LASIK Santa Rosa, CA

What Is LASIK?

LASIK eye surgery is the most technologically advanced way to reduce your dependency on glasses or contact lenses. The process involves the use of an excimer laser to reshape the cornea or the surface of the eye.

This eye surgery alters the way light rays enter the eyes to achieve focus, in much the same way they are altered through wearing glasses or contacts.

Note that the amount of nearsightedness that can be corrected is affected by the amount of corneal tissue that can be safely removed from your eyes.

An advantage to LASIK is that the surface cells of the cornea remain intact. This allows for faster stabilization of your vision and enhanced comfort.

How Is LASIK Performed?

LASIK eye surgery is a two-step process.

  • First, a flap is created in the cornea with a precise laser known as IntraLase. The flap is then gently lifted to move to the second step.
  • Next, an excimer laser is used to reshape the cornea or surface of the eye. The Allegretto Wave┬« excimer laser sculpts your prescription to the middle layer of the cornea. The flap is then laid back into place where it adheres like a decal, without sutures.
