What is Eye Operation

Eye surgery is used to treat a variety of conditions, including cataracts, glaucoma, detached retinas, retinal tears, diabetic retinopathy and nearsightedness or farsightedness.

Types of eye surgery?

Common types of eye surgery are explained below. The descriptions incorporate information provided by the National Eye Institute, National Institutes of Health.

Blepharoplasty :- To repair droopy eyelids, the doctor makes a small incision or incisions to remove skin and muscle and to remove or reposition fat.

Cataract surgery :- A cataract is a cloudy area in the lens of your eye that can make it hard to see clearly. The doctor uses tiny tools to remove the cloudy lens and replace it with an artificial lens.

Corneal transplant :- The doctor uses a special tool to keep your eye open while removing the damaged part of your cornea and replacing it with healthy donor tissue. Doctors can do a full thickness corneal transplant

Glaucoma surgeries :- Glaucoma implants, the doctor inserts a tiny tube called a shunt into the white of your eye; the tube helps extra fluid drain out of your eye, lowering your eye pressure. In a trabeculectomy, the doctor creates a tiny opening in the top of your eye, under your eyelid, to allow the extra fluid to drain.

Lasik Eye Surgery :- LASIK eye surgery may mean no more corrective lenses. But it's not right for everybody. Learn whether you're a good candidate and what to consider as you weigh your decision.

LASIK surgery has a good track record. Complications that result in a loss of vision are rare, and most people are satisfied with the results. Certain side effects, particularly dry eyes and temporary visual disturbances, are fairly common. But these usually clear up after a few weeks or months, and very few people consider them to be a long-term problem.

LASIK Eye Surgery Benefits

  • It’s been around for over 25 years. About 96% of patients reach their vision goals afterward. An enhancement can raise this number even more.
  • There’s very little, if any, pain involved.
  • There aren’t any bandages or stitches.
  • If your vision changes as you age, your doctor can adjust it.
  • You probably won’t need to use glasses or contacts as much, or at all, after LASIK.

LASIK Eye Surgery Risks

  • It’s a complex procedure. It’s rare, but there may be problems that permanently affect your vision. This is one reason to choose a surgeon who has a lot of experience with these surgeries.
  • Rarely, you may lose your "best" correctable vision, the highest degree of vision that you had while wearing contacts or eyeglasses, after LASIK..
  • Most insurance doesn’t cover LASIK.

Retina surgeries :- There are several procedures for repairing a damaged or detached retina, some of which may be used in combination. To create small scars that will fix a tear or hole and help hold your retina in place, the doctor may apply a freezing probe (cryopexy) or shine a laser to make a small burn (photocoagulation). In scleral buckle surgery, the surgeon places a tiny, flexible band around the white part of your eye (the sclera); this band gently pushes the sides of your eye toward your retina to help it reattach. In pneumatic retinopexy, the doctor injects a small air bubble into the middle of your eyeball to push your retina back into place before applying the freezing or burning treatment; the bubble will disappear on its own over time. A vitrectomy involves the use of a suction tool to remove most of the vitreous (the gel-like substance that fills the eye), allowing the surgeon better access to the retina and providing room for the bubble.

Eye muscle surgery :- Strabismus is a condition in which the eyes don’t move together as a pair; one eye might drift in, out, up or down. Surgery isn’t the only treatment option, but when it is needed, a surgeon attempts to restore the eye muscles to a proper position by using techniques that weaken or strengthen them. This could involve removing a section of muscle or reattaching a muscle to a different point in the eye.

LASIK eye surgery: A complete procedure guide and what to expect

  • 1. A mechanical surgical tool called a microkeratome or a femtosecond laser is used to create a thin, circular flap in the cornea. The surgeon then folds back this hinged flap to access the underlying cornea (called the stroma).
  • 2. An excimer laser is used to reshape the corneal stroma. This highly specialized laser uses a cool ultraviolet light beam to remove ("ablate") microscopic amounts of tissue from the cornea to reshape it so it more accurately focuses light on the retina for improved vision.
  • 3. The corneal flap is laid back in place, where it adheres to the corneal stroma without stitches.

Eye surgery cost in India.

In India, LASIK cost varies from centre to centre being as low as Rs 5,000/- per eye to as high as over a lakh of rupees. Many laser centers typically use older technology that is far cheaper with minimal medical safety protocols and quality control.

What is Lens Replacement Surgery?

Lens replacement surgery (or RLE) is a vision correction technique for patients who are frustrated with deteriorating vision.
The procedure is a safe and permanent way to correct both short or long-sightedness, and prevent or remove cataract.

Who Qualifies for Natural Lens Replacement?

Lens replacement surgery is ideal for patients who are diagnosed with:

  • Cataract
  • Astigmatism
  • Presyopia
  • Long-sightedness (Hyperopia)
  • Short-sightedness (Myopia)
  • Dependence on bifocal, varifocal or multifocal contact lenses or glasses

Lens replacement Procedure ?

The surgery itself takes no more than 10 minutes, but you’ll have to rest about 30 minutes to an hour immediately after the procedure. As your eye will be anaesthetised with numbing drops, you will feel no pain. The discomfort and grogginess will gradually disappear while the anaesthesia is wearing off.

The success rate is very high. Lens replacement surgery is safe, and life changing for millions of patients who have this successful procedure every year.

All surgeries have some degree of risks, which is why you should discuss your procedure in detail with your eye surgeon. Risks and complications are rare, and can be further mitigated by choosing a high-quality lens replacement provider.

Astigmatism Correction

Astigmatism can also be corrected by reshaping the cornea through LASIK (laser in situ keratomileusis) or PRK (photorefractive keratectomy). PRK removes tissue from the superficial and inner layers of the cornea. LASIK removes tissue only from the inner layer of the cornea.
