LasikPlus Treatment Options
Everyone’s eyes are unique. Our doctors carefully assess each patient’s vision needs before determining which treatment option would be best for that individual. From LASIK to cataract removal, all procedures are performed differently and benefit different patients.
LASIK and PRK
What is LASIK? LASIK corrects near or distance vision as well as astigmatism by correcting the way light hits the cornea. LASIK is best for patients 18 or older who are otherwise in good health and are not suffering from any eye health condition. Learn more about LASIK & PRK.
Cataract Removal and Lens Replacement
What is cataract lens replacement? The term cataract refers to a cloudy lens within the eye. Cataracts are most common for patients over 50 years old. Typical symptoms include blurred, cloudy vision, difficulty driving at night or reading in dim light. Cataract removal surgery is the only way to treat cataracts.

Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL)
What is an ICL? An ICL is an implantable lens made of a thin, soft, flexible material called collamer. In order to insert the lens, the doctor uses a laser to create two small incisions behind the iris (the colored part of the eye). The doctor must fold the lens to insert it, but it quickly unfolds to a thin layer that is neither seen nor felt by the patient. Learn more about Implantable Collamer Lenses.
Refractive Lens Exchange
What is refractive lens exchange? The procedure for refractive lens exchange is virtually the same as cataract lens replacement, except the lens being removed is not cloudy — it is clear but not focusing light correctly. Learn more about Refractive Lens Exchange.
