LASIK

Whether you are near-sighted (myopic), far-sighted (hyperopic), or have astigmatism, you may want to consider a LASIK procedure to improve your vision. With laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis, our ophthalmologist reshapes the cornea thereby allowing the entering light to focus with greater precision on the retina to produce clearer vision. At the office of IC Laser Eye Care, we can improved vision and eliminate or reduce your need for wearing eyeglasses or contact lenses.

What’s so great about LASIK? For one thing, it’s a relatively quick procedure with results that are typically evident right away and continue to improve over the days following the surgery. During a LASIK procedure, our surgeon reshapes your cornea with a laser designed and calibrated for this exact purpose. This laser emits a cool ultraviolet light beam that excises microscopic amounts of corneal tissue so that the entering light can be properly refracted as it travels to the retina. Before your LASIK procedure, our eye doctor will review your medical history and perform a comprehensive eye exam to make sure you’re a candidate for this procedure. This exam assesses the shape and thickness of your cornea, the size of your pupils, refractive errors, and other eye conditions. If you're scheduled for LASIK, it's recommended that you stop wearing contact lenses for a period of time before your eye exam and surgery.

Since its introduction a few decades ago laser vision correction has rapidly evolved into an appealing and highly successful outpatient procedure that can reduce or eliminate an individual’s dependence on glasses or contact lenses. In fact, according to the American Society for Cataract and Refractive Surgery, ophthalmologists in the United States perform roughly 700,000 LASIK procedures each year.

By choosing LASIK, you can improve the quality of your vision and your enjoyment of your daily activities.

At the office of IC Laser Eye Care, we’re dedicated to providing the highest quality of skilled and compassionate care. For more information on our office and the many services that we provide, give us a call today.
