What is laser eye surgery?

Laser eye surgery is a term used to describe a collection of procedures. It commonly corrects short-sightedness (myopia), long-sightedness (hypermetropia) and astigmatism.

Different laser eye surgery techniques are used to correct each condition. These corrections are achieved through the use of a laser which reshapes the cornea (the transparent part) and adjusts the focus of the eye. Laser eye surgery at our centers is a brief procedure and is entirely painless due to the application of anaesthetic drops.

LASIK laser eye surgery is the most commonly performed treatment in india. LASIK is an acronym that stands for Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis.

Your eyes see by allowing light to enter through the cornea (the front part of the eye) and focus on the retina. The information is then communicated to the brain via the optic nerve.

Most people with poor eyesight have eyeballs that are either too long or too short in relation to the size of the cornea. Eyeballs which are relatively long mean that images focus in front of the retina, making you short-sighted. Eyeballs that are relatively short mean that images focus behind the retina, making you long-sighted.

Laser eye surgery reshapes your corneas with precision accuracy so that light will focus directly on your retinas. The result is that you will be able to see clearly without the need for glasses or contact lenses.



Types of Laser Eye Surgery

There are several different types of laser eye surgery techniques due to the varying conditions treated.


The commonest type of laser eye surgery; 90%+ of patients are suitable. A flap is created in the cornea and reshaped underneath to the correct prescription. Most suited to treating long & short-sightedness and Astigmatism.

Contoura Vision

It is a topography-guided LASIK treatment designed to provide a more personalized laser procedure for patients with myopia, or myopia with astigmatism, based on the unique corneal topography of each eye.


Photorefractive Keratectomy, more commonly called PRK, is a laser vision correction procedure. PRK is often a good solution for people with thinner than normal corneas by making thin corneal flap.


It does not require a corneal flap. The SMILE Laser works inside the cornea to remove your prescription by isolating a lenticule of tissue that is then removed through a very small, smile-like, incision.

Who is eligible for laser eye surgery ?

While most people are eligible for laser eye surgery, there are a few exceptions:

Under 18s – it is not advised that people under 18 have laser eye surgery as their eyes are still changing.

Pregnant women – Pregnancy can affect eyesight, so women are advised to wait until after they have given birth before presenting themselves for surgery.

Your prescription – Your prescription should be stable, ideally unchanged within the last two years, to ensure that the surgery will be effective. Laser eye surgery is most straightforward in a patient with a prescription in the normal range, usually between -10D and +7.25D.

Medical conditions – Some medical conditions can affect your suitability for laser eye surgery. Eye conditions like blepharitis leave you at a greater risk of infection, while general conditions like diabetes and epilepsy may render you unsuitable for this particular treatment if they are not under control. If the condition is well-managed however, you may be fine, so always seek advice.




Recovery after laser eye surgery

Your eyes will start healing as soon as the procedure is over and you should see the results of your vision improvement immediately. You will be able to see things much more accurately but there may be a little blurriness shortly after surgery while your eyes stabilise so it’s important to arrange someone to meet you following surgery. 

After 24- 48 hours the majority of patients are fully recovered and able to go about their usual day to day activities but this can vary depending on the type of laser eye surgery undergone.



If you happen to fall in that small percentage of patients for whom LASER is not the best option, there is still hope! You can get rid of your glasses and contacts with alternative laser vision correction techniques.

3. Implantable Contact Lenses

Micro-thin lenses placed inside the eye to correct a variety of vision problems.

4. Refractive Lens Exchange

Exchange your high prescription lens with a new 20/20 lens.

5. Cataract Removal Surgery

Laser-asssisted removal of a cloudy lens that’s replaced with a new lens. See like you did when you were young.





No, the laser can’t burn a hole in your eye. But it’s a good question. Find the answers to our most frequently asked questions at EyeVaidya. Some of them may surprise you!

One of the things that sets EyeVaidya apart is that we have every technology available to get you out of glasses, so we don’t have to shoehorn you into a procedure that might not be the best fit for you. The biggest two factors that affect the procedure recommendation and outcomes are: age and amount of prescription. Also important is your anatomy and eye health.

Your age is important, because our eyes go through different stages:

  • Age 0-18: our eyes are growing, our visual pathway is developing, our refractive error (nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism) is changing, and therefore glasses, contacts, and myopia control methods are the best way to maintain your vision. We do not perform surgery on anyone under 18.
  • Age 18-45: ocular maturity occurs in this phase when as an adult, your prescription will stabilize. Most people have a misconception about stability, and confuse normal small fluctuations from day to day with a change in their prescription. Sometimes they believe their nearsightedness has gotten better, when they were over prescribed for the amount of nearsightedness they have. This is typically when LASIK or PRK is recommended, if your cornea and prescription safely allow it.
  • Early Dysfunctional Lens Age 45-65: the clear flexible lens in our eye becomes less and less flexible until we’re in our mid-50s when it’s completely rigid. When we’re in our mid-40s, the loss of flexibility forces us to realize that we’re no longer 25 years old, and we can’t have it both ways. We can’t have good distance and near vision in both eyes. We need either distance glasses, near glasses, or both (bifocal glasses or multifocal contacts) At this age we may still recommend LASIK or PRK, but reading glasses and monovision are discussed and demonstrated.
  • Late Dysfunctional Lens Age 65+: our lens first becomes less flexible which is noticed in our mid 40s (give or take a couple years), then it becomes less clear, which we notice in our mid 60s (give or take a decade).  The early symptoms are glare from oncoming headlights, rings around lights, and asymmetric blurry vision. At some point on this spectrum we decide to have cataract surgery. LASIK is not recommended if you have developing cataracts.

Your prescription amount (degree of nearsightedness) is important for several reasons. The higher the degree of nearsightedness, the more tissue LASIK and PRK removes from your cornea, and each person has a slightly different amount, and limit. we measure the thickness of your cornea with both sound and light to get a highly accurate measure. LASIK removes tissue from beneath the laser created flap. PRK removes tissue from the surface of your cornea.

Your ocular anatomy is important, in that some people are not LASIK candidates due to the shape and thickness of their cornea. If your cornea has signs of instability, or is too thin, we don’t operate on it.  Some people can safely due PRK but not LASIK due to these same factors. Anatomy is also important when considering an Implantable Contact Lens (ICL) because you need adequate room between your natural lens and the back of your cornea to allow an ICL to be implanted.

Your eye health must be excellent to safely perform vision correction surgery. This is a big part of why we perform a free comprehensive exam with EyeVaidya.

At EyeVaidya, we offer LASIK, PRK, ICL, and IOL. The recommendation depends on your age, prescription amount, anatomy, and other factors. We spend a lot of time making sure you know the what, the why, and the pros and cons of our recommendation.

If your vision is worse after LASIK or PRK than it was before with glasses or contacts, it’s almost always due to dry eyes or residual prescription. Both of these are fixable with time (for dry eyes which is almost always the cause of foggy vision for a month or more after LASIK) or with additional laser to touch it up (which is necessary approximately 1% of the time and free for the first year after surgery).

Of course there are risks associated with every kind of surgery, and laser vision correction is no exception. To put it in perspective, however, the risk of laser vision correction is significantly less than the risks of wearing contact lenses. Yes, you read that correctly. The conclusion of a 2016 article from the academic journal Ophthalmology stated: “Compared with contact lens wear, current LASIK technology improved ease of night driving, did not significantly increase dry eye symptoms, and resulted in higher levels of satisfaction at 1, 2, and 3 years follow-up.” Price MO et al. Ophthalmology. 2016;123(8):1659-1666.

Most insurance/vision plans do not pay towards LASIK or PRK, but we do honor the discount from Eyevaidya. your out of pocket expense will be the same. Always check with your insurance carrier or health benefits administrator before coming in for your exam. A few forward-thinking companies are currently paying for some or all of their employees’ LASIK, PRK, and ICL.

Prior to consultation

Don't Wear Contact Lens

Please note that you cannot wear contact lenses prior to your consultation or surgery. This is so we can take accurate measurements of your eye. You cannot wear soft lenses for 3 days before your consultation, and you can not wear gas permeable lenses for four weeks.
