What is LASIK?

Discover the possibility of long-term vision correction with laser in-situ keratomileusis, also known as LASIK, a popular operation for those 18 years of age and up. In order to improve light focus on the retina, which is found at the rear of the eye, LASIK works by reshaping the cornea.


Are you considering LASIK? Begin by expressing your interest during a thorough eye exam. During a LASIK consultation, one of our skilled doctors will determine whether you are a good candidate for the operation.


Common refractive errors that can be properly treated with LASIK surgery include:


  • Nearsightedness or Myopia: Objects that are close to you appear clear, but objects farther away are blurry.
  • Farsightedness or Hyperopia: Objects that are farther away from you appear clear, but objects closer are blurry.
  • Astigmatism: Due to the irregular shape of your eye, most objects are blurry, meaning you struggle to see clearly in almost all situations.


Your ophthalmologist will numb your eyes with medications and use a laser to carefully create a small flap in your cornea during LASIK surgery. It normally takes 20 minutes to finish this painless procedure. The flap is then carefully repositioned once the tissue underneath it has been reshaped using a different laser. Following surgery, it’s normal to have dry eyes. To address this, you’ll be given recommended eye drops to keep your eyes hydrated and reduce the risk of infection and inflammation. The majority of patients see improved vision after a few days of starting the comparatively quick healing process. 

Patient Background + History

In order to assess your candidacy for LASIK surgery, our medical staff thoroughly considers your past medical history, your background as a patient, and a number of other variables. Your medical history plays a critical role in determining your eligibility and general health. In order for our experts to evaluate any underlying illnesses that might affect the operation, it is imperative that interested patients give precise information. These necessary conditions cover a variety of aspects, such as but not restricted to: 


  • Family History or Current of Systemic or Eye Pathology
  • Allergies to Any Medications
  • Environmental Conditions Impacting Your Vision or Ocular Health


Our team of specialists determines your suitability for LASIK surgery after carefully reviewing your past medical records. We welcome your open communication of any private concerns you may have during this important time. To make informed decisions, we need accurate data. You can trust us to address any worries you may have and ensure your needs are taken into consideration at every decision. 

Analysis of the Overall Health of Your Eyes

The first step in the LASIK evaluation process will be to have a comprehensive set of tests performed during your visit by our professionals. Some of these tests could be fresh to you, and some might have been examined earlier during your prior eye exam. A doctor will be with you throughout the appointment and prompt you to ask questions, address any concerns you may have, explain the meaning of each test, and carefully review your results with you at the end. We would like you to know that you can have trust and confidence in this process. Our main goal is to help you through the journey.


Ability to Focus

If you wear contacts or glasses frequently, our specialists will most likely carry out the same exams you’ve done earlier. They will do a complete eye check-up and test how clearly you see and how focused your eyes are. This assessment entails the examination of your vision from different angles using different manual refraction tests, which include the popular “Pick One or Two” technique. Furthermore, a digital analyzer would measure light scattering and vision quality as light enters your eyes to support the manual refraction findings. Therefore, thorough assessments enable our specialists to adopt the best strategy for improving your vision.


Dilated Eye Exam

Our doctors will use a solution to enlarge your pupils so they can see the lens and retinas in the back of your eyes. The refraction measurements will be taken after your pupils have fully dilated. This enables our experts to confirm the first refraction’s findings and acquire more accurate readings.


Front of Your Eyes

The innovative diagnostic process, along with the precision of high-resolution scans, provides the ability to carefully examine the eye tissue up to micron size. During your examination, you will be led through a sequence of next-generation digital scanners that will form a set of the most precise images of your eye’s surface and lens. These scans, in turn, are very important for the evaluation of such parameters as cornea health, condition of a tear film, eyelid health, and early indications of cataract. To add to it, the high-definition scans provide deeper insights into the curvature, structure, and thickness of the cornea, thus enabling professionals to precisely diagnose and develop customized treatment plans.


Inside + Surface of Your Eyes

Digital Technology is going to be the one to create highly accurate pictures of your retina or the micro structures within your eye. The retina is the main component that transforms the light beams into vital nerve impulses and sends them to your brain, which is what enables you to see the images clearly. With the assistance of such images, our skilled expert can fairly analyze the condition and performance of your retina. Besides, our experts will examine in detail the tear film’s composition and its volume which play a significant role in determining whether there will be successful LASIK surgery.


Other Eye Measurements

In a comprehensive examination designed to discover possible hidden problems, our highly qualified ophthalmologists utilize the latest microscopy technology to examine your eye’s structure as a whole. Our doctors and health specialists work meticulously in this phase of the evaluation by exploring signs of conditions like glaucoma, diabetes, allergies, and macular degeneration, leaving no stone unturned. Moreover, the diameter, width, and corneal curvature of your eye are measured with precision to provide a detailed analysis of your eye.

Are You a Candidate?

We will examine every case individually in our LASIK consultations with our experienced team to decide if LASIK surgery is the right option for you. We make sure a patient is well-informed regarding the suitability of LASIK surgery and also knows the benefits and potential complications of the procedure. Here are several factors our doctors assess to determine your eligibility:


  • Age
  • General Health
  • Eye Health
  • Eye Problems
  • Eye Injury
  • Nursing or Pregnancy
  • Dry Eye Condition
  • Stable Vision
  • Contact Use
  • Corneal Thickness
