15 LIFE CHANGING minutes
Life without contacts or glasses would be a whole new life. But when you begin to think about iLasik surgery, there are so many questions. And not all providers are alike! That's why understanding how to get the best possible results, in the safest possible way is so important.
What is iLasik?
iLASIK is a type of corrective eye surgery
primarily designed to correct astigmatism, hyperopia and myopia. It's similar to traditional LASIK surgery except that it uses an all laser procedure. It combines the Intralase LASIK procedure, which uses a laser to create the flap, with the personalization of the VISX CustomVueTM
. This process is measured through the WavePrint System. This system allows your doctor to personalize your laser vision correction. Your vision is unique and as individual as your own fingerprint. The Wave-Print System gives the doctor treatment options that are truly modified to your visual needs. This may provide greater accuracy in the shape, size and thickness of the corneal flap.
Who qualifies for iLASIK?
iLASIK can treat a very broad range of nearsightedness, astigmatism and farsightedness in people who are at least 18 years old, in good general health and have no eye diseases.
