Happiness is all about quality of life and for most of us, quality of life improves tremendously when we’re able to shed our dependence on glasses and contact lenses. However, all of us have different visual needs as well as different prescriptions, so a one-size-fits-all approach does not work. Therefore, at Kresloff Eye Associates we offer many different options, some of which include LASIK, PRK and Implantable contact lenses (Visian ICL). We specialize in creating a customized treatment plan based on your unique eyes and visual needs.
What is LASIK?
LASIK - standing for Laser Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis - is a procedure that can permanently improve your vision without glasses or contact lenses. The procedure has been available for over twenty years and is both safe and effective. LASIK works by reshaping the cornea, and can correct vision problems like nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia) and astigmatism.
LASIK is the one of the most commonly performed laser eye surgeries in the United States and is a great option for those individuals who desire to reduce their dependency on glasses or contact lenses. Our practice utilizes the latest in technology to create a customized treatment. The procedure is quick with little to no discomfort and results are often immediate.
How LASIK Works?
The LASIK procedure is comprised of several different steps. Before the procedure, the eye is numbed with anesthetic eye drops and a lid holder is placed to keep the eye open.
The surgery involves creating a flap of tissue in the middle section of the cornea called the stroma. This can be done with a surgical blade called a microkeratome, but newer technologies that we utilize here incorporate the safety and precision of a femtosecond laser for flap creation. After the flap is made, you are asked to look at a target light while a different laser, an excimer laser, is used to painlessly reshape the stroma and correct your prescription.
The procedure lasts from 10-50 seconds depending on the severity of the correction. The cornea is observed 20 minutes later to ensure proper flap adherence and corneal shape. Post-surgical treatment involves follow-up appointments to monitor the eye and its vision progress as well as the use of eye drops.
In most cases, vision is improved to the point where glasses or contacts are no longer needed; however, this varies with each patient depending on the degree of their vision impairment. Most individuals are able to return to normal activities such as work and driving the day after.
