Why LASIK is better than contact lens

  1. Happier eyes- Contact lenses can deteriorate or be the cause of many eye problems such as red, itchy, sore, dry eyes or allergies. Eyes can, eventually, become intolerant to contact lenses which results in the inability to wear them.   Extended contact lens usage is also associated with a number of risks
  2. Night Vision- Most LASIK patients say that their main motivation for undergoing LASIK was to gain the ability to see adequately in the middle of the night. The capability to see your surroundings in the dark is a luxury to many eyeglass or contact lens wearers who are tired of stumbling blindly through the dark to the bathroom at 3 a.m.
  3. Sports- Sports, especially water sports are constantly a threat for contact lens wearers. Eye protection such as goggles are frequently needed in order to avoid losing contacts but they can be cumbersome, awkward and impractical for certain activities.  After having LASIK, you will be able to take part in any sport without worry.
  4. Worry-free– There is the constant threat of losing a contact lens and experiencing a sudden decrease in vision. This can be troublesome when watching television or exercising but can be extremely hazardous when driving a car.
  5. Easier traveling- Traveling with contact lenses and all accessories that go along with them is, without a doubt, an added burden. Packing an adequate amount of cleaning fluid, rewetting eye drops, spare contact lenses and cases can consume a considerable amount of space in your luggage.  Also, there is always the chance of losing or tearing your contact which will leave you unable to see clearly.
  6. Better vision– Many patients are delighted to discover that their vision is actually better after LASIK than it was with their best pair of glasses or contact lenses. This is due to the inability for contacts to correct vision in the same way that LASIK does.
  7. Financial benefits- Initially, LASIK can appear quite costly but, when all costs are factored in, LASIK actually is more of an economical solution to correcting vision issues long term. When the cost of contact lenses is figured over a period of time, it is easy to see how fast the price tag can build.  In fact, continuing with contacts as an alternative to undergoing a permanent vision-correcting solution such as LASIK has been precisely compared to renting instead of purchasing a house.  Effectively, you are throwing money into something every month without reaping the benefits of a long-term investment.

The eye’s lens is a transparent structure that focuses images on the light-sensitive retina. Cataracts  is a medical condition in which lens becomes progressively opaque resulting in blurred vision. They occur when certain proteins in the lens form abnormal clumps. These clumps gradually get larger and interfere with vision. They distort or block the passage of light through the lens. “Cataract” means “huge waterfall” or “enormous downpour,” which is how some people describe their clouded sight, like trying to look through a waterfall.


In  many cases, cataracts are age-related. In other cases, cataracts may be caused by eye trauma, long-term diabetes, corticosteroid medications, or radiation treatments.


Once symptoms of cataracts develop, they can include: Cloudy or blurry vision, Double vision (diplopia),Colors appear faded, Seeing halos around lights, Increased sensitivity to glare.

Diabetes mellitus is a disease which disturbs the body metabolism resulting in the high blood sugar levels.It is known for causing many types of issues in the different parts of the human body and eyes are one of them.

What is diabetic eye disease?

Diabetic eye disease refers to a group of eye problems that affect people with diabetes. All can cause severe vision loss or even blindness.

Diabetic eye disease includes:

  • Diabetic retinopathy: Damage to the blood vessels in the light-sensitive tissue called the retina. It is the most common cause of vision loss among people with diabetes and the leading cause of vision impairment and blindness among
    working-age adults.
  • Diabetic macular edema (DME). DME is swelling in an area of the retina called the macula. It is a consequence of diabetic retinopathy.
  • Cataract: Clouding of the lens of the eye. Adults with diabetes are 2-5 times more likely to develop cataract and earlier in life than those without diabetes.
  • Glaucoma: Increase in fluid pressure inside the eye that leads to optic nerve damage and loss of vision. Diabetes nearly doubles the risk of glaucoma in adults.    

What is the most common Diabetic eye disease?

Diabetic retinopathy. This disease is a leading cause of blindness in Indians suffering from diabetes. Chronically high blood sugar from diabetes is associated with damage to the tiny blood vessels in the retina. Diabetic retinopathy can cause blood vessels in the
retina to leak fluid or hemorrhage (bleed), distorting vision. In its most advanced stage, new abnormal blood vessel sproliferate (increase in number) on the surface of the retina, which can lead to scarring and cell loss in the retina. These changes may result
in vision loss or blindness.

Diabetic retinopathy may progress through four stages:

  1. Mild non-proliferative retinopathy.
  2. Moderate non-proliferative retinopathy.
  3. Severe non-proliferative retinopathy.
  4. Proliferative diabetic retinopathy(PDR).

What are its symptoms?

There are often no symptoms in the early stages of diabetic retinopathy. This symptom less progression is why regular eye examinations for people with diabetes are so very important.

Warning Symptoms:

  • Distorted/blurred/doubling of vision
  • Difficulty in reading.
  •  Floaters or spots in your vision.
  • Sudden partial or total loss of vision or a shadow or veil across your field of

How is it detected and treated?

If you have diabetes, you should get your eyes examined at least once a year by a Retina specialist. Your eyes need to be dilated during the examination which allows the eye care professional to see more of the inside of your eyes to check for signs of
the disease. The choice of treatment depends on the stage of the disease, age of the patient and the
recommendations of you Retinaspecialist. Treatment options for Diabetic retinopathy can range from regular follow up to
interventions like Laser photo coagulation, Intravitreal injections and Vitrectomy. Many patients have improved vision after vitrectomy.

Can diabetic retinopathy be prevented?
Not totally,but your risk can be greatly reduced. The Diabetes Control and Complications Trial (DCCT) showed that better control of blood sugar levels lows the on set and progression of retinopathy and lessens the need for laser surgery for
severe retinopathy.

What can you do to protect your vision?
The best way to control diabetic eye disease is treating the disease early, before it causes vision loss or blindness. So if you or your near dear ones are suffering from the disease, make sure you get a comprehensive dilated eye examination at least once
a year.

Diabetes is a disease that can cause very serious health problems. If you have diabetes:

  1. Know your ABCs: A1C (blood glucose), blood pressure (BP), and
    cholesterol numbers.
  2. Take your medicines as prescribed by your doctor.
