Information for Prospective Boca Raton LASIK Patients

LASIK eye surgery is an advanced elective procedure that is often sought by patients whose lifestyle and occupation require superb vision or by any patient who wishes to reduce his or her dependence on glasses and contact lenses. LASIK Boca Raton surgeons are board-certified ophthalmologists who utilize the most advanced laser equipment and surgical techniques for the best possible vision correction treatment. Many LASIK Boca Raton providers also offer variations of the procedure for patients who may not be good candidates for the LASIK method. Such alternative treatments often include PRK surgery, Epi-LASIK and RLE (refractive lens exchange). Please contact an experienced Boca Raton eye surgeon or LASIK surgeon Palm Beach to learn more about your vision correction options, ask whether you are a candidate and inquire about the cost of laser eye surgery.

LASIK Eye Surgery in Boca Raton: The Procedure

LASIK eye surgery involves several steps. The most skilled Boca Raton and South Florida laser eye surgery providers provide custom treatment plans by using leading-edge diagnostic and mapping technology. Known as wavefront-guided LASIK, this mapping technology allows Boca Raton LASIK surgeons to obtain a detailed map of each patent's unique refractive errors to be corrected during LASIK. Next, your Boca Raton eye surgeon will use a microkeratome (surgical tool) or femtosecond laser to create a corneal flap. The corneal flap is a thin piece of tissue that is lifted from the eye to expose the underlying cornea. Once this is accomplished, a state-of-the-art excimer laser, which is calibrated with the patient's unique eye characteristics, is used to correct vision. Lastly, the corneal flap is returned to its original position to protect the eye during the healing process. Most patients who undergo LASIK achieve improved vision within 24 hours following the procedure.

Additional Vision Correction Treatments Offered by Boca Raton LASIK Surgeons

Boca Raton eye surgeons offer a range of advanced vision correction procedures for cataract treatment and presbyopia correction. A cataract is a progressive clouding of the eye's natural lens. During cataract surgery, the damaged natural lens is removed and replaced with an artificial implant known as an intraocular lens implant (IOL). Presbyopia is an age-related loss of reading vision affecting millions of individuals over the age of 40. Presbyopia can be treated through several methods, including CK and/or the implantation of a presbyopia-correcting lens implant such as the accommodating Crystalens IOL. Besides vision correction procedures, some Boca Raton eye surgeons also offer blepharoplasty (eyelid lift surgery). Eyelid surgery can improve vision in patients who are unable to see well due to extreme sagging of the upper eyelids. It can also be used for cosmetic purposes to enhance one's facial appearance and reduce visible signs of aging. If you want to know more about blepharoplasty, please ask your Boca Raton eye surgeon to show you eyelid surgery before and after pictures.
