More about LASIK
LASIK is short for laser in situ keratomileusis surgery. The procedure is the most commonly performed eye surgery today, and it is a good option for the majority of patients we see. LASIK can correct several types of vision problems including nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism. The procedure has advanced in the last few years and we are now able to correct much higher levels of refractive error. Many of our patients are able to reduce dependency on or even eliminate glasses and contact lenses altogether.
There are several LASIK techniques, but our surgeons prefer bladeless or all-laser LASIK. More patients are able to be candidates when we use this procedure. The lasers provide precision surgery that requires no stitches and patients have a much faster recovery.
The lasers we use are cool pulses of light from a femtosecond laser. The surgeon uses these laser pulses to correct refractive error to effectively to reshape the cornea, thus correcting vision. Prior to the surgery, our team creates a customized corneal map that the surgeon uses as a reshaping guide during the surgery.
The vast majority of patients are good surgical candidates. People who have certain pre-existing eye diseases or certain health conditions may not be candidates, but we do perform other vision correction surgeries that may be options for you. If you are not sure whether you are a candidate, come see us for an initial consultation. Our team will perform a thorough eye exam and health evaluation to determine whether you are a good surgical candidate.
