Dr. Gulani was among the First in the World to be exposed to the LASIK laser internationally in the early 1990s and involved in early clinical trials years before FDA approval in the USA.
While LASIK surgeons in the USA started performing LASIK surgery in 1995, Dr. Gulani had already become a Lasik instructor for surgeons and invented award winning instruments.
For over three decades as a pioneer of laser vision surgery Dr. Gulani has experienced every technique and technology often beyond other eye surgeons with his international privilege. His signature style of going beyond “cookie-cutter” underscores his Art to best fit your unique eyes but also to develop the best vision he can no matter how simple or complex your case. Dedicatedly continuing to evolve his techniques given his passion to make people see, Dr. Gulani has raised LASIK surgery to NexGen LASIK™
Further, Dr.Gulani teaches NexGen LASIK™ options as:
- Technological: Blade Vs Laser Flaps
- Anatomical: Thin Flap Lasik, Hinge Axis placement, Stromal modification.
- Laser Application: Ablation zone size, peripheral feathering, Energy & Frequency modifications with crossed cylinder applications
Since the curvature or shape of your cornea (front clear window of your eye) decides, in most cases, whether you are nearsighted (steep curvature), farsighted (flat curvature) or have astigmatism (football shape as opposed to a basketball shape), Dr. Gulani goes beyond Lasik surgery by providing a full range of treatments to reshape the cornea using an invisible, painless, highly accurate and computerized Laser. The entire range of procedures to re-shape the cornea using a painless and cold, 160nm Excimer Laser is called Laser Vision Surgery.
Generally, Lasik surgery involves making a flap in the cornea, like a page in a book, and then reshaping the underlying cornea with a laser. The flap can be made with a blade or a laser, and can be of different thickness or size depending on what is best for your eyes.
While most surgeons perform only Lasik, Dr. Gulani performs LASIK Surgery as an ART among a full range of over 20 Laser Vision Techniques including technology combinations. He is committed to ensure that his patients clearly understand the underlying logic behind his approach to Laser Vision Surgery and not be confused about all the hype around a “One Size Fits All” LASIK.
After a detailed personal consultation with Dr. Gulani, he shall then decide on technique and technology to best fit your individual eye.
