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
Dr. Rupal Shah will give a keynote address on her journey with ReLEx smile at the annual meeting of the Bombay Ophthalmologists Association (BOA), titled Focus 2013 to be held in Mumbai from August 3-5. She will also speak on Laser Blended Vision, a special LASIK option for those above the age of 40, and she will speak on Combined Corneal Cross Linking with Topo-LINK LASIK during the meeting.
Dr. Rupal Shah, Group Medical Director of New Vision Laser Centers-Centre for Sight is one of the leading refractive eye surgeons of India. She has personally performed more than 30000 LASIK procedures. She practices in both Mumbai and Vadodara. She has also trained more than 1000 eye surgeons on the LASIK technique, and many doctors performing ReLEx smile around the world have first seen her performing the procedure.
Why does New Vision Laser Centers-Centre for Sight represent the Best LASIK Mumbai?
There are several reasons:
a) Our Clinical Director, Dr. Rupal Shah, is one of the most experienced laser refractive surgeons in the world. She has personally treated more than 30000 eyes, and has done pioneering work in the field of laser refractive surgery. 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.
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.
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.
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 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.

EXPERT VISION CENTER – Our concept for success
How I run a successful practice
80% Femto-LASIK vs. 20% PRK – How did we reach this in a very price sensitive market
We offer many different types of procedures in our Mumbai LASIK center. Each of them has a different price, and so we must inevitably discuss LASIK Cost Mumbai only in reference to the type of procedure. For more about each type of procedure, you can refer to the relevant pages as linked to this page.
Corneal Cross linking costs vary based on whether it is accompanied by any topolinking or refractive correction.
Laser Blended Profile for Near Vision Correction: Rs. 5000 (per eye)
The above lasik costs mumbai are for both eyes (unless otherwise mentioned).
Why do we mention a range instead of one single figure? Well, it depends a little on how complex the refractive error is, and the demands of the patient. If you have a high power, or high astigmatism or a thin cornea, or dry eyes, you should expect a figure on the higher side of the range. Also, it depends on the doctor treating you. A more experienced doctor is more likely to charge on the higher side of the range.
Do check at the clinic for any discount schemes we may be running. We often run these, so you might be able to take advantage of the scheme. Do chcck out our facebook page: LASIK Mumbai
Bladeless Laser and Epilasik is not the same as Bladeless LASIK
Some doctors, especially in Mumbai, who do not have a femtosecond laser, perform PRK and try to mislead patients into believing that they are performing Bladeless LASIK. In fact, if you are careful, you will notice that they claim Epilasik or Bladeless Laser, not LASIK.
Let us warn patients not to get convinced by such tricks. Bladeless LASIK is done with a combination of a femtosecond laser and an excimer laser, and is a much different and better procedure than that done by PRK, Bladeless laser, Epilasik or call it what you will. Only the excimer laser is used for this procedure, and obviously, it costs much less, because no advanced femtosecond laser is used. Bladeless Laser or PRK has lots of issues, and that is why in most advanced countries in the world, only a small fraction of all procedures done are by this technique. 90% of all laser procedures in the US for example, are done using Bladeless LASIK not Bladeless Laser.
No wonder the cost of Bladeless LASIK is more than that of Bladeless Laser. It simply has more costs for the surgeon, and rightly so, given the improved safety and accuracy profile. Don’t get taken in by con artists, who confuse you with words.
