What is LASIK?

LASIK, or “laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis,” is the most commonly performed laser eye surgery to treat myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism.

Like other types of refractive surgery, LASIK reshapes the cornea to enable light entering the eye to be properly focused onto the retina for clear vision.

LASIK is SAFE, PROVEN, TRUSTED. It takes only 10 minutes to get rid of your glasses. Laser vision correction has enabled millions of people worldwide to enjoy a new found freedom-Living their lives without the inconvenience of glasses or contact lenses.


Many refer to this surgery as bladeless femtolaser wavefront LASIK or i-LASIK. Making a corneal flap is necessary for this laser procedure, however a Femtosecond laser is used in place of a microkeratome. Hence, it is called “bladeless.” After this, the prescription for eyeglasses must be treated with a second laser (the excimer laser). The Contoura vision is what we’re now using because it produces the best outcomes.

2. PRK

Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) is a type of refractive surgery. The goal of photorefractive keratectomy is to correct your refractive error to improve your vision.

Should I Get PRK?

PRK can be an excellent option for you if you wish to have refractive surgery but have dry eyes or thin corneas. This is due to the fact that you shouldn’t get some other types of refractive surgery, including LASIK, if you have these diseases.

Additionally, PRK may be a better option for you than LASIK or other operations if you lead an extremely active lifestyle. This is due to the fact that, unlike LASIK and other comparable procedures, PRK does not require cutting a flap in your cornea. However, LASIK requires less time for visual recovery.

3. Standard LASIK

Instead of using a Femto-laser in this procedure, a microkeratome is used to lift the corneal flap. More corneal tissue is required for the same amount of corrections because the flap typically has a thickness of 120 microns, but by forgoing the Femto laser, costs are dramatically reduced.

Frequently Asked

LASIK (LASER IN SITU KERATOMILEUSIS) is an advanced laser surgery that permanently eliminates your dependence on corrective eyewear i.e. glasses and / or contact lenses with the resultant lifestyle advantages.

A wide range of refractive errors can be corrected including near sightedness, far sightedness & astigmatism. Near sightedness is an eye number which ranges from 0 to minus 22 diopter. Far sightedness is a number which ranges from 0 to plus 5 diopter. Astigmatism (Cylindrical) 0 to 6 diopter cyl.
