Mumbai LASIK center completes more than 500 Bladeless LASIK procedures

Mumbai LASIK center completes more than 2000 Bladeless LASIK procedures

In a little over 4 years, the Mumbai LASIK center has completed more than 2000 Bladeless LASIK and  SMILE procedures. This is very interesting, given that Bladeless LASIK and SMILE cost a lot more than standard LASIK and so is therefore less affordable to patients. This indicates the strong preference of patients from Mumbai to undergo these procedures, because of their enhanced safety and enhanced accuracy as the result of a all laser procedure.

Our Mumbai LASIK center is our oldest laser center, and is conveniently located in Juhu, close to Andheri Railway Station, and close to the Versova-Ghatkoper Metro Line. Under the leadership of our Clinical Director, Dr. Rupal Shah, and our Ophthalmic Consultants Dr. Parul Maniar and Dr. Dimple Shah, we provide the most advanced LASIK technology in Mumbai

Introducing Laser Cataract Surgery

New Vision Laser Centers-Centre for Sight is proud to introduce Bladeless Laser Cataract Surgery for the first time in the private sector in Vadodara. The Catalys Femtosecond Laser for Bladeless, Stitchless Laser Cataract Surgery has been installed in our beautiful new clinic in Vadodara for the first time in Gujarat.
Bladeless Laser Cataract Surgery has many advantages over conventional Stitchless Phaco Surgery. While many patients confuse Phaco Surgery with Laser Surgery, in fact there is no laser used with phaco surgery.  With the advanced laser for cataract surgery available now, patients can opt for “true” laser cataract surgery. It offers many advantages over conventional phaco surgery. It is entirely computerized, and offers predictable incisions and other surgical steps, not possible with a manual technique. The safety, precision and comfort of a Bladeless Laser Cataract Surgery has to be see to be believed.

Is “All Laser” LASIK the same as Bladefree LASIK?

Is “All Laser” LASIK the same as Bladefree LASIK?

Maybe. Contrary to popular belief, LASIK is not an “all-laser” procedure, due to the use of the microkeratome blade. Bladeless  is one of the few laser technologies available today for use in the first step of the LASIK procedure and only LASIK procedures that use the femtosecond laser can be considered “all-laser.”

Your doctor can explain the difference between other procedures that may be advertised as “all laser,” such as LASEK, PRK or epi-LASIK  or ASA– all of which are surface ablation procedures. Because they are performed without creating a corneal flap, these procedures generally require longer healing time and frequently involve more discomfort and a delay in visual recovery.

So don’t get fooled by terms like epilasik or bladeless laser. These are not the same as bladefree lasik.

Bladefree LASIK is offered at New Vision centers in Ahmedabad, Surat, Mumbai, Hyderabad, and Vadodara.

Why is Bladeless LASIK more expensive?

Is Bladeless LASIK more expensive than LASIK with Blade?

Yes. Most patients agree that the added level of safety and better vision offered by Bladeless LASIK is worth the incremental cost. New Vision Laser Centers are leaders in the field of refractive laser surgery inIndia, and we continually evaluate advances in technology. We have determined that Bladeless LASIK is the most sophisticated and accurate system available today for flap creation and have invested in the technology to sustain our superiority in patient care.

Why is Bladeless LASIK more expensive? Well, for starters, two lasers are required in the procedure- a femtosecond laser and an excimer laser. This makes the capital cost double. In addition, all femtosecond lasers, without exception, require the doctor or clinic to pay a “license fee or treatment fee” per eye to the laser manufacturer. This fee alone is sometimes worth the cost of LASIK with Blade. Third is the additional maintenance fee to be paid for two lasers instead of one.

Given all of these costs, Bladeless LASIK can sometimes cost double or triple the cost of LASIK with Blade.

However, in India, and especially at New Vision Laser Centers-Centre for Sight, we have made all efforts to keep the cost of Bladeless LASIK as low as possible. Bladeless LASIK at our centers in Mumbai, Surat, Ahmedabad, Vadodara or Hyderabad can cost about 1/4th the cost of the same procedure in Europe or America, and half of what it costs in Thailand or Malaysia.

How do the visual outcomes of femtosecond LASIK compare to traditional LASIK with a blade?

Visual Outcomes of Femtosecond LASIK

Clinical studies confirm that patients achieve better vision with femtosecond LASIK. Data shows:

  • More patients achieve 20/20 or better vision with Bladeless LASIK.
  • Patients stating a preference preferred the post-operative vision of their femtosecond-treated eye 3-to-1 over their blade-treated eye.
  • Bladeless LASIK creates fewer high- and low-order aberrations, associated with night glare and halos.
  • Patients treated with Bladeless LASIK have a reduced incidence of post-operative dry eye symptoms.
  • Bladeless patients required fewer enhancement procedures following LASIK.
  • The precision of the femtosecond flap significantly reduces the incidence of post-operative induced astigmatism as compared to a microkeratome-created flap.

The best technology for bladeless lasik is deployed in New Vision Laser Centers-Centre for Sight, at our lasik centers in Surat, Ahmedabad, Mumbai, Hyderabad and Vadodara.

Is LASIK Laser Eye Surgery, as opposed to Bladeless LASIK, unsafe?

No. While LASIK laser eye surgery is a successful and relatively safe procedure, Bladeless LASIK makes it safer by virtually eliminating the severe, sight-threatening complications of the microkeratome. Bladeless LASIK  is not only 100 times more accurate, but it also provides patients with superior visual outcomes. Pls. see  bladeless lasik advantages. These facts are giving thousands of patients each month the confidence to proceed with laser vision correction.

We offer LASIK Laser Eye Surgery at many locations in India. We offer Bladeless LASIK at Mumbai, Vadodara, Ahmedabad, Surat and Hyderabad

Is Bladeless LASIK the same as the Customized/personalized procedure?

No. Custom LASIK, also known variously as CustomVue, C-LASIK and Zyoptix generally refers to individualized visual diagnosis with technology called “wavefront,” which allows for customized, personalized treatment with the excimer laser. However,at New Vision Laser Centers, we often combine Custom treatments and Bladeless LASIK to give the most advanced procedure available.

Bladeless LASIK and an even more advanced procedure, ReLEx smile are available at our centers at Vadodara, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Surat and Ahmedabad.
