Saifee Hospital recently launched a state of art Lasik machine to conduct laser eye surgeries exclusively at the hospital. The latest Microscan Visum 500 Excimer machine imported from Russia is installed at Saifee’s Ophthalmology Department. Saifee Hospital is the first hospital in India to procure this state-of-the-art Lasik equipment.
The Microscan Visum 500 Excimer is a user friendly machine with applications such as Advanced Surface Ablation (PRK), Topo-linked Custom Lasik, Wavefront-guided Ablation, Therapeutic PTK and Wavefront-optimized Lasik.
Dr Mehmood Hussein, head, Department of Ophthalmology at Saifee Hospital explained, “With the newly introduced LASIK suite, we are sure to conduct maximum cases each day. The LASIK suite will be fully functional by September 6, 2016 at Saifee Hospital and will be largely used to conduct laser eye surgery to treat near-sightedness, far-sightedness and astigmatism. This is pain-free procedure and usually completed within 15 minutes for both eyes resulting in improved vision. The machine is user friendly and the maintenance is comparatively easier.”
