What Is LASIK?
LASIK is a refractive surgery procedure that doesn’t cause much pain. Typically with LASIK, the vision drastically improves in just a day’s time. LASIK works for both farsighted and nearsighted people, and special lasers can be used on those with astigmatism.
LASIK surgery is performed in the following steps:
- A thin, circular flap is made in the cornea by a laser or a special instrument known as a microkeratome..
- Folding the flap out of the way, the surgeon then proceeds to remove corneal tissue with a laser..
- The cornea is reshaped to match the exact needs of the patient..
- The flap is replaced in order to cover the area where the tissue was removed.
LASIK surgery is typically painless, done in under an hour and allows for improved eyesight quickly. Before you are qualified for LASIK surgery, you’ll undergo a complete evaluation by one of our eye doctor. This pre-operative evaluation will determine if you are a good candidate for surgery and uncover any conditions that may affect the procedure.
If it is determined that you are a good candidate for LASIK, we will match you with the best surgeon to meet your individual needs. We want to improve your vision and ensure that you have a great experience with us no matter what you choose.
