LASIK combines the use of the IntraLase to create a flap of cornea tissue which is lifted up while the laser is used to reshape the underlying surface. The IntraLase is the choice of our doctors because it offers the safest, most precise, and most reliable means to create the corneal flap.

LASIK differs from PRK in that it corrects vision by reshaping the corneal tissue beneath the surface of the cornea rather than on the surface. LASIK combines the accuracy of the laser with the healing benefits of a surgical procedure called Lamellar Keratoplasty.

After your eye has been numbed using "eye drop" anesthesia, an eyelid holder is placed between your lids to prevent blinking. Your surgeon then makes a protective flap in the cornea. During this process you may feel a little pressure, but no pain. The flap is created in each eye using the  IntraLase. You will then be taken to a second laser where the reshaping treatment will be performed. The protective flap is then folded back in place where it bonds without the need for stitches.

Lasik Eye Surgery Procedure

Because LASIK is performed under a layer of protective tissue, there is less surface area to heal, less risk of corneal haze, less postoperative discomfort, and less need for postoperative medication. Your vision also returns more rapidly- often within a day or so.

Your vision returns rapidly after LASIK eye surgery.
