Laser in situ keratomileusis, or LASIK, is a safe and effective treatment for a wide range of common vision problems. It is currently the most frequently performed elective surgury in US. Lasik involves the use of a laser to permanently change the shape of the cornea, the clear covering of the front of the eye. In this manner the focusing system of the eye is re-shaped allowing the patient to see clearly without the need for glasses or contact lenses.
Careful patient selection and an experienced surgeon using modern technology along with proper follow-up help to ensure the very best result.
LASIK (Laser Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis) involves the creation of corneal flap in combination with the accuracy of the excimer laser technology to correct the refractive errors – shortsightedness and / or astigmatism by reshaping the cornea so that it’s focusing onto the retina without the use of glasses or contact lenses is done with ease.
LASIK is performed on an outpatient basis and takes approximately only few minutes to perform. The procedure is almost painless. Topical anesthetic drops are used to numb the eye is used to prevent blinking. Patient is asked to focus on a target light throughout the procedure.

So what’s the difference between Bladeless LASIK and traditional?
The Bladeless LASIK option utilize a precise, high-energy femtosecond laser instead of a microkeratome blade to create the flap of corneal tissue. Since being invented in the 1990s., the femtosecond laser has been incredibly successful. This laser continues to provide LASIK patients and their eye doctors with bladeless alternative to traditional laser eye surgery.

Custom LASIK (Wavefront guided LASIK) – Accurate & Precise
This technology captures the unique imperfections in your vision that could not have been measured and corrected before. It provides a detailed map of your eye – much like a finger print, because no two eyes are alike. This new level of measurement provides 25 times more precision than standard measurement used for glasses and contact lenses. This technology aims to eliminate irregular focus to the finest details to create a superior optical system, capable of producing “supervision”.
The system provides patient-specific analysis that leads to patient-specific solution.
