This is also called Microkeratome LASIK. Herein, a small specially designed surgical instrument called the microkeratome is used to create the corneal flap, so also known as Blade based LASIK. The flap is then lifted to allow excimer laser to reshape the cornea, correcting the patient’s vision. The microkeratome’s extreme sharpness helps the corneal flap to fit perfectly back in place for the eye to heal. This may sound a little frightening, but discomfort during the surgery is minimal. It is a time tested technique with excellent results over the years. Bladed LASIK is usually quicker and less time is needed for suctioning. This often results in greater comfort and may also be safer for glaucoma patients. However, buttonhole flaps are more frequent in traditional LASIK. This complication is very rare.
If you’ve had previous corneal surgery or corneal injury microkeratome LASIK might be necessary.

It's been a month since the LASIK surgery and i feel quite relieved not having to bother with contact lenses, glasses and not being able to see. Now, I feel good coz I can see clearly with no hassles, and relieved from glasses after 10 years.

With the growing age and multiple times facing the problems of blurred vision, the need of doing an eye check up did arouse. I visited Ojas Eye hospital for the tests and soon I was diagnosed with the eye disease called Cataract. My mind was baffled with questions. Friendly approach of Dr.Dedhia, in Pre and post operations, was truly supporting. The advanced eye correction equipment did ensure the rest. My cataract operation is successful and at present I am blessed with clear vision.
She was suffering from a squint but the highly trained and welcoming team of the hospital made this tough times a comfortable one. The medical process was explained in depth which gave us a green signal with the sense of security and decided to go ahead with the surgery. I once again thank the entire team at Ojas for gifting my daughter the gift of a better sight.

Dream come true to watch the world with naked eyes with ease and Ojas has played a key role to make it happen. It has been excellent experience with Ojas. In terms of professionalism and skills, I consider Ojas one of the best eye care hospital.Especially Dr. Yatin was very helpful and made sure that I face no issues. Thanks
