SBK Lasik Surgery
SBK Lasik aims to preserve the integrity of cornea by creating a precise thin flap offering better safety & faster visual recovery to patients who are undergoing Lasik Surgery in Delhi. Nowadays, a new kind of advanced surgery emerges which includes the best of the best attributes flap creation & number correction Technology. SBK Lasik is also called Thin Flap Lasik, as conventional LASIK create a flap thickness of 130 to 180 microns, while thin flap SBK Lasik offers thinner flaps of precise thickness of 90 to 110.
Over a period of 20 years, lots of advancements have taken place in Lasik Technology, from standard Lasik to Customized Lasik to Advanced Aspheric Lasik. In recent few years, better technology has been launched for making finest quality flap that is SBK Lasik & Femtosecond Laser for Blade Free Lasik which surely offers better outcome eliminating any complications. Thin flap Lasik offers better corneal strength after Lasik procedure because it create very thin flaps and leaving better ground for doing Lasik correction.
Based on affordability factor one who cannot pay for thin flap Lasik, conventional flap Lasik is recommended as treatment is same and only difference is thickness of flap. However, in some case where corneal thickness is not adequate then only thin flap lasik is recommended. SBK Lasik causes less dryness in the eyes and does not give rise to any kind of complications that are created by LASIK.
The cost of SBK Lasik (combination of Advanced Aspheric Lasik & Thin Flap Lasik) cost lowest in Delhi at Rs 40,000 for both eyes
What is Tissue Saving Lasik Treatment Plan? And Why Tissue Saving Treatment is recommended?
Lasik Laser Surgery is a two-step process, first creating a flap and the reshaping corneal surface to correct number. A lasik laser technology corrects nearsightedness by flattening the cornea; it corrects farsightedness by making the cornea steeper. And astigmatism can be corrected by smoothing an irregular cornea into a more symmetrical shape.
Tissue Saving (by 40 to 50 micron) in Flap Making Step by reducing the flap thickness.
Creating a Ultra Thin Flap of 80 to 90 Micron using Femtosecond Bladeless Technology or SBK Technology compare to standard flap making technology of 130 to 150 micron.
Tissue Saving (by 20%) Treatment Plan to reshape Corneal Surface to correct number
The use of a tissue-saving algorithm for laser refractive surgery is an effective way to reduce ablation depth. The high-energy pulses of ultraviolet light penetrate only a tiny amount of the cornea and have the ability to remove as little as 0.25 microns of tissue at a time. (One micron is a thousandth of a millimeter.)
Currently available systems in market consume 12 micron to 18 micron to correct 1 dioptre of number which ideally consume to reshape or ablate the cornea inner layer called stroma. By using tissue saving treatment plan, the overall consumption of tissue to reshape cornea can be reduced by 20%. In some case optical zone can be reduced and 1 dioptre of number can be corrected with 9 micron of corneal tissue.
Advantage of SBK Lasik Laser Surgery
- Maintain Corneal Biomechanics, strength & stability
- Faster visual recovery
- Better quality of vision
