LASIK is a surgical procedure intended to reduce a person's dependency on glasses or contact lenses. LASIK stands for Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis and is a procedure that permanently changes the shape of the cornea, the clear covering of the front of the eye, using an excimer laser.

PRK (photorefractive keratectomy) is a more suitable laser surgery than LASIK for patients with thin-corneas, corneal issues, dry eyes or large pupils. For more information, click here.
While conventional LASIK has been revolutionary in vision correction, Custom LVC is an improved procedure that permits your surgeon to further customize the LASIK procedure to your individual eye. For more information, click here.
Using Intralase, the surgeon is able to perform the vision correction treatment using a laser to create the corneal flap, rather than cutting one with a mechanical device. For more information on using Intralase with LASIK, click here.
