Laser Vision Correction is one of the most exciting technological advances in the history of eye care. There are three ways of utilizing this extraordinary technology, SMILE Eye Surgery, LASIK and PRK. All three procedures are performed by an ophthalmologist specializing in Laser Vision Correction.
CUSTOM LASIK (WITH INTRALASE®)
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.
Some people learn they are deemed ineligible for any kind of Laser Vision Correction procedure. At the Herzig Eye Institute, we are pleased to provide other safe options such as Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE) and Intraocular Collamer Lens (ICL).
YOUR PERSONALIZED LASIK PROCEDURE
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.
