Did you know 80% of what we learn is through sight?
That’s a great reason to preserve your natural vision and consider iLASIK or Advanced PRK surgery. Both iLASIK and Advanced PRK are excellent choices for people who are tired of dealing with prescription contacts and glasses.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
What type of laser eye surgery do you offer?
We offer both Intralase (iLASIK) and Advanced PRK. Traditional LASIK uses a microkeratome, or blade, to complete the procedure. iLASIK is a revolutionary, customizable, blade-free technology that's even approved by NASA and trusted by all branches of the military. Advanced Surface Ablation/PRK (Advanced PRK) is a similar procedure and offers some advantages over iLASIK especially if for those with dry eye or those at risk for eye trauma such as active duty military. Talk to your doctor to find out what procedure is right for you.
How long does the procedure take?
The actual procedure takes 5 to 15 minutes and the total time for your surgical visit is 1-2 hours.
Am I a candidate for iLASIK or PRK?
During your exam your doctor will let you know if you are a candidate. Currently there is a specific FDA approved prescription range that can be treated with iLASIK and PRK. Typically, if your eye is healthy and your prescription has been stable, the only age requirement for this surgery is that you be at least 21 years of age.
