LASIK stands for Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis. It is the most commonly performed laser vision corrective surgery in the world, and has been instrumental in helping millions of people eliminate their need for glasses and contacts.
A patient undergoing LASIK surgery will first receive anesthetic eye drops to ensure that the entire procedure is pain-free. We then use the state-of-the-art WaveLight® FS200 Femtosecond Laser to create a thin flap in the outermost layer of the cornea without the need for any blade, and takes only about 6 seconds. Once the corneal flap is created, it is gently lifted aside to expose the tissue underneath.
Next our Allegretto Wave™ excimer laser, which has the largest FDA approved range for precise vision correction, is used to precisely reshape the cornea. The corneal flap is then repositioned to allow your eyes to heal as quickly and comfortably as possible.
