Lasik surgery has changed the paradigm of providing proper vision without power glasses and contact lens. There were many myths revolving around this treatment modality.
Based on a recent survey by the American refractive surgery council, almost 96% of the patients are satisfied with LASIK surgery.
What is a refractive error?
In simple terminology, the parallel light rays will find not come to a point focus on the surface of the retina. The main reason behind this is the change of shape of your eye.
There are three types of Refractive Error,
Myopia – Nearsightedness
Hyperopia – Farsightedness
Astigmatism – Blurred Vision
One of the best and finest treatments in modern science is Laser treatment or LASIK.
What does LASIK do in regaining Vision?
As we mentioned above, the surgery process is done with the help of a laser. This corrects the shape of cornea, which is the dome-shaped clear tissue at the front of the eye.
This correction improves the vision by 100%. When compared to conventional methods like glasses and contact lenses, this has become most effective and predominant procedure in the last 2.5 decades.
Benefits of LASIK Surgery
LASIK can completely change your vision status by bringing back the lost sight
They are associated with little pain due to the numbing drops that are used
Vision will be corrected nearly immediately or the next day after LASIK
No bandages or stitches are required in this treatment
Adjustments can be made years after LASIK to further correct vision if vision changes as you grow by
No longer you need vision glasses or contact eyes

More about Laser Refractive Surgery
Lasik eye surgery is also referred to as laser vision correction.
The cornea serves as a major refracting surface of the eye. Altering the shape of the cornea even slightly could cause a change in the refractive error. It is based on this principle that corneal laser refractive procedures work
There are many procedures that could be performed. However, which technique would best suit your eyes varies from individual to individual.
It’s important to know which type of procedure best suits your cornea.
Trans Photorefractive keratectomy
Laser-assisted in situ Keratomileusis (LASIK)
These are some of the techniques used to provide the safe refractive correction.
The procedure usually takes only 5-7 minutes. It is important to boost the patient’s self-confidence with a positive impact.
On top of it all, the procedure is performed under surface anesthesia with just eye drops.
Before we suggest the above procedure,
We would first ensure that there has been no recent change in the refractive error
Ensure there are no weak areas in the eye especially the retina and image the cornea to understand its properties like shape and thickness
Only we find all the above parameters under normal boundaries, we will advise undergoing such a procedure.
You can be back to your routine life after 2 days to a week as healing varies from individual to individual and from procedure to procedure.

There are 3 major types of refractive errors. Myopia or short sight refers to a condition where light rays come to a focus in front of the light sensitive retina. Hypermetropia or long sight is a condition where light gets focussed behind the retina. Astigmatism is a distinct entity wherein light does not come to a point focus at all and it requires special lenses called cylindrical lenses for its correction.
Anyone can get refractive error. With indiscriminate use of gadgets and other entertainment devices, refractive errors are becoming more common. Also if there is a family history of refractive error you are more likely to wear glasses.
Spectacle correction is one among many ways to treat refractive error. It is by far the most commonly used aid for the correction of refractive error. For miniscule refractive errors its not warranted.
There’s no such correlation, however if prescription glasses arent worn then you are likely to strain your eyes even more and that could lead to headaches and further change in refractive correction.
You could try contact lenses or a laser refractive surgery.
Refractive errors are essentially caused when the ‘physics’ of the eye deviates from the normal. Typically the shape of the cornea or the length of the eyes are responsible for refractive errors. There are no exercises that can alter the shape of the cornea or length of the eyes. Therefore it’s highly unlikely that exercises can help.
Foods rich in Vitamin A and Vitamin D are good for the eyes. Foods like carrot, beetroot, drumsticks, greens like spinach, eggs and milk are rich sources of nutrition for your eyes. Consuming them would ensure your eyes remain healthy. Effects of vitamins on refractive errors is ambiguous.
