Lasik Surgery

by Ioannis G Pallikaris, Shashi Kapoor, Srinivas K Rao

The Tips & Tricks LASIK Surgery depicts laser in situ keratomileusis LASIK, which is a widely accepted procedure in making refractive surgery. The obvious benefits of LASIK coupled with early visual recovery, excellent and predictable results, minimal discomfort postoperatively, lesser regression and no haze have contributed to its popularity. Advanced Surface ablations like PRK, LASEK and Epi-LASIK have developed to enlarge the scope of laser refractive surgery. Improvements in providing a better quality of vision have also taken place in the form of wave front guided LASIK and Aspheric LASIK. Another recent exciting development has been the femtosecond laser, used for creating the LASIK flap and solid state lasers. Depending on the commercial viability, they may have a significant role in the future. The refractive surgeon today has to be well versed in all the procedures and design the treatment to suit the patient's requirement.
