iLASIK Information

iLASIK is redefining eyesight for a lot of people. There are a lot of myths associated with this procedure.Firstly,there are a lot of misconceptions about who can be a candidate for LASIK...the only requirements are that you should be atleast 21 years of age,should be in good general health,should have had a stable vision prescription for atleast one year and should not have any existing eye disease. That is all that the procedure requires, whether you have nearsightedness, farsightedness or an astigmatism, there's a good chance you can still have the iLASIK procedure.The technology is safe and proven too. It is also fast and virtually painless,the procedure only takes minutes,it reshapes your cornea to correct the refractive imperfections in your eye. All you have to do is get an extensive exam by an iLASIK surgeon. Computers and software are used to make an individual blue print of your eyes,which is used to drive the laser correction.A laser is used to make a thin flap in your cornea,that enables he surgeon to make the iLASIK correction. A second laser is used to make the correction to your cornea,based on your unique vision/eye charecteristics.There are two ways to make this flap: a blade or the IntraLase FS laser.The iLASIK procedure EXCLUSIVELY uses the IntraLase laser,81% of patients choose bladeless LASIK or the traditional LASIK with a blade.For some more information on what really happens during the procedure,let me tell me you that,you will be awake during the iLASIK procedure,but you may be given medication to relax,your eyes will be numbed with drops,and aside from a little pressure,you most likely won't feel a thing during the procedure.The procedure generally takes less than 10 minutes per eye!!.The vast majority of iLASIK patients will see 20/20 OR BETTER after surgery ... That could be life changing!*
The iLASIK procedure is not without risk, but wearing contacts comes with risks as well.iLASIK is an elective procedure with other alternatives including eyeglasses, photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), conventional LASIK, and other refractive surgeries. Only an eyecare professional trained in laser vision correction can determine whether you are a suitable candidate. As with any surgical procedure, there are risks associated with the treatment. It is important to discuss the risks associated with the procedure and any questions you may have about the procedure with your doctor.For all other information regardingLASIK technology and LASIK information visit
