Laser Eye Surgery at Optical ExpressThere are several options for your laser eye surgery
There are two methods of laser eye surgery; LASIK and LASEK, both of which may be enhanced with wavefront, a procedure that tailors your treatment to the minute specifications of your eyes. LASIK and LASEK are highly effective procedures that are suitable for most low, moderate and high prescriptions.
The laser eye surgery treatment that's right for you will depend on your suitability and unique requirements, which will be established during your free consultation.
LASIK (Laser-Assisted-In-Situ-Keratomileusis) eye surgery comprises two computer-guided, cool lasers. The first creates a protective layer to allow your surgeon access to the cornea beneath the surface of your eye, the second to correct your vision.
LASEK (Laser-Assisted-Epithelial-Keratomileusis) is similar, however only one laser is used to correct your vision, after the surgeon has temporarily folded aside a thin layer of cells to allow access to the cornea.
Both can be enhanced with wavefront, advanced technology that maps and assesses the distinct characteristic of your eyes more precisely than standard treatment.
NEW for 2013 – Optical Express offers iLASIK and LASEK treatment with wavefront treatment powered by iDesign, the industry's most advanced, high-definition measurement device for wavefront treatment.
