Vista Laser Vision Center is a LASIK division of Aashirwad Eye Hospital, equipped with one of the highly sophisticated laser machine - Allegratto wave Eye Q 400Hz. With introduction of VISTA, we aim at providing the highly efficient LASIK procedure for freedom from glasses and contact lenses.

LASIK (Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis)
Lasik is the most popular and most widely used laser eye treatment in the world. Lasik is a quick & often painless procedure. With LASIK surgery, a thin layer of tissue called a "flap" is created on the surface of the cornea. With the flap lifted away, a laser delivers light energy to the cornea. This reshapes the cornea, allowing light rays to focus properly on the retina, providing sharp, clear vision. Following the procedure, the flap is placed back in place and serves as a natural bandage, allowing your eye to heal quickly with minimal discomfort.

    LASIK (A laser procedure) is a quick,out-patient procedure that utilizes a cool ultraviolet light to precisely reshape the cornea to correct vision problems such as Myopia, Hyperopia, and Astigmatism.

    Myopia

    A person cannot see far objects clearly.

    Hyperopia

    A person cannot see near objects clearly

    Astigmatism

    A person can see blurred object.

    Spectacles and contact lenses are being prescribed to the patients with refractive errors. Though these are the most common solutions used by patients and ophthalmologists, glasses and contact lenses have certain limitations and drawbacks.

    Limitations and Drawbacks of Spectacles

    1. Limits thew field of vision

    2. May minify or magnify objects

    3. Expensive over a lifetime wear

    4. May limit certain activities like night driving or swimming.

    5. Could be a limitation to pursue certain career like defense, driving, professional swimming etc

    Contact Lenses

    1. May lead to infection if not used appropriately.

    2. May cause physical changes of the eye over a longtime wear.

    - It is the preferred choice for refractive correction by surgeons worldwide.

    - Procedure is performed on outpatient basis.

    - Clarity of vision within hours after surgery.

    - No more daily rituals with visual aids.

    - Greater convenience for playing sports.

    - Broad range of treatable prescriptions

    - Both eyes treated on the same day.

    - Minimum side effects.

    - A thin flap of cornea is created using Microkeratome.

    - Cool and non thermal laser is applied onto the exposed cornea to reshape it.

    - Flap is placed back which heals automatically.

    - No injection-No stitches - No Pad - No pain - No bleeding

    - Faster procedure & quicker recovery.

    Aashirvad Eye hospital offers the state of the art LASIK technology for precise and predictable outcomes. The VISX StarS4 excimer laser with CustomVue technology is an advanced equipment that ensures safety with efficiency and has a very good track record of happy and satisfied patients.

    The CustomVue Technology

    From the beginning, VISX's success has been based upon unparalleled Research and Development efforts in the field of Laser Vision Correction technology. Today these efforts are represented by the marriage of the STAR S4 Excimer Laser System and the WaveScan Wavefront System creating the CustomVue Procedure.

    The CustomVue procedure tailors a distinct correction for each individual - in fact each treatment is "designed" by the unique characteristics of the individuals' eyes. WaveScan technology captures unique imperfections in each individual's vision that could not have been measured before. This new level of measurement provides 25-times more precision than measurements using standard methods for glasses and contact lenses. WaveScan technology produces a detailed map of the eye - much like a fingerprint, no two are alike and translates this information into a set of CustomVue treatment instructions for the laser. WaveScan transfers these digital treatment instructions to the laser, providing a new level of precision and accuracy.

    Beyond Glasses and Contacts

    - Glasses and contacts are limited in their ability to correct unique imperfections in each individual's vision. In fact, thousands of individuals have the same prescription. With the CustomVue procedure, no two "prescriptions" are identical.

    - This precise level of measurement and treatment can enable individuals to achieve the full potential of their vision.

    VISX's FDA clinical study results were remarkable. Among other things:

    - At one year after the VISX CustomVue procedure:
    100% of the clinical study participants could pass a driving test without glasses or contacts
    98% of the clinical study participants could see 20/20 or better without glasses or contacts
    70% of the clinical study participants could see 20/16 or better without glasses or contacts

    - Four times as many clinical study participants were very satisfied with their night vision after the VISX CustomVue procedure, compared to their night vision before with glasses or contacts.

    * FDA clinical results for Low to Moderate Myopia, Up to -6.0 D MRSE with or without astigmatism up to 3.0 DC

    The fingerprint of your vision

    Your vision is unique - as personal as your fingerprint or your DNA. WaveScan technology provides your eye doctor with a map of your eye.

    WaveScan Technology

    Initially you will meet with your eye doctor for a complete medical evaluation and eye history to determine whether you are a good candidate for the CustomVue procedure. Your doctor will discuss the benefits and risks of the procedure with you. A WaveScan measurement will be taken to map the unique characteristics of your eye. With this map, your doctor will be able to:

    - Accurately assess whether you're a good candidate for laser vision correction. Anyone who is considering laser vision correction should obtain a WaveScan measurement as the first step.
    - Along with the other diagnostic tests that your doctor performs, an individualized treatment plan can then be developed to address your unique vision needs.

    Once it is confirmed that you are a good candidate, your doctor will schedule you for a CustomVue procedure. Your doctor will provide details to you on how to prepare for the day of the procedure.

    PreVue Lens

    If your doctor feels it is beneficial, he or she may choose to provide you with a PreVue Lens during the consultation. The PreVue Lens enables you to view an approximation of your potential corrected vision prior to treatment; however, it is not meant to be predictive of your actual result. Your doctor will place a plastic lens under the laser. Using the information from the WaveScan, your unique correction will be placed on the lens. The lens is then fitted in a trial frame for viewing.

    The CustomVue Procedure

    On procedure day, you will be seated in a reclined position. Anesthetic drops will be placed in your eyes and a flap will be created on your cornea. Your individualized treatment information is transferred from the WaveScan to the laser in order to drive the CustomVue procedure. The actual laser procedure typically takes several seconds. Most individuals feel no pain during the procedure.

    After CustomVue, you will notice results immediately, and your vision will continue to improve over the next few days. Typically, you will be scheduled for a follow-up visit the next day, again in about a week, and again around a month after the initial procedure.
