Do you dream about seeing clearly without glasses or contacts?
Learn About LASIK
LASIK, or (Laser-Assisted-In-Situ Keratomileusis) has helped millions of people worldwide to dramatically improve their vision without eyeglasses or contact lenses. It is a highly effective outpatient procedure that is suitable for most low, moderate and higher prescriptions. LASIK uses a cool beam of light from the an excimer laser to gently reshape the front surface (cornea) of your eye.
What is Custom LASIK?
Custom LASIK allows an eye surgeon to customize the conventional LASIK procedure to your unique eyes. This customized LASIK can result in patients seeing clearer and sharper than ever before. FDA studies show that Custom LASIK may produce better vision than is possible with contact lenses or glasses.
What is Bladeless LASIK?
LASIK and Custom LASIK requires a flap of corneal tissue to be created with a micokeratome and folded back to allow the eximer laser to reshape the eye. In Bladeless LASIK procedures, the surgeon uses a laser to create the corneal flap. This Bladeless method allows the surgeon to customize the corneal flap for every individual patient. Studies by IntraLase have shown that Bladeless technology may make it possible to treat patients who were previously denied LASIK due to having thinner corneas.
Is LASIK Right for Me?
In most cases, LASIK can treat the most severe degrees of nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. LASIK is not right for everyone. Candidates must have realistic expectations about their results. Potential candidates for LASIK must be at least 18 years old, in good general health, and have good eye health, with no diseases such as cataracts or glaucoma. Only an in-depth examination of your eyes, your individual case, your expectations and your lifestyle by an experienced, licensed optometrist or ophthalmologist can determine if you are a candidate.
