What is LASIK Surgery?

LASIK is an acronym for Laser In-situ Keratomileusis, which simply means "to shape the cornea from within". In LASIK, the Excimer laser is used to reshape tissue from the center of the cornea rather than its surface (as in EpiLasik). Either a laser or an instrument known as a microkeratome is used to raise a partial thickness flap of corneal tissue. The flap is then lifted and the laser is applied. After 30 - 90 seconds of laser treatment, the flap is then replaced without the necessity for stitches.

All of our Los Angeles LASIK surgeons use a 100% Blade-Free LASIK system.

7 Benefits of LASIK Surgery

LASIK surgery offers a wealth of benefits for the average eyeglasses wearer. If you’ve been wearing eyeglasses for a long time, consider the benefits of LASIK.

1. Ability to See Clearly with Improved Vision

LASIK surgery offers a wealth of benefits for the average eyeglasses wearer. If you’ve been wearing eyeglasses for a long time, consider the benefits of LASIK.

2. Improvement in Self Confidence

There is no doubt that eliminating glasses can improve appearance and confidence for many. Your personal image can drastically change by taking off your glasses! Additionally you can wear many styles of sunglasses without shopping for special lenses for your eyeglasses or purchasing expensive prescription sunglasses.

3. Lasting Vision Results

Following a stabilization period of about 3 months for the eye to adjust, LASIK results are expected to be permanent. There is no need for follow-up procedures, unless the surgery over or under-corrected to repair a vision, and the patients improved eyesight will last barring any normal loss due to aging or illness.

4 . FAST results…FAST recovery

It is truly amazing how quickly you are able to see after LASIK surgery. You won’t be able to drive immediately after a LASIK surgery but most ophthalmologists estimate that patients can return to their normal schedule as soon as the day after surgery.

5. Future Eyewear Expenses Are Avoided

Vision improvement from LASIK eye surgery is permanent. You will need no more appointments for prescription updates, no need to buy prescription eyeglasses and no more need to remember to order contacts.

6. No More Glasses & Contacts

It’s estimated that the annual cost of contacts is 375 to 450 dollars per year. Add this up over 10 years and you will most definitely pay more for contacts than LASIK. So why hassle with them? LASIK will pay for itself over several years.

7. LASIK standing the test of time

LASIK was originally approved by the FDA in 1999. This procedure is still around today and millions of people are now free from glasses and contact lenses. The American Academy of Ophthalmology has also conducted a 20 Year Study on the Effectiveness and History of LASIK.
