LASIK

LASIK improves vision safely and precisely by reshaping the cornea to correct nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia) and astigmatism. Vision improves within minutes, and most patients eventually enjoy their independence from glasses or contact lens for functional vision.

The most commonly performed elective surgery in America, LASIK combines the advantages of two sophisticated technologies: the accuracy of the excimer laser and the benefits of lamellar keratoplasty. It is safe, precise and highly successfulThanks to LASIK, millions of people worldwide have experienced the wonder of clear vision without glasses or contact lenses.

LASIK offers many improvements over other refractive surgery procedures. These include little or no post-operative discomfort, immediate vision improvement, and the ability to drive or return to work quickly—sometimes as soon as the next day. Most patients require no corrective eyewear after surgery (although patients over 45 often need reading glasses).

Call today to schedule your consultation and find out you are a candidate for LASIK. Soon you could be tossing away your glasses or contact lenses and enjoying the freedom of clear vision.

Am I a candidate?

Not everyone is a good candidate for LASIK. When you come in for an evaluation, your eyes will be examined to determine whether LASIK or another refractive procedure is appropriate for you, and whether you are at risk for any complications. Dr. Spector will personally examine you and decide whether you will be a potential candidate.

The ideal LASIK candidate:

  • Is over 18 years old;
  • Has had stable vision for at least six months;
  • Has a healthy cornea thick enough for a flap;
  • Has refractive error(s) that fall within the treatable range;
  • Does not have a disease or condition that could impair the procedure or healing process;
  • Has been educated about the procedure including its risks and benefits.
  • Understands that the goal of surgery is to improve vision and reduce dependence on glasses and contact lenses.

During your consultation, Dr. Spector will review your eyesight and discuss whether LASIK is right for you.

Choosing a Surgeon

Choosing to undergo eye surgery is a difficult decision with long-lasting consequences. You will live with the results of your surgery for years to come. That’s why it’s so important to find an experienced surgeon equipped with the latest technology to ensure that you enjoy the best surgical result possible, with improved vision and no complications. You probably don’t want to put your eyesight in the hands of an inexperienced surgeon or budget LASIK practice.

Honesty

We don’t pressure our patients into undergoing a procedure that isn’t right for them.

During the consultation, you and Dr. Spector have a frank discussion about the advantages and risks of having laser vision correction. Only then is the patient accepted as a pre-operative LASIK candidate.

The Best Care and Attention

Unlike high-volume LASIK “factories,” we take the time to ensure that every patient receives the best care and attention. The procedure is quick—about 15 minutes per eye—but we don’t rush our patients in and out of the office to make room for the next one in line. Call us to schedule a consultation (561) 689-4500.
