The errors are rather small and you can easily get LASIK or PRK done. Recovery time with LASIK is one day, if all goes well (as it does in 99%+ cases).
It is no problem for a pilot to get LASIK done. Pressure differences in normal commercial planes or even modern combat or transport aircraft should not be a problem. The US FAA approves LASIK for pilots, and so does the US Navy for Naval Aviators.
You can get this done relatively quickly. It is a day care procedure with a recovery time of hours rather than days. Just visit a LASIK Center
In Canada, LASIK should cost around USD 4000 for two eyes at a good center. For costs in India, please see my earlier post

I have 26 years old. and my sight is -6 for every eye.
I want to do the lasik and i want to know there is any polices like lic covered to this lasik surgery

Recently, the Andhra Pradesh State Consumer Forum has allowed a petitioner whose claim for LASIK was denied by New India Insurance on the grounds that it was “cosmetic surgery”, to claim compensation from the insurance company on the grounds that the company’s medical expert overruled the treating ophthalmologist without any evidence to that effect.
This is a good judgement. You may try to get reimbursement based on this judgement.

my eyes vision is -8 in my left eyes..i want to go ahead with intralase…. advise me about can i go ahead and about the price?
#6 by samir on July 26, 2010 - 7:17 pm
Of course you can go ahead with Intralase or any other femtosecond laser, like VisuMax or Ziemer. You have a high refractive error, and you should make sure that your corneal thickness is sufficient to treat an error of this magnitude.
Femto-LASIK or Blade Free LASIK or Intralase LASIK costs from around Rs. 70000/- per eye to Rs. 100000/- for both eyes, depending on the city and doctor. Pls. see LASIK Costs for details on costs.

Hi could you please tell me what is the best time to do the LASIK eye surgery in winter or summer
#10 by samir on June 10, 2011 - 2:23 pm
Actually, there is no difference. You may undergo LASIK in either season.
Most doctors do not patch the eye after LASIK. Sometimes, with an eye patch, it is better to choose winter as a season, since the sweat and so on would cause the eye patch to become dirty or loose.
But since there is no eye patch or bandage involved, both seasons are perfectly fine.
#11 by samir on June 10, 2011 - 2:29 pm
You can undergo aspheric (wavefront optimized) LASIK, either with a microkeratome or with a femtolaser.
See LASIK Costs for the price.

#14 by Ramkumar on November 25, 2011 - 7:41 pm
My wife’s eye sight is -5 for both the eyes, she wants to do lasik. One hospital said an ordinary lasik costs 25k and the special one called optomics (im not sure if the spelling is right) will cost 35k. Which is best and for how many days she should not strain her eyes (like reading, watching tv, driving, any concentration induced work). Many Thanks
#15 by Daisy on December 7, 2011 - 8:40 pm
Please suggest me a good Lasik surgery center in Pune as well as the type of surgery to undergo.

#17 by samir on December 19, 2011 - 3:11 pm
There are many good laser centers in Pune.
Dr. Pravin Gorane/Dr. Nitin Kolte, Pune Laser Clinic is a good option.
Other good options include Dinanath Mangeshkar Eye Hospital, Dr.Jeevan Ladi, NIO.
#18 by samir on December 19, 2011 - 3:13 pm
LASIK should be good for you. The best would be to go for blade free customized LASIK or Blade free wavefront optimized LASIK
#19 by samir on December 19, 2011 - 8:15 pm
I am not sure what you mean by optomics. Usually there is one rate for standard lasik, and another for optimized lasik. Optimized is better than standard. Blade Free or ReLEx SMILE is better than optimized.
She can join work and all normal activities after the first day.

After checking out the FDA sites for different types of Lasik technologies and consulting an ophthalmologist in Navimumbai, it is still unclear about the evolution and latest and best practiced technology worldwide.
Is there any FDA approved equipment which does both femtosecond bladeless surgery using wavefront guided mechanism?
Which one is better among zyoptix wafefront guided custom lasik, Femtosecond Visumax ReLex/Smile or Visx lasik?
My eye power is -1.5 left eye and -2 , Cyl 0.5 vision is 6/6.
I regularly use laptop for around 10 hours a day, therefore my eyes are mildly red always.
#34 by Ahmad on April 24, 2013 - 12:08 pm
I am wearing the sylendrical glasses and my eye sight is weak for long distance.I need your assistant for further process.
#35 by samir on April 24, 2013 - 1:30 pm
Please let me know the location you are in, and perhaps we can guide you forward. In general, cylindrical numbers are not a constraint for LASIK
#36 by samir on April 24, 2013 - 1:44 pm
Sorry for the late reply.
In general, if you are looking for a very safe FDA approved procedure, go for Bladeless LASIK.
You should seek out the doctor you are comfortable with, rather than worry too much about the specific laser or procedure.
#37 by samir on April 24, 2013 - 1:48 pm
There are many good doctors in Pune. Dr. Pravin Gorane, Dr.Bitin Kolte, Dr.Kelkar, Dr. Madhav Bhat, Dr. Jeevan Ladi are all good eye surgeons, who will give you a good result

i have almost -10 power in both my eyes, i am using RGP lens for almost 6 years, i want to do LASIK for my eyes. how much will it cost (minimum to maximum) ? what type will be suitable and tell me some good place for LASIK in Kolkata ?
#39 by Shweta on April 27, 2013 - 12:19 pm
I live in Bangalore and i want to go for LASIK eye correction.
Can ypu pleasesuggest me which procedure should i go for -
EPI-LASIK or Relex SMile Lasik?
1. My cornea thickness is around 552
2. MY eye power is : Left Eye is -.5.75 and Right eye is -5.50
3. I have dry eyez and have been taking “Refresh Tears” Eye drops for
quite some time now. My Schirmer test results are :
– schirmer 1: od 12mm and os 6mm after 5 minutes.
– schirmer 2: od 15mm and os 8 mm after 5 minutes.
Since i have dry eyes, the doctor suggested me to go for Relex Smile procedure.But i have read epi-lasik is also good for dry eyes since in this procedure also there is no corneal flap created.The doctor i consulted in Bangalore said he is not suggesting Epi-Lasik because my Eye power is very close to -6, which is the max limit for epi-lasik.
#40 by sk samirul rahaman on May 1, 2013 - 12:49 pm

My son is 24 years old and working in the IT sector as a system analyst. He wears specks since the age of 8. His power is -10 in both the eyes with combinations of spherical and cylindrical power with varying axis.
Will it be advisible to go for RelEx Smile and if so what are the chances of success and cost.
#42 by samir on June 3, 2013 - 10:55 pm
Yes, he can go for ReLEx smile. The chances of success are very high. You should expect to pay upwards of Rs. 1 lakh. For more details on cost, please see LASIK Cost
#43 by samir on June 3, 2013 - 11:02 pm
Sorry for the late reply. But LASIK recovery takes only a day
#44 by samir on June 3, 2013 - 11:02 pm
You could go for either procedure.
#45 by samir on June 3, 2013 - 11:03 pm
