LASIK

Advanced Wavelight LASIK. Personalized treatments for excellent results.

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.

LASIK treatment with excimer laser
STEP 2

Treatment

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

The world's most advanced all-laser LASIK

LASIK treatment is a two-step process. Before an excimer laser can reshape the eye (to correct vision) a small thin flap is created using a laser or blade. Laser Eye Institute only offers laser LASIK flaps (all-laser-LASIK) and uses the word’s most advanced laser, Zeiss Visumax, in the flap creation process. Visumax is unmatched in safety, accuracy, and speed; resulting in safer, more comfortable all-laser-LASIK

Our philosphy has always been to offer the safest most advanced technology to our patients, which is why we only offer all-laser-LASIK at no additional cost.
