Why choose Blade free LASIK?
- Blade free procedure; uses a laser to create corneal flap instead of a mechanical metallic blade
- Personalized treatment for any kind of refractive error
- Safer than standard LASIK
- Treats patients with high refractive errors and thin corneas too.
In any LASIK procedure the first step is to create a corneal flap. In standard LASIK the surgeon uses a hand-held oscillating blade called microkeratome to cut the corneal flap. The flap is then folded and the Excimer laser treats the cornea to correct the refractive error.
In blade free LASIK, femtosecond laser has replaced the steel blade for creation of the corneal flap which improves visual outcome and post-operative comfort for the patient.
When you opt for advanced blade free LASIK procedure you get a completely integrated, personalized vision correction procedure based on cutting edge technology at every step. NASA recommends blade free LASIK to aspiring astronauts to get rid of their specs, as it can withstand high gravitational forces and has been found to be stable and secure even in extreme environmental conditions.
Find out if LASIK is right for you
For people with nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia) or astigmatism, LASIK surgery could be the key to a life free of bulky spectacles or contact lenses. But not everybody is a suitable candidate for this type of laser eye surgery. Here are the few main questions a LASIK surgeon is likely to ask you during a consultation.
How stable is your vision prior to LASIK?
No matter your age, it’s important for your eyesight to have stabilized for at least a year before you have laser surgery.
What is your current eye prescription?
In terms of refraction (i.e. spectacle degree), the main limitation to LASIK is the patient’s cornea thickness. This means that even patients who have high myopia or astigmatism can undergo LASIK as long as their cornea is sufficiently thick.
