See More Clearly with Advanced LASIK Eye Surgery Treatments
Nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), astigmatism, and presbyopia are all examples of refractive errors. Until recently, the only treatments for these bothersome or even debilitating vision problems were glasses and contacts. We now have LASIK, which is a customized, long-lasting way to correct your vision. The future of clear, healthy vision has arrived!
What Is LASIK Eye Surgery?
LASIK eye surgery is a minimally invasive medical procedure that alters the shape of the cornea to refocus light so that it reaches the macula, the retina's center in the back of the eye. The clear window at the front of your eye, the cornea, is responsible for how light refracts into your eye. It is usually done as an outpatient procedure, and most patients can return to school or work within a few days.

How LASIK Works
A special laser is programmed with your prescription and removes microscopic amounts of corneal tissue during LASIK surgery to create the ideal surface for clear vision. To make you more comfortable with the surgery, your surgeon will first apply numbing drops to your eyes and administer a mild sedative. A special device will keep your eyes open and prevent you from blinking during the procedure.
Before starting the laser, your surgeon will either remove or lift the corneal epithelium, which is the outermost layer of the cornea. This tissue regenerates very quickly. If your surgeon uses the PRK (PhotoRefractive Keratectomy) technique, the epithelium will be gently "scrubbed" from the surface of your cornea with a soft brush or sponge. Alternatively, your surgeon can make a circular flap in the cornea's outer layer, which can then be lifted and replaced. A bladeless laser or a microkeratome can be used to create this flap.
Finally, the surgeon will operate the laser to ablate your cornea into the desired shape. This is painless and once complete, your surgeon will replace the flap or if you had PRK, use a bandage contact lens to protect your cornea.
What Is Custom LASIK Eye Surgery?
Custom LASIK eye surgery is identical to traditional LASIK in nature, with the exception of how accurately a patient's prescription can be programmed into the laser. Custom LASIK allows our surgeon to customize your LASIK prescription in 0.1 diopter increments instead of 0.25 diopter increments for the sharpest possible vision.
