Are you finding the Best Hospital to Undergo Laser Eye Surgery in India? Laser eye surgery also known as refractive surgery is a surgery used to correct vision problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, etc. There are various types of laser eye surgery that can be done to enhance your vision and eliminate your specific refractive error.
Over recent years, significant advances in technology have radically improved the surgical techniques by which laser surgery is done, and have provided better results than ever. Laser surgery involves restructuring the cornea, which is the clear front of the eye that allows light to pass through and focus it onto the retina situated at the back of the eye.

Refractive Errors that can be treated using Laser Eye Surgery
The ophthalmologists at We Care India have proficiency in treating several refractive errors by efficiently performing laser eye surgery in India. The vision conditions which can be corrected using laser eye surgery are:
- Myopia: Also known as short-sightedness is a condition where it is hard for people to see distant objects and the objects appear blurry from far, but seem clear when looked at closely.
- Hyperopia: Hyperopia or long-sightedness is a condition when distant objects are clearly perceptible but a close-up look to the object makes them blurry and cloudy.
- Presbyopia: Presbyopia is a type of hyperopia and is a condition that occurs as a person ages. The lens of hardens and becomes inelastic making it hard for the eye to pass and focus the light onto the retina when looking at nearby objects.
- Astigmatism: Astigmatism is a minor eye condition that makes objects appear blurred and crooked. The cause of such a distorted vision is the irregular shape of the cornea. Most of people wearing glasses have astigmatism to some extent.
Different types of Laser Eye Surgery in India
There are mainly three types of laser eye surgery performed at We Care India.
- Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK) Eye Surgery: This is a surgical procedure used to correct moderate eye conditions of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. This surgery takes about an hour and the patient is given anesthesia before performing the surgery. The laser emits an ultraviolet light beam which is projected on the front and lower part of your cornea for the purpose of correcting and reshaping it. Photorefractive Keratectomy was the most commonly used vision correction surgical procedure before the advent of advanced LASIK eye surgical treatment.
- Automated Lamellar Keratoplasty (ALK) Eye Surgery: Automated Lamellar Keratoplasty Eye Surgery is performed in case of acute hyperopia or when a patient has moderate degrees of myopia. The patient is given local anaesthesia before successfully conducting the surgical procedure. This surgery assures faster recovery and takes less time to complete in comparison to the other laser eye surgeries.
- LASIK (laser in situ keratomileuses) Eye Surgery: In the surgical procedure, a laser is extended underneath the corneal flaps for reshaping it. The surgeon will perform this surgery using the excimer laser to correct your specific vision problem or other refractive errors so that you don’t need to use glasses to see things clearly. This eye surgical procedure is done to reshaping the cornea for allowing light entering the eye to be directly focused onto the retina for clearer and sharper vision.
