Modern LASIK

LASIK, or laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis, is one of the most popular and precise vision procedures available today to correct different refractive errors. With the specialized technology Center For Sight has helped pioneer, we use a combination of laser technology to perform blade-free LASIK with micron-level precision and accuracy. 

David Shoemaker, M.D., founder and director of laser cataract and lens replacement surgery at Center For Sight, will be the first ophthalmologist in the United States to implant the Synergy™ intraocular lens as a Food and Drug Administration approved device.

How LASIK Works

The LASIK procedure involves 2 steps: making a flap and then reshaping the cornea with the excimer laser. At Center For Sight, we use the IntraLase laser to create a flap to help our surgeons access the cornea. With assistance from the WaveLight EX500 excimer laser with wavefront technology, our surgeons reshape your cornea to provide you with improved vision. 

Our topography-guided laser can help provide customized laser treatment based on your unique cornea shape. 

Advantages of Blade-Free LASIK

There are several advantages to our blade-free LASIK procedure, including:

  • Improved safety
  • Better vision
  • The highest degree of predictability
  • Reduced dry eye symptoms
  • Individualized flaps

Another vision-correcting procedure is Epi-LASEK (or PRK). This surgery involves reshaping the cornea directly on the surface rather than through a flap, like LASIK. Epi-LASEK is ideal for people with thin corneas or other corneal conditions.

We reshape the cornea with help from the WaveLight EX500 excimer laser after removing the outer layer of the cornea (epithelium). A contact lens bandage then goes over the treatment area to offer protection and comfort during the healing process. The recovery process for Epi-LASEK is longer than LASIK, taking several days for the epithelium to regenerate and the eye to heal.

An implantable contact lens (ICL) is a lens placed inside of the eye. It differs from other intraocular lens implants because the natural lens does not need to be removed when placing the ICL. The lens tucks behind the iris, providing clearer vision.

If needed, an ICL can be removed and replaced if your refractive error changes with time.

Love Life Without Glasses

At Center For Sight, we have several ways to help improve your vision. Our experienced doctors can help you choose the vision correction option allowing you the greatest opportunity to minimize dependence on glasses or contacts. Contact us today to see how we can help.
