|Myopia or short sightedness
Refers to a state of the eye, wherein the rays of light coming from a distant target, get focused at a point in front of the
retina. In this situation, minus powered glasses or contact lenses are necessary to focus this image onto the retina
|Hyperopia or long sightedness
Refers to a state of the eye, wherein the rays of light coming from a distant target, get focused at a point behind the
retina. In this situation, plus powered glasses or contact lenses are necessary to focus this image onto the retina
|Astigmatism or cylindrical power
Refers to a state of the eye, wherein the rays of light coming from a distant target, cannot focus at a single point on the
retina. In this situation special lenses of different curvature are required to focus the light onto the retina

|Are You Eligible for LASIK?
While most patients are eligible for LASIK, not everyone is.
An ideal candidate for refractive surgery
Eligibility also depends on the amount of refractive error, the curvature and thickness of the cornea and a
number of other factors that an ophthalmologist must evaluate.
Proper patient selection is vital for successful refractive surgery and a satisfied patient.

underwent LASIK procedure in
both eyes in 1999, following which
he won four golf championships

|We feel it is of extreme importance
that you meet the surgeon who
performs the procedure prior to
making an informed decision on
whether to have the surgery.
The corneal surgeon will discuss
the risks and benefits of LASIK
with you and will try to tell you what
you can expect.

|Will I need to wear glasses or contact lenses after the procedure ?
These procedures are designed to allow you to discontinue the use of corrective lenses for routine daily work. In over 98%
patients there is no need for any glasses or contact lenses. However very rarely in some patients with higher refractive errors,
corrective lenses of minimal residual power may still be required following the treatment. This residual refractive error can often be
corrected by a second refractive procedure (enhancement). Sometimes the surgeon may choose to leave behind minimal amount
of refractive error in one eye to allow near vision in individuals above the age of 40. This is called Monovision
When can I resume normal activities ?
You can return to work after 3 days if advanced surface ablation has been performed. Following LASIK you can return to work the
following day. While most activities can be resumed, it is better to avoid swimming, contact sports etc at least for a one month
Are the results of LASIK permanent?
LASIK permanently removes corneal tissue to reshape the eye in order to improve refraction. The physical results are permanent.
However, you should be aware that since the eyes can still change with time, LASIK does not prevent presbyopia or affect this
condition once it does occur.
Should I undergo LASIK ?
Ophthalmologists all over the world have been reshaping the cornea using the excimer laser since the 1990s. LASIK has been
performed internationally for approximately two decades now. Laser refractive surgery when performed by a qualified, cornea
specialist, does promise reducing one's dependence on contacts or glasses. For many people, this will allow them to more freely
pursue their hobbies, sports activities or career options.

|Wavelight Allegretto Eye Q laser
500th installation in 2005 at
Cornea Clinic Apollo Hospitals, Jubilee Hills
Hyderabad 500096, India
Over 6000 cases performed successfully since then
And now the laser has been upgraded with the new
Wavelight EX 500 laser system
|Cornea Clinic at Apollo Hospitals is equipped with the most advanced Laser systems currently available in the world.
Wavelight EX-500 Excimer Laser from Alcon, is the fastest laser system, which treats 1 diopter of power in just 1.3 seconds. It has a
sophisticated eye tracking system to ensure perfect delivery of laser pulses during treatment. Online pachymetry allows accurate
measurement of corneal thickness during treatment which increases the safety of the procedure. Treatment can be customized
based on topography or wavefront maps (none of these are possible with lenticule extraction procedures such as SMILE or Relex)
Ziemer Z6 femtosecond laser system allows creation of corneal flaps for LASIK in a gentle and easy manner. Unlike other
femtosecond laser system which work at microjoules of pulse energy, the Z6 works with nanjoules of pulse energy which makes it
very gentle on the cornea, and separation of corneal layers occurs with relatively much more ease.
