Imagine life without contacts or glasses. You can see clearly in bright, vibrant color. You no longer have to squint. Activities like hiking, biking, swimming, tennis and golf are much more convenient because you don’t have to worry about losing a contact lens or your glasses sliding down your nose. For many, LASIK is helping people become less dependent on contacts and glasses.

However, while LASIK can be an amazing procedure, your deci- sion on where to go should not be made lightly. The surgeon you choose can mean the difference between excellent results or real complications. At Tej Eye Center, thousands of people from all over the world have trusted their eyes to us.

Since 2000, Tej Eye Center has been performing refractive surgery. Dr. Tejal Dalal, M.S., an ophthalmic surgeon, is the Founder and Medical Director of Tej Eye Center and is a renowned leader in refractive surgery. She is a member of American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS) and Trusted by many families for our advanced Bladeless LASIK and customized refractive Cataract Surgery.

She has more than 20 years experience in vision care and has performed many of procedures ranging from LASIK, Iris registration and cutomvue lasik and now a days many more BLADLESS laser surgery. In fact, Tej Eye Center has an international reputation with patients coming from abroad specially for Bladless LASIK

As you consider whether to have LASIK, you can rely on us to be there every step of the way, making the process comfortable— and above all, successful. We look forward to helping you see life’s possibilities!


  • Candidates who are nearsighted, farsighted and those with astigmatism may be candidates for LASIK.
  • LASIK Technology is safe and proven.
  • The LASIK procedure is fast and simple.

Bladeless LASIK has the “Right stuff” for astronauts

NASA Approves Bladeless LASIK FOR Astronauts

NASA has approved bladeless technologies for use on U.S astronauts. The NASA decision was made following review of extensive military clinical data, which showed the combination of femtosecond laser for LASIK flap creation and wavefront guided excimer laser for corneal sculpting provides superior safety and vision.

Understanding Refractive errors

Clear vision

Clear vision in the normal eye is the result of light rays passing through the cornea, pupil and lens and focusing directly on the retina.

Nearsightedness (Myopia)

Nearsightedness (Myopia) occurs when the cornea is too curved or the eye is too long. This causes light to focus in front of the retina, resulting in blurry distance vision.

Lasik Eye
Farsightedness (Hypermetropia)

Farsightedness (Hyperopia) occurs when the cornea is too flat in relation to the length of the eye. This causes light to focus at a point beyond the retina, resulting in blurry close vision


Astigmatism occurs when the cornea is shaped like a football (more curved in one direction than the other) and often occurs with nearsightedness and farsightedness. This causes light to focus in more than one point on the retina, resulting in blurry and distorted vision.

Types of LASIK Surgery

In traditional LASIK, a surgeon uses a microkeratome blade—a small specially designed ophthalmic device—to cut a flap into the cornea, the clear part at the very front of the eye. The flap is then lifted to allow lasers to reshape cornea, correcting the patient’s vision. This may sound frightening, but discomfort during the surgery is minimal.

In “Traditional LASIK,” a handheld mechanical device called a microkeratome uses a metal blade to cut in to the surface of the eye to create a flap while In bladless LASIK the metal blade is replaced with a laser called Intralase. Laser creates the flap in the first step of the procedure, 100% with the safety and accuracy of computer controlled, cold beam lasers. This is a much safer and more predictable approach to laser vision correction.

PRK fell out of popularity to some extent when LASIK was created, however, it has experienced somewhat of a resurgence in recent years. Many doctors now prefer PRK to LASIK for specific kinds of patients.

Rather than creating a flap in the surface of the eye and reshaping the corneal tissue underneath, PRK involves reshaping the cornea directly from the outside. One major disadvantage to PRK is that the patient does experience a Kind of discomfort with require more recovery time. PRK is another option that is preferable for patients with thin corneas. It also eliminates the risk of flap-related complications.


1. Advanced Wavefront-Guided LASIK

Wavefront-Guided LASIK uses detailed measurements of how light waves travel through your eye to create a laser treatment that is completely personalized for your eye anatomy and vision needs. For the customvue treatment we capture a fingerprint of your vision, which is then transferred to the laser allowing us to correct minute details in your vision that glasses or contacts can not. With advanced wavefront guided LASIK , 20/20 Vision or better is now possible, with out glasses or contacts, improved night vision and reduced side effects such as halos and glare.

2. Active eye tracking

With active eye tracking with an excellent response time supported by adaptive sensor, this advanced technology maps points on the iris and focuses the laser using those points. This creates a more individualized adjustment that in turn, further improves and enhances the quality of your laser vision correction treatment



The biggest difference between traditional LASIK and bladeless LASIK involves whether any blades are used in the procedure. In bladeless LASIK, even the initial cut into the cornea is made with a laser, this allows for more precision and shorter healing time, although in traditional LASIK, the microkeratome is automated too, so there is much less chance of surgeon error. The laser used to create the corneal flap is called a femtosecond laser.

Typically, anyone who qualifies for traditional LASIK can undergo bladeless LASIK. This procedure has been available in the United States since 2001 when it was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) after being submitted by a company named IntraLase. Often, bladeless LASIK is called IntraLASIK or IntraLase LASIK; however, since the technology was acquired by Abbott Medical Optics (AMO) in 2007, several other versions of this all-laser procedure have proliferated.

  • More predictable and uniform corneal flaps, which improves healing.
  • Decreased risk of corneal abrasions during the procedure.
  • Decreased risk of accidentally induced astigmatism after the procedure.
  • Safe and secure

During your pre-operative exam and consultation, our eye doctor will determine which type of LASIK is best suited to your physiology and needs.

  • Myth: Everyone is a candidate for Lasik.
    Fact: Some patients don’t qualify for LASIK eye surgery. LASIK is not the best option for patients with thin or irregular corneas, eye diseases or eye virus.
  • Myth: LASIK is painful.
    Fact: LASIK eye surgery is painless. Anesthetic drops are used to numb the eye during the procedure.
  • Myth:LASIK can cause blindness.
    Fact: There have been no confirmed cases of LASIK blinding anyone.
  • Myth:The laser can burn your eyes
    Fact: All laser eye surgeries, including LASIK use ‘cold’ lasers that will not burn the surface of the eye
  • Myth: Long-term side effects of LASIK have yet to be found.
    Fact: Laser eye surgery was first developed in the early 1980s. since then, no long term side effects of the procedure have been documented,
