Custom LASIK is the most advanced laser technology available. Custom LASIK laser treatments are based upon the unique visual characteristics of your eye.

Intralasik

The creation of the initial flap with conventional LASIK is made using a mechanical device. The IntraLASIK procedure uses a precision laser device to create potentially a more precise flap without the use of a blade.

LASIK

LASIK is a procedure for nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia) and astigmatism.  An excimer laser reshapes the partially-exposed central cornea under a thin corneal flap. The flap is then replaced over the cornea without the need for sutures.

     
PRK PRK animations  

PRK

PRK is done without any incisions at all. The cornea is reshaped by the laser to compensate for the effects of nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.

     
Epi-LASEK LASEK animations  

LASEK

Laser Epithelial Keratomileusis (LASEK) is a simple technique based on the detachment of the epithelial flap by an alcohol solution prior to the application of laser energy, which resculpts the cornea. This hybrid procedure is an advanced form of PRK.

     
CK Conductive Keratoplasty animations  

Conductive Keratoplasty

Conductive Keratoplasty (CK) involves the use of radio frequency energy applied to the cornea in a specific pattern to correct hyperopia (farsightedness).

     
Intraocular Contact Lens animations  

Intraocular Contact Lens (ICL)

Intraocular Contact Lens (ICL) is a procedure where a permanent lens is placed into the eye to reduce and/or eliminate extreme levels of nearsightedness and farsightedness.

Vision

Clear vision occurs when a number of factors combine to produce optical perfection: Light entering the eye through a well-formed cornea focuses precisely on the retina; the resulting image is sharp and bright.

     
Monovision Monovision animations  

Monovision

Monovision involves one eye, usually the dominant eye, being corrected for distance viewing, and the other eye being corrected for near viewing.
