 New Method of Vision Correction Launched in New Delhi

A new method for complete vision correction that is both quick and ablation-free has been launched in the national capital for those who wear glasses and have been refused Lasik surgery for sight correction.

The Refractive Lenticule Extraction (ReLEx) method, which was launched in the national capital Friday by Centre for Sight, is an advanced version of Lasik techniques for complete with a flapless and 100 percent bladeless technique of vision correction.

"Unlike Lasik, which uses two lasers and vapourises the corneal tissue to correct vision, ReLEx uses only one laser for the entire procedure," said Mahipal S. Sachdev, chairman and medical director, Centre for Sight.

Instead of vapourising the unwanted tissue, the new generation laser used in ReLEx simply cuts out a lens-shaped piece of corneal tissue to correct the myopia. The tissue is extracted through a keyhole incision. This means more accurate vision correction and less discomfort during and after surgery.

"There are several additional benefits due to the small incision that ReLEx offers. Since there is no flap, flap displacements and flap complications cannot occur. The small incision heals relatively quickly, leading to less patient discomfort after the procedure," said Ritika Sachdev, additional director, medical services, Centre for Sight.
