Our Vision is Your Eyes and Sight
Smile Eye Surgery
The SMILE eye surgery is a short form for Small Incision Lenticular Extraction. It is a highly advanced technology of blade-free laser vision correction, with even more precision than Femto-LASIK procedures that are widely done.
While Femto-LASIK surgery still uses a laser procedure to create the corneal flap, SMILE does not have any need of the corneal flap. The surgeon performs the procedure without having any effect on the cornea cells, inflicting hardly any pain or discomfort during or after the surgery is done. SMILE is different from previous treatment methods because it is a one-laser surgery. Unlike LASIK or PRK, the reshaped cornea improves the vision of the patient.
It is a fully automated next-generation procedure that is completed in a short time to give long-lasting and stable results. The chances that a patient might require retreatment are very low in comparison to other blade-free LASIK procedures.
Those who have a stable power and want to get rid of specs or contact lenses can get SMILE vision correction. It is used most for correcting myopia, showing excellent results and improved vision. Aside from myopia, it can also be used to treat mild astigmatism, with cylindrical power up to -0.5 only.
Cataract Eye Surgery
One of eyesight problems that people commonly suffer from is Cataract. In layman's language, a cataract is a clouding of the natural lens in the eye. It becomes almost opaque over time and starts to affect vision. In a normal functioning eye, the light rays pass through a clear lens to form an image on the retina. The image signals sent to the brain form a person’s sense of sight. When the lens is not clear due to a cataract, no clear image can be formed on the retina resulting in poor vision.
Development of Cataract -
The development of cataract happens slowly over the years in some cases, and rapidly in others. This can cause difficulties in performing daily activities like reading, driving or watching things from a distance.
Here are some of the main reasons for the development of cataract :-
  • Ageing : People older than 60 years of age are at the risk of getting      cataract.
  • Exposure : An overexposure to UV rays can negatively affect the eyes and cause cataract.
  • Drug-induced : One can get cataract due to prolonged usage of          steroids and other prescription drugs.
  • Diabetes : People with diseases like diabetes are more likely to develop a cataract.
  • Injury-induced: An injury to the eye can cause cataract or even complete loss of vision.
Treatment
Cataract cannot be corrected with glasses, the clouding of the natural lens essentially prevents that. There is no specific medication to cure it, patients undergo surgeries for cataract removal instead. Centre For Sight offers a number of surgical options depending upon the severity of the cataract, its cause and current condition of the patient’s eyes. The surgery best suited to the case is suggested after thorough testing only.
