What is "Blade-Free" LASIK?

Traditional LASIK involves cutting a flap in the cornea using a physical razor-thin blade called a microkeratome. Advances in medicine and technology now allow for the use of a laser to do this cutting, allowing for much greater safety and precision.

Who is at risk for a cataract?

The risk of cataract increases as you get older. Other risk factors for cataract include:
* Diabetes
* Hypertension
* Smoking or significant alcohol consumption.
* Prolonged exposure to ultraviolet radiation from sunlight and other sources
* Prolonged use of corticosteroid medications

What is a Cataract?

A cataract is the clouding of the eye’s natural lens usually because of age. The lens is mostly made of water and protein. The protein is arranged in a precise way that keeps the lens clear and allows light to pass through it. As we age, the lens clouds in everyone, making it harder to see. The cloudy lens (cataract) is then replaced surgically with the appropriate new intraocular lens to provide clear vision.

What are the symptoms of a cataract?

The most common symptoms of a cataract are:
* Cloudy or blurry vision.
* Colors may look faded.
* Glare or halo around lights. Headlights, lamps, or sunlight may appear too bright.
* Poor night vision.
* Double vision or multiple images in one eye.
* Frequent prescription changes in your eyeglasses or contact lenses.

Once you have Laser Vision Correction, will your vision change or regress?

In a very small percentage of patients (about 1-2%) a little bit of regression can occur during or after the healing process. Though infrequent, our surgeons may recommend an enhancement to improve your primary vision correction treatment. Most patients will have excellent vision with just one treatment. A small percentage will have to come back to have the enhancement procedure. The Punjab Lasik Laser Centre is committed to providing you with your best possible vision.

Is Laser Vision Correction painful?

Laser vision correction is not painful at all. Anesthetic eye drops are used to numb the eye and prevent pain. During the procedure most people feel very little other than pressure for a few seconds. LASIK allow for a very predictable healing response. Vision stabilizes rapidly, and patients can expect to have little or no discomfort following the procedure. After PRK, some patients may experience mild to moderate irritation until the corneal surface heals (4-5 days). Eye drops and pills are provided to minimize any discomfort.


It is very likely that you will achieve partial or complete independence from glasses and/or contact lenses after LASIK surgery. However, if you are young, it is also likely that you will later develop presbyopia (age-related visual deterioration) in your 40s and 50s and will need to return to wearing glasses for reading.


Custom LASIK involves taking precise measurements of your eye’s unique imperfections, and then tailoring laser treatment to your needs. Custom LASIK involves the use of wavefront technology to record this information and guide the laser that reshapes the cornea. The procedure also uses advanced tracking technology to ensure optimal precision during treatment.

How long does the LASIK procedure take?

The procedure itself takes about five minutes per eye, with the actual laser treatment time lasting less than 20 seconds per eye. Patients are usually in the surgery suite for no more than 10 minutes and at the center for no longer than an hour and a half.

What if I blink during the laser treatment?

A small device is used to keep your eyelids open during the procedure and prevent blinking. You will not be able to blink and affect the outcome of the procedure.

What precautions do I have to take after surgery?

You will be given plastic shields to wear over your eyes immediately after surgery and for five nights following surgery to protect your eyes while sleeping. For the first month, care should be taken to not rub your eyes for any reason and patients should avoid getting sweat, dust or smoke in their eyes. It is also better to avoid swimming for two weeks, but with care, there is usually no problem with showers.

How is PRK different from LASIK

The actual reshaping of the cornea for vision correction is the same with PRK and LASIK. The difference with PRK is how the cornea is prepared for the procedure. Rather than a laser being used to prepare the cornea, the corneal tissue is gently wiped from the cornea. Following the PRK procedure, a soft contact lens is placed on the eye to act as a bandage. This allows patients to see and function while the corneal tissue regenerates and heals beneath the lens, within a few days.

How soon after LASIK will I see well?

Most patients have immediately improved vision following the procedure. Naturally, there will be some blurriness of vision, but more patients see clearly within 24 hours and return to work the next day.

Am I awake during the procedure?

Yes. All you need to do is relax and focus on the green light. Our Nidek excimer laser will track and compensate for any eye movements during the surgery. Our Doctors will talk to you throughout the procedure so that you know what to expect. You may elect to take a mild, oral sedative before surgery to help you relax.
