LASIK and Alternatives


Freedom From Glasses and Contacts Morning After Morning

Many people are looking for the freedom of better vision without glasses or contact lenses. Fortunately, there have been many advances in vision correction or refractive surgery that allow for just that. Imagine the independence of not wearing glasses. From the time you wake up to your morning swim to watching movies and going an evening run, life without glasses is a reality that is within reach. There are many procedures that can help make this vision a reality. Contact PECG today for more information about what we can do for your eyes.

Unique Eyes, Multiple Eye Conditions, Diversified Eye Solutions

Our eye doctors in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, are some of the best in multiple eye surgery solutions. We are LASIK experts and so much more. PECG is beyond a single eye corrective solution. Some LASIK centers may only perform LASIK, which is what they are usually recommended. However, that may not be the best solution for your eyes. Since we have expert doctors in multiple solutions, we can help you find the correct solution. PECG will only recommend what we feel is the right solution for the best result.

Think your eyes are beyond help? Some of our state-of-the-art procedures can treat patients with severe myopia (nearsightedness) or hyperopia (farsightedness). This is an exciting time for patients who want vision correction surgery but thought they were beyond normal LASIK help. We are committed to providing the safest, best results for each individual patient. Everyone wants the best for their eyes - trust our LASIK, PRK, ICL (Phakic IOL), and RLE eye doctor experts. The choice is clear!

PECG and LASIK - Love At First Sight

Our LASIK program was built by and is run by our eye doctors. We have an eye doctor on-site before, during, and after your surgery. At centers where an eye doctor only comes in to perform scheduled procedures, many patients do not see their LASIK doctor until the time of surgery and never again afterward. Our eye doctors are available following your surgery to answer any post-surgery questions.

PRK - An Option Outside of LASIK

PRK stands for photorefractive keratectomy and treats mild to moderate myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. It uses a cool beam of ultraviolet light to reshape the cornea. Compared to LASIK, there is no flap in the cornea. There may be slightly longer healing time with PRK. However, the results are also excellent, and PRK is possibly a more suitable option for patients with thinner corneas.


ICL (Phakic IOL) - Making the Impossible Possible

Have you been told that LASIK is not an option for your eye because of high levels of myopia? Our ICL lens implants are potentially your solution. The Visian ICL (implantable collamer lens) is a thin lens implanted inside the eye behind the pupil, between the iris and natural lens. This procedure can correct higher levels of myopia (up to -16 diopters) than LASIK or PRK. The eye's natural lens is left in place, and there is no corneal laser or treatment. We have the most experience with performing ICL surgery in the Harrisburg region.

ICLs Available for Severe Nearsighted

With our new LenSx® Laser System, ICLs are now an option for patients with more severe nearsightedness. Myopes, or patients who are myopic, are nearsighted. Usually, LASIK and PRK can only correct up to 8-9 diopters safely. ICLs can correct up to 15-16+ diopters of myopia. It doesn't alter the corneal surface and causes less dryness. Some patients have been referred to us from other LASIK centers because they were not able to correct the patient with LASIK due to the degree of correction or the patient wasn't a LASIK candidate. PECG performed ICL or refractive lens exchange for them. We provide many different refractive options customized for each individual patient's need.
