Eye Care

Our eyes have been inspiring authors and philosophers for thousands of years. Some claim they can tell quite a bit about a person just by looking into their eyes, even peering into the depths of their soul. But we will leave all the deep talk to our experienced physicians who give a new dimension to the eye care concept by combining high quality standards, innovative medical technologies and reliable medical applications .

LASIK Eye Surgery

LASIK eye surgery is the laser refractive eye surgery to correct vision problems. Laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) can be an alternative to glasses or contact lenses.

During LASIK surgery, a special type of cutting laser is used to precisely change the shape of the dome-shaped clear tissue at the front of your eye (cornea) to improve vision.

In eyes with normal vision, the cornea refracts light precisely onto the retina at the back of the eye. But with nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia) or astigmatism, the light is bent incorrectly, resulting in blurred vision.

Glasses or contact lenses can correct vision, but reshaping the cornea itself also will provide the necessary refraction.

LASIK Eye Surgery Correction

LASIK eye surgery may be an option for the correction of one of these vision problems:

  • Myopia: When your eyeball is slightly longer than normal or when the cornea curves too sharply, light rays focus in front of the retina and blur distant vision. You can see objects that are close fairly clearly, but not those that are far away.

  • Hyperopia: When you have a shorter than average eyeball or a cornea that is too flat, light focuses behind the retina instead of on it. This makes near vision, and sometimes distant vision, blurry.

  • Astigmatism: When the cornea curves or flattens unevenly, the result is astigmatism, which disrupts focus of near and distant vision.

Types of Eye Surgery Procedures for Vision Correction

  • Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK): With PRK, rather than forming a flap, the top surface (epithelium) is scraped away. This corneal abrasion takes three or four days to heal, resulting in moderate pain and blurred vision in the short term.

    It was thought that these drawbacks were outweighed by the theoretical advantage that PRK was safer for people who are more likely to be struck in the eye.

  • Laser-assisted subepithelial keratectomy (LASEK): LASEK is similar to LASIK surgery, but the flap is created by using microkeratome and exposing the cornea to ethanol. The procedure allows the surgeon to remove less of the cornea, making it a good option for people who have thin corneas. 

  • Epithelial laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis (epi-LASIK): In an epi-LASIK procedure, your surgeon separates the epithelium from the middle part of the cornea using epikeratome and reshapes the cornea with a laser. This procedure is similar to LASEK.

  • Implantable lenses: Corrective lenses can be surgically inserted in the eye to improve vision. This is routinely done as part of cataract surgery. It may also be an alternative to LASIK for older adults who may need cataract surgery in the future.

  • Bioptics: Bioptics combines one or more techniques, such as implantable lenses and LASIK, to treat myopia or hyperopia.

Refractive Intraocular Lens

Refractive Intraocular lens exchange, also called lens replacement surgery or clear lens extraction, may be a better option than LASIKPRK or phakic IOL refractive surgery for people with presbyopia and high hyperopia.

Refractive lens exchange (RLE) replaces your eye's clear natural lens with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL) to correct your refractive error and achieve sharper focus, reducing your need for reading glasses or bifocals.

Refractive lens exchange typically is for people with presbyopia or extreme farsightedness, for whom LASIK, PRK or phakic IOL surgery generally are not suitable. If you have both presbyopia and moderate to severe hyperopia, Refractive Lens Exchange may be the only viable option for clear vision and minimal reliance on glasses after refractive surgery.

Lens replacement surgery also can correct myopia (nearsightedness), but generally it is not recommended when LASIK, PRK or phakic IOLs are available.

The procedure for refractive lens exchange is virtually identical to cataract surgery. The difference is that in RLE, the lens being replaced is clear, rather than a cloudy lens due to a cataract.

Types of Intraocular Lens IOLs

 There are three types of IOLs available to replace the natural lens, depending on the vision needs and the health of the eyes:

  • Monofocal fixed-focus IOLs: Monofocal lenses provide clear vision at distance, intermediate, or near ranges.

  • Multifocal IOLs: A multifocal lens provides clear vision at multiple distances.

  • Accommodating IOLs: An accommodating IOL is a type of mono focal lens that enables focus at multiple distances by shifting its position in the eye.

Cornea Transplant

Cornea transplant is a procedure that replaces your cornea, the clear front layer of your eye. During this procedure, Eye surgeon removes damaged or diseased corneal tissue. Healthy corneal tissue from the eye of a deceased human donor replaces the damaged cornea. For many people, cornea transplant surgery restores clear vision and improves their quality of life.
