Not all refractive surgery is the same. There are different kinds of laser vision correction procedures available and patients who were not good candidates in the past may be perfect candidates for newer procedures, including Lasik.
Lasik is a technology that has evolved to provide a level of accuracy previously unachievable. It is an all laser, completely blade-less procedure that is safe and effective, and is used in over 80% of laser vision correction cases in the United States. In fact, Lasik is approved by NASA and the US Military for Naval and Air Force Pilots.
The Lasik procedure, which we perform in our office in Sandwich, MA, is fast and virtually painless. Lasik can treat astigmatism, near and far sightedness, and most patients can return to normal activities the day following the procedure.
While Lasik is the most popular laser vision correction procedure, it is just one of the laser surgery services we offer at Associated Eye Surgeons. We also offer PRK, or Photo Refractive Keratectomy.
