LASIK Eye Surgery with Vistasite Eye Care
Laser Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis, better known as LASIK eye surgery is a type of eye surgery which uses a specially designed excimer laser to correct visual acuity problems including nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism by respectively leveling the cornea, increasing the cornea's curvature, or correcting the cornea's irregular shape.
We Provide LASIK Eye Surgery Consultation for Pre-Operative and Post-Operative Care
Our eye care specialists provide patients with premium pre and post-operative care to ensure they go into surgery prepared and heal well with the proper care after. We carefully evaluate all of our surgery candidates for safety and efficacy of the procedure elected.
In a thorough evaluation, our eye doctor determines whether each patient can be considered a candidate for successful LASIK eye surgery. An outpatient procedure, after LASIK surgery, we schedule regular checkups to evaluate each patient's post-operative progress, monitoring the health of the eyes and visual acuity. We stick with our patients through every step of the healing process to ensure optimal eye health and vision.
What to Expect During LASIK
A LASIK eye surgery procedure only requires about fifteen to twenty minutes, but you can expect to be at an eye surgery office for a total of about one and a half hours. During the procedure, you will be seated in a reclining chair and possibly administered medication to help you relax. The eye doctor will then numb your eyes using drops, support eyelids in an open position, and stabilize the eyes from moving.
The surgeon will then create a small incision in the cornea, allowing the laser to access the proper structure of the eyes. Controlled by a computer, the excimer laser will correct the eyes' lenses. After lens correction is finished, the surgeon will replace the corneal flap, which will begin to heal right away.
