Location Information

During the procedure, your surgeon will use a laser to reshape your cornea, allowing light to refract correctly so your vision is clear. LASIK can correct various refractive errors, including myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism.

Serious complications from LASIK are exceedingly rare, allowing patients to enjoy clear vision without issues.

If you need LASIK in Baltimore, look for a surgeon who has performed thousands of surgeries and has access to the latest LASIK technology. You’ll start with an assessment to gauge whether you are a good candidate for LASIK.

Baltimore Vision Correction Procedures

Today’s life-changing procedures make it possible to improve your vision to 20/20—or better.

  • This is the most common type of laser eye surgery, during which a surgeon will reshape your cornea with a laser.

    LASIK corrects nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.

  • Photoreactive keratectomy (PRK) is another type of refractive laser eye surgery that corrects nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.

    The surgery removes the outer corneal layer so it is a good option for people with thin corneas who may not be candidates for LASIK.

  • Small incision lenticule extraction (SMILE) is another type of laser eye surgery that can correct nearsightedness and astigmatism. It cannot correct farsightedness.

    SMILE may be a better choice for some people than LASIK, particularly those with thin corneas.

  • Refractive lens exchange (RLE)is a surgical means of correcting vision in which the natural lens of the eye is removed and replaced with an artificial lens. The IOL (intraocular lens) that is put into the eye can correct vision issues, allowing patients to see clearly without corrective lenses.

    RLE can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.

  • Implantable collamer lens (ICL) surgery involves putting an artificial lens in the eye. Unlike RLE, the natural lens is not removed, and the artificial lens is placed between the natural lens and the iris.

    ICL can correct nearsightedness and astigmatism. It is sometimes referred to as an implantable contact lens.
