Our LASIK Surgery Team
Adam J. Altman, MD, Jonathan D. Primack, MD and our Lebanon office LASIK specialist, Kevin J. Shah, MD, are among the very best LASIK surgeons in Pennsylvania. They are board certified and cornea fellowship-trained specialists who have a combined 45+ years of experience and have successfully treated thousands of patients.
Fellowship-trained doctors go through extensive additional training under the guidance of experts in the field of corneal and refractive surgery. This extra training focuses on the highest standards of care.
Drs. Altman, Primack and Shah prefer the Bladeless Custom LASIK technique, also called “all-laser” LASIK, and the PRK technique, which is recommended for individuals who are not optimal candidates for LASIK.
LASIK and PRK modify the curvature of your cornea using cool laser beams instead of a surgical blade. Both procedures utilize Custom Wavefront Technology, the most technologically advanced way to restore your vision, and produce identical visual results.
What is Bladeless Custom LASIK?
This state-of-the-art procedure is our preferred method of laser vision correction for the majority of patients. The technique involves two lasers: a femtosecond laser, which safely and painlessly creates a corneal flap by means of infrared laser energy instead of a metal blade, and an excimer laser, which reshapes the cornea to correct the refractive error (glasses / contact lenses prescription).
LASIK eye surgery is quick and painless. The surgeon will numb your eyes with anesthetic eye drops, and you will not feel any discomfort. The device that is used to cushion your eyelids during surgery (called a speculum) and the clicking sound of the laser may be more annoying than anything else. Some people feel a little pressure during the 15 to 30-minute surgery, but there is never any pain.
During surgery, a thin flap in the cornea is made using a femtosecond laser. The flap is then folded back, and the corneal tissue is reshaped using an excimer laser. This will improve the cornea’s ability to focus light onto the retina and improve your vision. The corneal flap is then placed back into its correct position, and the surgery is complete.
LASIK surgery restores vision in nearly every patient, but the procedure does not change the normal age-related problems that may arise years down the road. Most people, including LASIK patients, will require reading glasses after the age of 50, and some people will develop cataracts as they age. Regular checkups with your eye doctor can help diagnose and treat these age-related eye problems early.
Are you a good candidate for LASIK?
Not every individual is a good candidate for LASIK eye surgery. Every eye is unique, and corneas are just as distinctive as fingerprints or DNA. When you decide to proceed with surgery, you will undergo a comprehensive evaluation of your eyes to test for corneal thickness, pupil size, refractive error, astigmatism, etc., and the surgeon will make a final determination about your candidacy for LASIK surgery.
