Laser Vision Correction is One of the Most Exciting Technological Advances in the History of Eye Care!
A wide range of myopia (near sightedness), hyperopia (far sightedness), and astigmatism can be corrected with the laser.
PRK is an acronym for photo-refractive keratectomy. It uses a cool beam, computer-guided ultraviolet light to reshape the cornea. Compared to Lasik, there is no flap on the cornea. The treatment may be more comfortable as there is significantly less pressure applied to the eye during the procedure. In addition, it requires less time to complete since there is no need to create a corneal flap. Another benefit to having PRK is it requires less cornea depth which makes it safer and a more suitable option for patients with thinner corneas. Many who elect to have PRK are very active folks who appreciate and understand that they are removing the risk of a flap potentially dislodging. There may be a slightly longer healing time with PRK, however the improvements to the patient's vision are excellent! Contact us today to schedule your no charge consultation.
Custom Lasik (With Intralase)
LASIK stands for Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis. 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.
