If you are considering LASIK eye operation, then you can be rest assured about the procedure because at Centre for Sight we care for every eye. We have 52 branches across India in cities like Gurgaon, New Delhi, and Indore to name a few. Here are a few things that will help you get acquainted with the pre-operative part of LASIK.

Your eye doctor will perform a comprehensive eye exam to ensure your eyes are healthy enough to qualify for the procedure. The shape and thickness of your cornea; pupil size; present refractive errors as well as any other eye conditions will be thoroughly evaluated. According to studies, it has been found that the best candidates for LASIK are with mild to moderate myopia, hypermetropia or astigmatism with adequate corneal thickness. The moistness of your eyes will also be evaluated, and a precautionary treatment may be recommended to reduce your risk of developing dry eyes after LASIK. An automated instrument called a corneal topographer is used to measure the curvature of the front surface of your eye and create a map of your cornea. Your eye doctor will also note your general health history and any medications that you are taking to determine if you are a suitable candidate for LASIK.

You should stop wearing contact lenses for a period of time advised by your doctor before your eye exam and before the LASIK procedure, as they can alter the natural shape of your cornea.The LASIK laser surgerytakes about 10-15 minutes per eye and clear vision without glasses or contact lenses are the typically expected results. It takes a few days to weeks for the vision to stabilize. If you are looking for LASIK operation in Haryana – Centre for SightGurgaon can be one of your preferred choices.
