LASIK eye surgery has given millions of men and women visual freedom from contact lenses and prescription eyeglasses. Our skilled eye surgeons at Laser Eye Center™ are pioneers in LASIK technology and offer Modern LASIK with the all-laser technique. A state-of-the-art laser creates the LASIK flap using the cornea’s surface layer (epithelium), and an excimer laser reshapes the cornea to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Our eye surgeons can achieve the best results with all-laser LASIK, providing optimal vision correction that focuses on your corneas’ unique, irregular curvature. Patients have permanent vision improvement and no longer need corrective eyewear.
Cataracts are a leading cause of blindness but are “curable” with cataract surgery. This eye disease happens when proteins in the eye’s natural lens clump together, forming a cloudy appearance that affects vision. The cataract becomes denser and more opaque, causing muted vision with a yellowish tint and blindness if left untreated long-term. The only way to treat cataracts is to remove the clouded lens with eye surgery. The natural lens is replaced with an artificial lens implant. These intraocular lens implants (IOLs) restore clear vision and improve visual acuity by correcting nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and/or presbyopia. Laser Eye Center™ offers premium cataract surgery with laser technology for precise IOL placement and improved vision at one or more focal points with advanced IOLs.
Healthy tear film relies on three layers: mucous (mucin), water (aqueous), and oil (lipid). Dry eyes happen when there are insufficient tears or poor tear quality. The condition is often caused by meibomian gland dysfunction when the oil glands in your eyelids become clogged, causing dryness, itchiness, and other uncomfortable symptoms. Laser Eye Center™ offers dry eye treatment with artificial tears, prescription eye drops, medications, and procedures, such as BlephEx and iLux.
Pterygium affects people who spend much of their lives outdoors in bright sunlight or dusty or windy environments. These flesh-colored lesions form on the conjunctiva (clear coating on the white section of the eye and under eyelids) and may extend onto the cornea and affect vision. The pterygia’s appearance may cause patients to be accused of drug or alcohol use. Laser Eye Center™ offers pterygium removal with the advanced autograft technique. The procedure removes the pterygium and underlying tissue and replaces it with conjunctival tissue harvested from under the upper eyelid. The autograft method reduces the risk that the pterygium will grow back.
Keratoconus is a progressive eye condition that causes the usually round cornea to bulge outward like a cone. The distorted shape affects how the eye refracts light onto the retina, causing blurry vision. Laser Eye Center™ is at the forefront of keratoconus treatment, which may include corrective glasses, rigid contact lenses, corneal implants, or corneal cross-linking. Corneal cross-linking stops keratoconus from progressing by strengthening the cornea’s collagen fibers with a combination of riboflavin eye drops and UV light.
Myopia, or nearsightedness, is a refractive error caused by an irregular eye shape. People with nearsightedness struggle to see objects far away and must rely on prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses. Our skilled eye surgeons at Laser Eye Center™ offer permanent vision correction for myopia with LASIK eye surgery.
Astigmatism is a refractive error caused by a misshapen eye. The eye is typically round like a ball, and astigmatism happens when the eye is oval or egg-shaped. Astigmatism causes blurry vision for near and far objects, and patients require contacts or eyeglasses to see clearly. LASIK eye surgery can eliminate the burden of corrective eyewear by permanently reshaping the cornea for excellent vision. Our ophthalmologists provide all-laser LASIK for optimal results.
Presbyopia happens with natural aging as the flexible lens inside your eye stiffens and hardens. The rigid lens can no longer adjust focus for nearby objects, causing blurry near vision. Presbyopia is the reason people often require reading glasses in their 40s. Laser Eye Center™ can treat presbyopia and reduce or eliminate your dependence on “readers” with refractive eye surgery (monovision LASIK), refractive lens exchange, or implantable contact lenses.
