LASIK EYE SURGERY
LASIK procedures are immensely popular because they not only allow more freedom from glasses and contacts but also the chance to see better than you would with corrective eyewear.
There are different types of LASIK eye surgery treatments, and your surgeon will determine which one is best for you, depending on your individual needs.
LASIK treatments can correct some of the most common vision problems, including nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.
Our physicians use state-of-the-art eye-mapping technology to analyze the problems with your eyesight as well as each eye’s unique irregularities.
After determining if you’re eligible for LASIK, your surgeon will recommend the LASIK procedure that makes the most sense for achieving your optimal vision.
You will receive some simple instructions to follow in the days leading up to your LASIK treatment, including not wearing contact lenses for a period of about a couple of weeks to a few days.
Your surgeon will discuss with you what to expect during and after your laser eye surgery procedure, including recovery time.
Limberg LASIK Procedures
LASIK (laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis) is the most frequently performed laser vision correction procedure.
A hinged flap is created on the eye’s surface, and an excimer laser is used to reshape the underlying corneal tissue so that the eye’s focusing power is improved.
PRK or Photo Refractive Keratectomy Laser Eye Surgery is similar to LASIK surgery, PRK surgery involves using a laser to reshape the cornea.
But instead of creating a flap, a thin outer layer of the cornea is polished to allow the laser access to reshaping the eye.
PRK may be a better alternative for certain eye conditions.
With Monovision LASIK, one eye is “set” for distance focus, and the other eye is set for better near focus.
Monovision allows a patient to see both distance and near images without glasses by having blended visual focal points. The goal of Monovision is to be independent of glasses for most day-to-day activities.
