Zyoptix brings Advanced version of Lasik in Kolkata, India

The latest in vision correction technique is now available in the city. Superseding LASIK (Laser in Situ Keratomileusis) comes the Zyoptix — a more advanced version of LASIK — which can cure not only refractive errors in the eye, but also optical aberrations. Himalaya Vision Care Centre (HVCC) is pioneering this technique in Eastern India.

Zyoptix allows the optician to examine each eye for previously undetected problems like aberrations, and thereby customise the treatment for not only each individual but for each eye as well. ‘’Zyoptix will allow us customise the treatment for each individual’s unique problems,’’ explained Dr Ajanta Sinha, an optician with the HVCC.

Such customised corneal correction will be available for patients at the cost of Rs 26,000 for both eyes. However, according to opticians, not all are eligible for such treatment.

Zyoptix is also risk free for patients. Dr Divyesh P Shah, another optician with HVCC, explained, ‘’It is a completely safe procedure. But this procedure can cure only distance vision in individuals above the age of 40. For reading purposes, they will continue to need spectacles.’’

The new project has cost Himalaya Vision Care Centre Rs 1.8 crores. With this new vision correction technology, the company expects a payback in approximately four years.

    Cost of the Lasik treatment by Zyoptix 100 is around Rs.35,000.
    Regular Lasik Treatment (not in Z-100) will be about Rs 22,000.

  3. Angsuman Chakraborty Says:

    It is hard to say which one is better. As for surgical procedures IntraLase is better than normal LASIK because of greater accuracy (with laser) in creating the flap.

    You need to contact your opthalmologist for this. We do not provide specific medical advice.

    Why isnt that Himalaya Opticals at Bowbazer & Rashbehari Avenue doesnt have an e-mail ID of themselves.
