Laser eye surgery entails the precise reshaping of the cornea. When the surface of the cornea is reshaped correctly, light rays can focus properly on the retina, resulting in clear vision.
The term “laser eye surgery” covers several eye surgeries used for correction of refractive problems such as nearsightedness. The most frequent forms of laser vision surgery include LASIK, PRK, LASEK and epi-lasik.
Every eye is unique and at Laser Eye Surgeryevery laser surgery is unique, personally tailored to reflect your eye’s individual characteristics.
Our specialists pride themselves on offering stateoftheart treatments at affordable prices while achieving clinical excellence. Our quick and simple procedures offer the freedom of naturally clear vision, providing an alternative to wearing glasses and contact lenses.
Laser eye surgery involves the use of highly sophisticated excimer lasers to remove minute, precise amounts of tissue from the cornea. The thin, protective outer layer of the eye is moved aside, and the laser’s cool beam of ultraviolet light is applied onto the thicker corneal layer underneath.
Our ophthalmologist will determine from an all-inclusive, special vision test which laser eye surgical procedure will be most beneficial for you personally. He will recommend the procedure he believes will provide you with perfect results. Many patients achieve 20/20 or better vision after laser eye surgery.
When completed by our skilled doctors, laser vision surgery is safe, fast and painfree. It requires only 15 - 20 minutes, and most individuals are able to go back to work within a day.
There are 4 types of laser surgeries available:
LASIK - Laser in Situ Keratomileusis
PRK - Photorefractive Keratectomy
LASEK - Laser Epithelial Keratomileusis
Epi-LASIK - Epithelial Laser in Situ Keratomileusis
The above four laser vision surgery procedures use the exact same unique laser, called an "excimer" (or “exciplex”) laser, to reshape the cornea. This is what adjusts eyesight. Laser eye surgery may differ in the details of the process, the healing period, which medical devices are employed, as well as your individual body support.
During your first consultation, we will build your detailed treatment plan and recommend which of our laser eye treatments will deliver the best possible result for you.
