Advances in science and technology have brought significant benefits and advantages to the treatment of eye diseases. Among other technologies, lasers have proved especially useful in eye care, where they are used to correct refractive errors to eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses. Lotus Eye Hospital and Institute have been one of the pioneers of Lasik laser eye surgery in India and committedly pioneering in technological revolution in Lasik and helping thousands of patients from across the globe to see the world better than ever before. Lasik is performed in four centers at Coimbatore, Tirupur, Salem and Kochi.
Lasik procedure consists of two steps. First making a thin hinged flap on the cornea, after lifting the flap Zyoptix Ultimate procedure is performed on the bed of the flap. The corneal flap is repositioned after the completion of treatment. It takes 10-15 minutes for the both the eyes.
The Lasik flap creation can be performed in two ways: i.e., using a mechanical microkeratome and 100% blade free Femtosecond laser (Intralase – Intralase has many advantages).
Lower Order aberrations – consist primarily of myopia (near sightness), hyperopia (far sightness) as well as astigmatism (distorted vision). These aberrations are relatively simple aberrations and are thus called lower order aberrations. Lower order aberrations affect how much you can see (visual acuity measured by the standard eye chart) but not how well you can see in terms of contrast sensitivity and fine details.
Higher order aberrations – are more complex imperfections of your entire eye which includes coma, trefoil and spherical aberration. Higher order aberration may influence your quality of vision as they may lead to disturbances such as glare, halos, night driving problems, loss of contrast sensitivity, etc., No eye is perfect which means that all eyes have at least some degree of higher order aberrations (pre existing aberrations). Even the Lasik procedure itself may induce higher order aberrations (post Lasik aberrations) as an unwanted side effect. You may achieve 20/20 vision but your quality of vision may not be as good
