More about LASIK
LASIK is short for laser in situ keratomileusis surgery and is the most frequently performed eye surgery today. LASIK is a good option for the majority of our patients. We can correct several types of vision problems including nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism. We inform our patients about the recent years’ advancements in LASIK that now allow our surgeons to correct much higher levels of refractive error – so much so that many of our patients are able to ditch their glasses and contact lenses altogether.
While there are several LASIK techniques, our surgeons prefer the bladeless all-laser LASIK technique. First of all, more patients are candidates for this particular procedure. Second, the lasers provide such a precision surgery that no stitches are required, and patients recover much faster.
All-laser LASIK uses a femtosecond laser to create the initial corneal incision, and pulses from an excimer laser to do corneal reshaping to correct vision. This LASIK is performed using a customized map of your cornea as a surgical guide.
The procedure has great results with most patients achieving 20/25 (or better) vision. With over 40 million LASIK procedures performed worldwide, there is lots of data to show that the procedure is not only safe but effective. Doctors and researchers have published over 7,000 clinical studies, making LASIK one of the most studied procedures in the world.
LASIK surgery itself has a good track record of safety and efficacy; the procedure has very few side effects. If there are side effects, they are minor, such as temporary dry eye. Your particular result will depend largely on the amount of refractive error we are correcting. For example, patients with a high degree of nearsightedness or farsightedness have good results, but they are less predictable prior to surgery.
