What is LASIK?
LASIK is a 15 minutes, outpatient procedure that can correct vision issues such as astigmatism, nearsightedness, and farsightedness by affecting the way light hits the eye’s cornea.
Utilizing a bladeless procedure, the doctor will create a flap in the cornea then reshapes the exposed corneal tissue using a laser. The treatment is a minimally-invasive and patients often note dramatic vision improvement within 24 hours.
Is LASIK Permanent?
The corneal reshaping performed during this procedure is considered to be permanent. However, nearly everyone will undergo age-related vision changes. Continue to attend your annual exams to insure your eye doctor has an opportunity to identify age-related issues like glaucoma, presbyopia, and macular degeneration at an early stage.
Bladeless LASIK Technology
While some providers still use small blades called Microkeratomes to create the flap of corneal tissue, LasikPlus uses only 100% bladeless laser vision correction for your comfort and the quality of your vision. Don’t live with your blurry vision any longer. If you are 18 or older; have mild to moderate myopia, hyperopia, or astigmatism; and do not have chronically dry eyes then you could be a perfect candidate for our LASIK procedure. Call today and start seeing clearly.
