LASIK & Vision Correction
Our talented ophthalmologist is renowned for his skill in restoring clear vision with life-changing vision correction procedures like LASIK and customizing it to your needs. We use two different lasers for LASIK to provide patients with a wider range of conditions an opportunity to have enhanced eyesight. Our ophthalmologist has years of experience providing incredible results for our patients, customized to each one’s specific situation.
During the LASIK procedure, a flap is created on the cornea. Then using a laser, the cornea is reshaped. This is a short procedure that takes approximately 3 to 5 minutes for each eye. There is little discomfort associated with LASIK surgery.
Shorthand for photorefractive keratectomy, this is a common corrective surgery that is a good option for patients who aren’t qualified for LASIK but want nearly identical results. PRK surgery is an ideal alternative corrective surgery for patients who have thinner corneas and might otherwise not be a good candidate for regular LASIK.
PRK is similar to LASIK in many ways, however, this treatment doesn’t involve creating a flap. Instead, the surface cells are gently removed and the cornea is treated with a cool laser. A bandage contact lens is applied to aid in the healing process and is removed after 3 to 4 days.
Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE)
Refractive Lens Exchange is a type of vision correction surgery that involves using ultrasound to remove the natural lens of the eye and replacing it with an intraocular lens (IOL) to minimize the use of glasses and contacts.
Refractive Lens Exchange may be an excellent procedure for people who are age 40-50 and are nearsighted (distant objects appear blurry) or farsighted (close objects appear blurry), people with early cataract formation, and individuals who want to treat presbyopia (gradual decline in the ability to focus on close objects) with a multifocal implant. For some patients, RLE can be a great alternative to LASIK.
