Changing The Way You See the World
LASIK eye surgery is a procedure that corrects certain vision problems, reducing or eliminating the need for eyeglasses or corrective lenses. LASIK eye surgery changes the shape of your cornea. Our Custom Vue LASIK procedure makes it possible to perform customized refractive surgeries using measurements individually tailored to your eyes.
This allows us to correct the very specific refractive errors that obscure each patient’s vision so you can enjoy the best post-operative vision quality possible. Other benefits of the CustomVue process include faster treatment time and the elimination of pupil dilation.
What’s the Difference Between LASIK and PRK?
PRK is another type of LASIK procedure. After a consultation, some patients will be deemed more suitable for PRK due to their corneas’ different anatomical attributes. Attributes such as thickness/thinness, curvature and scarring all play a role in why some patients are selected for PRK instead of LASIK. PRK is just like LASIK except it is performed differently.
The difference is the way the laser removes the skin that covers the cornea. With PRK, no flap is created. Instead, after the lasering is completed, a contact lens bandage is placed over the cornea to allow the skin to grow back underneath.
- PRK needs a slightly longer recovery time.
- During the healing time, minimal light sensitivity and blurry vision are common.
