Before starting LASIK, LVI uses wavefront technology to identify the patient's refractive errors. With this innovative technology, they are able to pinpoint minute vision errors, also called "higher order aberrations." The doctor utilizes this diagnostic information to adjust the excimer laser as needed. Later, he will use the excimer laser to re-sculpt the patient's corneas during the LASIK procedure.
To start LASIK surgery, the surgeon makes a small flap in the cornea with a surgical blade called a microkeratome. He next uses the excimer laser to reshape the corneal tissue that lies beneath the lifted corneal flap. In doing so, the laser eye surgeon is able to treat the refractive error that causes nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism. Once he is satisfied with the newly shaped cornea, the surgeon repositions the corneal flap in its original position. The flap ultimately re-bonds to the eye without any need for stitches.
Patients should not feel any pain while undergoing LASIK in Birmingham. Also, 98 percent of the patients who receive LASIK with Advanced CustomVue technology achieve 20/20 vision or better one year after the procedure.
