Why a Lasik Surgery?

A Lasik surgery is a great surgical method that is non-invasive and takes very little time to get done. This surgical procedure can correct refractive errors in the eye and cure ailments like shortsightedness, astigmatism and farsightedness in a few steps. The Lasik is an advanced surgery using laser technology.

Here is why you should opt for a FEMTO Lasik surgery from PharmEasy:

  • Bladeless Lasik Surgery (FEMTO) that is highly precise
  • The minimal risk involved in the surgery
  • Extremely precise surgery performed by experienced surgeons
  • Fast recovery (within 2-3 days)
  • Surgery only takes 5-10 minutes to get completed

Diagnosis of Refractive Disorders and Lasik Treatment Options

An eye specialist (opthalmologist) diagnoses refractive disorders in your eyes with the help of certain diagnostic tests. These tests may include:

  • Visual acuity test- You are made to read a vision chart. The doctor then tries on different lenses to determine where your vision needs correction.

  • Retinoscopy- This test helps determine the refractive errors in the eye. It is mandatory before a Lasik procedure.

  • Corneal topography- This is a computer test that analyses any disorders in the eye.

  • Tonometry- This diagnostic test checks for eye pressure.

  • The ophthalmologist may also perform tests to check for dryness in the eyes.

You need not worry about booking separate diagnostic tests before your Lasik surgery. Book your Lasik surgery through PharmEasy SurgiCare. Our Care Expert will help you in getting your diagnostic tests done through PharmEasy.

Here are the types of refractive correction surgeries that the doctor might suggest to you:

  • Option 1 ยท Doctor Recommended


    1. Blade For the blade Lasik surgery, a surgeon uses a fine blade to open the flap of the cornea.

    2. Bladeless The bladeless Lasik surgery is done using a laser to cut open the flap of the cornea. This surgery is known as the FEMTO Lasik and is a painless surgery.

  • Option 2

    Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK):

    This surgery also uses a laser to reshape the cornea however, the method of surgery differed a bit from Lasik. During this surgery, the outer cells of the cornea are removed while keeping your eyes still by making you focus on a target light.

  • Option 3

    Small Incision Lenticule Extraction (SMILE):

    A minute incision is made on the surface of the cornea and it is reshaped using a laser. The incision heals on its own in a few days.

Meaning of LASIK

  • Symptoms of Eye Disorders

    Here are some indicators that you might have a visual disorder:

    • Difficulty in viewing objects The most prominent indicator of a problem in vision is the difficulty to focus on objects either far or near. Eye disorders impact the ability to focus on objects greatly.

    • Red eyes Eye disorders can irritate vision and lead to excessive stress on the eyes. This can cause redness of the eyes.

    • Night blindness Weaker eyesight can cause the inability to see properly in the dark since the light is not refracted properly in the eyes.

    • Headaches Headaches, when there is even a little strain on the eyes, is an indicator of an underlying eye disorder.

    • Sensitivity to light Sensitivity to light is a major indicator of eye disease.

    • Dry eyes If the eyes do not function properly or they need to stress more to see clearly, it can lead to dry eyes, indicating an eye disorder.

    • Excessive tearing A problem in vision can also lead to excessive tearing up of the eyes.

    • Blurred vision A disorder in the eye is the most probable cause of blurred vision.

  • Causes of eye problems where you need a Lasik surgery

    Lasik is a surgical method that can treat refractive errors in the eyes. Here are the major causes of refractive errors in the eyes:

    • Farsightedness: Hyperopia is a condition that is commonly known as farsightedness. This is the inability of the eyes to focus on objects that are nearby ie at a reading distance and objects that are away can be seen clearly. This disorder can cause difficulty while reading, headaches, doing precise work.

    • Nearsightedness: Myopia is a condition that is commonly called nearsightedness. This is a problem where the eyes can clearly see objects nearby but cannot focus on objects that are away. This may appear as difficulty in identifying faces of people away from you, reading captions and boards that are at a distance, difficulty in driving.

    • Astigmatism: Astigmatism is a disorder where the cornea of the eyes is shaped irregularly resulting in blurred vision.

LASIK is a term that means laser in-situ keratomileusis. It is a type of eye surgery that is used to correct defective vision in people. LASIK surgery is a laser refractive surgery that uses a special kind of laser to change the shape in front of the cornea (outer layer of the eye that helps light refract to the lenses). 

For people with normal eyesight, the cornea refracts(bends) the light entering the eyes onto the retina at the back portion of the eyes. However, defects in the cornea lead to incorrect refraction resulting in improper vision (short-sightedness or farsightedness). 

People with improper vision have to use glasses or contact lenses to view things normally. A LASIK surgery can help such people completely get rid of visual aids, and get their visual defect corrected permanently. The surgery is recommended for people with moderate levels of visual impairment.
