Laser Procedures

LASIK

LASIK is the most advanced treatment for nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. This procedure begins with an Intralase laser creating a microscopically thin “flap” on the surface of the eye. The flap is lifted back and a computer-guided laser treats the eye to correct the blurred vision. The flap is then replaced and self-adheres. No stitches, no cutting, no blades, no eye patch or medicines other than eye drops are used.

PRK

PRK is similar to LASIK, without the cornea flap. A computer-guided laser treats the eye to correct the blurred vision from myopia, hyperopia, or astigmatism. No stitches, no cutting, no blades, no eye patch or medicines other than eye drops are used.

Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty

SLT is a gentle laser treatment that targets the natural drainage system in the eye, allowing it to drain more. Laser can often be used to replace one or more glaucoma drops.

Peripheral Iridotomy

This is a treatment for “narrow angles”– a laser is used to create a tiny hole in your iris to open up the drainage system in the eye.

YAG Capsulotomy

A laser is used to open a clear window in a cloudy capsular pouch that houses your artificial lens after cataract surgery. It is completely painless.
