What is LASIK Surgery?
LASIK (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis) is a type of corrective eye surgery that uses a laser to correct all types of refractive errors such as nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism.
Is LASIK Surgery Right For You?
Before you decide to have LASIK surgery, visit one of our eye specialists at the Eye Consultants Clinic to talk about whether or not it is the right procedure for you. To be a suitable candidate for LASIK surgery, our eye specialists evaluate the following criteria: age, general health and eye health in particular, eye injuries, nursing/pregnancy, dry eye condition, contacts, corneal thickness. LASIK eye surgery might not be the best option if your eye glasses or contact lens prescription is still changing. People with thin corneas or with certain medical conditions, such as dry eyes, might not be good candidates for LASIK surgery either.

Corrective Eye Surgery using the Ultra-LASIK Technique
Ultra lasik is a surgical technique superior to Lasik where a very thin corneal flap (100 µm) is created and reshaped for each patient using an optimized excimer laser software to correct for short sight, astigmatism, long sight and presbyopia. The advantage over conventional Lasik technique is fast healing and quick visual recovery, so patients can resume their daily lives within 24-48 hours. The Ultra Lasik technique also eliminates the need for the patients in a dark room as part of their evaluation. If a patient is not a candidate for Ultra Lasik, a special lens (Intraocular Lenses) can be implanted inside the eye to correct the vision.
