LOOKING TO GET LASER CORRECTION FOR SPECS REMOVAL?
Many individuals across the globe undergo eye surgeries each day to resolve eyesight problems. One of the most common eyesight glitches is refractive error because of the cornea failing to focus light appropriately on the retina. This failure generally results in nearsightedness and farsightedness. Depending on the errors, an appropriate treatment plan is made like LASIK, Femto-LASIK (also called Robotic LASIK) and SMILE for Laser vision correction where surgery is executed to restructure the cornea. At The Sight Avenue, we offer solutions like Femto Second Laser and SMILE technology for LASER vision correction.

BASIC PRINCIPLE – RESHAPING OF CORNEA
PRK (1ST GENERATION REFRACTIVE SURGERY
PRK (photorefractive keratectomy) is a type of refractive surgery(Lasik Surgery) to correct myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism. In this, the laser is used on the surface of cornea. It is used less commonly these days.
LASIK (2ND GENERATION REFRACTIVE SURGERY)
In LASIK, cornea is reshaped by creating a flap, removing the underlying corneal tissue with laser and replacing the flap back there by correcting the spectacle number.
FEMTO-LASIK / I-LASIK/ CONTOURA VISION / BLADEFREE LASIK (2ND GENERATION REFRACTIVE SURGERY)
With traditional LASIK, a controlled blade (microkeratome) is used to create the flap (a kind of hinged piece of corneal tissue). With advanced Femto-LASIK, a highly precise flap is quickly created with a femtosecond laser. Femto Second LASIK is one of the most preferred LASIK treatment. The procedure can correct a number of other errors other than refractive errors. Using computerised programming, it is possible to maintain robotic accuracy with this procedure. As no incisions are made, it is very safe and has excellent outcomes.
SMILE (3RD GENERATION REFRACTIVE SURGERY )
SMILE (Small Incision Lenticule Extraction) The procedure reshapes the cornea by removing a small lenticule without creating a flap, making it the safest treatment available for laser vision correction. It is minimally invasive and preferred over all types of LASIK treatments. It is the future of all spectacles removal technologies.
AGE FOR LASIK EYE SURGERY
There is no stern age requirement. However, maximum folks by the age of 20-21 have reached a point at which their glasses prescription will remain. The key to being a good contender is that your glasses and/or contact lens prescription should be somewhat stable. We have treated patients 19-70 years of age with LASIK.
LASIK SURGERY PROCEDURE
Throughout the process you are awake. Eye drops are the solitary anesthesia. Sedation is not essential, but you might take an oral tranquilizer. Your eyelids and lashes are cleaned for sterility and a gluey drape keeps your lashes out of the way. Your lids are mildly opened. You look at a blinking red light which keeps your eye appropriately positioned. During the flap creation stage, you have a sensation of heaviness and a grayness of vision. Then the laser is used and you will hear a quick clicking sound. The flap is replaced and it takes about 3 minutes for it to shut. After the process, you will leave with an eye shield and eye drops to help your eye reconcile. Also, your vision might be a little blurred for a couple of days. The process takes under 10 minutes per eye. Maximum patients are able to go back to work in 24 hours, and over three or four weeks, have ongoing improvement in their vision.
