In our modern competitive society, a pleasing appearance often means the difference between success and failure in both our personal and professional lives. Men and women are very conscious about their appearance. The present generation is giving importance to their aesthetics in every aspect to improve their personality. Aesthetics is critical today not because other factors don’t matter, but because competition has pushed quality so high that style is often the only way to stand out.
Wearing or not wearing glasses affects your appearance and other people’s perceptions of you. Millions across the world rely on spectacles or lenses for precise vision. And you just might be one of them. The solution is at your doorstep – advanced laser technology can free you from your dependence on eye glasses.
Refractive surgery is swiftly transforming vision correction process world over with impressive results. Common vision problems like near sightedness, far sightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia can now be treated with laser technology.
At Infiniti Eye Hospital, we offer state of the art instrumentation blended with the expertise of highly skilled doctors that ensures utmost care for your eyes. We are one among the select few centers in India, offering the most advanced laser vision correction procedure technology, SMILE.
SMILE (Small Incision Lenticular Extraction) is the most advanced 3rd generation of laser vision correction. It is minimally invasive, flapless and bladeless procedure that combines the advantage of previous two generations with increased safety and comfort.ReLEx SMILE is a further advancement over LASIK / Femto-LASIK.
ReLEx SMILE is a breakthrough in laser vision correction offering a whole new level of precision, safety and comfort. In fact, you might just experience the world through a whole new lens-your natural ones.
ReLEx SMILE is a pain free, minimally invasive approach with the advantage of a 100% blade–free laser vision correction. This procedure involves no corneal flaps; refractive changes are made in the intact cornea itself.
Unlike the conventional procedures, ReLEx SMILE involves the creation of an extremely thin 3D layer in your intact cornea, corresponding to your refractive number that needs correction. This is then extracted out through a small keyhole incision of about 2-4mm only. As a result, the cornea gets reshaped to correspond to the ideal shape for correct vision. Entirely laser controlled, it is done in a few seconds- precise, safe and comfortable.
The ReLEx SMILE technique is performed using the highly precise advanced VisuMax femtosecond laser from Carl Zeiss AG, Germany. This laser system has impressed both the patients and the physicians alike with its sophisticated technology and its precision and reliability. ReLEx SMILE using VisuMax promises accuracy down to the nearest micrometer precision.
• The cornea surface is left untouched, preserving its biomechanical strength and stability better than other techniques.
• Inflammation is reduced to negligible as the total laser energy used is up to 10 times lesser than an excimer laser.
• Likeliness of dry eyes is significantly lowered, since no flap is created.
• There is no use of surgical cutting instruments and involves no change of equipment during the treatment.
• Since this procedure is minimally invasive, it involves minimum intervention and therefore less after care is required, enabling you to enjoy your new visual sensation right from day one.
PRK:(Photo Refractive Keratectomy)
Photo refractive keratectomy (PRK) is a type of laser eye surgery designed to correct vision problems like nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. PRK came before laser procedure called laser-assisted-in-situ keratomileusis (LASIK), but PRK is still performed frequently and regularly with good success rate.
LASIK: (Laser Assisted In-situ Keratomileusis)
LASIK , the laser procedure permanently changes the shape of the cornea, the clear covering of the front of the eye, using an excimer laser.
It is a two-step procedure which begins with a hinged flap creation using a mechanical microkeratome (a blade device)
The flap is folded back revealing the stroma, the middle section of the cornea. Laser pulses from excimer vaporizes a predetermined portion of the stroma and the flap is replaced.
Femto-LASIK: (Bladeless LASIK)
In Femto LASIK, the flap is created with laser instead of blade as in conventional LASIK.
Advantages of Femto LASIK over LASIK:
• Smooth and even corneal flaps
• Thinner flaps, less tissue ablation
• Safer and more precise method
• More gentle method
• Faster vision rehabilitation
• No cut-related complications
• No black-outs during the treatment
• No blocking of the retina’s blood circulation
