Why LASIK is better at LasikPlus

Whether you suffer from nearsightedness, farsightedness or even astigmatism, LasikPlus surgeons can transform your vision. Their extensive training and experience allows them to quickly correct your vision exclusively using  100-percent bladeless laser technology.

Walk through the experience step by step to understand how the LasikPlus LASIK experience starts with a simple FREE consultation and ends with you seeing 20/20* again.

Who Is A Candidate for LASIK?

Advances in laser vision correction mean more and more people are excellent candidates for the procedure. Generally, you are a good candidate if:

• You are at least 18 years of age

• You are in good general health

• You have had a stable vision prescription for at least one year

• You are not currently pregnant and have not been nursing in the last 6 months

Schedule a free consultation today to meet with our experienced clinical team and receive a comprehensive eye examination to determine candidacy.

LASIK Commonly Addresses

Get Rid of Reading Glasses

You may have heard of monovision as a way to correct the vision impairment caused by aging known as presbyopia. Presbyopia occurs as the lens of the eye loses elasticity, making it hard to focus on objects that are up close and resulting in a need for reading glasses, bifocals or contacts. Monovision compensates for presbyopia by correcting the eyes separately — one for distance and one for viewing objects up-close.

Most patients adjust quickly to this procedure, thus eliminating their need for glasses or contacts. 

Bladeless LASIK

Bladeless LASIK, also referred to as iLASIK™, IntraLASIK™, and all-laser LASIK, involves the use of cool pulses of light to prepare the cornea for treatment. Immediately following corneal preparation, your cornea will be reshaped using a cool ultra-violet laser to evaporate a small amount of corneal tissue — less than the thickness of a human hair.

Your eyes will be completely numbed with anesthetic drops, so you will experience minimal to no discomfort. Because this method allows the surgeon to tailor the procedure to the shape of your individual eyes, the results are excellent outcomes and high patient satisfaction.

LASIK is an easy 5 step process

At LasikPlus, your treatment is comfortable and quick.

1 Step 1: Your Initial Eye Exam

Through a FREE, 90-minute consultation, we determine if you’re a candidate for laser vision correction. You will undergo many tests similar to those you’ve experienced during your annual eye exam, as well as additional scans that tell us important information about your eyes as they relate to LASIK.

Free Consultation Includes:

  • Check for visual acuity and visual field (peripheral vision)
  • Measurement of Corneal thickness and topography (shape)
  • Reading your previous eye prescription using your glasses lenses
  • Examination of your pupils for reactivity
  • Evaluation of the muscle function and dominance of your eyes
  • Assessment of your eye health with pupil dilation and slit-lamp test
  • Reading your eye’s pressure to check for glaucoma
  • Inspection of the peripheral retina for health
  • Assessment of your overall medical health
  • Discussion about your hobbies and occupation

All of these factors help your surgeon determine if you are a candidate for laser vision correction, and if so, which procedure is best for your eyes. Once complete, this exam aids your surgeon in developing your unique LasikPlus Customized Treatment Plan.

2 Step 2: Are You a LASIK Candidate?

Using the results of your comprehensive eye examination, your doctor will create your own personal customized treatment plan tailored to your prescription, eye anatomy and personal needs.

At LasikPlus, we know that laser vision correction is not a one-size-fits-all solution. In fact, to provide you with the best outcome for your vision, numerous factors must be taken into account to provide you with a LasikPlus customized treatment plan.

3 Step 3: The LasikPlus LASIK Procedure

At LasikPlus, the LASIK procedure takes less than 15-minutes per eye.

On your procedure day, you should expect to be with us for about 90 minutes to 2 hours. This allows adequate time for your registration, preparation, and final eye testing, and gives you an opportunity to relax and enjoy this life-changing experience.

4 Step 4: Immediate Results

Upon sitting up in the treatment room, you will immediately be able to see. If you are like most of our patients, you will sit up and tell us the exact time from the clock hanging across the treatment room! *

After a quick check, you will be provided with protective eyewear and released to go home. Even though we may ask you to keep your eyes closed on the drive home, we realize you, like most patients, will take a peek, only to be surprised that that you can already read the street signs.*

Your significant vision clarity will continue to improve over the following days and weeks.

5 Step 5: Post-Operative Care

After the procedure, you may experience slight discomfort or a feeling similar to having an eyelash or dry contact lens in your eye. This sensation generally disappears after the first day.

After 24 hours, you can resume reading, using a computer or tablet, watching television and light exercise. Your LasikPlus team will guide you through all the details of post-operative care and into your new life of improved vision before and after your treatment is completed.

When you choose LasikPlus for your laser vision correction, you become part of our family. That’s why we schedule regular post-operative visits after your procedure. Your treatment day isn’t the end of your LASIK journey; it’s the beginning of a new life with sharper images and brighter colors.

Life After LASIK

At LasikPlus, you're family. That’s why we schedule post-op visits periodically after your treatment.

Your First 24 Hours

Immediately Following LASIK

After your surgeon completes a post-LASIK check, you will be given protective glasses to wear and can be driven home. We recommend that you relax and take a nap for several hours with your protective glasses on.

Be sure not to rub, poke or touch your eyes. If you experience irritation, use the artificial tears provided by your doctor. Also follow your doctor’s instructions on using your steroid and antibiotic eye drops.

Use this time to rest and relax. For the first 24 hours, it is best to avoid straining your eyes through reading, computer work or watching TV. You should wear your protective glasses to bed for 1 week to avoid accidentally touching your eyes in your sleep.
