What is LASIK?

LASIK, or Laser-Assisted in situ Keratomileusis), commonly referred to as Laser Eye Surgery, is a type of refractive surgery for the correction of myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. During the LASIK procedure, a microscopic, protective flap is created to access the inner corneal tissue. Then, the laser light is used to gently reshape the surface of the cornea to alter its focusing power and improve your vision.

Understanding how the eye sees images

When we look at an image light passes through the outer most portion of the eye (cornea), through the lens, and focuses on the back of the eye (retina). Imperfections in vision can be caused by any part of this journey. Laser vision correction works to gently reshape the cornea treating the most common imperfections in vision: myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and even astigmatism.

Step-By-Step

What to expect during LASIK treatment?

Freedom from glasses or contacts doesn't have to be hard. Check out our start-to-vision LASIK process.

LASIK flap creation with laser
STEP 1

Eye Preparation

Using the VisuMax laser a microscopic flap is created and lifted exposing the inner surface of the eye for treatment.

STEP 2

Treatment

An excimer laser gently reshapes the surface of the eye in around 60 seconds and the flap is lowered.

Advanced CustomVue LASIK

CustomVue LASIK technology is the most precise type of LASIK available, offering patients excellent, predictable results that far exceed those of traditional LASIK (and few centers offer this LASIK technology).

The CustomVue procedure incorporates two key technologies; the Wavescan analyzer, and the VISX Star S4 Laser. The Wavescan analyzer maps your unique optical imperfections utilizing a shack-hartmann wavefront sensor. This data is used to calculate a personalized laser treatment plan for each individual eye. Last, the personalized treatment profile is transferred to the Start S4 Laser and applied to the patients eye to deliver a personalized LASIK treatment with superior results.

  • 25x more precise than traditional LASIK
  • Wavefront technology developed by NASA
  • Corrects vision more precisely than glasses
  • Only LASIK approved for NASA astronauts

The worlds most advanced all-laser LASIK

Originally the first step in the LASIK procedure, creating a flap, was completed with a blade. More recently, advanced laser technology (called femtosecond lasers) became available to create the flap using a laser (instead of a blade). This is commonly referred to as all-laser-LASIK. Utilizing a laser to create a flap results in a safer, faster procedure with more accurate results.

Some centers only offer blade-LASIK, while others charge an additional fee for all-laser-LASIK. Our philosophy has always been to offer the safest, most advanced technology to our patients as our gold standard. Keeping with this philosophy all of our LASIK procedures are all-laser as we include femtosecond LASIK (all-laser) with every procedure.
