LASIK

Laser Vision Correction

Laser vision correction refers to a group of minimally invasive procedures that reshape the cornea with laser energy to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism, leaving patients with better vision after treatment. These procedures are customized to provide the best possible results for each individual, and allow the surgeon to correct the very specific refractive errors that obscure your vision.

Laser vision correction procedures help patients eliminate the need for eyeglasses and contact lenses, a costly and bothersome hassle that millions of people deal with everyday. By reshaping the cornea, these procedures change the way that the eye focuses light, allowing you to enjoy clear vision.

There are several different laser vision correction procedures available to help patients achieve clear vision without glasses or contacts. Please call us today to schedule a consultation with one of our doctors to figure out which procedure is best for you.

LASIK

Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis (LASIK) is a safe, reliable and painless way to improve vision by changing the way light is bent, or refracted, as it passes through the cornea, so that it properly focuses on the retina and allows objects to be seen clearly.

During the blade-free LASIK procedure, the surgeon creates a thin flap on the surface of the cornea with a device called a femtosecond laser. This procedure is performed under local anesthesia so that pain is minimized. The corneal flap is then lifted and an excimer laser beam reshapes the cornea’s curvature to improve vision. Finally, the flap is replaced. The entire procedure takes about 15 to 30 minutes per eye.

The ideal LASIK candidate includes someone who is over 18 years old, has stable vision and has a healthy cornea that is thick enough for a flap. After undergoing the procedure, patients experience immediate vision improvement and can often return to work the very next day.
