Lasik Eye Surgery in Derry
Correcting Your Vision
LASIK is the most effective and safest refractive surgery procedure to correct
your vision. As
eye care physicians, we understand the frustration that comes from dealing with glasses or
contact lenses. This breakthrough procedure provides you with crystal
clear vision. Our eye surgeons are committed to helping you achieve better vision.
While LASIK complications are rare, when they do occur, they are often
related to the oscillating blade associated with traditional microkeratornes.
Metal blades can cause uneven flap edges, which can result in abnormal
corneal surfaces and vision problems including irregular astigmatism.
They can also create incomplete or incorrectly formed “buttonhole”
flaps that can result in vision-threatening scars. When lasers are used
for the LASIK procedure, there is less risk of complications.
For those who have mild / moderate myopia, hyperopia, and / or astigmatism,
as well as adequate corneal thickness, bladeless LASIK surgery may be
a great option. Bladeless / laser LASIK surgery creates flaps via infrared
laser energy that allows tiny, overlapping spaces to appear directly below
the corneal surface. The femtosecond laser used in the bladeless LASIK
procedure uses incredibly high speeds, allowing targeted tissues to be
divided at a molecular level without heating or negatively impacting surrounding tissues.
As part of our LASIK surgery we do the following:
- Use an Intralase Laser to create a thin corneal flap
- Lift the corneal flap to apply a laser beam on the cornea
- Reshape the tissue of the cornea
- Replace flap over treated area
The cornea flap protects and helps your eyes so you receive enhanced vision
more rapidly. Correcting your vision is our priority. With this state-of-the-art
technology, we can treat your eyes blade-free. Through this remarkable
