Using a cold, high-precision laser beam, the excimer laser is precisely programmed to remove a microscopic layer of the cornea, altering its curvature, to correct your spectacle or contact lens prescription.

 

To put this into perspective, each laser pulse removes 0.25 microns of corneal tissue or 1/400 of a mm. Because of the laser's precision, damage to healthy, adjoining tissue is reduced or eliminated. Among its advantages are that visual recovery is rapid and it is virtually painless.

 

Conventional LASIK corrects lower order abberations or errors ( short & long sightedness and astigmatism) but can cause unwanted side effects such as reduced contrast sensitivity, increased higher order aberrations and reduce visual performance at night-time.

 

At 6/6 vision Professor Aggarwal performs  Custom Wavefront  LASIK. Wavefront-guided LASIK, using 3-dimensional measurements of the eye which permit a level of precision and personalisation, previously unattainable with traditional equipment. This not only induces fewer higher order aberrations but can also correct disorders that previously could not even be detected.  Professor Aggarwal uses a blade FREE technique called Intralase® also known as Femtolaser.

LASIK

'As of 2010, over 20 million people worldwide have undergone LASIK surgery, making it one of the most common surgeries performed today'

LASIK has enabled people, world wide, to go about their daily business, without the need for glasses or contact lenses

 

 

What is LASIK ?

 

 

LASIK (Laser Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis) is one of the most amazing technological breakthroughs in eye care in past decades.

 

Using a cold, high-precision laser beam, the excimer laser is precisely programmed to remove a microscopic layer of the cornea, altering its curvature, to correct your spectacle or contact lens prescription.
