|Laser eye surgery, or laser vision correction, involves the use of a laser to change the shape of the surface of the eye (called the cornea). By altering the shape of the cornea, laser eye surgery can remove any focusing error, just like wearing a pair of glasses or contact lenses does.
The difference is that laser eye surgery is a permanent solution, so you can live life to the full again, and enjoy clear vision without the hassle and restrictions of wearing glasses or contacts.
|What are the different types of laser eye surgery?
|There are two main types of laser eye surgery:
- Custom Surface (also called PRK)
A single laser is applied directly to the surface of the cornea to correct your vision. This is the classic form of laser eye surgery, which is less common nowadays, but still useful for a small number of patients who may be unsuitable for LASIK because they have very thin cornea.
In a LASIK operation, a flap in the cornea is created, and the laser vision correction takes place deep within the cornea, rather than on the surface. LASIK is a more advanced form of laser eye surgery that can treat a broader range of vision imperfections, and offers many other benefits as well.
- I keep hearing about blade-free LASIK. What’s that?
In the early days of LASIK, the corneal flap was created using a blade called a microkeratome. Nowadays most of renowned eye clinics of the world , including Bansal Eye Hospital, has the facility of using another laser – called a femtosecond laser ( INTRALASE FS) – to create the corneal flap. The use of a second laser instead of a blade gives patients much clearer vision, particularly at night, and reduces complications, making laser eye surgery safer than ever.
At Bansal Eye Hospital you’ll benefit from the safety and precision of the most advanced femtosecond, or ‘flap creation’ laser in the world – the IntraLase iFS 5th Generation laser.

|How does iLASIK work?
|iLASIK combines the most advanced measurement technology in the world, and two of the world’s most advanced computer-guided LASIK lasers, into one safe and highly effective procedure.
Your personalised iLASIK procedure:
Step 1: Unique vision profile
First, we use the most advanced measurement technology in the world to painlessly measure your eyes. WaveScan technology creates a 3D map of each eye, detecting even the most minute imperfections, so that your iLASIK surgeon can custom-fit your treatment to your individual eyes.
Step 2: Personalised iLASIK flap
Next, the first of two lasers – called an IntraLase – is used to create a flap in your cornea (the surface of your eye), which is folded back to perform iLASIK. This blade-free method delivers outstanding results, with more patients achieving 20/20 vision or better, and better night vision as well.
Step 3: Custom laser vision correction
Finally, the Advanced CustomVue laser corrects your vision to the exact specifications of your unique vision profile. This laser offers the highest level of precision, and literally locks onto your eye, reacting automatically to the finest movements during surgery to provide a safe and accurate result.
Now that you know what’s involved in the iLASIK procedure, you should book your iLASIK assessment and find out if you are a good candidate for iLASIK.
