Unique Eyes, Multiple Eye Conditions, Diversified Eye Solutions

Our Refractive Surgery program was built and is run by our experienced eye physicians. There is a board certified ophthalmologist on site before, during, and after your surgery to provide the follow up care you need and expect.

We offer more than Lasik! Would you appreciate hearing about all options available? Most people would! PRK, Visian ICL, and RLE are procedure options that you may also consider. To determine which procedure is right for you, a comprehensive assessment is conducted utilizing state-of-the-art technology. Based on the thorough diagnostic assessment, your surgeon will tailor a treatment plan to match the right procedure for your unique vision needs. Our doctors value the importance of your vision and will only recommend the safest procedure that can give you the results you desire. The choice is clear!

Custom Lasik (With Intralase)

Laser Vision Correction is one of the most exciting technological advances in the history of eye care.

LASIK stands for Laser Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis. A wide range of myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism can be corrected by the LASIK procedure. It is a delicate surgical procedure that allows for a very predictable healing response. Your vision stabilizes rapidly, and you can expect to have little or no discomfort following LASIK. Most patients have driving vision within 24 hours of treatment.

The IntraLase® method is a 100% blade-free approach to creating a corneal flap.

After gently lifting the corneal flap, the surgeon uses the computer-guided excimer laser to precisely reshape the cornea for corrected vision. IntraLase® provides the surgeon with the capability of creating a thinner, smoother and more uniform corneal flap. Contact us today to schedule your no charge consultation.

PRK - An Option Outside of LASIK

PRK an acronym for photorefractive keratectomy, treats mild to moderate myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. It uses a cool beam of ultraviolet light to reshape the cornea. Compare to Lasik, there is no flap on the cornea. There may be a slightly longer healing time with PRK. However, the vision results are excellent and PRK may be the more suitable option for patients with thinner corneas. Contact us today to schedule your no charge consultation.


Have You Been Told You Are Not a Candidate for Lasik or PRK?

Some people learn they are deemed ineligible for any kind of Laser Vision Correction procedure. At Premier Eye Care Group, we are pleased to provide other safe options such as the Visian ICL.

The Intraocular Collamer Lens (ICL) is an option available for patients with high levels of nearsightedness (myopia), that are too extreme for Laser Vision Correction, and for whom Laser Vision Correction on the cornea is not safe. The Intraocular Collamer Lens (ICL) is a very thin intraocular lens designed to rest in front of the eye's natural lens, just behind the iris. There is no laser to the cornea in this procedure. Currently we are leading in experience with the Visian ICL surgery in the Harrisburg region. In fact, one of our very own doctors has trusted their eyes to the Visian ICL procedure! Contact us today to schedule your no charge consultation.


Suitable Solutions for Myopia, Presbyopia, and Hyperopia

In addition to laser eye surgery, PECG adjusts vision through implantable collamer lens and refractive lens exchange. Call us to schedule an appointment and determine if either treatment is right for you.

ICL (Phakic IOL)

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. PECG has the most experience with performing ICL surgery in the Harrisburg region.

RLE - Refractive Lens Exchange

Refractive lens exchange is also called clear lens extraction. It is essentially cataract surgery performed on a clear lens or mild cataract. The natural lens is replaced with an IOL (intraocular lens), which can provide single focus vision or multifocal vision. This IOL advanced technology allows a person to see distance and near in the same eye. RLE has the advantage of being able to treat presbyopia as well as myopia or hyperopia. PECG offers state-of-the-art laser assisted treatments with our Lensx laser! Contact us today to schedule your no charge consultation.
