We can’t change the length of the eyeball….but we can surely remove glasses by working on the cornea or on the lens.
The process by which the shape of cornea is remodelled so that you don’t need glasses any more is called LASIK.
Now cornea has 5 layers and to perform a spectacle removal surgery we need to expose the layer which when worked upon, will produce permanent results.
So If we remove the top skin and fire excimer laser it's called PRK
If we make a flap and then fire excimer laser it's called LASIK
And if we do not make any flap and remove a thin layer of cornea with specialised most advanced laser eye surgery system….it’s called SMILE (know more)
Now one size doesn’t fit all….let the years of experience of our refractive surgery pioneers guide you into a spectacle free future with an approach tailored just for you….

About Lasik Eye Surgery
Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis, more popularly known by the name of LASIK Eye Surgery, is a procedure that corrects vision problems and altogether eliminates the necessity of spectacles or corrective lenses. This refractive surgery reshapes the clear round dome at the front of the eye (cornea) and bends the rays of light to focus on the retina instead of someplace else. The end result is a sharper and clearer vision.
LASIK surgery corrects the following refractive errors:
A condition where you are able to see the nearby objects clearly but not far away things. Both these cases consequent the light rays to focus on retina’s front rather than on it, blurring faraway vision.
A condition where you are able to see the distant objects clearly, but not the nearby things.
Persistent blurred state of near and far away vision due to corneal uneven curves or flatness.
Also called the ‘Aging Eye’ condition, it refers to long-sightedness caused by the loss of elasticity of eye lens occurring generally in the middle & old age.
Centre for Sight has been providing the most advanced LASIK treatment options for the correction of all these refractive errors for many years now.
Understanding the evolution of LASIK
LASIK has been making waves in the medical world for almost 25 years. Earliest days witnessed the oncoming of Refractive Keratectomy (RK) in which manual cuts were performed on the eye to alter the shape of the cornea.
Blade-free LASIK Eye Surgery made its advent a decade ago concentrating on removing the corneal tissue in order to give it a new shape. A superior feat than its predecessor, this procedure used FEMTO laser eye surgery to create a corneal flap and guaranteed precise results. However, there was a minor setback. Despite being a bladeless procedure, doctors still had to create a corneal flap. Small Incision Lenticule Extraction (SMILE) eliminated that too.
What is Contoura & Personalised LASIK?
- Wavefront & Topography maps are used to guide treatments to improve the results of LASIK.
- This personalized treatment has been around for a decade and continues to be marketed in different avatars like "Contoura LASIK". The treatment, however, requires a flap & hence carries the same safety profile as LASIK.
- It also does not offer the minimally invasive flap free approach like SMILE.
- Personalised LASIK techniques like Contoura uses the excimer laser only unlike SMILE which works on the most advanced femtosecond laser platform.
Advantages of opting for SMILE procedure over the conventional LASIK treatment include
