Mumbai, July 20, 2022: This new technique called “No Touch LASIK” is a revolution in the field of refractive surgery. LASIK surgery is a laser refractive surgery that uses a special kind of laser to change the shape of the cornea
TransPRK is an Advanced Surface Ablation technique to reshape the corneal contour without making a cut or creating a corneal flap. Girls above 18yrs and boys above 21yrs or when the glass power is stable for a minimum of 6 months can opt for this technique. Within 2 minutes and without even touching the eye, glasses can be removed permanently.
In a candid conversation with our editor-in-chief, Mr. Riyaz Ahmed speaks with Dr. Aarti Agrawal Bahuva Consultant Refractive Surgeon at Agrawal Eye Hospital and Sanjeevani LASIK Centre said “We added this latest Excimer Laser Platform to our refractive armamentarium the Schwind Amaris 750s recently in 2021. We at Agrawal Eye Hospital and Sanjeevani LASIK Centre are the first to install it all over Maharashtra and Mumbai with merely 8 installations all over India. After performing more than 700 eyes on this refractive suite, we can now proudly say that it is by far the finest machine to date. The beauty of this machine is the TransPRK mode. It can remove the entire eye power without a cut or a flap very smoothly”. So for all those who are skeptical about using a blade or making a cut on your eyes this is surely a procedure for you.
Dr Aarti also mentioned ” It is a moment of profound happiness as we reach another milestone. We completed our 500 successful implantations of a unique lens known as Phakic Lens to remove high-power glasses at Agrawal Eye Hospital. She further added that ” The journey from 0 to 500th lens over a period of 5 years has been overwhelming. I am thankful to all my patients who have kept their trust in me and believed in me. I shall be forever grateful to each one of you for making me who I am today”.
Phakic Intra Ocular Lens implantation is a revolutionary technology to get rid of high-powered glasses in which laser vision correction is contraindicated. This simple 5-minute technique is a life changer for many.
