What Do We Mean by “The Best LASIK Surgery”?
We mean laser eye surgery performed by the master of the process: Dr. William Lipsky. People who depend on their eyes – like people in the astronaut program – have counted on Dr. Lipsky for decades.
If you’re thinking about correcting your vision through surgery, you’ll get the most complete answers and the most complete solutions at Advanced Laser Vision. The kind of surgery you need depends on expert analysis of your vision. That’s why we offer the widest range and most advanced types of laser eye surgery.
What Is LASIK Eye Surgery?
LASIK (Laser-Assisted-In-Situ Keratomileusis) is a highly effective outpatient procedure used to correct most ranges of nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. The benefits can be tremendous for all people, especially active and social people or professions where glasses are a hindrance.
iLASIK Is Next-Generation LASIK
iLASIK is the fusion of the industry’s most stellar vision correction technologies into one premium procedure. For most people the result is dramatically improved vision. iLASIK also offers a shorter time from procedure to healing.
How LASIK Works
LASIK surgery corrects or greatly improves three common refractive errors in vision: myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism (irregular curvature of the cornea). In each of these conditions, light entering the eye through the cornea and lens fails to focus properly on the back of the eye (the retina). The result is blurred vision. iLASIK creates a detailed map of the imperfections in your eye, then reshapes the cornea to restore good eyesight without the need for glasses or contact lenses.
Am I a Candidate for LASIK Surgery?
- You need to be at least 18 years old to ensure that the eye has developed fully.
- Your vision must have been stable for at least one year before eye surgery, with no eye infection or injury during that time.
- Women who are pregnant or nursing should wait to have surgery.
- If your pupils dilate beyond seven millimeters, or if there is scarring on your cornea, LASIK will not work well for you. Advanced Laser Vision can provide alternatives.
