LASIK or Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis is the most modern technique used to get rid of glasses and contact lenses. The surfaces of our corneas are more or less like the surface of the earth where we have irregular contours in the form of hills and valleys. LASIK is the most advanced and offers highly precise treatment, it is possible to smoothen out these irregularities, and make the surface of the cornea perfect thus achieving crystal clear vision.
LASIK is a type of refractive surgery using laser beams to treat vision-related problems caused by refractive errors. For perfect vision, light must travel through the cornea and lens, the cornea and lens refract the light on the retina which is then turned into signals to reach the brain and converted to images. People having refractive errors will have blurry vision because the light is not focused properly on the retina because the shape of the cornea or lens keeps the light from refracting properly. LASIK is used to treat myopia or near-sightedness, hyperopia or farsightedness, and astigmatism.
This is one treatment that has gained a lot of attention and popularity over the years, especially among individuals using glasses and contact lenses. LASIK is a safe and effective treatment to get rid of your glasses and lenses forever and live freely like everyone else. Dr Rani Menon’s Eye Clinic offers the best quality, advanced and fastest LASIK system (EX 500) in all of Mid Kerala. We do not compromise on vision quality and maintain the natural shape of the cornea, thereby increasing the quality of vision besides correcting refractive error.
Anyone aged 18 to 40 with the following conditions can undergo LASIK Surgery:
LASIK can be used to treat short sight and astigmatism and is most suitable for people between the age of 18-40 years. Myopia or short sight requires glasses to see the far vision but with LASIK it can be successfully treated and clear vision can be achieved. Astigmatism is a condition wherein the vision is always out of focus, even with glasses. With the help of LASIK, astigmatism can be successfully treated and perfect vision can be regained.
