More About Vision Correction at Ebsaar Eye Surgery Center
At Ebsaar Eye Surgery Center, the ophthalmologists utilize sophisticated laser technology for customized vision correction. The state-of-the-art facility is furnished with the OptiLASIK™, Zeimer femtosecond and Allegretto Eye Q lasers to provide patients with personally tailored vision correction treatment and accurate results.
Prior to starting the LASIK procedure, the ophthalmologists employ wavefront technology to create a 3D image of each eye's abnormalities, including subtle visual abnormalities called "higher order aberrations." The laser eye surgeons next use this information to calibrate the excimer laser that they will use during LASIK surgery to re-contour the patient's abnormal cornea.
The ophthalmologists at Ebsaar Eye Surgery Center begin LASIK surgery by making a small flap in the cornea. They then gently lift the corneal flap to expose the underlying corneal tissue. Utilizing the adjusted excimer laser, the eye surgeons re-shape the cornea, fixing the refractive error causing farsightedness, nearsightedness and/or astigmatism. Once they are happy with the newly shaped cornea, the eye surgeons carefully reposition the flap back in its original place, where it naturally re-seals itself to the eye without the need for sutures.
Ebsaar Eye Surgery Center patients generally find LASIK surgery to be painless. They typically have improved vision within one to two days after LASIK surgery. Many patients can forgo wearing contact lenses or glasses to see clearly, and most obtain 20/20 vision following the LASIK procedure.
