More Refractive Procedures

  • LASIK uses an excimer laser to reshape the cornea and treats nearsightedness, farsightedness & astigmatism. A corneal flap is made for quicker recovery time.
    PRK uses an excimer laser to reshape the front surface of the cornea. It is similar to LASIK and treats nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism but has a longer healing process.
    Refractive IOL's are upgradeable lens options that replace cataracts and treat astigmatism OR distance, near and in-between vision.
    LRI are often combined with cataract surgery to reduce pre-existing astigmatism. The result is better vision without glasses.
    CLE removes the noncataractous natural lens of the eye. This procedure is typically for patients who are not laser vision candidates with severe nearsightedness or farsightedness.
    CK uses radioactive energy to reshape the cornea. It corrects mild hyperopia and reduces the need for reading glasses when over the age of 40.
