What is LASIK?

LASIK is an outpatient surgical procedure that uses high-accuracy pulses of light to reshape the surface of the cornea (the lens on the front of the eye). The ultimate goal of LASIK is to help patients enjoy the comfort and freedom of clear vision without the use of glasses or contacts.

LASIK can correct most common eye conditions: nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia) and astigmatism – allowing a majority of patients to achieve 20/20 vision or better.

Step 1: Flap Creation

LASIK Eye Surgery Step 1b

A thin flap is created on the surface of the eye (the cornea) using either the femtosecond Alcon LenSx Laser or AMO IntraLase iFS. We utilize multiple LASIK technologies.

We will then gently lift the flap.

Step 2: Corneal Reshaping

We then utilize another laser, an excimer laser to reshape the eye.

After the reshaping process the flap is reflected back into its natural position. Naturally self-sealing.

People living with nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia) and/or astigmatism have blurry vision without glasses or contacts because the cornea (the surface of your eye) is not focusing light appropriately onto the retina.  LASIK fixes this by reshaping the surface of the eye, allowing light to appropriately focus on the retina and improving your vision without glasses and/or contacts.

At Fraser Eye Care Center our surgeons utilize the latest, most advanced laser technology – including the Advanced iFS Femtosecond laser, Alcon Femtosecond LenSx laser and ViSX CustomVue Star S4 Laser – all of which work to give you the clearest HD vision possible.

Our Blade-Free and CustomVue LASIK technology (iLASIK) is specifically designed to offer the upmost precision to give you a customized procedure that fits your unique eyes. Our WaveFront WaveScan Analyzer takes a fingerprint 3D scan of the surface of your eye (the cornea).  Then our Blade-Free femtosecond laser and excimer laser combine to make a flap on the surface of the eye and reshape the surface of the eye based on the 3D fingerprint scan.  Providing the most personalized and accurate treatment possible.
