LASIK Surgery for Vision Correction
LASIK surgery can successfully restore vision in nearly every patient. We use Bladeless Custom LASIK, a state-of-the-art technique that is safer and more precise than older forms of LASIK. This technique involves two lasers. A femtosecond laser is first used to create a flap to expose the cornea. Next, surgeons reshape the cornea using an excimer laser to correct the refractive error and improve vision. With bladeless LASIK, we are able to correct a much wider array of vision problems.
Laser surgeries are popular for either initial glaucoma treatment or as an intermediate step between medications and traditional surgery. For open-angle glaucoma, the most common laser surgery is trabeculoplasty. In this painless and quick procedure, the doctor uses a laser beam to make small changes in the eye’s drainage system to allow fluid to flow more easily and reduce the intraocular pressure. When medications and laser surgeries are unsuccessful at lowering eye pressure, your doctor may recommend traditional surgery. The most common procedure is called a trabeculectomy, sometimes called filtration surgery, which is used in both open-angle and closed-angle glaucoma.
Macular Degeneration Surgery
Currently, there is no form of medical treatment or surgery for dry AMD that can prevent vision loss. The more serious, and less common, wet form of AMD can be treated with laser surgery, photodynamic therapy (PDT) with or without injection of steroids into the eye, or the painless injection of drugs that attempt to stop abnormal blood vessel growth in the retina. However, the disease and loss of vision may still progress even with treatment.
