What is LASIK?

LASIK is a vision correction procedure to reduce or eliminate the use of eyeglasses. Refractive surgeons use excimer Lasers to reshape the Eye’s cornea to correct vision aberrations like near-sightedness, farsightedness, and Astigmatism. The procedure is times tested, used worldwide and generally safe. However, LASIK cannot be done on all age groups. There are several eligibility criteria for LASIK

Who is eligible for LASIK?

Adults having stable eye power for at least a year with healthy eyes can go for LASIK. Additionally following specific criteria have to be met for eligibility & best results.

These include:

  • Adults aged between 19 to 40
  • Eye power within the prescribed range that can be corrected with LASIK
  • One should not have any major eye diseases like Glaucoma or Cataracts
  • Controlled Blood sugar levels are a prerequisite for LASIK (diabetes free)
  • No other medical conditions, such as autoimmune diseases or consuming steroids

Once you meet this criterion, your eye surgeon will undertake a complete eye exam  & tests like corneal topography and biometry and take the final decision about your LASIK eligibility and method.

What happens during a LASIK surgery? 

LASIK, short form for Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis, is a Vision correction Laser Procedure to fix near-sightedness, farsightedness, and Astigmatism. A special laser is used to reshape the cornea’- the Eye’s outer transparent layer. This changes the light entry path into the Eye to focus on the retina correctly.

Step 1: Most of the time, the procedure starts with a mild sedative that numbs the Eye. The Surgeon will then use a blade-like tool called a microkeratome or a femtosecond laser to make a thin flap in the cornea. Next, the flap is folded to reveal the corneal tissue underneath.

Step 2: Next, the Surgeon will use an excimer laser to remove just the right amount of corneal tissue. The laser sends out pulses of ultraviolet light that turn tiny bits of tissue into vapor. This changes the shape of the cornea, which helps the patient see better.

Step 3: Once the laser reshaping is done, the flap is moved back into place and left there to heal. The whole process takes about 15 minutes for each Eye, and the patient can see better right away or within a day or two based on the LASIK technology used by the eye Surgeon.

Step 4: POST LASIK Recovery: Healing and getting better may take a few days to a few weeks, but most people can return to their everyday lives within a day or two.

What happens during a LASIK surgery

Types (techniques) of LASIK Eye surgery:

There are two main types of LASIK types One is Traditional ( Standard)  LASIK, and the second is custom LASIK.

Traditional LASIK, also known as Standard LASIK, uses a one-size-fits-all technique to modify the shape of the cornea. Custom LASIK, on the other hand, uses advanced technology to create a unique treatment plan ( data points) for each patient based on their eyes

Blade-free or all-laser LASIK, wavefront-guided LASIK, and topography-guided LASIK are some of the newer types of LASIK.

The most popular method of LASIK till recently was traditional LASIK, which is also the cheapest. However, its risk factor is high, and healing takes considerably longer than the newer types of LASIK.

In Traditional or standard LASIK, an eye surgeon uses a blade-like tool called a microkeratome to cut a flap on top of the cornea. The flap is then carefully lifted from its position, and a special laser is used to change the shape of the tissue underneath the lifted flap. This type of LASIK is suitable for people with low to moderate levels of near-sightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and Astigmatism. They cost less but may be painful and relatively slow in healing.

Customized  LASIK Technique

Custom LASIK also called wavefront-guided LASIK or wavefront-optimized LASIK uses cutting-edge technology to make a detailed map of the patient’s Eye. This data map is then used to render a treatment plan that is just right for the patient. This type of LASIK is more accurate than traditional LASIK and can fix higher levels of near-sightedness, farsightedness, Astigmatism, and other vision problems.

Blade-free or all-laser in LASIK

Here the flap in the cornea is made with a laser instead of a mechanical tool. This eliminates the risk of problems that come with using a microkeratome and is thought safer. Hence a twin Laser method is used first for Flap creation and second for corneal correction.

Topography-guided LASIK

Among the newer type of LASIK that uses advanced technology to make a detailed map of the patient’s cornea. This map is used to find and fix any irregularities in the shape of the cornea, which can cause blurred vision. This type of LASIK is suitable for people with keratoconus or an irregularly shaped cornea.

Which is the latest technology in LASIK LASER?

Objectively speaking, there is no single consensus on the best LASIK technology as of date. Several global brands and Ophthalmic tech solution companies claim to have developed the Latest LASIK technology with the best results. For your easy understating and quick reference, we have enlisted the leading LASIK technology currently used in different parts of the world.

Ziemer’s Femtosecond laser-assisted LASIK

This technology uses a femtosecond laser (a laser that emits extremely short pulses, on the order of quadrillionths of a second) to create a precise, computer-controlled corneal flap before the excimer laser is used to reshape the cornea. This allows even more precise and accurate correction of vision problems and can reduce the risk of complications. Because of its best safety profile, Femto-second AI-assisted LASIK is approved by the top health regulator of the world – the American FDA. Patients with Femto LASIK experience instant vision improvement.

Contoura Vision LASIK

 Contoura Vision LASIK technology uses Laser methods to create a  topographic image of the Eye’s surface using enhanced mapping technology. This map then guides a surgeon on how to reshape the cornea, the transparent outer layer of the human Eye, to resolve near-sightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism vision abnormalities. Contoura Vision LASIK comes with risks, just like any other surgery. But the procedure is generally considered safe and effective, and most patients see a significant improvement in their vision after it. Some of the risks of the system are dry eyes, glare, halos, and not enough or excessive correction.

SMILE LASIK Surgery

This is the abbreviated form for Small Incision Lenticule Extraction (SMILE). Smile is yet another recent addition to next-generation innovative and hi precision LASIK vision solutions; SMILE is a minimally invasive laser Flapless method. The curvature of your cornea is altered by SMILE surgery using surgically safe low-pulse lasers. This returns refraction to normal, restoring sharp vision. In addition, it reduces or eliminates the need for spectacles or contact lenses. . SMILE is still in its early stages even though results so far have been excellent. It was approved in 2016 for myopia correction and in 2018 for astigmatism correction. After Relax SMILE surgical procedure, one can conduct almost all routine life activities and work duties without corrective lenses. As a result, your vision will undoubtedly improve. SMILE is inspired by  Nobel Prize-winning physics technology and is considered a quantum leap in the refractive surgery ecosystem.

Alternatives Choices to LASIK LASER & IOL Implants

because of the thin cornea, eye topography, vision stability, and age, not all people can opt for LASIK LASER. Does it mean disappointment to those who want to get rid of eyeglasses? The answer is a big NO. we have several methods available to help you live without your spectacles or contact lenses or reduce your dependence on eyeglasses. Here are some of the most preferred LASIK alternative choices that we cover at our hospital.

Alternatives Choices to LASIK LASER & IOL Implants

Phakic IOL implants

An eye surgeon implants an interocular lens IOL if your Eye’s natural lens no longer performs your vision requirements as per your needs. In phakic, a new artificial IOL lens is implanted into a cataract patient’s Eye without removing the Eye’s natural lens. Hence a lens on Lens configuration where the natural lens gives way to an artificial IOL lens to help the patient see well. The Phakic IOL gives clear vision at all distances, from close up to far away, without needing glasses or contacts. This lens is made of a unique material that allows the Eye’s natural way of focusing work. This helps make seeing more natural and comfortable. The Phakic IOL is a high-end option for cataract surgery. It is usually advised for individuals who need a lot of flexibility and clear vision.

RLE: Refractive Lens Exchange

Refractive Lens Exchange RLE is a few minutes of surgical procedures to improve vision for people over 45 who are tired of their reading glasses and their eyesight getting worse. RLE is popularly called the Lifestyle Lens because it lets people get back to doing many things they like. Refractive errors like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and presbyopia can be fixed with RLE. It is similar to cataract surgery, but instead of taking out the cloudy lens, a clear artificial intraocular lens (IOL) is placed in the patient’s Eye to let the patient see better. Often, RLE is done on people who are not good candidates for LASIK or PRK surgery or who have a high degree of refractive error.

ICL stands for “Implantable Collamer Lens,”

As an alternative to LASIK, the ICL procedure corrects refractive eye errors such as near-sightedness     ( Myopia), farsightedness (Hyperopia), and Astigmatism. Unlike LASIK, ICL is reversible means that if you want, you can take out the artificial lens and put in a new one or let your natural Eye lens continue as before. On the flip side, though, its post-procedure recovery is slow and may take up to a few weeks. The ICL is a small, flexible lens inserted into the Eye through a small incision. It is positioned between the iris and the Eye’s natural lens and works by bending light to correct the refractive error. This type of surgery is an alternative to LASIK and PRK and does not require the removal of the cornea.

Photorefractive keratectomy PRK:

PRK Is yet another alternative for those unfit for LASIK and interested in getting rid of eyeglasses or reducing their use of spectacles. PRK is used to correct myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and Astigmatism. PRK has several variants like EpiLASEK and transepithelial PRK or even some people have started branding it as touchless LASIK

 

       PRK Advantages:

  • No risk of flap-related complications.
  • People with thin corneas or a history of eye injuries should consider this option.
  • Recovery time is usually less than that of LASIK.

      PRK’s disadvantages:

  • The initial recovery period may be slightly more painful than with LASIK.
  • With PRK, visual recovery is slower.
  • PRK patients are more likely to experience dry eyes.
  • A greater likelihood of haze following surgery

Note – your individual needs and the advice of your ophthalmologist will determine the best option for you after your clinical and diagnostic evaluation.

  • CONTOURA topography-guided LASIK uses modern mapping technologies to adapt each patient’s treatment plan. This method can fix even severe Astigmatism.
  • FEMTOSECOND LDV Z8 uses a femtosecond laser to create a thin corneal flap and reshape the cornea to correct visual impairments. Patients choose FEMTO because the femtosecond laser is more exact and predictable than the standard blade LASIK. In addition, American FDA recommends it for its best safety profile.
  • Transepithelial PRK: Trans-epithelial PRK, also known as “surface ablation and Epi-LASEK, is an old LASIK method that corrects near-sightedness, farsightedness, and Astigmatism. However, in recent times LASERS have substituted the chemicals and are now being re-branded as ‘Touchless LASIK’. Trans-epithelial PRK removes the cornea’s epithelium while altering the underlying tissue, unlike standard PRK, which uses Chemical surface ablation.

Q: Can I do LASIK Eye surgery?

निकट दृष्टि दोष क्या होता है और इसका उपचार/ ईलाज कैसे किया जाता है ?

निकट दृष्टि दोष

मानव आँख दूर या निकट की वस्तुओं पर ध्यान केंद्रित कर सकती है। यह आमतौर पर आंख के लेंस की वक्रता द्वारा किया जाता है। यदि लेंस की वक्रता कम है, तो यह दूर की वस्तुओं पर ध्यान केंद्रित करेगा। लेकिन कभी-कभी दूर दृष्टि धुंधली होती है जबकि निकट दृष्टि स्पष्ट होती है। इस स्थिति को मायोपिया कहते हैं। मायोपिया को ही निकट दृष्टिदोष भी कहा जाता है।

दूसरे शब्दों में, मायोपिया एक आँख का दोष या आँख की सामान्य असामान्यता है जिसमें निकट दृष्टि स्पष्ट होती है जबकि दूर दृष्टि धुंधली होती है। इस स्थिति को आमतौर पर मायोपिया कहा जाता है।  यही निकट दृष्टि या अदूरदर्शिता या मायोपिया कहलाता है।

आँख का वह भाग, जो आँख को प्रतिबिम्ब बनाने में सहायता करता है, रेटिना कहलाता है। मायोपिया (निकट दृष्टि दोष) में, प्रकाश किरणें आंखों में बहुत जल्दी इकट्ठा हो जाती हैं और रेटिना तक पहुंचने से पहले केंद्रित हो जाती हैं, और इसलिए रेटिना पर कोई छवि नहीं बन सकती है।

आम तौर पर निकट दृष्टि दोष का मुख्य कारण हैं

  • आजकल गैजेट्स का बढ़ता चलन,
  • घर और ऑफिस की चारदीवारी में सिमटता जीवन,
  • शारीरिक गतिविधियों की कमी और जंक फूड का बढ़ता चलन
  • यह न केवल हमारे शारीरिक और मानसिक स्वास्थ्य को प्रभावित कर रहा है बल्कि हमारे आंखों के स्वास्थ्य को भी प्रभावित कर रहा है।

विश्व स्वास्थ्य संगठन के अनुसार, दुनिया भर में मायोपिया के मामले तेजी से बढ़ रहे हैं, आज दुनिया भर में 1.4 बिलियन लोगों को निकट दृष्टि दोष/ मायोपिया है, ऐसा अनुमान है कि यह आंकड़ा 2050 तक बढ़कर 5 बिलियन हो जाएगा। इनमें से लगभग 10 प्रतिशत लोगों को मायोपिया इतनी गंभीर होगी कि उन्हें अंधेपन का खतरा अधिक हो सकता है।

मायोपिया के प्रकार

मायोपिया के प्रकार

  1. सरल/ सिंपल मायोपिया

सिंपल मायोपिया में व्यक्ति की आँख वस्तुतः स्वस्थ होती है, उचित शक्तिशाली लेंस या चश्मे से दोष को आसानी से ठीक किया जा सकता है और आँख की दृष्टि की समस्या को ठीक किया जा सकता है।

  1. हाई मायोपिया

हाई मायोपिया, मायोपिया का चरम या उच्च रूप है। इसमें, यदि किसी व्यक्ति को कम उम्र में मायोपिया का निदान किया जाता है, तो बढ़ती उम्र के साथ यह हानि और भी बदतर हो जाती है। हाई मायोपिया मोतियाबिंद, ग्लूकोमा आदि सहित अतिरिक्त नेत्र विकारों के जोखिम को बढ़ाता है।

  1. पैथोलॉजिकल मायोपिया

पैथोलॉजिकल मायोपिया को अपक्षयी मायोपिया के रूप में भी जाना जाता है। इसे लेंस या चश्मे से ठीक नहीं किया जा सकता है। इस प्रकार के मायोपिया से अंधापन होने के चांसेज ज्यादा होते हैं।

निकट दृष्टि दोष / मायोपिया के कारण

निकट दृष्टि दोष /मायोपिया कई कारणों से होता है। इनमें से कुछ कारण निम्नलिखित हैं:-

वंशानुगत कारण – निकट दृष्टि दोष /मायोपिया आधे से अधिक समय में वंशानुगत होता है जिसका अर्थ है कि यह पीढ़ियों तक चला जाता है।

दूसरा कारण है, नेत्रगोलक का बढ़ाव या कॉर्निया का निर्माण- इसमें कॉर्निया की सामान्य वक्रता के उभार पर प्रकाश किरणें अपवर्तित हो जाती हैं। ऐसे में कॉर्निया से पहले तस्वीर बन जाती है। इसलिए धुंधली छवि है क्योंकि दूर की वस्तुओं की छवि उपयुक्त बिंदु पर दिखाई नहीं देती है।

तीसरा कारण, अनियंत्रित मधुमेह- रक्त शर्करा के स्तर में वृद्धि से निकट दृष्टि दोष /मायोपिया हो सकता है।

एक असामयिक मोतियाबिंद (कैटरैक्ट) भी निकट दृष्टि दोष /मायोपिया का कारण बन सकता है- मायोपिक शिफ्ट मोतियाबिंद के दृश्य लक्षण हैं। जब मोतियाबिंद समय पर ठीक नहीं होता है, तो यह आगे चलकर मायोपिया के विकास का कारण बन सकता है।

लेंस का आकार बहुत उत्तल हो जाता है- यदि लेंस का आकार बहुत अधिक उत्तल हो जाता है, तो निकट दृष्टि दोष या मायोपिया उत्पन्न हो सकता है।

नेत्रगोलक के विभाग में वृद्धि भी इसका एक कारण हो सकती है – जब नेत्रगोलक की लंबाई आंख और कॉर्निया के लेंस की फोकस करने की शक्ति की तुलना में बहुत लंबी होती है। तो प्रकाश किरणें रेटिना के सामने एक बिंदु पर केंद्रित होती हैं न कि रेटिना पर ही, इस वजह से भी निकट दृष्टि दोष या मायोपिया हो सकता है।

निकट दृष्टि दोष /मायोपिया के लक्षण

निकट दृष्टि दोष
cradit to :asiapacificeyecentre

निकट दृष्टिदोष/मायोपिया के कई लक्षण होते हैं। उनमें से कुछ इस प्रकार हैं:-

  • यदि किसी व्यक्ति को मायोपिया है, तो वह दूर के संकेत (जैसे सड़क के संकेत) स्पष्ट रूप से नहीं देख पाएंगे। हालांकि, वे आस-पास की वस्तुओं को देख पाएंगे।
  • गाड़ी चलाते समय या खेल खेलते समय थकान महसूस होना भी मायोपिया का एक लक्षण है।
  • जब किसी व्यक्ति को दूर की वस्तुओं को देखने में सक्षम होने के लिए अपनी पलकों को झुकना या आंशिक रूप से बंद करना पड़ता है, तो यह भी मायोपिया का संकेत है।
  • सिरदर्द निकट दृष्टिदोष/मायोपिया के सामान्य लक्षणों में से एक है।
  • निकट दृष्टिदोष/मायोपिया आंखों में खिंचाव का कारण बनता है।
  • पलकों को सिकुड़कर देखना।
  • आंखों से पानी आना।

इनके अलावा, बच्चों में निम्न लक्षण भी दिखाई दे सकते हैं, जैसे कि :–

  • क्लासरूम में ब्लैक बोर्ड या व्हाइट बोर्ड से ठीक प्रकार से दिखाई न देना।
  • लगातार आंखें मसलना।
  • पढ़ाई पर फोकस न कर पाना।

निकट दृष्टि दोष /मायोपिया की रोकथाम कैसे करें ?

निकट दृष्टिदोष/निकटदृष्टिता को रोकना संभव नहीं है, लेकिन इसकी प्रगति को धीमा करने के लिए आप कुछ कदम उठा सकते हैं।

तो आप अपनी आंखों और दृष्टि की सुरक्षा एवं निकट दृष्टि दोष /मायोपिया को कम करने के लिए निम्नलिखित कदम/ स्टेप्स उठा सकते हैं:-

  • नियमित अंतराल पर अपनी आंखों की जांच कराएं।
  • यदि आपको डायबिटीज़ /मधुमेह और हाई ब्लड प्रेसर है तो आप अपना इलाज तुरंत कराएं, क्योंकि ये आपकी दृष्टि को प्रभावित कर सकते हैं।
  • जब भी आप घर से बाहर निकलें तो धूप का चश्मा पहनें। इससे आपकी आंखों को सूरज की अल्ट्रा-वायलेट किरणों के हानिकारक प्रभाव से बचाव होगा।
  • अपने आहार चार्ट में मौसम के हिसाब से फल और सब्जियां और मछली शामिल करें।
  • पढ़ाई और कंप्यूटर पर काम करते समय छोटे-छोटे ब्रेक लें तथा कम रोशनी में लिख्ने – न करें बल्कि अच्छी रोशनी में पढ़ें।
  • धूम्रपान मत करें,  धूम्रपान आपकी आंखों के स्वास्थ्य को भी प्रभावित करता है।
  • बच्चों को कमरे की चहारदीवारी में बंद न रखें बल्कि उन्हें बाहर धूप में खेलने का मौका भी दें।
  • निकट दृष्टि दोष /मायोपिया से बचने एवं उसे काम करने के लिए कंप्यूटर / मोबाइल स्क्रीन के सामने कम समय बिताएं।
  • इसके अलावा बच्चों को  दो घंटे से ज्यादा टीवी और मोबाइल का इस्तेमाल न करने दें।
  • पढ़ाई के समय किताबों और आंखों के बीच उचित दूरी बनाए रखें।

निकट दृष्टि दोष / मायोपिया का उपचार 

निकट दृष्टि दोष / मायोपिया के उपचार का लक्ष्य निकट दृष्टि दोष में सुधार करना है। इसके लिए सर्जिकल और नॉन सर्जिकल दोनों तरह के उपचार उपलब्ध हैं।

नान-सर्जिकल / गैर शल्य चिकित्सा उपचार

निकट दृष्टि दोष /मायोपिया के गैर-सर्जिकल उपचार के लिए नकारात्मक (निगेटिव) संख्या वाले चश्मे या कॉन्टैक्ट लेंस के उपयोग की आवश्यकता होती है। चश्मे या कॉन्टैक्ट लेंस का नंबर जितनी अधिक होगा, आपका मायोपिया उतना ही गंभीर होगा।

निकट दृष्टि दोष में लेंस

यह निकट दृष्टि दोष / मायोपिया के दोष को कम करने में सहायक होता है। चश्मा दृष्टि को साफ और तेज करने का एक सामान्य और सुरक्षित तरीका है। इनमें विभिन्न प्रकार के चश्मों के लेंस का उपयोग किया जाता है।

निकट दृष्टि दोष में कौन सा लेंस लगता है

ये लेंस सीधे आंखों पर लगाए जाते हैं। वे विभिन्न प्रकार की सामग्रियों से बने होते हैं और विभिन्न प्रकार के डिज़ाइनों में आते हैं।

सर्जिकल उपचार

रिफ्रेक्टिव सर्जरी

निकट दृष्टि दोष /मायोपिया रिफ्रेक्टिव इरर कहलाती है एवं इसे दूर करने के लिए की जाने वाली सर्जरी को रिफ्रेक्टिव सर्जरी कहा जाता है। रिफ्रेक्टिव सर्जरी चश्मे और कॉन्टैक्ट लेंस पर निर्भरता को कम करती है।

रिफ्रेक्टिव सर्जरी में नेत्र सर्जन कॉर्निया को फिर से आकार देने के लिए लेजर बीम का उपयोग करता है। इससे निकट दृष्टि दोष /मायोपिया में काफी हद तक सुधार होता है। बहुत से लोगों को सर्जरी के बाद चश्मे या कॉन्टैक्ट लेंस की आवश्यकता नहीं होती है, जबकि किसी किसी को अभी भी उनकी आवश्यकता हो सकती है। जब तक आपका लेंस नंबर स्थिर नहीं हो जाता, तब तक रिफ्रेक्टिव सर्जरी की रेकमेंडेशन नहीं दी जाती है।

लेसिक और फोटो-रिफ्रेक्टिव केरैटेक्टोमी (पीआरके) दोनों ही सबसे आम/ नार्मल रिफ्रेक्टिव सर्जरियां हैं। लेसिक और फोटो-रिफ्रेक्टिव केरैटेक्टोमी (पीआरके) दोनों में ही कार्निया का आकार बदला जाता है ताकि प्रकाश बेहतर तरीके से रेटिना पर केंद्रित हो सके, जिससे कि निकट दृष्टि दोष / मायोपिया को ठीक किया जा सके।

निष्कर्ष – निकट दृष्टि दोष

जैसा कि हमें पता है कि आँखे अनमोल हैं। अतः इनसे संबंधित समस्याओं को आप अनदेखा न करें। अगर आपको या आपके परिवार के किसी सदस्य को मायोपिया है तो डॉक्टर को दिखाने में बिल्कुल देरी न करें। अगर किसी की आँखे कमजोर होने के साथ ही चश्मे का नम्बर तेजी से बढ़ रहा हो तो बिलकुल भी देर नहीं करनी चाहिए  और व्यक्ति को तुरन्त ही आँखों के विशेषज्ञ की सलाह लेनी चाहिए।चश्में, कांटेक्ट लेंसों और सर्जरी के बारे में अधिक जानकारी के लिए आप डॉ. कशिश गुप्ता जो कि  एक जाने माने नेत्र विषेशज्ञ (आई सर्जन) हैं  से कंसल्ट कर सकते हैं जो कि आपको सही तरीके से समझायेंगे कि आँखों की किसी भी बीमारी का सही उपचार कैसे करवाएं। तो ज्यादा देर न करते हुए आज ही यहाँ संपर्क करें।

How long does seasonal eye allergy last?

Seasonal eye allergies, also known as allergic conjunctivitis, can last from a couple of days to several weeks, given the severity of the allergy and the person. The symptoms of seasonal eye allergies can also vary in severity from person to person. For example, some people may only experience mild symptoms, such as itchy eyes, while others may have more severe symptoms, such as red, swollen eyes and excessive tearing.

The duration of seasonal eye allergies also depends on the specific allergen causing the reaction. For example, seasonal allergies caused by tree pollen may last for several weeks during the spring, while seasonal allergies caused by grass pollen may last for several weeks during the summer.

Overall, the length of time that seasonal eye allergies last can vary depending on the person and the specific allergen.

Be patient, and don’t be afraid to try other treatments or ask your eye doctor for guidance. Finding the right treatment plan for you can help alleviate the symptoms of your seasonal eye allergies and allow you to enjoy the beauty of all seasons of the year.

Cataract reduces your vision ability as the Eye’s natural lens becomes cloudy. Minor surgery is the only method to remove your Cataract. Such a procedure substitutes your Cloudy lens with a replacement lens so that you can see normal again. 

There is no alternative to surgery. If you do not have the surgery, your vision will gradually decrease and may continue to get worse to the point of no recovery.

Such a lens requires your brain to get used to focusing & it may take some time to adjust to a multifocal IOL. Such visual adjustment is relatively easy if IOL is placed in both eyes

  1. PREMIUM ACCOMMODATING IOL

As a superior and comfortable option, the accommodating lens is designed to work seamlessly with the eye muscles and allows the lens to move, accommodate, and focus on objects at all distances –  including Near, Far, and in-between.
