the world's fastest lasik laser treatment
LASIK surgery, in the conventional sense, uses a blade to cut a flap on the cornea. This places a lot of restrictions for certain cases of eye conditions, especially for patients with thin cornea. In such cases, the doctor will recommend Bladeless Lasik.
In Bladeless Lasik, the new WaveLight FS2000 Femtosecond Laser is used instead of the blade for all-laser LASIK surgery. With the help of a computer designed for the Femtosecond laser, surgeons can create a thin flap in the patient’s cornea. The laser also operates at an exceptionally high speed that allows tissue to be targeted and divided at the molecular level.
Another advantage of a Femtosecond laser is that the surrounding tissues are not impacted during the surgery due to its unbelievable accuracy, unlike the conventional methods that use a microkeratome blade to create the corneal flap. The flap structure created by the Femtosecond laser has a very low chance of cells growing underneath. In conventional LASIK, pushing the flap can cause an irregular cornea surface that can lead to vision defects which is a side effect to these traditional LASIK surgeries.
Like any other LASIK surgery, bladeless LASIK surgery may have side effects but they are comparatively very low and less severe. One such recorded side effect is light sensitivity; it is a temporary side effect and resolves soon. Dry eye is also recorded as a side effect but the chances are very low and very few enhancements are required with bladeless LASIK.
There are four steps involved in the surgery:
Amrit Hospital was conceptualized with an aim to strive to provide patients with a safe place to get treated. We strive to put our patients’ comfort and treatability above our own concerns. Therefore, we stress on using the latest technology in terms of biomedical equipment, laboratory, surgeries, etc. Amrit Hospital has opted for the latest in LASIK technologies to fight the ophthalmological issues that affect the majority of the patients.
