LIMBERG LASIK PROCEDURES
LASIK procedures are immensely popular because they allow for the correction of vision without the hassle of glasses or the risks of contact lenses. Just as your eyes are unique, there are different types of LASIK eye surgery treatments to fit your individual situation.
LASIK treatments can correct some of the most common vision problems, including nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. It is a common misconception that those who have astigmatism will not benefit from LASIK, which has proven not to be true.
Don't wait to find out how you can live your life eyewear-free and never miss a moment of all life has to offer.
ADVANCED LASIK TECHNOLOGY

Dr. Limberg will recommend the LASIK procedure for achieving optimal vision.
LASIK (laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis) is the most frequently performed laser vision correction procedure.
Traditional LASIK laser eye surgery works by reshaping the curvature of the cornea. This changes the way light travels through the cornea to the retina—the back of the eye—so that light rays focus more precisely on it, allowing the vision in the treated eye to be in better focus. The result is sharper, clearer vision.
PRK or photo refractive keratectomy laser eye surgery is similar to Traditional LASIK surgery, however in PRK surgery instead of creating a flap, a thin outer layer of the cornea is removed to allow the excimer laser access to reshape the eye.
PRK was the first type of laser eye surgery for vision correction and may be a better alternative for certain eye conditions.
The monovision procedure involves the dominant eye is corrected for distance focus, and the second eye is corrected for near focus.
Monovision LASIK allows the patient to see near and distant images without glasses or contacts, allowing the patient to see clearly at any distance.
The goal of monovision is to be independent of glasses for most day-to-day activities.
