Q. Is there a temporary loss of vision i.e. blackout during the procedure?

Ans.    When instruments come in and out of your vision, at times you do not see the green light we ask you to   focus on. When the microkeratome is also applied for a few seconds you cannot see the focus light.

‘Black out’ sounds more like unconsciousness which it is not. In our centre the procedure is very smooth and   soothing. There are no shocks or surprises. Dr Shroff is in conversation with you throughout to make you feel comfortable during the process.
