Your path to visual freedom.

LASIK is a refractive procedure, carried out to correct vision. For millions of people,freedom from contact lenses and glasses has been possible because of laser eye surgery. LASIK is a painless procedure, where the cornea is reshaped to improve the way in which rays of light are focused by the eye.

Like any other refractive surgery, the primary goal of LASIK is to reduce your dependence on visual aids. So no matter what you want to do, plan a vacation, watch a 3D movie, play sports or simply work, you can now do so, with ease, after LASIK surgery.

At Banaji Eyecare, under the care of Dr. Burjor Banaji, its Medical Director, newer, safer and more advanced LASIK procedures are used to get you the results that you want. Dr. Banaji is not only the first surgeon to perform LASIK in India but he is also the first Asian surgeon to hold instruction courses in LASIK at the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery.

  • What is the Excimer Laser?

    The excimer laser is an ultraviolet laser working at the wavelength of 193 nanometers. It is a phenomenally accurate cutting tool with sub-micron precision. Each pulse of the laser removes ¼ of 1 micron of tissue (1 micron = 1 millionth of a millimeter). The excimer laser gently reshapes the cornea bringing rays of light to focus on the retina.

  • At what age can I get LASIK done?

    Generally, LASIK is performed on candidates who are over 18 years old and have healthy corneas. Also one must have not had a significant increase in their spectacle prescription in the last 12 months. We recommend that you wait till you’re 18 years old and consult a surgeon.

  • What should I expect from LASIK?

    The primary goal of refractive surgery is not to give you perfect vision, but to reduce your dependence on visual aids. So after, LASIK, you can expect your dependence on contact lenses and glasses to decrease.

  • Can LASIK cure reading glasses too?

    On the 16th of September 1996,Dr. Banaji and Dr. Knorz of Germany performed the world’s first Bifocal LASIK surgery. Unfortunately, the results did not reach the high standards they expected.

    However, a method known as monovision or laser blended vision whereby one eye is left slightly myopic and the other corrected for distance, allows people to perform most functions including reading and long distance viewing with great success.

  • Will I have perfect vision after surgery? Will I still need my glasses?

    Every patient’s vision improves after LASIK, though to differing degrees depending upon the initial spectacle or contact lens correction. Overall, 95% of patients achieve 6/12 vision, which means they can drive legally, play sport and join the services without glasses.

    Don’t be misled by various excimer advertisements proposing that you would be able to throw away your glasses. Patients with high initial correction may require reading glasses or a thin pair of glasses for activities such as night driving. We urge you to look at LASIK not as a route to perfect eyesight, but as a procedure that reduces your dependence on glasses or contact lenses.

  • What are the long term effects of the LASIK procedure?

    Since the early 1980s, excimer laser procedure has been practiced in many countries worldwide. It has also formed the basis of many clinical studies, conducted to study the long term effects of this procedure. All of these studies have come up with the same conclusion – that there are no long-term effects of excimer laser on the integrity of the eye.

  • Can I go blind?

    Since 2000, LASIK is the most frequently performed surgery in the entire field of medicine, having been performed on over one million patients. Not one of these operations has ever resulted in a case of blindness.

  • Is the procedure painful?

    No, it is not. Post-operatively, you may feel a slight grittiness in the eyes, which may last for a few hours. This is in direct contrast to the other laser procedure (PRK), which can be quite painful post-operatively.

  • When can I get back to work?

    Usually, you can be back at your desk, and perform your routine tasks, just 24 hours after the procedure. However, there are a few other activities that need to be carried out with some care:

  • Are there any side effects?

    Your vision may fluctuate for a few days after surgery. You may notice some glare around lights at night. Your vision in the evening will not be as sharp as your vision during the day. However, these are temporary and usually pass with time.

  • How long does the effect of LASIK last?

    The effect is permanent.

  • Are all laser procedures the same?

    There are two laser procedures used to correct refractive errors – PRK and LASIK. These procedures differ vastly. In PRK, the procedure is done through the surface of the cornea, while in LASIK surgery it is performed under the protection of a flap of corneal tissue, which has tremendous advantages in patient comfort, predictability and safety.
