Reasons to Consider LASIK
Dramatic advances in laser technologies and surgery techniques have made it possible to reduce your dependency upon glasses or contacts, and LASIK is the most technologically advanced option. The benefits include:
- 96% of patients experience significantly improved vision
- Vision improves almost immediately
- The procedure is painless
- No bandages or stitches are necessary
- Enhancements can be made after the initial procedure
- Less dependence on glasses or contact lenses after surgery
- Risk of complications is very low
What is “Bladeless” or “All Laser” 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).
Bladeless Custom LASIK offers several important advantages compared to the older LASIK technique that uses a metal blade:
- It reduces the risks associated with passing a metal blade through the surface of the eye.
- The precise flap is thinner and allows for greater corneal stability and higher levels of correction.
- It allows both eyes to be treated in the same surgery session, one following the other.
Drs. Primack, Altman and Shah are the most experienced refractive surgeons in Berks County with Bladeless LASIK and perform the procedure on-site in the safety and comfort of their on-site laser suite in our fully licensed Wyomissing surgery center.
How Long Does LASIK Surgery Last?
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.
