Refractive surgery is a short, painless procedure that reduces or eliminates the need for glasses and contacts to correct nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia) and astigmatism. At Sanjivni, we offer many forms of refractive surgery, including custom laser vision correction (LASIK and PRK), implantable collamer lens (ICL) surgery, and refractive lens exchange (RLE).
About Refractive Surgeries
eye. Reshaping the cornea changes the way your eye focuses light,
making vision more clear and reduces or eliminates the need to wear
contacts or eyeglasses. The Procedure takes just 15 minutes for both the eyes
inside the eye. It is carefully placed between the iris, which is the
colored part of the eye, and the natural lens. Unlike laser refractive
surgery (LASIK and PRK) that treats the cornea on the outside of the
eye, ICL surgery is intraocular surgery and therefore is performed in
the sterile operating room to ensure maximum safety. Because the lens is placed inside the eye, it does not require daily replacement or
cleaning like a regular contact lens.
removing the natural lens in the eye through a small incision and
replacing it with an artificial intraocular lens implant. This artificial lens implant is able to correct nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), astigmatism, and presbyopia (difficulty focusing up close) which reduces, or possibly eliminates, the need to wear glasses or contacts. An additional benefit of RLE surgery is that removing the natural lens in the eye eliminates the need for cataract surgery later in life.
