One of the most exciting advances in vision correction history
Incorporating technology to create a success rate that spans the globe, the iLASIK procedure has provided life-changing results for over 30 million people worldwide. UtiliIizing the Wavescan, iFS Femtosecond laser, and VISX Star S4-IR excimer laser, we can now have the skill that brings together the best technologies to grant thousands of people a life free of glasses and contact lenses.
Often exceeding vision quality achieved with corrective lenses and glasses, LASIK goes to the source and solves visual struggles at the core. Preferred by patients, 3 to 1, LASIK has renowned results and achieves a level of comfort that is unmatched. In fact, all branches of the U.S. military and NASA recently allowed the treatment of LASIK for their servicemen and women, thanks to studies using LASIK technology.
Have Realistic Expectations
For most patients, having iLASIK means they seek to eliminate the use of glasses or corrective lenses for daily visual needs. Each patient is different, not all results are the same and we cannot guarantee desired results. Most patients, experience complete satisfaction with the results of their LASIK treatment and many experience 20/20 vision or even better!
Complications with LASIK are Exceptionally Rare
Some risks can certainly be associated with LASIK just like any other surgical procedure. LASIK is proven to be effective, safe and permanent, but requires patient selection through careful evaluation and using state of the art diagnostic testing to determine candidacy.
