About LASIK 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.

A Closer Look at LASIK

Let’s review a typical LASIK 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: Dr. Solomon uses a cool laser beam 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.

We make vision correction more affordable with our special offers.
