With the collective efforts of Dr Devinderjit Singh Brar & Dr Sudeep Brar, BRAR EYE CENTRE has been successful in presenting 100% success rates among the patients.

So in this blog post, we shall be knowing a little more about LASIK Surgery:

WHAT EXACTLY IS DONE IN THE LASIK SURGERY?

LASIK Surgery is the same as the other procedures as it is also supposed to reshape the cornea (front surface of the eye). With this procedure, it becomes quintessentially easy to make the eye directly docs on the retina without the need to eat either the contact lenses or the glasses.

HOW MUCH TIME IS TAKEN TO COMPLETE THE LASIK PROCEDURE?

You will be glad to know that the Lasik procedure is a pain-free kind of procedure that is performed by administering the patient with either general or local anaesthesia. It does not take more than 15 to 20 minutes for the overall procedure to get completed. The best thing which you will come across after undergoing this procedure will be as underlined:

You can immediately improve your vision and it can get stabilised in 24 hours.

WHAT IS THE MECHANISM TO PERFORM THE LASIK PROCEDURE?

  • CREATION OF FLAP IN CORNEA

With the help of the microkeratome which is a surgical tool, extremely thin and circular flaps will be created in the cornea. The surgeon will then consider folding the flap so that the stroma could be accessed.

  • RESHAPING OF THE CORNEA

With the help of the excimer laser, the cornea will be reshaped. To make the cornea reshaped, the microscopic amounts of the tissue will be removed with the help of the aforementioned laser. With this, the vision can be thoroughly improved.

Then the corneal flap will be laid back in the correct place.

Do you know?

There is a hilarious myth about LASIK Surgery according to which the LASIK surgery involves the stitches while it doesn’t. It is a completely stitchless surgery.

WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT FROM THE LASIK PROCEDURE?

BEFORE SURGICAL PROCEDURE

  • ELIGIBILITY

Not everyone can undergo Lasik surgery. For undergoing such surgery, you need to be eligible and should match all the credentials of the eligibility criteria.

  • NO LENSES

Before the two weeks of the LASIK surgery, you are supposed to stop wearing the contact lenses.

Do you know?

Wearing contact lenses is accountable for disturbing the natural shape of the eye.

  • EYE NUMBING

Before the surgery commences, the doctor will put several numbing drops in your eye to make sure that you are not suffering from any of the discomforts.

AFTER THE PROCEDURE

  • IMMEDIATE DISCOMFORT

Immediately after the procedure, you may experience temporary discomfort in the form of inflammation and itching.

  • DO NOT DRIVE TO HOME

You are supposed to have at least one attendant who will help you to get driven home.

  • BLURRY & HAZY VISION

You can expect the Blurry and the Hazy vision immediately after the surgery.

  • REST FOR SOME DAYS

You may, no doubt, be able to go back to work the following day. But the doctor will still suggest that you take a couple of days off from your work.

BOTTOM LINE

If you want to get consulted with the best doctors of the BRAR EYE CENTRE, then book your consultation at the earliest.
