She has published several book chapters and articles in the most reputed scientific journals, and she is invited as a speaker all over the world.

b) We are the oldest laser center in Mumbai, having commenced operations way back in 1994. Our track record shows that we always have the best LASIK technology available.

c) We are amongst the select few centers which offer NO Blade LASIK in Mumbai, and one of only two centers which offer the latest, most advanced technology of ReLEx smile. In fact, the pioneering work on ReLEx smile was done at New Vision Laser Centers, much before its widespread adoption in the rest of the world.

d) Our prices are reasonable and all inclusive. Even though we offer the Best LASIK Mumbai, we do not charge the highest prices.

e) ReLEx smile is the Best LASIK Mumbai technology. It offers a flapless, painless, bladeless process, which is not otherwise available at all.

f) Unlike all other eye doctors, we specialize in LASIK. Our speciality gives us the experience, technology and focus which allows us to provide the Best LASIK Mumbai.


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

Laser Eye Correction Risks

Laser Eye Correction Risks

Following are the Laser Eye Correction Risks. Please note that most of these outcomes are very rare, and in general, most laser eye correction patients do extremely well, and are off to work on th very next day with perfect outcomes.

a) Procedure may not be completed on the same day-generally with bladeless lasik or ReLEx smile, this is unlikely-and may need to be postponed by a few weeks.

b) Undercorrection or overcorrection, resulting in some number being left behind. Generally speaking, we offer a free enhancement procedure to take care of this. Our current enhancement rates are 1-2%. ReLEx smile enhancement rates are about 0.2%.

c) Post-operative infection. Extremely rare if proper care is taken

d) Excessive Corneal thinning. We will not treat patients whose corneas are already too thin. But in some cases, very rarely, excessive thinning can happen despite our best efforts.

e) Night Vision DIsturbances, like glare and haloes at night. Generally, with the best profiles like aspheric lasik or wavefront customized LASIK this is not likely.

f) Another Laser Eye Correction Risk is an eye infection. An eye infection can have disastrous consequences if not treated properly. This is why we advise antibiotic drops prior to the procedure, and after the procedure, and follow the strictest infection control protocols during surgery. Our infection rate is about 1 in 5000.

g) Flap complications-Only likely with LASIK and not with Bladeless LASIK or ReLEx smile.

Other Laser Eye Corrections risks are also possible. Please click the link for more details.


How long does laser eye correction last?

How long does laser eye correction last?

Laser Eye correction works by corneal reshaping, and the shape change is a permanent one. Since the shape change is permanent, laser eye correction is also permanent. So, in general, laser eye correction last’s permanently, The refractive error (or number, in layman’s terms) should not come back following the procedure.

However, this statement should be viewed with some limitations. Laser eye correction may not last permanently if

a) The surgery has been done at a young age (i.e, less than 18 years for women and less than 21 for men)

b) Other pathologies develop in the eye, like a cataract or glaucoma.

c) Other systemic problems occur-for example, if there is pregnancy or diabetes. Refractive errors can also change as a reaction to some drugs. Sometimes contraceptive pills can also cause a change in refractive errors.

d) In a very few individuals, there is some change in power even without any laser eye correction. Such people should expect that laser eye correction will not last permanently in their case.

e) there is an abnormal healing reaction after laser vision correction-normally this will become evident  fairly quickly-around a month or so after laser eye correction. In such a situation, New Vision Laser Centers will perform an enhancement procedure free of charge.

Also, one must remember that laser vision correction is for distance vision correction. Don’t imagine that it will work for age related near vision problems which appear after the age of 40-42. Such people should undergo presbyopic lasik or laser blended vision.

ReLEx smile is a new laser technique offered at only a few centers-which is the most likely not to cause an abnormal healing reaction in the eye and have the most stable correction. ReLEx smile is offered at:
