This allows him to exploit the field of Ophthalmology including ‘Lasik’ surgeries, one of his sub-expertises. Dr Manjal also works in collaboration with FCD (Fortis Clinique Darné) and is conducting surgeries in Mauritius. “I perform the surgeries during my monthly visit to the island, mostly reflective surgeries and Lasik surgeries,” he tells us. Does he plan to set up his own clinic in Mauritius? “Setting up an eye clinic in Mauritius is indeed in my plans but it will take some time. Currently, I enjoy working with Fortis Clinique Darné with the support of local doctors who ensure a very good coordination. My vision is to become a leader in healthcare through clinical excellence and compassionate patient care without compromising ethics of the medical profession,” he shares.

Good To Know What is refractive surgery?

Refractive eye surgery can be defined as any eye surgery that is used to improve the refractive state of the eye and decrease or eliminate dependency on glasses or contact lenses. This can include various methods of surgical remodelling of the cornea or cataract surgery. Refractive surgery is used to describe any of a variety of eye surgeries to correct refractive errors (myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism) and thereby reduce or eliminate a person’s need for eyeglasses or contact lenses. The most popular refractive surgery today is LASIK, a laser vision correction procedure that improves eyesight by reshaping the front surface of the eye with an excimer laser. “LASIK” is an acronym for “laser in situ keratomileusis,” which means “to reshape the living cornea.” What are the benefits of the LASIK treatment?

And who are eligible to undergo LASIK?   The procedure takes around 10-15 minutes for both eyes. Throughout the procedure the patient is awake. Eye drops are the only anesthesia. Sedation is not necessary. Eligibility criteria: • More than 18 years • Corneal thickness should be appropriate • The procedure should be carried out by an experienced surgeon How long does the convalescence take? Most patients are able to return to work within 24 hours & resume all the normal activities. Vision improvement will continue over three or four weeks. After-procedure treatments The laser correction will probably last for the rest of your life. The cornea is a very stable tissue. Current studies show that once the cornea has been modified by the current Excimer laser protocol such as LASIK, it tends to remain stable and stay modified permanently, as best we can determine through studying many thousands of patients. There are rare cases of regression, which may be corrected with further surgery, but the vast majority of corrected eyes remain stable. Post Surgery requirements • Wear sunglasses for 2-3 weeks while going out as direct sunlight has to be avoided. • Avoid water splash in eyes for 2-3 weeks. • Use the eye drops and medicines as prescribed by the Ophthalmologist. • Avoid gym for 2-3 weeks. • Avoid any kind of eye make up for 2-3 weeks
