Vision Correction

What is laser vision correction and how does is work?

Laser vision correction is a type of refractive surgery. The goal of any refractive surgical procedure is to reduce or eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses. In laser vision correction procedures such as LASIK, a cool beam of laser light reshapes the surface of the cornea. The cornea is the clear 'window' in front of your pupil. Reshaping this surface allows images that enter the eye to focus properly on the retina (the sensitive layer of tissue lining the back of the eye that allows you to see objects and images). LASIK is FDA approved for treatment of myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism (irregular corneal shape).

What is LASIK?

LASIK (Laser-Assisted In-Situ Keratomelusis) is a refractive procedure designed to reshape the cornea in order to eliminate or reduce a patient's need for corrective lenses such as glasses or contact lenses. In LASIK a thin hinged flap is created in the cornea using the blade-free IntraLase Laser. The laser vision correction procedure is then performed under this flap on the under layer or stroma of the cornea. The stroma is reshaped using a cool laser beam created by the excimer laser. Reshaping this surface allows light to be more correctly placed onto the retina. The hinged flap is then put back into place over the treated cornea and begins adhering immediately, so, there is no need for stitches.
