I got my eye exam yesterday. They have some of the latest equipment and Dr Yee was thorough in her exam and explaining the details to me. As a bonus, they weren't pushy in selling me accessaries which I appreciate. I would be back for the next exam.

Is LASIK painful?

It is quick, almost painless and there is little or no discomfort after the procedure. Vision recovery is rapid – patients report seeing 20/20 within 24 hours.

LASIK corrects nearsightedness, farsightedness and even astigmatism. With a technique called mono-vision, it can reduce the need for reading glasses among patients over age 40 who wear bifocals.

Is LASIK dangerous?

Many people who wear eyeglasses or contact lenses dream about walking out the door each day with no eyewear – and still being able to see crisp and clear.

LASIK can turn that dream into reality. LASIK can reduce or eliminate nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. During the procedure, your eye surgeon will direct the cool light of an excimer laser to reshape your cornea.

First, a corneal flap will be made on the eye’s surface, which is then peeled back to provide access to the laser. This advanced procedure has exceptional results and safety.

What is Wavefront Lasik?

Wavefront Lasik, also called Custom LASIK, is the latest in laser vision correction today. Wavefront Technology improves the visual results of patients and provides tremendous advantages over standard LASIK.

Wavefront Lasik is a diagnostic as well as a treatment approach, allowing your eye doctor to perform precise measurements of your eyes. Your eye doctor will first perform a WavePrint Map, a detailed map of your eyes, similar to a "fingerprint" of your eye. In the treatment phase, the laser utilized the data and measurements from the WavePrint Map to correct the vision.
