iLASIK

We believe in using only the safest and most advanced technology, this is why our doctors only preform all-laser LASIK. Unlike traditional LASIK, which uses a blade to create a flap on the cornea, iLASIK uses an extremely precise ifs laser to preform this step. Then, the excimer laser utilizes topo-integrated wavefront guided technology to preform custom correction.

PRK

PRK stands for "photorefractive keratectomy." It is a type of laser vision correction that utilizes a different technique to prep the cornea that does not require the creation of a flap. The results are similar to that of traditional LASIK, but the healing time is extended slightly. A small percentage of our patients prefer this method due to personal or professional reasons.

iLASIK FOR READING

The natural aging process of the eye creates a condition called presbyopia. Presbyopia causes the unfortunate and inevitable need for reading glasses or bifocals. Mono-vision is a popular solution to this common problem. Mono-vision is a procedure that utilizes iLASIK to greatly reduces or eliminates reliance on reading lenses by correcting one eye for distance and the other for reading.

FAQs ABOUT LASIK

Three Easy Steps to Your Best Vision 

1. LASIK Pre-Exam

At this comprehensive exam we use the most advanced topo-integrated scans to determine if you are a good candidate for LASIK. To ensure that we are providing the most accurate correction this exam is valid toward surgery for 90 days. If you choose not to proceed with corrective surgery we can provide a prescription for glasses and/or contact lenses.

2. LASIK Surgery

LASIK is a simple two step procedure that takes about 15 minutes to preform. Before the procedure begins, you will be given eye drops to numb your eyes. While you relax on the treatment bed, your eyelids are gently held open with a gentle soft silicone ring. In a few seconds the femtosecond laser will create a thin precise flap, in less that a minute you are ready for the second step. During the second step the excimer laser will use top-integrated wavefront guided technology to reshape your corneal contour. After surgery, you will notice improvement within a few hours. Most patients usually return to normal activities the very next day.

3. Post-Operative

There are four post-op appointments included in your LASIK package. The appointments should be scheduled as follows: 1-day, 1-week, 1-month, and 3-month.
