PRK

PRK

The predecessor to LASIK, Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK) is an alternative technique used to help many individuals who struggle with nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism to achieve clearer vision and independence from glasses or contact lenses. Similar to LASIK, the procedure involves first removing the outer layer of cells of the cornea known as the epithelium and second treating or smoothing the corneal tissue using an excimer laser to deliver you your best vision yet – free of contacts & glasses! With advents in topography-guided procedures, patients are experiencing the vibrancy of colors and textures in a whole new prism of light!

Visian Implantable Contact Lens

Visian Implantable Contact Lens

The Implantable Contact Lens (ICL), also known as phakic intraocular lens (IOL), is an excellent alternative for patients who may not be good candidates for traditional LASIK or PRK treatment because of a high level of myopia, thin corneas, or due to suffering from dry eyes. The procedure involves placing the ICL behind the iris of the eye by making a small incision to correct for myopia, or near-sightedness, as well as astigmatism. In under a half hour, the lens is rolled up, and implanted in the eye where it gently opens, virtually undetectable.

ICL has a treatment has a 99% patient satisfaction rate given its fast recovery, superb acuity, and excellent night vision potential with more than 23 million patients choosing this solution world-wide over the last 23 years to achieve freedom from contacts and glasses for good.   Additional benefits of ICL include built in UV protection, excellent night vision, and in 94% of cases patients gain one or more lines in terms of their best corrected vision.  Lastly, ICL is 100% reversible since the cornea tissue will not be changed in any way. 

At Laser Eye Center™, we use the latest technology to retrieve the exact dimensions for the lens implant. This allows our doctors to complete the process with outstanding accuracy, therefore achieving remarkable results. Patients love the visual acuity and convenience ICL offers, instantly noticing an improvement in their vision.  No longer worried about their need for glasses or regular contacts, they are now able to freely participate in the most mundane to adventurous of activities such as reading, swimming, or scuba diving, hassle-free.

Hard Contact Lens Fitting

Hard Contact Lens Fitting

Just like eyeglasses, the primary purpose of contact lenses is to correct common vision problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. For some, contacts are a preferable alternative to glasses, allowing more freedom than glasses can provide.

The process of fitting ‘hard’, or rigid gas-permeable, contact lenses is a two-part process. First, we will arrange for a comprehensive consultation to qualify you for fitted contacts as the best way for you to proceed based on your particular needs. Next, we will schedule you the contact lens actual fitting when our doctor will measure your eye’s surface, thoroughly examining your ocular surface quality, tear film, corneal curvature, eye structure, and other refractive data necessary to fit the lenses correctly. Based on the results, our doctor will prescribe the appropriate lens prescriptions and schedule any necessary follow-up visits.

With hard contact lenses, there is a longer adjustment period than with soft contact lenses. You should allow for a 2 to 4 week period for your eyes to adjust; And, once your eyes become accustomed to the new lens, you can expect to experience complete comfort even wearing these lenses overnight and as long as a week without the need to changd them.

In contrast to conventional Los Angeles-based vision care providers, our surgeons have been exclusively performing All Laser or bladeless LASIK since 2001! This procedure creates the corneal flap typical of the first step of LASIK using computer-controlled laser pulses that are tailored to the optimal depth and position of your eye to gently separate the outer layer of the cornea from the layer being treated. All Laser LASIK is a tremendous technological leap as compared to conventional or micro-keratome LASIK, which creates the corneal flap using a hand-held blade. The result is exceptional surgical precision, accuracy, and safety.

LASIK FAQ

1. Is LASIK or PRK safe?

Since being approved by the FDA in 1995, laser vision correction surgery is held as the safest medical procedure available today. Complications are very rare with a rate estimated between 0.2 and 2 percent, according to the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO). By choosing our trusted LASIK center that has a strong track record and the latest technology, you know you are in good hands.

Recent studies have shown more than twenty million patients around the world have opted for LASIK surgery to improve their vision and get rid of corrective eyewear for good.  After you have been evaluated for Modern LASIK and you are determined a candidate for the procedure, you will be treated at one of our facilities here in Southern California. Anesthetic drops will be placed onto the eyes, and one of our seasoned LASIK surgeons will create a protective flap using our state-of-the-art laser technology. With pinpoint accuracy, pulses of laser light will then reshape the inner layer of the cornea to improve your vision. This second laser is so precise, it can divide one grain of sand into 1,000 precise pieces! The flap is then replaced. 

This gives you the comfort of relaxing and trusting that we will go to every expense & action to provide you with the highest levels of safety and science for your very best advantage to vision.

2. Is LASIK painful?

Not at all! By choosing the latest groundbreaking technology, you gain on speed, safety, and accuracy — and the LASIK procedure is over in seconds! The best platform in the field is by far Johnson & Johnson’s IFS femtosecond laser in combination with Alcon’s Wavelight EX500. Be sure to ask our eye care center about all-laser solutions.

Modern LASIK treatment is virtually painless, and the laser procedure itself typically takes under a few minutes to complete with most patients experiencing dramatic improvement in vision just one day after the procedure!  

3. How soon can I return to work?

Most patients are able to resume normal activity the day following the procedure! It is really that quick!

4. Am I a candidate for LASIK?

  • Candidates must be over 18.
  • Candidates must have no diseases or health issues of the eyes, including cataracts or glaucoma.
  • Candidates must have had a stable vision prescription for at least a year.

5. What sort of preparation is required for LASIK?

WEEKS BEFORE SURGERY

  • If you wear contact lenses, you will need to stop wearing them and switch to glasses prior to surgery. This is because contact lenses can distort the shape of your cornea and affect surgical results.
  • If you wear soft contacts, stop wearing them two weeks prior to surgery.
  • If you wear rigid gas permeable (GP) contact lenses, stop wearing them three to four weeks prior to surgery.

THE DAY BEFORE LASIK SURGERY

  • Carefully remove all makeup, mascara, eyeliner and lotions from the area around the eyes.
  • Use artificial tears to flush any debris from your eyes.
  • Arrange for a loved one to drive you to and from our office after the procedure.

MORNING OF SURGERY

  • Do not apply makeup, face lotions or perfume or cologne.
  • If you take medications, continue to do so on the day of surgery, unless you are directed otherwise by our Modern LASIK surgeon.
