Laser Vision Correction

Everyone is talking about LASIK. Here is a brief description of the procedure:

A flap is cut in the cornea, then the flap is gently folded back. An Excimer Laser reshapes the cornea. The flap is put back in place, acting like a natural bandage. The "Wow!" effect of Lasik is the rapid recovery of vision and the decreased level of discomfort post-operatively. Most people have functional vision in 24-48 hours, although this is true in the majority of cases, it must be noted that each person will heal at a different rate.

Vision continues to improve for some weeks, even months after surgery. Everyone's eyes are different. Even though you may have had a friend who has had LASIK, it does not mean it is right for you. If you are interested in laser vision correction, we will be happy to guide you in picking the right surgeon, procedure and laser appropriate for you. For many who are long-term contact lens wearers our pre-operative input can make the difference between an excellent result and a mediocre one. Post-operatively we monitor your eyes, and taper medications to arrive at the best possible result.
