What is LASIK Eye Surgery?

LASIK eye surgery is also a common form of laser vision correction or laser refractive surgery. It is a minimally invasive procedure that is completed in one session with a pre-evaluation and post-op follow-up. For many, LASIK eye surgery is an ideal corrective eyesight option because it frees you up from the hassle of glasses prescriptions and contact lens refills. During the surgery, your surgeon uses a high-tech laser, controlled by a computer, to shape the cornea (the clear tissue on the front of the eye) to its ideal form and vision capacity. Post-eye surgery, you can expect clear vision with no need for prescription glasses or contacts, potentially saving you a lot of money and headaches.

Our LASIK Approach

At The Holtebeck Eye Center, we use the most advanced LASIK equipment and provide you with attentive patient care from start to finish. We use state-of-the-art screening devices and the newest LASIK laser in the Midwest, making your path to clear eyesight that much smoother. Additionally, at The Holtebeck Eye Center, unlike at most other eyecare centers, your surgeon will work with you through your evaluation, surgery, and follow-ups to ensure your comfort and a consistent point of contact throughout the entire vision correction process. 

As part of your evaluation, we will take into account your vision history and daily eye habits in order to advise you on whether this surgery is best suited for your vision needs. We want to help you make an informed and appropriate decision for your vision health. 

The surgery itself usually takes approximately 15 minutes and involves medicine for relaxation and numbing drops for preparing your eyes for the procedure. While some patients report feeling some minor pressure, the surgery is not considered painful. 

After your surgery, you will schedule a post-op exam during which your surgeon will check your eyes’ healing process and address any questions. At that time, we will make recommendations for ongoing care and future appointments. 

It is important to us that you feel safe and well cared for as a patient. We are able to provide same-week consultations to start your LASIK eye surgery process, as well as same-day emergency eye services when needed.

For many patients, breaking free from wearing glasses or contact lenses can be a life-changing experience, especially for those who have been suffering from lifelong vision concerns that have impacted their quality of life.

One option that they might be considering is LASIK eye surgery, which has been proven to correct vision and improve overall vision quality.

When done with the necessary precautions, LASIK is safe and brings long-lasting benefits to patients. Many might be concerned, however, whether they are ideal candidates for this surgery and how they can be 100% sure.

This is why we use Pentacam technology: a trusted method that will help you determine whether you are suited for LASIK eye surgery and assist you in making the choice to get this modern eye care treatment.

A Pentacam is a comprehensive eye scanner that offers a brief, painless process to deliver a 3D picture on the inside of the eye. One of the most important features of this technology is how it determines the thickness of the cornea, in order to avoid complications. One of the reasons why determining the thickness of the cornea is so important, is that thin corneas are not ideal subjects for LASIK surgery. Also, other conditions, such as extreme near-sightedness or corneas with an altered shape are red flags that indicate considering alternative eye correction treatments, which we would be happy to discuss with patients on a case by case assessment.

One of the reasons why assessing the cornea’s condition is so important, is that this most external lens of the eye regulates the entry of light into the eye and controls eye focus too. When the cornea is damaged or not shaped properly, it can lead to impaired vision.

This is why a Pentacam session is so important: it can pinpoint any cornea issues in an instant and identify any eye issues or concerns.

A Pentacam eye scan offers an extremely precise exploration that is done in less than five seconds per eye. By producing images that resemble topography maps, this scan will assist your doctor to determine the thickness, structure and strength of each eye’s cornea, which will guide the next step of deciding whether a patient is a good candidate for LASIK, or whether alternative treatments need to be considered.

In its most basic definition, LASIK eye surgery reshapes the eye’s cornea with absolute precision with the help of a high-tech laser. This procedure will allow patients to experience clear vision and eradicate the need for wearing glasses or contact lenses.

Downtime following LASIK eye surgery is usually minimal, and if you have any concerns regarding recovery, we would be happy to advise you on what to expect.
