About the LASIK Technique
Our surgeons use the preferred method of bladeless custom LASIK to correct vision because it is the most technologically advanced of all LASIK eye surgery techniques. Both NASA and the US Air Force and Navy only approve the bladeless LASIK technique for their astronauts, pilots and sailors.
The procedure is also known as “all-laser” LASIK, because it uses two different lasers to safely correct your vision. First, the surgeon uses a femtosecond laser to create a flap to expose the cornea. Next, he or she uses an excimer laser to reshape the cornea to correct refractive error to improve vision. Your cornea is much like your fingerprint or DNA; every eye is unique and, because every patient is unique, we create a customized corneal map unique to your eye to guide the surgeon during the procedure.
Because it is so technologically advanced, the Bladeless Custom LASIK procedure is superior to older and more conventional LASIK techniques that use metal surgical blades called microkeratomes. The advantages are:
- Reduced risk associated with use of a metal blade on the eye surface
- Creation of a thinner and more precise corneal flap
- Greater corneal stability
- Correction of higher levels of refractive error
- Both eyes can be treated in the same surgery session
If for some reason you are not a good candidate for LASIK, our surgeons will explain the reasoning for that decision and discuss other alternatives with you, such as our photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) technique.
Bladeless Custom LASIK offers the safest and most customized vision correction. LASIK eye surgery is quick and painless, a fact that surprises most patients who are expecting a long procedure and painful recovery.
We first numb the eyes with anesthetic drops; patients do not feel any pain during the 15 to 30-minute surgery. Before you go home, we administer additional eye drops, and ask that you rest your eyes as much as possible for the rest of the day. Patients sometimes experience minor irritation like itching, light sensitivity, or dry eye. You can use dry eye drops and try to get as much sleep as possible. We will ask you to return in 48 hours for a follow-up visit to ensure that you are healing properly.
