Lasik Eye Surgery (लेजर सर्जरी क्या है) by Dr. Rajeev Mirchia | Specs Removal Surgery 

In this video, SimpliHealth expert, Dr.Rajeev Mirchia, an eye specialist at Mirchai’s Laser Eye clinic, Chandigarh is talking about Lasik eye surgery (लेजर सर्जरी), which is also called specs removal surgery

He also discusses the procedure to remove power glasses: SMILE and Lasik eye surgery. 

Lasik Procedure: Results, Precautions, and Complications 

First, we will talk about the Lasik procedure, which people commonly know. Then, I will discuss the representation, consequences, results, precautions, and Lasik surgery complications.

Procedure 

The Lasik eye procedure takes only 5 -7 minutes. This procedure is effortless and safe; we pick a layer of cornea out of total thickness. We use the laser on the cornea, which modifies the cornea’s curvature, resulting in the removal of the power of the lens. 

Precautions 

The only precaution is not to get the eyes dirty or put splashes of water in the treated eye for the initial 3-4 weeks. For the first day, we request you to have a full day’s rest, and the next day you can do everything. There are no mobile, computer, kitchen household work, or bathing restrictions. Only we need to avoid constant rubbing and contact with water. With this procedure from day one itself, the vision becomes apparent even after one-hour post-operation. And most of the time, the picture is clear. 

Who needs LASIK?

Children might not require any lens power for a lifetime after Lasik surgery. However, after the age of 40, few may feel the need for reading glasses. 

SMILE surgery 

The second procedure is SMILE, where we don’t make an incision in the flap of the cornea by laser. Also, the laser we use is of supreme quality. It sculpts a tiny, computerized disk-shaped structure inside the cornea according to the power of the lens with the help of automated machines and prepares a little mark through which we remove this small disk, resulting in a flat cornea. 

Advantages of SMILE surgery 

SMILE led to an end to the need to wear power glasses. The main advantage of this procedure is that since we don’t make any incision to any flap, there is no risk of rubbing the eyes. Secondly, after removing power glasses, we can do anything from day one itself. However, we request that the patient not put water splashes inside the eye for 4-5 days post-operation. After that, healing is best and very quick, and from the very day of surgery, we can do our routine work. In this procedure, we don’t make an incision to a nerve or blood vessel, so the chance of dryness is significantly less. 

SMILE is one of the latest technologies, absolutely without incision, blade, or flap.

Thank you
