You know the struggle of a person with glasses since childhood who was always called a nerd? Well, it’s okay if people think of you as intelligent but being a laughing stock and to be called ‘sashmish, chashmato/ parhako’ is something no one likes to be called but very few kids actually manage to object to it. So is the case with my childhood buddy, despite the fact she happened to be one of the coolest people on the planet but I have witnessed people making the wrong perception about her personality since the only thing people see in her is her “chashma”!
With a lot of laser eye treatment stories floating around the internet, I decided to rescue my friend with the latest eyesight-correcting treatment – LASIK. Just a few days ago while researching, I came across a video of a patient who had been through the LASIK procedure.
I started collecting data, meeting people who have gone through the process. Since taking a medical decision is not so easy, one has to ensure that they have precise knowledge of the subject
My friend and I decided to visit multiple eye hospitals offering LASIK. Most of them were almost ready to perform the procedure but we decided to get in touch with the most advanced treatment offering hospital – Hashmanis Hospital. To our surprise, we were told not everyone can qualify for LASIK. They have strict criteria of health conditions upon which the patient can qualify for LASIK. We had our first breath of relief as we realized that we weren’t falling into a commercial trap of any sort and they would only proceed if her eye health standard tests were clear.
The Hashmanis Hospital is offering a number of LASIK options but we decided to go for the Topo-Guided (Contura Vision) that is bladeless and the most advanced option to get rid of glasses and contact lenses.
This latest technology is available only at Hashmanis Hospital and nowhere else in Asia, which added another reason why she chose them over other eye hospitals.
After showing interest in the science behind a LASIK procedure, the hospital staff assisted me in gathering information.
Here are a few things I want everyone to know who is thinking to get rid of glasses with Topo-Guided LASIK is. Yes, you can now get rid of your nerdy glasses in a safe environment.
- It’s an absolutely safe 10-minute procedure
- Recovery time is 6 hours – you can swim, drive, dance etc., after 24 hours
- Surgery without a blade – oh yes it’s a pain-free procedure. You will be required to go through certain eye tests for your own good!
- Your doctor will decide the best option as per your eye health situation
- This procedure is FDA approved
- In the short term (up to 1 month after undergoing the procedure) you may feel slight itchiness, dryness and that is completely normal. The doctor will prescribe you eye lubricants if needed.
P.S. Guess what? My friend is scheduled for the procedure for next week and we are thrilled and excited. I also have good news for everyone who is reading this and wants to get this treatment done.
