We have a wide range of services to help you decrease your dependency on glasses and contact lenses. Our humidity- and temperature-controlled laser suite is custom designed for optimal laser accuracy and patient comfort.

Conductive keratoplasty (CK) is used to treat farsightedness and presbyopia. CK shrinks tissue to reshape the cornea. With this procedure, the surgeon uses a radio frequency probe instead of a laser. No cutting or tissue removal is necessary. The procedure takes about three minutes.

iLASIK – Intralase plus CustomVue LASIK with wavefront technology helps our surgeons identify, measure and correct eye imperfections 25 times more accurately than with eyeglasses or contact lenses.

Laser-assisted epithelial keratomileusis (LASEK) may be a good option for people who are not good candidates for LASIK. LASEK uses the same procedure as photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), except the outer surface layer of the cornea is rolled back into a flap before treatment. After the laser reshaping, the flap is rolled back over the cornea. This procedure may be recommended for people with thin corneas.

Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) treats low to moderate amounts of astigmatism and nearsightedness. This may be the best choice for patients with thinner corneas or who participate in activities, such as contact sports.

Verisyse™ Phakic IOL is a good option for people when custom LASIK is not. During this virtually painless procedure, a small incision is made in the cornea and an intraocular lens (IOL or micro lens) is placed in the space between the iris and the cornea. Then the incision is closed with microscopic stitches that dissolve on their own. Available for prescriptions from -5.00 to -20.00.
