    The Cornerstone Eye Associates LASIK Experience

    LASIK (Laser-Assisted In-Situ Keratomileusis) is a safe, reliable and painless way to improve vision and reduce or eliminate the need to wear glasses or contact lenses. LASIK changes the way light is bent, or refracted, as it passes through the cornea so that it focuses properly on the retina and objects can be seen clearly.

    During the procedure, a femtosecond laser creates a thin flap in the surface of the cornea. The flap is then lifted and an excimer laser beam reshapes the cornea’s curvature customized to your eye and your eyes’ irregularities to improve your vision. The flap is then repositioned and the healing begins immediately.

    The entire procedure takes only 15-30 minutes per eye, and patients are often ready to leave within an hour or two. The eye heals on its own within a few days.

    Some common complaints after surgery include light sensitivity, glare or halos in dim lighting, and dry eyes. These are typically temporary and will subside within a few weeks. Antibiotic and anti-inflammatory drops will be prescribed along with artificial tears to keep your eyes healthy and comfortable.

    The Three Steps of LASIK

    LASIK Step OneSTEP ONE
    The corneal flap is created and lifted
    LASIK Step TwoSTEP TWO
    An excimer laser reshapes the cornea
    LASIK Step ThreeSTEP THREE
    The flap is replaced

    What is the difference between LASIK and PRK?

    In LASIK, the first step is to create a corneal flap using a laser. Next, the laser is used to reshape the cornea underneath the flap and it is gently replaced. This flap acts as a protective bandage to aid in the healing. With PRK, no flap is created and instead, a small layer is removed and the laser is used to directly treat the front surface of the eye. The goal for both procedures is to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. During your consultation, our doctors will discuss which procedure is the best fit for you as well as the advantages and disadvantages of each procedure which may vary depending on the individual.

    Alternative Options to LASIK

    The staff is amazing and if you are looking to do LASIK, it is a life changing experience. I was very hesitant, nearly 10 years, to do this procedure. I regret not doing it 10 years ago, the results are amazing! I would 110% recommend this staff to anyone thinking about doing LASIK!
