Procedure: Lens Exchange with MFlex lens implants, March 09. Result: 6/6 N5 unaided : 20/20 sight in both eyes! "What made the London OC my choice for lens exchange surgery is that they provide a totally unique, highly professional and exceptional standard of service. From the minute I arrived for my first consultative appointment to my final post-op visit, my consultant, Mr Sharma and his team, made me feel as though my eyes and the welfare of my sight was just as incredibly important to him as it is to me. When you think about the possibility of not having sight – you can understand why this is the vital ingredient any patient must have, before they can confidently say they want to go ahead and have the surgery they really need.

The knowledge that Mr Sharma is a consultant surgeon who holds a consultant position in a London teaching Hospital and performs world class ophthalmic operations also gave me the confidence that the London OC look after the welfare of its patients with the latest technologies, bespoke lenses and techniques.

The staff at the London OC is second to none. They helped me feel relaxed and did not ask any awkward questions. Mr Sharma’s highly professional attitude paired with his down to earth method of relaying his knowledge and sense of humour, made me feel at ease about my decision to consider surgery and gave me the confidence when deciding to go ahead.

What raises the bar of excellence here is that Mr Sharma made me feel totally at ease at surgery and following the operation. He provided one to one telephone support on the days following the surgery, and examined the status of the completed procedure on a regular basis. He was always available to answer any question, however trivial, and most importantly never made me feel as though they were trivial. That means a lot.

All in all coming to the London OC has been the best decision I ever made. I have been incredibly fortunate to find such a dedicated consultant surgeon and his team to my disposal. Thank you to all the staff who have looked after me!"

What is Wavefront Lasik?

LASIK is an acronym for Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis. It is s type of refractive eye surgery used to correct vision and eliminate the need for eyeglasses and contact lenses.

 

When the eye is seeing correctly, the multiple light rays are refracted (bent) by the cornea and lens, this joining at the retina in the back of the eye creates an image, which is then translated into neurosignals that the brain recognizes as vision. If the light rays are being refracted at the wrong angle, the image is distorted and vision problems result, such as myopia (near-sightedness) or hypermetropia (far-sightedness).

 

The goal of refractive surgery is to change the angle of refraction of the light rays passing though the cornea, this aids in the correct converge at the retina and restores proper vision. During a LASIK operation, the shape of the cornea is altered by carefully vaporizing the tissue with a laser. To correct myopia, the center of the cornea can be made more flat by removing more tissue from the center than from the edge. To correct hyperopia, the center of the cornea can be made more curved by removing more tissue from the edge than from the center.

 

Wavefront Lasik Procedure

Before the procedure, a local anesthetic is administered, usually in the form of eye drops, to numb the eye. Special tools are used to hold the eye in place and prevent blinking; a special cutting tool called a microkeratome is used to cut a very thin flap in the cornea. The flap is opened and the reshaping takes place.

 

The LASIK procedure itself is not uncomfortable or painful. The patient is awake during the procedure, and the process is completed in just a few minutes.

 

Recovery from Wavefront Lasik

You will need to where a protective pad for about 24 hours. You may experience blurred vision for one to two days, after which time you can return to work or normal activity. Slight blurriness may persist but it should stabilize after one month.
