LASIK

What is LASIK?

LASIK is short for “laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis” and is the most common type of laser vision correction. It involves creating a hinged, partial thickness corneal flap, using a microkeratome blade or a laser, and then gently lifting the flap to expose the underlying corneal tissue. An excimer laser is then used to reshape the underlying corneal tissue. The flap is laid back down to act as a natural bandage and the eye is allowed to heal on its own. LASIK is used to correct near-sightedness, far-sightedness, and astigmatism.

Custom LASIK

Custom LASIK uses advanced wavefront-guided technology to measure the unique optical characteristics of one’s eye, and uses these specific measurements to help guide the laser correction during the LASIK procedure.

This technology is designed to reduce high-order optical aberrations within one’s eye and improve the visual quality after surgery.

Custom treatment can be done in combination with any form of laser vision correction.

iLASIK or intraLASIK (all-laser LASIK) Vision Correction in Saint George UT

iLASIK refers to a specific type of LASIK that utilizes two separate lasers. A special femtosecond laser, instead of a microkeratome blade, is used to create the hinged, partial thickness corneal flap at the beginning of the procedure.

A second laser, the excimer laser, is used to sculpt the underlying corneal tissue. The laser flap can be precisely adjusted to accommodate for special cases where the corneal curvature or thickness may not be suitable for using a standard microkeratome.
