Decrease Your Dependence on Glasses
If you’re looking for a more permanent correction for your refractive error than glasses or contact lenses, then you’ve come to the right place! At Total Vision, we offer total vision care, including laser eye surgery consultations and co-management.
Laser eye surgery is common, safe, and effective for improving vision problems like myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism.
Although LASIK is one of the most well-known corrective procedures, it’s certainly not the only one. If you’re considering laser eye surgery, you’ll need a consultation to determine if you’re a good candidate. Call us today for a thorough consultation with one of our knowledgeable and experienced optometrists.
Types of Laser Eye Surgery
Laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) uses a computer-programmed laser to precisely change the shape of your cornea.
LASIK is often completed in as little as 30 minutes. Your ophthalmologist begins by creating a flap in the outermost lens of your eye, which they fold over to expose the corneal stroma. This area is reshaped by removing tiny amounts of tissue with a laser.
Once the cornea is shaped to your prescription, your ophthalmologist replaces the flap, which usually heals on its own.
Nearly 90% of LASIK patients end up with vision between 20/20 and 20/40, without glasses or contact lenses.
Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) also uses a specially-programmed laser to change the shape of your cornea to correct your refractive error. Although it seems similar to LASIK, the procedure itself differs a bit.
PRK takes about 5 to 10 minutes per eye. Instead of creating a flap, your ophthalmologist removes and discards the outer layer of your cornea using a laser, blade, alcohol solution, or brush.
Your corneal stroma is then reshaped by removing precise amounts of tissue to match your prescription, and a special bandage contact lens is placed on your eye for several days to aid in healing.
Nearly 90% of PRK patients end up with 20/40 vision or better without glasses or contact lenses.
