Are you tired of wearing glasses or contact lenses every day just to see properly? If poor vision is getting in the way of your active lifestyle, LASIK eye surgery can be a life-changing solution.
LASIK is capable of correcting a wide range of refractive disorders – including myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism – freeing you from your dependence on eyewear. To find out if you are a good candidate for LASIK, call us today at (972) 737-1181 to schedule a screening.
How Does LASIK Work?
Refractive errors are caused by an irregularly shaped cornea, which makes it difficult for your eyes to focus light properly. LASIK (Laser In-Situ Keratomileusis) works by re-shaping your cornea to allow for better, sharper focusing power.
Dr. Brooks uses iLASIK to provide patients with the best possible results. iLASIK is an advanced bladeless method that uses a combination of the best LASIK technology currently available, including:
- IntraLase™ – A high-precision laser used to create the corneal flap.
- CustomVue™ – Using VISX WaveScan imaging technology, CustomVue™ creates a detailed three-dimensional map of each unique irregularity in your eyes, including the optical distortions that are not a part of your prescription. CustomVue™ allows for fully customized treatment, minimizing the already low incidence of complications and providing you with the best vision correction possible.
- VISX Star S4™ Laser – An advanced refractive laser with active tracking and iris registration, which allows it to follow your eye if it moves involuntarily during the LASIK procedure. If your eye makes a significant movement, the laser will automatically pause until it is back in the right position.
Is LASIK Right for You?
During a screening evaluation, Dr. Brooks will examine your eyes, review your medical history, and ensure you meet other basic requirements for LASIK.
