One of the first practices to perform LASIK eye surgery in Detroit was Doctors Grosinger, Spigelman and Grey at Eye Michigan. The doctors took part in the original FDA study which took place starting in October of 1991 and were the first in the entire southeastern region of Michigan to perform the procedure.
Since the initial study there have been millions of people who have undergone LASIK eye surgery and millions have benefited from LASIK surgery. LASIK or laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis is a procedure that reshapes the cornea to improve how light is refracted in the retina of your eye. The result of this procedure is that the light entering the eye is now being focused properly and your vision will be improved so that you will be able to see more clearly. The LASIK procedure has been around since the 1980s when it was done manually with a scalpel. Even with the manual procedure it was highly successful. The success rate for the current procedure is exceptionally high at 95%. The procedure has evolved into a two-step process. First a laser is used to access the cornea tissue. A flap is created on the surface of the cornea that allows an excimer or ultraviolet laser to remove tissue and reshape the cornea. The procedure takes about one hour and requires no hospitalization.
The LASIK procedure has been around for many years and continues to evolve. Millions have had the procedure done on them and have improved their eyesight as a result. Doctors Grosinger, Spigelman and Grey were the first practice to perform LASIK laser eye surgery in Detroit and they still perform some of the most advanced LASIK Procedures available today.
