What is LASIK surgery

Medically referred to as Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis, LASIK is a surgical procedure using laser energy to reshape the cornea for better eyesight and vision correction. It is an outpatient refractive surgery procedure with a quick recovery. The surgery can be completed within 15 minutes for both eyes with improved vision hours after the surgery. Most patients are able to return to work the very next day.

If you’re stuck behind glasses or contacts, imagine what it would be like to wake up each morning and see clearly throughout the day – no matter what activities or hobbies you are enjoying. Imagine your life without the frustration! Your new vision after LASIK Surgery will allow you to focus on the more important things in your life.

 

 

What can Lasik Surgery Correct?

LASIK Surgery from The Excel Laser Vision Institute uses a laser to reshape the cornea — the clear, round dome at the front of the eye. Its primary purpose is to improve the way the eye focuses light rays onto the retina at the back of the eye. It can treat ophthalmic cases of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.

LASIK Technology

The WaveLight EX500 is the most advanced excimer laser approved by the FDA for performing Custom Wavefront LASIK and Topography-guided Custom Ablation Treatment (T-CAT). It is the most efficient excimer laser, operating at a speed of 500 Hz. With the highest precision eye-tracking system that incorporates iris recognition and a capability to perform Topography-guided LASIK, the WaveLight EX500 can perform perfect laser sculpting of the cornea during LASIK surgery. This technology significantly reduces fixation fatigue, minimizes corneal dehydration, and enables perfect centration during laser ablation for a quick and successful procedure.

Life-Changing Results

Imagine what it would be like to wake up each morning and not have to worry about putting on glasses or contacts. Imagine being able to see clearly throughout the day – no matter what activities or hobbies you are enjoying. Your new vision after LASIK Surgery will allow you to focus on the things most important to you.

Vision problems? LASIK surgery can help!

LASIK Surgery from The Excel Laser Vision Institute utilizes a laser to reshape the cornea — the clear, round dome at the front of the eye. Its primary purpose is to improve the way the eye focuses light rays onto the retina at the back of the eye. It can treat ophthalmic cases of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.

Nearsighted – Myopia:
Many people with troubled vision can typically see when objects are right in front of their eyes, but as objects get further and further away they may appear blurred or distorted. This is described as being nearsighted.

Farsightedness – Hyperopia:
Farsighted people usually don’t have trouble seeing objects at a distance. Far away objects appear much clearer in their vision than objects that are close to their eyes. Today, faster lasers, larger spot areas, bladeless flap incisions, intraoperative pachymetry, and wavefront-optimized and -guided techniques have significantly improved the reliability of the procedure compared to that of 1999.

Astigmatism:
People with astigmatism experience blurred vision. This condition can occur when the cornea is an irregular shape or when the lens has a particular curvature that prevents light from focusing properly. Astigmatism is a common occurrence with nearsighted or farsighted vision problems.
