Lasik

LASIK is a surgical procedure intended to reduce a person’s dependency on glasses or contacts, by permanently changing the shape of the cornea using an FDA-approved Excimer laser.

The cornea, the clear covering of the front of the eye, works much like the lens of a camera to bend and focus light to create an image on the retina, through a process called refraction. When the shape of the cornea and eye are irregular, as they usually are, the image is blurred or distorted. In LASIK surgery, a laser is used to cut a flap in the cornea, and remove or alter corneal tissue to reshape the eye and correct its focusing power. When done successfully, LASIK surgery reduces or eliminates the need to wear corrective glasses or contact lenses.

Though LASIK enjoys a high rate of success and patient satisfaction, like any surgical procedure it is not for everyone, nor is it without risks. The physicians at Eye Physicians, PC can thoroughly evaluate your particular condition to be sure LASIK is a viable option for you. They will thoroughly explain what you can expect before, during and after a LASIK surgery procedure. Your surgery will take place in our state-of-the art surgery center that is equipped with the latest technology, and conducted by a highly trained medical team that has been performing LASIK surgery since 1999.

Don’t take our word for it. Do your homework before choosing the doctor that is right for you. Compare the expertise and equipment offered by Eye Physicians, PC with those of other providers. Ask about the types of lasers being used, and become an amateur expert on the pros and cons of each. Don’t base your decision solely on cost. Remember, this procedure will affect the rest of your life.
