What is LASIK Eye Surgery?
LASIK is an FDA-approved procedure that corrects nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism in a patient, allowing them to see clearly without the aid of eyeglasses or contact lenses. These problems are easily corrected by reshaping the cornea, a type of surgery that can be performed by specific laser energy called laser refractive surgery.
Millions of patients have successfully undergone LASIK over the years, achieving near-perfect or perfect vision and ditching their corrective lenses. In fact, it’s the most popular refractive eye surgery that exists today.
LASIK stands for laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis. LASIK reshapes the cornea in the eye and can be used in one or both eyes. The results of LASIK are permanent and consistent among people with varying degrees and types of vision correction needs.
LASIK: What are the Benefits?
LASIK is a safe, risk-free laser vision correction surgery that’s already helped many people regain their vision so they can see in 20/20 vision without the use of eyeglasses or contact lenses. There is no pain involved in a LASIK procedure and most patients report that they do not experience any discomfort or pain during the recovery process.
It takes only about 5-minutes per eye to complete laser eye surgery, with instantaneous results for most LASIK patients.
Am I a LASIK Candidate?
To be a good candidate for LASIK, you should be at least 18 years of age, have healthy eyes, and have adequate corneal thickness as LASIK corrects your vision by removing tissue from your cornea to reshape your eye. Chronic dry eye problems, corneal diseases and other abnormalities may make you ineligible for LASIK surgery. In order to know for sure if you are a good candidate, a comprehensive eye exam is required. For your convenience we are happy to provide LASIK pre-operative exams and consultations at our office.
How Z-LASIK Works
With traditional LASIK procedures, a corneal flap is created to allow access to the lens of the eye, which can then be reshaped with an excimer laser to correct the misshapen lens that’s causing your vision problems.
Z-LASIK surgery is also known as “bladeless LASIK” because instead of using a scalpel to create this flap, Z-LASIK uses a femtosecond laser beam that precisely separates the layers of corneal tissue to create an ultra-thin LASIK flap. This modern laser system brings new precision to refractive surgery, ensuring consistent, proven results.
No two patients have the same exact LASIK needs, therefore costs for the procedure vary from one patient to the next. Many factors impact LASIK costs, further complicating the price of the procedure. LASIK price factors include the physician chosen for the surgery, the time of the year, the extent of your corrective vision needs, and others.
