Bathinda Lasik Laser Centre (BLLC) is the premier eye care centre in Lasik Laser surgery at Bathinda. We Promise you with brilliant vision without glasses.
An eye exam involves a series of tests to evaluate your vision and check for eye diseases. Your eye doctor is likely to use various instruments, shine bright lights at your eyes and request that you look through an array of lenses. Each test during an eye exam evaluates a different aspect of your vision or eye health.
LASIK, which stands for laser in-situ keratomileusis, is a popular surgery that can correct vision in people who are nearsighted or farsighted, or who have astigmatism.
When light doesn’t focus on your retina the way it should, your vision is blurry. Doctors call this a refractive error. The basic types include:
Contoura Vision is approved by US-FDA claiming highest of safety in specs removal procedures.
Also Contoura Vision has the following advantages:
Contoura Vision with a special Topolyser is able to map and remove corneal irregularities by marking 22,000 unique elevation points on the cornea.
This is able to create an optically perfect smooth surface of cornea, thereby highly enhancing visual sharpness and quality.
Contoura Vision treats on visual axis which is the natural seeing axis of eye. Other procedures like LASIK and SMILE treat on pupillary axis.
This treatment on Visual Axis futher enhances the quality of vision.
Dr. Yuvraj Markan is the founder, director, and chief ophthalmologist of Bathinda Lasik Laser Centre which was founded more than 10 years ago. We offer specialized treatments for both standard and rare eye problems.
Bathinda Lasik Laser Centre offers a range of treatments for vision problems, including standard LASIK, Bladeless LASIK, and Contoura Vision. In addition to that, Bathinda Lasik Laser Centre provides Implantable Collamer Lenses (ICL) to improve vision as an alternative to contact lenses. ICL is often recommended for patients who are not able to undergo Laser refractive correction surgery due to some reasons.
Bathinda Lasik Laser Centre is deemed one of the best eye hospital in India for Contoura Vision surgery. It has been a pioneer in introducing innovative treatments in India.
Femtosecond' LASIK is 100% blade free procedure for those of you who feel hesitant about the surgical blade used in blade LASIK. Advantage of this laser is the precision of the flap with characteristics and dimensions that the surgeon customizes for each eye. This is a fully auto-mated technique to create the flap.
Restore your eyesight with this quick and effective laser vision correction surgery. If you are suffering from near-sightedness (myopia) or farsightedness (hypermetropia) or have astigmatism, you can find permanent freedom from contact lenses and specs through Q-LASIK. HIGH RATE OF CLIENT SATISFACTION.
With Q-LASIK surgery, you get freedom from contacts and glasses. Instead of bothering about taking contacts out before bed or seeking endlessly for your lost eyeglasses, you can enjoy your day-to-day life without difficulty. One has to go through a pre Q-Lasik investigation, which ensures eligibility of getting a safe and permanent treatment for removal of specs.
Standard lasik or conventional Lasik is a process to reshape the cornea using an advanced Laser to correct the refractive error of the eye. The amount of reshaping done to the cornea is determined by some diagnostic tests before the procedure.
Standard laser vision correction surgery uses the prescription in a pair of eyeglasses as the basis to correct vision. It does an excellent job of reducing or eliminating the need to wear glasses or contact lenses. Standard Lasik surgery cannot correct spherical aberration.
ICL surgery is a vision correction procedure that is FDA approved to treat nearsightedness (myopia) and astigmatism in the United States. This is an artificial lens that is surgically implanted inside the eye. It is carefully placed between the iris, which is the colored part of the eye, and the natural lens.
The ICL is used for vision correction for shortsightedness (myopia) from -0.50 to -20.00 D and farsightedness (Hyperopia) from +0.50D to +10.00D. Toric ICL implants correct astigmatism from 0.5D to 6.00D.The ICL can be used as an alternative to Lasik Laser eye surgery and has the advantage of being “Additive” and can therefore be reversed. The levels that can safely be corrected are much higher than Laser eye surgery.
ICL surgery is a good option for those with Dry eye, Keratoconus, those who have thin corneas or abnormally shaped corneas including those who have had corneal transplants.
A refractive lens exchange is a safe and effective procedure for many patients who have been told that they are not a good candidate for LASIK or PRK. With LASER eye surgery, a microscopic amount of tissue is removed from the cornea to help the light focus properly on a patient’s retina. With an RLE procedure, a patient’s cornea remains intact. Instead of removing tissue from the cornea, a patient’s natural crystalline lens, which sits behind the colored part of the eye known as the iris, is removed and replaced with a biocompatible manmade lens. This lens will have an exact prescription unique to the patient’s refractive error. This procedure is very similar to cataract surgery, which many people will need later on in life.
Recent innovations in cataract surgery have now introduced Artificial Intelligence to make it possible for cataracts to be removed with greater precision and accuracy. The AI-LenSx cataract surgery is designed to improve precision, enhance safety and most importantly deliver a predicted visual outcome.
In Phaco technique, a small incision is placed in the eye, and a hollow Phaco needle is introduced through the opening. On giving energy through the tip of the Phaco needle, the cataract lens gets dissolved and is sucked out through this needle. An artificial lens called a foldable Intra-ocular lens is now injected through this small opening. Once inside the eye, it opens up and serves to replace the original lens. Since the eye-opening is very small and designed specially, it self-seals, and no sutures are required. Hence this procedure is also popularly known as “Stitchless” cataract surgery.
Regular Phaco Cataract Surgery It is a surgical technique wherein the cataract is emulsified using ultrasonic energy. The incision size is about 3.0mm.
Micro Phaco Cataract Surgery This is the technique where the cataractous lens is dissolved and aspirated through a 2.2mm micro incision and a special super soft Intra Ocular Lens is introduced through the same incision. The incision in the Microphaco technique is much smaller than the incision in a Regular Phaco technique. Micro phaco is designed to speed the recovery of vision, improve visual outcomes and reduce the restriction on your activities after the surgery. The machines used for Microphaco is either the Centurian machine from Alcon (USA) or the Stellaris machine from Bausch & Lomb (USA), both of which are in use at the Bathinda Lasik Laser Centre. Features of Micro-Phaco:
The definitive treatment of cataract is primarily surgical. Over the years, the surgical technique has undergone a revolution regarding both, technique and patient outcomes. Today, cataract surgery is both safe and effective. In an attempt to further improve patient comfort, the advancement in technology means faster recovery and better visual rehabilitation.
It began with small-incision cataract surgery with an incision less than 4mm in size, as against a 12-14 mm incision in conventional cataract surgery (called extracapsular cataract extraction). The introduction of phacoemulsification changed cataract surgery forever, heralding the onset of sophisticated mechanization. The most significant advancement in this regard are, one, a decrease in the size of the incision, and two, the use of premium IOLs. The latest in the former is the development of the surgical technique, Microincision Cataract Surgery (MICS); where incision size is less than 2mm in size.
In medicine, like life, there is no single best answer. Your doctor will discuss with you the potential benefits of each of these lenses, and help you select the one best suited for your lifestyle and visual needs, as well as your expectations from the cataract surgery.
Lifestyle and priorities: In case you have a very active lifestyle that involves a lot of precise focusing outdoors, like golf, you may compromise your near vision but not your distance vision. If you travel a lot, you might prefer to not be dependent on glasses at all, proceeding a bit of precision for both near and distance vision. On the other hand, if you enjoy sewing or embroidery, you will want perfect near vision.
Pre-existing diseases: In case of certain eye diseases like advanced glaucoma, corneal disorders or age-related macular degeneration, you may not be a good candidate for specific lenses, like the multifocal lens. Your eye doctor will perform a comprehensive eye exam and discuss its results and implications with you, to help you choose the best possible lens for your eye.
Costs: These lenses are more expensive than traditional IOLs, adding an incremental value to the cost of cataract surgery. The premium lenses come at a price that is usually not covered by insurance companies.
Dr. Yuvraj Markan at Bathinda Lasik Laser Centre is well versed in the use of premium IOLs following cataract surgery in Punjab region and have had the experience of implanting thousands of these lenses. Dr. Yuvraj Markan will be happy to discuss all the options available and help you choose the best choice for your eye health, and visual needs.
The retina is like the film of the camera which sends the image to the brain for processing. A damaged retina can lead to significant visual disturbances many of which may become permanent if not treated in time. The retinal diseases are some of the most common causes of a permanent loss of vision in many patients, if not treated on time.
There are four main types of disorders which are related to the retina:
Fluorescein Angiography is one of the most common tests that are done to identify the problems which can cause permanent blindness due to the disorders of the Retina.
Based on the results, the patients are either suggested for Anti-VEGF Therapy or Photodynamic Therapy depending upon their condition.
Glaucoma is the most serious eyesight threatening condition. It usually manifests as a painless, gradual loss of vision. The lost vision can never be recovered. However, medical or surgical treatment can prevent or retard further loss of vision.
Many times it can be confused with a cataract which also manifests as a painless, gradual loss of vision. The difference is that in the case of cataract, the loss of vision is fully recoverable using a simple surgery called Phaco.
Our eyes contain a clear fluid called aqueous humor, which is continuously produced in the eye to bath and nourish the structures inside it. The fluid normally drains out of the eye through drainage canals in a fine meshwork located around the edge of the iris (the colored part of the eye that surrounds the pupil). In people with glaucoma, the fluid fails to drain due to some defect and thus increases the pressure inside the eyes called raised Intraocular Pressure (IOP) (or Tension)
Squint or strabismus is a disorder in which the eyes are not aligned in the same direction. It is more commonly seen in children and may be associated with amblyopia or lazy eye.
The reasons for squint in children and adults are different.
The most noticeable sign of squint, of course, is the misalignment of eyes, which can be noted by the patient, as well as by the observer. Associated symptoms of squint include:
Paediatric Ophthalmology has now been recognised as a distinct speciality in ophthlamology by Government of India, vision 2020 and various leading eye care organisation. Childhood blindness refers to a group of diseases and conditions occurring in childhood or early adolescence, which, if left untreated, result in blindness or severe visual impairment that are likely to be untreatable later in life.
