    Conditions due to which the risk increases

    Lasik surgery is not recommended by the eye specialist when you have certain health conditions (mentioned below) which increase the risk or the outcome is not predictable.
    Lasik may not be advised if you have the following conditions:
    Eye disease

    Preparation for Lasik surgery

  • Few weeks prior to the surgery you should stop wearing contact lenses and switch to wearing glasses. The shape of the cornea is distorted by the use of contact lenses and this can lead to inaccuracy in measurements and unsatisfactory surgical outcome.

  • Stop using eye makeup, lotions and creams from a day prior to the surgery. The eye specialist may advice you to clean the eyelashes more often so as to remove the debris and minimize infection.

  • You will need somebody to bring you home after the surgery as the vision may be blurred and you may still be affected by the effects of the medications.

  • Procedure for Lasik eye surgery

    Laser is used during Lasik eye surgery to remove definite amount of tissue from the cornea.
    Before the surgery the eye doctor conducts the detailed surgical and medical history and does a comprehensive examination of the eye. He will measure the cornea and take note of its shape, thickness, contour and irregularities if any.
  • You will need somebody to bring you home after the surgery as the vision may be blurred and you may still be affected by the effects of the medications.

  • During Lasik surgery

  • It takes about 30 minutes or less to complete the Lasik eye surgery. The doctor places numbing drops in the eye and then the eyelids are held open by an instrument.
    Before cutting the corneal flap the doctor places the suction ring on the eye due to which you may feel the pressure and the vision dims a little.
    Preparation for Lasik surgery

    The eye surgeon uses a cutting laser or a small blade to cut a hinged flap from the front of the eye so that he can get access to the cornea to reshape it. Read More..
  • Post-operative care

  • Post the surgery there may be burning and itching in the eye and it might also water. You might also experience some pain and the vision is blurred.
    Medications and eye drops are prescribed by the doctor and you are asked to protect your eye by wearing a shield at night till the time it heals.
    It takes about 2 to 3 months for the eye to heal and the vision to stabilize.
    You need to follow-up with the eye surgeon after a day or two after the surgery so that he can see if the eye is healing and check for any complications.
    You need to follow-up with the doctor for six months after the surgery
    Swimming and strenuous sports are not allowed for several weeks after the surgery.
