How does the corneal flap affect visual outcomes?

How does the corneal flap affect visual outcomes?

A: New science reveals that the corneal flap has been widely underestimated for its affect on the visual outcome of LASIK. If the corneal surface is left with fine aberrations after the cut with the handheld blade, the precision of the excimer tissue ablation, the second step, can be compromised. Eliminating tiny irregularities on the corneal surface, as is possible with Bladeless LASIK, gives a boost to the vision after the procedure.

Surgeons have found statistically and clinically significant differences in the vision patients achieve when the femtosecond laser is used for corneal flap creation. Bladeless LASIK goes beyond simply creating a safer, planar flap to preparing an optimal corneal architecture below the flap, providing for superior visual outcomes, even among patients who undergo wavefront guided procedures. The end result: fewer complications and better vision.

Bladeless LASIK is offered by NVLC-CFS at Mumbai, Hyderabad, Vadodara, Ahmedabad, and Surat.

 

What is Bladeless LASIK?

What is Bladeless LASIK?

A: Bladeless LASIK uses the VisuMax laser to complete the first step of the LASIK procedure. It is an advancement to make LASIK an all-laser procedure.

Bladeless LASIK is noted for improving the safety and accuracy of LASIK by replacing oscillating microkeratome blade historically used in the first step. Today, Bladeless LASIK is the technology of choice amongst leading LASIK surgeons and ophthalmic teaching institutions worldwide. The VisuMax Laser is the latest generation of a class of lasers known as femtosecond lasers, including the Intralase and FemtoLDV lasers.

Bladeless LASIK is offered by New Vision Laser Centers-Centre for Sight at Vadodara, Ahmedabad, Mumbai, Hyderabad and Surat, besides other centers of Centre for Sight at Delhi, Indore and Meerut.

 

Where is ReLEx smile offered?

Where is ReLEx smile offered in India?

ReLEx smile is offered by New Vision Laser Centers-Centre for Sight at our Mumbai LASIK Center, our Hyderabad LASIK Center, and our Vadodara LASIK Center. In addition, our parent company, Centre for Sight offers ReLEx smile in Delhi.

We have so much faith in the ReLEx smile procedure that Dr. Syed Maaz, Chief Consultant (Andhra Pradesh) and the Senior Consultant in our Hyderabad LASIK Center has undergone ReLEx smile himself.

Our Clinical Director, Dr. Rupal Shah, has performed more than 3000 ReLEx smile procedures, more than any other doctor in the world. She has been one of the pioneers of the procedure worldwide.

 

Dr. Rupal Shah awarded Best Paper of Session

Dr. Rupal Shah awarded Best Paper of Session

Dr. Rupal Shah was invited as a speaker at the Carl Zeiss European-Middle East-Africa User Meeting on refractive lasers held on June 1, 2013 at Majorca, Spain. She spoke on ReLEx smile-Learnings from Clinical and Scientific Studies. She gave an overview of all the experience gained from ReLEx smile studies through the last 5 years at New Vision Laser Centers-Centre for Sight. Her talk highlighted the advantages of ReLEx smile, including its beneficial effects on Stability, Dry Eyes and Corneal Strength. Dr. Shah was the only Indian invited to this primarily European-Middle East Meeting.

Dr. Rupal Shah was awarded Best Paper of Session by the organizers for her talk.

Dr. Rupal Shah practises LASIK at our LASIK Mumbai and LASIK Vadodara centers. At both our Vadodara and Mumbai centers, she also offers ReLEx smile as a premium alternative to LASIK.
