What Does LASIK Eye Surgery Fix?

Laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) is a refractive surgery that reshapes your cornea through the use of lasers. LASIK uses an excimer laser to remove a thin layer of corneal tissue. It’s a quick and precise procedure that can correct a refractive error like myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism, giving you clear vision without glasses or contact lenses.

LASIK is typically painless, its results are immediate, and its recovery period is short. In many cases, our Dallas laser vision correction can be performed on both eyes in under 15 minutes, and since it’s an outpatient procedure, you will be able to relax in the comfort of your own home during the healing process.

Advanced LASIK Technology

If you’re nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism, you may be one of the many people who can benefit from our Dallas LASIK surgery. Laser eye surgery can correct vision problems that cause blurry vision. This highly effective and very safe outpatient procedure has restored clear, sharp eyesight to millions of people all over the world — and it generally takes less than 15 minutes for both eyes. Recovery time is minimal, and the vast majority of patients report being able to return to normal activities and see clearly without the use of their glasses or contact lenses within a matter of days. This painless procedure involves a very short recovery time, but LASIK patients are advised to arrange transportation to their homes. Your eye surgeon will discuss post-treatment care with you and give you eye drops as needed.

Our eye care center has long been at the forefront of state-of-the-art technology, and we’re proud to be able to offer our Dallas patients LASIK surgery using the Wavelight Contoura suite, which uses 3-D technology to create a highly customizable LASIK procedure.

Are There Non-LASIK Options?

There are some eye conditions LASIK can’t be used to treat. No need to worry, though — we offer a variety of alternative procedures that can safely and effectively correct your vision. If you have extreme farsightedness or thin corneas, you may benefit from a clear lens exchange procedure, which, like cataract surgery, replaces the natural lens in your eye with an artificial one. Other procedures, including photorefractive keratectomy and implantable contact lenses, are also available.
