Choose your surgeon and technology wisely. Most important is to find out if LASIK is safe for you. Anyone who is considering LASIK should take the time to fully understand the procedure and evaluate its risks and benefits for themselves and not in general.

The WaveLight 500 Hz Laser at Shroff Eye LASIK centre in Mumbai, India, is a laser that provides the doctor and the patient the highest level of safety, accuracy and reliability in LASIK, allowing the doctor to truly customize and offer a treatment that is ideally adjusted to the individual needs of the patient.

The WaveLight 500 Hz Laser saves upto 40% of valuable corneal tissue for every dioptre of treatment when compared with some other lasers. This results in the doctor being able to treat a higher power range keeping in mind long-term safety as well as treating lower powers with unmatched stability.

Comparison of FDA Approved Lasers

FDA

Superior performance as compared to other lasers used in India today and comparable to the best available worldwide.

The laser we use is the 500 Hz, more advanced than the one compared above, thus providing you with the highest level of safety, accuracy and reliability worldwide in LASIK.

The graph shows that as refractive errors [spectacle errors] climb higher, the performance of most lasers falls. The Wavelight laser can treat higher numbers with far more accuracy and predictability. The above comparison was an early study in 2003, today we are using a far more advanced laser system – WaveLight 500 Hz.
