LASIK eye surgery at the Apollo Hospitals Hyderabad

Photo Refractive Kertectomy (PRK)

Apollo Specialty Hospital, Apollo Specialty Cancer Hospital In this procedure the laser treatment is directly performed on the surface of the cornea to reshape it for correction of refractive errors. This is usually performed for people with smaller refractive errors. The surface layer usually takes 3-4 days to heal and the vision gradually improves thereafter.

Laser in Situ Keretomileusis (LASIK)

Cancer Hospital Hyderabad, Healthcare Facilities In HyderabadThis procedure involves first creating a thin flap of cornea with an instrument called the microkeratome. Followed by lifting of the flap and laser treatment to reshape the cornea. The flap is then repositioned in its original place. Improvement in vision is noted right from the next day.

The beam profile of Wave light laser has been wave front optimized, hence it removes lesser amount of corneal tissue when compared to other laser machines, thus making the treatment more safer for your eyes. Wavefront optimization also ensures that you do not experience any glare or halos during the night while looking at bright lights.

Wavelight laser allows multiple options for customized treatments, such as wave front guided, topography guided, Q factor guided treatments. Such treatment modalities are far superior when compared to those with other lasers such as zyoptix, custom vue, or custom cornea.

Both PRK and LASIK procedures are absolutely painless and are performed as outpatient procedure using topical anesthetic eye drops. The entire procedure lasts for only 10 -15 minutes and you will be awake during the entire procedure. During the treatment you are required to look at a fixation light while the laser is performed and you will also hear the noise of the laser machine during the treatment.

The actual laser treatment only lasts for 15 to 45 seconds. Following the treatment you can return home immediately. However you should make arrangements for a friend or relative to take you home after the procedure.
