Topo-guided Lasik, a safe and reliable procedure to get rid of eye wear By Khurram Zia Khan

Pakistan is a country where unfortunately we pass stringent remarks on the physical appearance and dressing of our friends and other people without realizing the fact that these remarks can be painful for the person whom we are targeting. Matters get worse when people search for bride for their brothers and sisters and unfortunately reject a girl on wearing glasses without taking into account the fact that they are rejecting a person not for any of her fault but on something that is not in her control.
Dr. Sharif Hashmani and his team performed first ever Topo- guided Lasik procedure in Pakistan

It will be very difficult to break free from the wrong notions prevailing in our society but we can change ourselves by using advanced medical solutions to permanently get rid of our deficiencies.


Live LASIK Surgery for the first time in Pakistan is performed at Hashamanis hospital

Topo- guided Lasik is the most recent advanced procedure that can help person live his/her life without the hassle of glasses or contact lenses.

LASIK laser eye surgery was developed more than 20 years ago, and more than 40 million eyes have been treated worldwide. Hashmanis Hospital brought this technology to Pakistan in 2004 and to date they have successfully treated over 50,000 eyes. 

Currently, Hashmanis Hospitals is equipped with 3 Lasik machines.

Hashmanis hospital is different from other hospitals because of its high technology equipment, presence of experienced doctor who follow their ethics strictly. At Hasmanis hospital, it is mandatory to carry out pre-operation eye test and if the patient’s eye is not fit for operation, they decline to carry out his/her procedure. On average, Hashmanis decline to carry out procedure of over 30% patients and this is the highest decline ration in Pakistan.

Hashmanis hospital is making a conscious effort to keep itself abreast with the modern technologies so that they can always provide latest treatment to their patients. As part of their commitment to provide latest treatment, Hashmanis recently introduced Topo Guided “Contoura_ Vision LASIK”” for the first time in Pakistan. At the moment, Hashmanis is the only facility to offer this procedure in Pakistan.

In Topo Guided Guided Contours-Vision LASIK ,the built In diagnostic technology is able to meticulously identify and record irregularities in the cornea’s curvature as well as its optics. During LASIK, this information is combined with the patient’s corrective eyewear prescription to dramatically improve vision for those suffering from nearsightedness (myopia) and astigmatism 

I saw this procedure myself when it was performed by Dr. Sharif Hashmani on one of his patient. It is a simple and quick procedure that takes 10 to 15 minutes on each eye. Patient’s eye was anesthesized and her head was positioned under the laser. A corneal flap is created through laser and laser is applied on the target corneal tissue that is the reason of eye defect and the flap is restored. 

Dr. Sharif masterly carried out the procedure which was completed smoothly and minutes after the surgery patient was normal and out of the operation theatre. Best part of this procedure is that it is an outpatient treatment and patient can go home immediately after completion of procedure  

92.6% people can see 6/6 or better, normal vision while 98.4% are of the view that due comfort and accuracy they would have procedure again if required.

Topo Guided Guided Contours-Vision LASIK is customized to condition of eyes, gives sharp and crisp vision, provides greater reading ability, improves light tolerance, is safer and is a definitive way to improve quality of life. 

Dr. Sharif Hashmani introduced this procedure in Pakistan because he wanted more and more people to live an improved life and can see more clearly without any corrective eye wear.  

Dr. Sharif Hashmani has been serving Pakistan for the last 30 years by practicing medicine in the field of eye surgery. What started as his small step to contribute towards the prosperity of Pakistan, has now resulted in an ever achieving mission under the name of Hashmanis.

Established in the year 1981, Hashmanis has successfully developed itself one of the most reputed names in the field of eye care. Launched as an institution keen to integrate the latest advancements in the field of eye care, Hashmanis is credited to introduce IOL in Pakistan in the year 1982 and then later introducing Phacoemulsification in the year 1995. Through Phacoemulsification, it was able to remove Cataract through small incisions without the need of any stitches.
