Laser eye surgery is a surgical procedure that uses a laser to reshape the cornea of the eye in order to correct vision problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.
The actual laser treatment typically takes about five minutes per eye, but you should expect to spend a few hours at the clinic on the day of the procedure, including time for pre-operative preparations and post-operative observation.
The procedure itself is generally not painful because anesthetic eye drops are used to numb the eyes. However, some patients may experience some discomfort for a few hours following the surgery.
Most patients can return to work and normal activities within a few days after the surgery, but it can take 3-4 weeks for the eyes to fully heal and for vision to stabilize.
Although laser eye surgery is generally considered safe, there are some potential risks and complications, including dry eyes, glare, undercorrection or overcorrection. Serious complications like corneal ectasia are extremely rare.
The ideal candidate for laser eye surgery is someone over the age of 18 ideally 21 yrs with stable vision and refraction and normal corneal topography. However, the suitability of laser eye surgery depends on several factors, including the patient's eye health, medical history and expectations from surgery.
Laser eye surgery can correct many types of refractive error problems, including nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. However, it may not be suitable for patients with other eye diseases causing poor vision.
The cost of laser eye surgery varies depending on the type of procedure performed. On average, the cost can range from Rs. 30,000 to Rs. 65,000 per eye.
Yes, it is possible to repeat laser eye surgery if necessary, although it is rarely needed.
