The clear path to new eyesight Although spectacles and contact lenses improve vision, they are also a constant inconvenience of daily life. Laser vision correction is an advanced procedure to correct refractive errors, and restore normal vision. It is suitable for most people who have near-or far sightedness or astigmatism. An extensive consultation and examination with your eye doctor will determine whether you could benefit from laser vision correction. During the consultation, your doctor will advise you on any possible risks or side effect of the procedure and answer any questions you may have.

What is LASIK? (Laser In-Situ Keratomileusis)

The laser (excimer laser), a state-of-the-art shaping device, is used to change the shape of the cornea to change its focusing power. The laser polishes the corneal surface and the tissue is selectively removed to reshape the cornea. In LASIK, the high-precision laser beam sculpts the cornea, correcting its curvature, so that images are sharply focused on retina.

What is Wavefront Assisted Customized LASIK?

Laser procedures differ in the kind of tissue removal that is carried out. Conventional LASIK often created night vision difficulties, as there was an alternation in the natural shape of the cornea. This led to some vision disturbances, particularly in dark conditions.

Aberration-Smart LASIK or Wavefront-Assisted Customized LASIK minimized this alteration in the natural shape of cornea. This minimized or eliminates night vision difficulty after conventional LASIK. Wavefront-Guided customized LASIK minimize the shape change & also customizes the treatment for individual eyes. This gives excellent vision in the night or under low contrast condition, and for some patients, it actually improves their to better than normal vision.

How it works?

It makes only few seconds for the LASIK laser to precisely remove tissue from the cornea-for near-sightedness from the center, for far-sightedness in a ring pattern around the center of the cornea. During treatment, an infrared camera records any involuntary eye movement. The rapid "eye tracker" ensures that the laser beam is always aimed at the right spot. In most cases, patient can already see reasonably well without spectacles or contact lenses immediately after laser treatment. The complete process generally takes just a few weeks.

Today "Clear View Laser Center" has chosen carl zeiss MEL 80 over other exciting technologies, after careful evaluation of the technologies available for LASIK. It is undoubtedly one of the best LASIK laser technologies available today. This technology from ZEISS is unique which definitely gives a much better visual outcome compared to the old and outdated technologies. The MEL 80 Excimer laser System is from the renowned technology company "carl zeiss", Germany.

At the hospital, we offer both LASIK & Wavefront assisted customized LASIK with MEL 80 Excimer Laser, WASCA aberrometer and treatment planner CRS Master from Carl Zeiss.

Some of the advantages od Carl Zeiss MEL 80 Laser system are listed:

  • Planning of customized treatment by ZEISS-CRS MASTER for Wavefront or Topography guided treatment
  • Extremely small spot size and Gaussian beam profile to produces high quality corneal ablation
  • High responsive active eye tracer provides exact positioning during treatment
  • MEL 80 offers extremely fast treatment which relieves patient's stress and provides highly-optimized results.
  • Oculighttm eye registration, a state of art eye registration innovation featuring iris registration and cyclotorsion correction.
