About LASIK Eye Surgery

LASIK is a procedure that corrects vision by reshaping the cornea using the precision of excimer laser technology. It is one of the most popular forms of vision correction due to its accuracy, safety, quick recovery time, wide range of correction and minimal discomfort. The entire procedure takes only a few minutes, both eyes can be done the same day, and no needles, stitches or patches are necessary.

A Closer Look at LASIK Surgery: Step-by-step

Step 1

Using wavefront technology, we take a digital image and map of your entire optical system- it’s like the fingerprint of your eye. This detailed information is evaluated by Dr. Solomon and is transferred to the laser.

Step 2

Dr. Solomon uses the safety and precision of a computer-controlled laser to create a corneal flap. He gently folds this flap back to prepare the eye for the treatment laser.

Step 3

A cool laser beam is then used to reshape the cornea and reduce sources of irregularities. Dr. Solomon uses multiple tracking and alignment systems to ensure both safety and accuracy throughout your entire procedure.

Step 4

Finally, Dr. Solomon moves the protective flap that was created in step two back to its original position. The cornea begins healing immediately, and the patient can return home.
