Earthquake During Lasik Eye Surgery

  • 2 min read

It appears that even more frequently than ever before we are seeing reports of natural disasters disturbing the day to day lives of people all over the world. Can you imagine how you would respond if an earthquake or other natural disaster hit your home, job, or a place you are visiting? Depending upon where you are, and which type of advanced warning is readily available, your level of preparedness will vary accordingly.

Our qualified team of surgeons are completely aware that the eye moves sixty times per second and are prepared for these events throughout your surgical treatment. Dr. Khanna claims that the anxiety associated with blinking through the procedure is needless.

Throughout your surgical procedure, your eye is held open by what we call a retractor. This retractor does not cause an discomfort or pain. The laser has an automatic eye tracker which will follow the eye as it makes small movements. If the eye starts to make any rapid movements, the laser will automatically switch off and start once again as soon as the eye stops. We can also turn the laser off by hand at any time.

The concern about some sort of tragedy happening due to eye movement is literally nonexistent. The beauty of science and this Lasik technology is that even if you sneezed, coughed, blinked, fell off the bed, or endured an earthquake, you would be able to get right back to your surgery! The laser would proceed to remodel the eye, as if nothing had happened, because of the built-in technology. This is why the most modern and up to date lasers are the best to use.

Your safety and satisfaction are our top priorities, and we intend to make certain that you have all of the information you need prior to your surgery date. People experience much less glare than they had prior to LASIK surgery and vision correction results are really excellent!

For more information about LASIK, you can schedule a visit with Dr. Rajesh Khanna, MD and his staff at their office, Khanna Vision Institute in Westlake Village or Beverly Hills, California. We will assist you in answering all your questions about Lasik eye surgery.
