New Technology to improve Night Vision
New Delhi, July 23 (UNI) Recent studies indicate that each year an estimated 100,000 Lasik procedures are performed in India, with 30 per cent of the Indian adult population reportedly myopic.
The newly launched Zyoptix Aspheric LASIK technology by Bausch&Lomb in India, can now considerably reduce post-operation aberrations or distortions to give patients clearer vision compared to standard Lasik procedures.
India's leading eye specialist and Medical Director Centre For Sight Dr Mahipal Singh Sachdev said, ''this latest technological innovation in eye care management has clinically proven to preserve the shape of the cornea and ensure better night vision.'' Elaborating on the findings of this global clinical study, Dr Chan, a leading ophthalmologist, said that almost 80 per cent of the Indian youth as well as China's are myopic, and this treatment has become very essential keeping in view today's lifestyle.
''We have been doing this treatment in Singapore since the last six months and it has shown successful results,'' adds Dr Chan.
Adding to his comments, Bausch&Lomb Director Ng Yi Kheong said,''the new Zyoptix Aspheric technology will significantly reduce post-Lasik surgery night vision problems for patients prone to these side effects.'' He said, ''We are now working closely with Indian eye hospitals to upgrade their existing Lasik technology to Zyoptix Aspheric.'' This treatment is supposed to cost around Rs 35,000 for both the eyes.
