In LASIK surgery and PRK (The flapless, touchless Laser Refractive Surgery), precise and controlled removal of corneal tissue by a special laser reshapes the cornea changing its focusing power.
LASIK eye surgery provides a path to clear vision at any age. You can achieve freedom from glasses, contact lenses and endless prescriptions with a procedure that permanently improves the vision.
This laser vision correction technique is performed on the cornea so that light entering the eye can be focused on the retina for clear vision.
We at Saluja Eye Care Center provide personalized LASIK treatment such as HD procedure takes both lower (myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism) and higher-order aberrations (halos, starbursts and glare) into consideration and delivers a treatment based on each eyes unique visual fingerprint. This procedure is the most advanced form of laser vision correction.
We can treat one or both eyes and provide good vision at all distances (near, intermediate and far). It does not differ from a normal LASIK treatment.
The goal of LASIK is to correct your refractive error to improve your vision. LASIK eye surgery may reduce your need for eyeglasses or contact lenses. In some cases, it may even allow you to do without them completely.
To have LASIK surgery, you need to meet certain requirements. Here are some of them:
Some people are not candidates for LASIK. They include people with:
Your ophthalmologist can talk with you about other conditions that may keep you from having LASIK.
Your ophthalmologist will thoroughly examine your eyes and make sure you are a candidate for LASIK. Which is discussed in the section below.
Your eye surgeon uses a laser to reshape your cornea. Here is what to expect:
Like any surgery, LASIK carries risks of problems or complications you should consider.
Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) is a type of LASER refractive surgery available in Saluja Eye Care Center.
This kind of surgery uses a laser to treat vision problems caused by refractive errors. You have a refractive error when your eye does not refract (bend) light properly.
With PRK, your ophthalmologist uses a laser to change the shape of your cornea. This improves the way light rays are focused on the retina.
The goal of photorefractive keratectomy is to correct your refractive error to improve your vision. PRK may reduce your need for eyeglasses or contact lenses. In some cases, it may even allow you to do without them completely.
If you have dry eyes or thin corneas and want to have refractive surgery, PRK may be a good choice for you. This is because some other types of refractive surgery, such as LASIK, are not recommended if you have these conditions.
Also, if you have a very active lifestyle or job, PRK may be a better option for you than LASIK or similar procedures. This is because PRK does not involve cutting a flap in your cornea like LASIK and similar surgeries do. If you are highly active, you could accidentally dislodge a corneal flap, causing problems.
Some people who have certain lenses put in their eyes during cataract surgery may have PRK to fine-tune their vision.
Your ophthalmologist can talk with you about other conditions that may keep you from having PRK.
The overall health of your eyes will be checked. Measurements of your cornea will be taken. Your pupil size will be checked. Your refractive error will be measured. In some cases, your ophthalmologist will measure the quality and the amount of tears that your eyes make. This is to check if you have dry eye, and if so, how severe it is.
Six month after surgery, the vast majority of patients treated by us achieved the following:
Presbyopia LASIK :
Any surgical procedure that you elect can occur only after a careful evaluation of your eye and the type of refractive error that presently obscures your vision. The exact price is determined after a thorough examination of both the eyes and understanding your health history.

LASIK in Indore – Choose the Right Procedure for Laser Eye Surgery
When glasses or contact lenses become a trouble in your life, LASIK surgery offers an alternative that can give you a clear vision again. The innovative technology treats the most common types of refractive errors that you may know as nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia) and astigmatism. Changes in the structure of your eye that alter your vision may relate to age or to coping with the challenges that result from the way that you use your eyes. LASIK surgery offers a highly successful approach to permanently improving your vision without ever having to use glasses or contact lenses ever again.
Wavefront adds an automatic measurement of more subtle distortions (called higher order aberrations) than just nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism corrected by conventional LASIK. However, these “higher order aberrations” account for only a small amount (probably no more than 10%) of the total refractive error of the average person’s eye. Conventional LASIK increases higher order aberrations. Although wavefront-guided treatments attempt to eliminate higher order aberrations, results from the clinical studies have shown that the average aberrations still increase, but less than they do after conventional LASIK. In a few studies comparing wavefront-guided LASIK to conventional LASIK, a slightly larger percentage of subjects treated with wavefront LASIK achieved 20/20 vision without glasses or contact lenses compared to subjects treated with conventional LASIK.
