There is a Better Way to See
LASIK—short for Laser-Assisted-In-Situ Keratomileusis—is the most commonly performed laser eye procedure in the world. It’s one of the safest and most effective ways to correct vision, and NVISION surgeons are leaders in the LASIK field. NVISION Eye Centers offer Custom LASIK, a procedure more customized to your individual eyes.
Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is a common type of refractive error where close objects appear clearly, but distant objects appear blurry.
Hyperopia, also known as farsightedness, affects nearly one in four people. Those with hyperopia can see distant objects very well but have difficulty focusing on objects that are close.
Astigmatism causes your vision to be blurred at both near and far distances. It occurs when your cornea is shaped more like a football than a basketball.
Common Questions About LASIK at NVISION
What are the advantages of LASIK over other laser vision correction procedures?
Compared to PRK or LASEK, LASIK healing times are significantly shorter, with most LASIK patients returning to work and normal life very shortly after their LASIK procedures. Noticeable vision improvement after LASIK is virtually overnight, and it’s very common to treat both eyes on the same day.
What conditions does LASIK treat?
Custom LASIK surgery can correct almost any refractive vision condition, so you’re likely a candidate. Conditions include nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism (football shaped cornea).
Do most people have perfect 20/20 vision after laser vision correction?
Although there is no guarantee, most NVISION patients who receive laser vision correction surgery do attain 20/20 vision. Typically, NVISION patients receive the very best corrected vision they have when wearing glasses or contacts, only they now have it without the need for either one.
What is the difference between Custom LASIK at NVISION and standard LASIK surgery advertised so inexpensively?
The first and most important aspect to understand is that LASIK is not performed with just one technique or technology. At NVISION we utilize an all-laser approach, creating the corneal flap with a state-of-the-art Femtosecond Laser, which is significantly safer than a mechanical blade approach used at some other clinics. More importantly, NVISION utilizes highly advanced excimer lasers with anti-glare patterns to provide not only incredible day vision quality but also night vision. NVISION surgeons have also been leaders in both wavefront-guided and topography-guided treatments.
Is Custom LASIK right for me?
The best way to determine if laser vision correction surgery is right for you is to start with an eye exam by your optometrist or ophthalmologist. The doctor will examine your eyes and determine if you have a prescription suitable for laser vision correction surgery. If your doctor is unfamiliar with LASIK, we are happy to provide a complimentary consultation. At NVISION, our doctors consider each patient’s unique needs in making recommendations.
How soon after laser surgery can I resume my normal activities?
It’s important to follow the specific plan that your surgeon will give you, because every patient and procedure is different. Most patients can expect this approximate timeline: After 24 hours, it’s usually fine to return to work and resume normal daily activities. Once examined by your doctor the next morning, most patients are cleared to resume driving. By the end of the first week, patients may resume exercise and wear eye makeup. Patients should wait one month to return to contact sports.
