Advancements and Future of Lasik surgery

LASIK eye surgery is a refractive eye surgery that makes use of lasers to fix issues with your vision. This surgery is an outpatient procedure, meaning you can go home on the same day. LASIK corrects refractive errors, which happen when your eye can't refract (bend) light as it ought to. Refractive errors lead to blurry vision. LASIK surgery in Hyderabad can assist you see more clearly and help you to have a better quality of life.

Advancements of Lasik Surgery

Customized LASIK Treatment

It is considered a secure and successful future of LASIK without any postoperative complications. Customized LASIK treatment utilises a computer known as a wavefront device. The device is used to carry out an examination of the cornea and figure out how to enhance the vision without compromising the shape of the cornea.

Microkeratome technology

A microkeratome may be a bladed instrument used to form a lean cut within the cornea and make a flap of the cornea. To impart the laser energy the flap is then lifted. The laser energy reshapes the eye for vision correction. The technology is alluded to as microkeratome technology.

Femtosecond LASER

Femtosecond LASER is another technology of microkeratome. It incorporates a high-energy laser rather than employing a blade. It is usually known as bladeless or all-laser LASIK.

Visual Supportive technology

The unused technology utilized in detecting forme fruste keratoconus, the corneal surface irregularities and minimise the risk of post-LASIK ectasia. It maps the anterior and posterior surfaces of the cornea. The technology incorporates videokeratography, Placido-disc based topography and optical coherence tomography that give comprehensive detail of patients' suitability for LASIK.

Customised ablation

Customized Ablation makes use of wavefront technology to measure and treat optical imperfections within the human eye or cornea. Targeted beam of light is passed through the eye. The light beam appears out of the eye optical structures. A sensor captures and examines it to detect any abnormalities within the wavefront design of light. It makes a 3D visual map of the optical system and captures it within the computer system to form a customized treatment plan.

Intralase

Intralase is a blade-free laser technology that replaces the traditional way of making the corneal flap through the microkeratome. It minimises the most of the complications that arises because of the utilisation of microkeratome.

Adaptive Optics

When the irregularity of the eyes surface makes distortion of images, adaptive optics is utilized in ophthalmic surgery to correct the wavefront abnormality of the human eye.

LASEK and Epi-LASIK

LASEK (laser epithelial keratomileusis) the surface of the cornea is eliminated with diluted alcohol. In this process, the laser reshapes the cornea and the surface of the cornea heals over couple of days at the same place.

Epi-LASIK is comparable to LASEK but the surface of the cornea is lifted through a unique equipment called epikeratome then permitting the laser to reshape the cornea.

Both the procedures are utilized to reshape the cornea hence by improving the vision by allowing the light to focus on the retina
