Blade Free LASIK Surgery In Ambala

Have you ever dreamt of waking to clear vision without reaching for your glasses or fumbling with contact lenses? Blade-free LASIK surgery might be the answer to making that dream a reality. This cutting-edge vision correction procedure offers numerous advantages over traditional LASIK, making it an attractive option for those seeking to improve their eyesight. Are you ready to see the world through a crystal-clear lens? Let’s uncover the secrets of blade-free LASIK!

What is Blade Free LASIK LASER Surgery?

Blade-free LASIK, also known as bladeless LASIK surgery, is a refractive procedure that utilizes a Femtosecond LASER instead of a Microkeratome Blade to create a corneal flap. This innovative approach to LASIK, often referred to as Bladeless surgery, has revolutionized the way eye surgeons perform vision correction surgeries, offering patients a safer and more precise treatment option compared to traditional LASIK.

The Femtosecond Laser

So, what sets blade-free LASIK apart from its blade counterpart?

At the heart of blade-free LASIK lies the femtosecond laser, a high-energy laser that replaces the microkeratome blade used in traditional LASIK. This advanced laser technology allows for more accurate and customizable corneal flap creation, providing improved visual outcomes for patients. But how does the femtosecond laser achieve this level of precision?

The femtosecond laser generates rapid pulses of laser energy to create the lasik flap, also known as a corneal flap or hinged flap, with unprecedented accuracy, ensuring the corneal tissue remains intact. This computer-controlled technology ensures precise surgical control, allowing the surgeon to create laser flaps with extremely precise edges. As a result, blade-free LASIK offers a higher level of precision and a reduced risk of complications compared to the mechanical microkeratome blade used in traditional LASIK. In addition, the excimer laser is utilized in the LASIK procedure to reshape the cornea for vision correction.

Beyond its application in LASIK, the femtosecond laser also plays a crucial role in cataract surgery. Cataract surgery involves removing the clouded natural lens of the eye and replacing it with an artificial one. The femtosecond laser is used to create precise incisions in the cornea, allowing for the removal of the cataract. This laser-assisted cataract surgery enhances the precision and safety of the procedure, minimizing potential risks and complications. Thus, the femtosecond laser, with its high precision and versatility, has revolutionized the field of ophthalmic surgery, contributing significantly to procedures like LASIK and cataract surgery.

Benefits of Blade-Free LASIK Surgery

Choosing blade-free LASIK for your vision correction procedure can provide several advantages, including increased precision, reduced risk of complications, and faster recovery time. These benefits make blade-free LASIK an attractive option for those seeking to improve their eyesight without the potential drawbacks of traditional LASIK.

We will examine each of these benefits in depth.

– Precision and Control

One of the most significant advantages of blade-free LASIK is the unparalleled precision and control offered by the femtosecond laser. By producing highly accurate and customizable corneal flaps, the femtosecond laser allows the surgeon to achieve optimal visual results

– Reduced Risk of Complications

Blade-free LASIK also reduces the risk of flap complications, such as flap irregularities and infections, compared to traditional LASIK. The more predictable corneal flap thickness achieved with the femtosecond laser decreases the likelihood of induced astigmatism and other flap-related complications.

Faster Recovery Time

One of the most appealing aspects of blade-free LASIK is the typically faster recovery time compared to traditional LASIK. The uniform flap thickness created in blade-free LASIK, combined with factors such as laser incisions and post-operative care, contribute to the accelerated healing process.

How long does it take to recover from Bladeless LASIK?
Your vision may still be blurry on the day after Bladeless LASIK and it may take a week or more to improve. PRK patients should expect to be blurry for the first several days. Patients are to continue their medications as instructed and follow-up as scheduled.
Is Bladeless LASIK safe?
Bladeless laser eye surgery, compared to blade procedures, significantly reduces the risk of flap complications such as buttonholes (abnormal lamellar cuts), partial flaps or free caps (where the hinge of the corneal flap detaches).
What are the benefits of bladeless LASIK?

Faster recovery – Recovery is much quicker and most people can get back to work in as little as 24 hours. Increased safety – The thickness of the corneal flap created by a bladeless LASIK is the same in every part irrespective of the natural curve of the cornea.

When did Bladeless LASIK start?
In 2001, the FDA approved “bladeless” LASIK or IntraLASE, in which the surgeon uses a femtosecond laser instead of the microkeratome blade to make the corneal flap incision. Dr. J. Trevor Woodhams was the first eye surgeon in Georgia to perform this blade-free procedure.
Does Bladeless LASIK heal faster?
Bladeless LASIK eye surgery is an outpatient procedure that is quick, painless, and effective. This procedure corrects refractive vision errors in a revolutionary manner that is unique. You will heal faster when compared to a traditional LASIK treatment and will require fewer visits to your eye doctor.
What are the don'ts after eye surgery?
Keep water, soap, shampoo, hair spray, and shaving lotion out of your eye, especially for the first week. Do not rub or put pressure on your eye for at least 1 week. Do not wear eye makeup for 1 to 2 weeks. You may also want to avoid face cream or lotion.
How is Bladeless LASIK done?
A thin flap is created in the cornea using the ultra-fast Femtosecond laser. The wavelength of the Femtosecond laser is 1053 nm, and it moves a billion times faster than a blink of the eye.
Does LASIK remove glasses permanently?
LASIK is permanent. LASIK permanently corrects the vision prescription that you have at the time of surgery. This means that it cannot wear off. However, any underlying conditions such as presbyopia that progress over time can cause changes to your vision, making the original LASIK procedure less effective.
Will I ever need glasses again after LASIK?
What many don’t realize is that LASIK surgery doesn’t protect against age-related eye conditions or remove certain refractive errors caused by the thickness of the cornea. For this reason, even individuals who have had successful LASIK surgery may need glasses.
Why is my vision not 100% after LASIK?
Another common side effect after LASIK is cloudy or blurry vision. While you will see better the day after surgery, your vision may be a bit blurry or hazy immediately afterward. These temporary vision difficulties usually clear up after the first few weeks.
Can LASIK cure myopia?
LASIK is indicated for the correction of low, moderate, and high myopia with and without astigmatism. The specific dioptric limits depends on the specific laser system.

Why You Should See Cornea Specialist for LASIK Surgery?

Performed 7000+ LASIK Surgeries

Dr. Vikas Mittal

Ophthalmologists are all cornea trained- but not all are cornea specialists. When getting LASIK surgery you should want the best.

Ophthalmologists can check your eyes for vision related problems and prescribe corrective glasses or contact lenses to rectify nearsightedness (myopia) or farsightedness (hyperopia). They can also check your eyes for diseases and prescribe suitable medicines in the form of drops and ointments for local application or antibiotics to be taken orally. However, LASIK surgery is your sole option if you want to rectify your faulty eyesight and do not want to wear contact lenses or glasses. It is ideal to get this corrective eye surgery done by a cornea specialist; since it involves raising a flap of the corneal surface of your eye and removing microscopic amounts of tissue from the cornea’s underlying stromal layer with the help of excimer lasers.

LASIK surgery: Is it right for you?

LASIK eye surgery may mean no more corrective lenses. But it’s not right for everybody. LASIK surgery has a good track record. Complications are rare, and most people are satisfied with the results. Certain side effects, particularly dry eyes and temporary visual issues (such as glare), are fairly common. These usually clear up after a few weeks or months, though some people consider them to be a long-term problem.

Typically, images are focused on the retina in the back of the eye. With nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism, images are focused either in front of or behind the retina. This results in blurred vision.
