 hours after your surgery. Your doctor will examine your eyes. He will test your vision. You may be given medicated eye drops to help preventing infection and inflammation. Even if your vision still blurry, you should not wear contact lenses during your short-term recovery term
