What is LASIK Surgery?

LASIK is the most common and well-known vision correction surgery. During LASIK your surgeon uses an excimer laser to reshape the cornea to improve the way the eye focuses light rays onto the retina. The surgeon will create a thin flap in your cornea and apply the laser treatment beneath.

The Procedure & What to Expect

The eye is numbed with a topical anesthetic. The surgeon creates a thin flap over the outer layer of the cornea, then the laser is used to reshape the cornea to the correct shape.  The flap is then returned to position, and it heals in place. LASIK takes only 10 to 15 minutes. Most patients report greatly improved vision with little to no discomfort the day after undergoing LASIK surgery.

Advanced technology to individualize your vision correction, CustomVue Wavefront technology is groundbreaking because it has the potential to improve not only how much you can see, but also how well you can see. With custom LASIK, your eye’s ability to focus light is measured and a 3-D map is created that demonstrates irregularities. Information contained in the map guides the laser in customizing the treatment to reshape your eye’s corneal surface so that these irregularities can be corrected. Traditional LASIK procedures cannot treat these irregularities.

It was amazing! I could see clearly, things I never was able to see before. It definitely exceeded my expectations.”
