LASIK Surgery
Our Focus is Your Vision
LASIK is an abbreviation for Laser in situ keratomileusis.  LASIK surgery is done to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism.
LASIK ProcedureThe VISX Star S4 IR Excimer laser can reshape the surface of the eye without creating heat. This change in the surface curvature affects how light is focused onto the retina.  Standard LASIK treatments are based on the refraction obtained in the office.  CustomeVue wavefront treatments use a computer generated analysis of the entire vision system to create a custom treatment that is very precise and specific to the eye, analogous to the specificity of an individual’s fingerprint.  Wavefront treatments can fix optical problems that go beyond what we can fix with glasses or contacts.
Not all patients are candidates for LASIK surgery.  Patients who are interested in Laser Vision Correction should have a consultation with Dr. David George.  He will obtain measurements of the cornea's shape and thickness, as well as perform a complete eye examination to determine if you are a LASIK candidate. Some patients, for example those with very thin corneas, may be better candidates for a surface treatment like photorefractive keratectomy (PRK).
LASIK in 8 steps
LASIK is not generally covered by insurance as it is considered cosmetic surgery.  You can also use your Flex Spending Account to help cover the additional cost of LASIK; this saves you money by using pretax dollars.  Financing can often be arranges for those who qualify by Care Credit.  Contact us today to learn more about payment options.
