LASIK Eye Surgery cost in India

LASIK may be a safe, successful procedure that corrects vision for a minimum of several years. LASIK Surgery costs range between $1,000 to $2,000 per eye and aren't covered by insurance because the procedure is deemed cosmetic or elective.


LASIK is a laser eye surgery vision in people with Nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), astigmatism, and presbyopia. It is a laser vision correction surgery. It improves vision and reduces the individual necessity to wear contact lenses and glasses.

  • In nearsightedness (myopia) objects/things that appear close to you can be seen properly, but they are blurry when they are farther. Rays of light happen to appear in front of the retina.
  • In farsightedness (hyperopia), objects/things that are far away can be seen properly, but they are blurry when they are closer. Rays of light focus on the behind of the retina.
  • In astigmatism, your vision can become blurry with time because of the improper shape of your eyes. Light rays enter the eyeballs and focus on many areas other than just the retina.
  • In presbyopia, an individual is dependent on reading glasses as the eyes lose their lens' flexibility because of weakened muscles. It is a very common problem of vision in old age people.

The LASIK surgery or procedure reshapes the front part of your eye i.e, cornea so that light rays focus on the retina which is on the backside of the cornea.

  1. Blurry vision ( up close and far away)
  2. Headache due to strain in the eyes.
  3. Squinting or partially closing the eyelids for clear vision.

Lasik Surgery Type

Several types of laser beam surgical processes are practiced in our country. Each one has its pros and cons. Doctors will recommend you the best for your eyes. Your medical condition is also important to make the final decision.

The Lasik Surgery types include:

LASIK Surgery

It implies Laser-Assisted Sub-Epithelial Keratomileusis. Under the process, the corneal epithelium is segregated from the stromal layer. The thin flap of the epithelium is pushed to one side of the cornea. The flap remains attached to the eye.

PRK

It stands for the Photo Refractive Keratectomy. Medical science recommends the process as the original laser eye surgery technique. Though the process has become obsolete after the arrival of Lasik Surgery, the blade-free technique has become popular. The process has the highest success rate in curing myopia.

ASA

It means Advanced Surface Ablation. The technique resembles PRK. Doctors use the Zeiss excimer laser Advanced Surface Ablation program for the reshaping purpose. The process got approval in 1995.
