Prior to starting the LASIK procedure, LVI uses the wavefront computer-guided system to diagnose the patient’s refractive errors. By utilizing this sophisticated machine, they are able to distinguish even the most subtle of refractive errors, including higher order aberrations, the most difficult refractive errors to diagnose. The laser eye surgeon will then use this diagnostic information to calibrate the excimer laser that he will use to re-contour individuals’ corneas during surgery.
To start LASIK surgery, the surgeon uses a surgical instrument with a thin blade, called a microkeratome, to incise a small flap in the cornea. He then gently pulls back the flap, revealing corneal tissue underneath. Next, he utilizes the excimer laser to reshape this tissue, treating the refractive error that is causing farsightedness, nearsightedness and/or astigmatism in the process. Once the surgeon is content with the newly modified cornea, he replaces the corneal flap in its original position. There, the corneal flap will naturally re-bond to the eye without any need for stitches.
LVI’s Philadelphia LASIK patients typically do not feel any pain during surgery. In addition, they are happy to hear that LVI’s surgeons utilize custom wavefront LASIK technology which delivers 20/20 or better vision to approximately 98 percent of LASIK patients within the first year after LASIK surgery. Often, treated individuals no longer have to wear glasses or contact lenses to see clearly.
