LASIK Surgical Procedure

Considered to be 2nd Generation Laser Vision Correction, Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis, also known as LASIK, is the most popular refractive surgery performed in the United States. This procedure is often used to treat patients with Myopia (nearsighted), Hyperopia (farsighted), and have astigmatism. LASIK requires the use of two lasers, one of which is a VisuMax Femtosecond Laser. This laser is used to gently create a flap at the top layer of the cornea.

The patient is then escorted to the most advanced excimer laser with state-of-the-art wave technology, the EX500 Excimer Laser. This laser reshapes the cornea under a protective layer of tissue. The EX500 Excimer laser is extremely precise and uses cool ultraviolet light to treat the cornea. At this point, Drs. Shelby and Coleman will reposition your flap back into its original position where the healing process will begin. Immediately after the procedure when our patients sit up, they already notice a vast improvement in clarity and vision from prior to the procedure. Continual visual recovery occurs over 24 hours, and after waking from your post-op nap, there is minimal discomfort after surgery.
