LASIK

 

The procedure involves reshaping the front part of the eye called the cornea with an excimer laser. First, the surface cells of the cornea called the epithelium are temporally hinged to one side using a device called an Intralase.  The laser is then pulsed onto the stromal layer of the cornea and once all the “reshaping” is accomplished the hinge “flap” is put back into place which provides a relatively quick and painless recovery.  To take Lasik surgery even farther we now have IntraLase ®.  IntraLase ® is the first all-laser technique for making the corneal flap during the first step of the LASIK procedure.  Instead of using the traditional microkeratome, the surgeon uses an IntraLase infrared beam to precisely create a microthin flap.  IntraLase allows the surgeon to produce a “flap” of exact depth, diameter, and hinge location and coupled with WAVEFRONT Lasik provides the patient with a totally customized and personalized procedure.
 

Dr. Johnson has an extensive background in lasik surgery co-management dating back to 1993.  He has attended nationally renowned laser centers, seminars, and clinics throughout the United States and Canada. Dr. Johnson will evaluate your eyes to see if LASIK surgery is appropriate for you and which procedure would be ideal for your eyes.  We will discuss these and all other questions that you may have.

  • Do your eyes and current prescription “qualify” you for LASIK?

  • Do you really want the procedure?

  • How much does it cost?

  • What are the risks involved in the surgery?

  • What kind of results can I expect?

  • Is it safe?
