Shroff Eye Hospital is India's First Eye Hospital accredited by the Joint Commission International (USA) since 2006. Shroff Eye is also India's first and only Wavelight Concerto 500 Hz LASIK center. Shroff Eye has stood for excellence in eye care since 1919. A firm commitment to quality is at the heart of all services provided at our centers at Bandra(W) and Marine Drive, Mumbai.
This is a Wavefront guided ‘No- flap’ or ‘No Cut’ or ‘Blade free’ LASIK
EpiLASIK is indicated for patients who are found to be unfit for LASIK or have special requirements.
These include those:
- With thin cornea
- With a diagnosis of dry eye
- Choosing careers like Aviation, Cabin Crew, Navy, Army etc where LASIK is disallowed
- Who fear the creation of the LASIK ‘flap’
Epi-LASIK is a safe, effective and permanent procedure, performed using the same excimer laser used for LASIK, however differing from LASIK in only the first few steps, as no ‘flap’ is created in this procedure.
Recovery when compared to LASIK
The visual recovery (time for return to work), perhaps 3-4 days, is not as rapid as LASIK (1-2 days).
Discomfort can last for 24 to 36 hours compared to 6 hours for LASIK.
After a complete eye examination, we will determine if Epi-LASIK is the best option for you. If you are a good candidate, you will be given additional information about the procedure that will allow you to make an informed decision about whether to proceed.
We would also like to know the following information to help us understand the type of treatment applicable for you:-
- Current Refraction (spectacle numbers)
- Lifestyle – outdoor, computers etc / profession
- Any significant medical or eye history
- An eye report / tests done
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. You can email us any queries or fill the contact us form.
