Laser eye surgery or LASIK is a type of refractive surgery to correct vision problems caused by refractive errors, i.e., myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. The procedure is performed by an ophthalmologist who uses an excimer or microkeratome laser to reshape the cornea and help the patient to improve visual acuity. It is an effective and long-lasting technique to correct blurry vision and eliminate the need for eyeglasses and contact lenses.

People refrain from opting for this advanced treatment believing that eye laser treatment cost is very high. However, the overall LASIK eye surgery cost is easily affordable.

Various Types of Laser Eye Treatment

  • PRK: This stands for Photorefractive Keratectomy. It is a corrective measure for all types of eye disorders. It involves the use of a laser that generates cool ultraviolet rays. These UV rays are made to fall directly on the surface of the cornea to reshape it. This method is carried out until the cornea is perfectly structured to focus the right amount of light on the retina.
  • LASIK: This also serves to provide remedial measures for all types of vision disorders. It involves the use of a laser, similar to PRK. But, the laser beams create a flap on the outer surface of the cornea and not directly on its internal layer. It is through this flap that the internal tissues are reached and modified.
    Finally, the cornea is in a position to perform normally; thus resolving vision problems. Lasik is preferred over PRK because it has a shorter recovery time and has no initial discomfort in the postoperative period.
  • LASEK: This is a hybrid of LASIK and PRK. Neither does this method completely remove epithelial cells as in PRK nor does it create a flap over the cornea. This method rather loosens these cells with alcohol, leaving them attached to the stroma. The laser is then used to reshape the internal layer of the cornea and finally, the loosened epithelial cells are rolled back to their original position.
  • PRELEX: These are corrective measures for presbyopia. In this method, a multifocal lens replaces a natural lens entirely. Thus, there remains no scope for developing cataracts in the future.
  • Intacs: This method is primarily used to treat Keratoconus – irregularity of cornea that leads to loss of vision. In this method, two plastic rings are placed on the outer edge of the cornea that flattens it. Thus the cornea can focus the correct amount of light on the retina.

FAQs

What are the factors that affect the cost of laser eye surgery in India?


There are a variety of factors that impact the eye laser treatment cost, such as-

  • Diagnostic tests and evaluation
  • Surgeon’s fee
  • Extent of correction required
  • Hospital admission and discharge fee
  • Post-surgery care and medications
  • Follow-up consultations
An eye specialist will give an estimate of the overall eye operation cost after an accurate diagnosis so that the patient can make an informed decision.

Who can undergo LASIK?


Any person who meets the below eligibility criteria can undergo LASIK or laser eye surgery-

  • The patient is 18 years old or above.
  • Vision is stable for at least a year or so.
  • Corneal thickness is adequate.
  • The eyes are healthy, i.e., no underlying condition that can affect vision.
  • The patient is not pregnant or breastfeeding.

How much do different types of laser eye surgery cost?


The cost of each technique for vision correction is slightly different. Here is an estimated cost of types of laser eye surgery-

  • PRK- Rs. 35,000 to Rs. 40,000
  • LASIK- Rs. 15,000 to Rs. 95,000
  • LASEK- Rs. 10,000 to Rs. 1,45,000 per eye
  • PRELEX- Rs. 1,00,000 to Rs. 1,60,000
  • Intacs- Rs. 80,000 to Rs. 1,25,000

How long does it take to see clearly after laser eye surgery?


Normally, a person will regain clear vision within 1-2 days after surgery. However, each eye is different. Hence, there is a possibility that some patients would need around a week or so to see clearly.

How long will the laser eye surgery results last?


The results of LASIK or laser eye surgery can last up to 10 years when the patient takes good care of the eyes. The procedure reshapes the cornea successfully, therefore, the results are permanent. However, eye health may degrade with age which can be prevented by taking all measures to maintain eye health.

What is the recovery duration after LASIK eye treatment?


On average, a patient needs a month to completely recover from the surgery. The flap created during the procedure may need 3-4 weeks at least to reattach itself. And during this period, it is important for the patient to take all precautions.


There is a misconception related to the laser eye surgery cost that it is usually not covered under health insurance. However, this statement is not true. Eye laser surgery price can be covered by insurance if the patient has refractive power higher than 7.0 Diopters (negative and positive). If the patient's eye power is less than 7D, vision correction surgery is usually not deemed necessary. As a result, the LASIK operation cost will not be covered by the insurance provider.

As compared to all other techniques available for vision correction, LASIK is most certainly the safest procedure. It does have risks associated, such as flap issues, night vision problems, dry eyes, etc. but most of these issues can be mitigated by an experienced and skilled eye surgeon.

To minimize the post-surgery discomfort, the doctor will compile a recovery plan consisting of precautionary steps and other instructions that will promote faster healing.
