Bladeless LASIK / Femto LASIK
The Bladeless LASIK option utilizes a PRECISE, HIGH-ENERGY
femtosecond laser instead of a microkeratome to create the flap of corneal tissue. The femtosecond laser we use is the ZEISS VisuMax, which is one of the most advanced recent lasers today. America's National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) approves pilots and astronauts who have undergone Femto or Bladeless LASIK.
Since the VisuMax Femtosecond laser is able to create precise corneal flaps, some patients who were previously not a candidate for LASIK due to thin corneas, are now benefiting from the procedure.
Is Bladeless LASIK safe?
This procedure makes Laser eye surgery safer than ever by replacing the blade commonly used for corneal flap creation with a laser, a more precise process.
How does bladeless LASIK visual outcome compare with those of traditional LASIK?
- Creates fewer high-and-low-order aberrations, thought to be associated with glare and halos at night.
- Patients have a reduced incidence of post-operative dry eye symptoms.
- Patients require fewer enhancement procedures following LASIK.
- The precision of the bladeless LASIK flap significantly reduces the incidence of post-operative induced astigmatism, as compared with a traditional LASIK flap.
How many Femto bladeless laser eye surgeries are done till date by Dr. Anand Shroff?
We have been doing Femto bladeless laser eye procedures since early 2013
and we do about a minimum 20 laser eye treatments
per week. This number is only increasing as more and more people are getting aware of this safe technology.
Is there any age limit for Femto bladeless LASIK treatment?
It can be done above 18 yrs and if the patient has stable spectacle number for past 2 years. Also, preferably under age 40 years.
Is it a permanent treatment?
Yes. This is a permanent treatment.
What is the cost of Femto Bladeless laser eye surgery?
Cost of laser eye procedure will vary from centre to centre, and this is determined by what technology and expertise of the surgeon they offer you.
We would like to know the following information to help us understand the type of treatment applicable for you by filling and submitting the above form and accordingly cost or fees applicable will be shared with you.
2.Current Refraction (spectacle numbers)
3.Lifestyle - outdoor, computers etc / profession
4.Any significant medical or eye history
5.An eye report / tests done: - please scan and email the same
This will enable us to know the eligibility for the procedure, before visiting us, although the final check with our Refractive surgeon, Dr Anand Shroff will determine all of these as well.
