What is laser eye surgery?
Laser eye surgery (also called refractive surgery or laser vision correction) involves reshaping the cornea to correct common vision problems including nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. As a specialist in the surgical treatment of the cornea, Dr Gupta is pleased to offer laser vision correction at a cost most patients find very reasonable.
As an accomplished eye surgeon, Dr Gupta uses latest generation technology and techniques to bring his patients the best results when it comes to laser eye surgery. Skilled in both popular surgical methods – PRK and LASIK – Dr Gupta tends towards PRK since it provides the same effective, safe and reliable results without affecting the structural integrity of the cornea. For patients at risk of being knocked post-surgery (e.g. parents, sportspeople, police personnel), PRK’s flapless technique can be the best choice. There is no difference in long term visual outcome from either procedure.
