About LASIK Eye Surgery

LASIK is a procedure that corrects vision by reshaping the cornea with excimer laser technology. Its accuracy, safety, quick recovery time, wide range of correction, and minimal discomfort makes it one of the country’s most popular forms of vision correction. The entire procedure takes only a few minutes, both eyes can be done in a single day, and no needles, stitches or patches are necessary.

Benefits of LASIK Eye Surgery With Dr. Solomon

There are numerous benefits of LASIK eye surgery in Charleston, including the following:

  • Significant improvement in vision: Most of our Charleston patients no longer need to wear glasses or contact lenses after LASIK eye surgery. Many enjoy 20/20 vision or better. Among patients that still need glasses or contacts after surgery, the majority need a lower prescription or wear them only for certain tasks, like driving at night.
  • Save hundreds of dollars every year: Thanks to laser eye correction surgery, you can save a lot of money on glasses, contact lenses, cases and cleaning supplies.
  • Convenience of a glasses-free lifestyle: Enjoy the comfort and convenience of a glasses-free lifestyle; you can go about your day without pausing to worry about caring for or cleaning visual aids.
  • Freedom to travel without glasses: You can travel without the hassle of packing backup glasses, extra lenses and bottles of cleaning solution and even contact lenses.
  • Better sports performance: Whether you play sports professionally or recreationally, you know how uncomfortable and frustrating it is to rely on glasses or contacts. You will likely find that your athletic performance improves and you enjoy sports and other physical activities more than you used to!
  • Improved confidence: You may feel self-conscious in glasses, and vastly prefer the way you look without glasses.
  • Reduction in allergies: If you have bad allergies, your eyes may itch badly after putting in or taking out your contact lenses. After having LASIK eye surgery you will no longer feel the need to touch your eyes, so they should feel less irritated and itchy.

A Closer Look at LASIK Surgery

Let’s review a typical LASIK eye surgery procedure, step by step:

Step 1: Using wavefront technology, we take a digital image of your optical system and map it – it’s like a fingerprint of your eye. Dr. Solomon evaluates this highly detailed profile and transfers it to the laser.

Step 2: Dr. Solomon uses the safety and precision of the computer-controlled laser to create a corneal flap. He gently folds this flap back to prepare the eye for the treatment laser.

Step 3: LASIK eye specialist Dr. Solomon then uses a cool beam laser to reshape the cornea and reduce sources of irregularities. During this process, he uses multiple tracking and alignment systems to ensure both safety and accuracy throughout the entire procedure.

Step 4: Finally, Dr. Solomon moves the protective flap that was created in step 2 back to its original position. The cornea begins healing immediately, and the patient may return home.
