LASIK- Refractive Surgery
Your road to clearer, sharper vision
Our skillful surgeons use the latest refractive technologies and surgical techniques to help patients experiencing refractive conditions such as farsightedness, nearsightedness and/or astigmatism. Refractive surgery results in many of our patients being able to greatly improve their vision and eliminate or reduce their dependence on glasses and contact lenses.
There are several other types of refractive vision correction procedures available. We offer the following laser vision correction treatments:
LASIK- No more hiding behind glasses
LASIK is one of the most popular refractive treatment options.
Is LASIK the right decision for me?
When it comes to vision correction, one size does not fit all. While many people are excellent candidates for LASIK surgery, this procedure is not for everyone. Since every patient’s situation is unique, only a thorough evaluation can determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure. The ideal LASIK candidate is an adult with generally healthy eyes and a stable glasses or contact lens prescription. If you have certain eye conditions, such as dry eye, LASIK may still be an option if the condition is controlled prior to the procedure. Schedule a consultation to learn more!
All-Laser LASIK– The gentle way to restore sharp vision
All-laser LASIK, also known as iLASIK or ZLASIK, depending on the laser used, is the method of choice when it comes to accurate, safe, and comfortable laser refractive procedures. All-laser LASIK corrects vision using a laser from the beginning to the end of the procedure. No scalpel touches the eyes. This is the most technologically advanced laser vision correction procedure available.
PRK- (Photorefractive Keratectomy) Discover freedom with your eyesight
PRK is very similar to LASIK, but there are considerable differences in the two procedures.
LASIK VS PRK: Discover what’s best for you
- There is no flap created in PRK treatment like LASIK
- Surgeons completely remove the epithelium (surface tissue of the cornea) in PRK
- PRK vision improvement is more gradual than LASIK
- 95 percent of all PRK patients are able to see at least 20/40 without glasses or contact lenses
Some patients who do not qualify for LASIK can be treated effectively with the PRK procedure.
