Prior to starting the LASIK procedure, Dr. January maps out each patient's refractive error by using the wavefront system. This extremely sophisticated diagnostic technology allows him to distinguish tiny refractive errors called higher order aberrations. The surgeon takes this information into account when he calibrates the excimer laser that he will use to re-contour the patient's corneas during the LASIK procedure.

To start LASIK surgery, Dr. January makes a small flap in the cornea with a microkeratome (i.e., a surgical blade). He next lifts the corneal flap and uses the adjusted excimer laser to re-sculpt the tissue underneath. In this fashion, he treats the refractive error that is the source of the patient's farsightedness, nearsightedness or astigmatism. As soon as Dr. January is satisfied with the newly sculpted cornea, he replaces the flap, which will eventually re-seal itself to the eye without the need for sutures.

The San Antonio LASIK patients that Dr. January treats typically remark that they did not feel any pain during the quick procedure. Also, 98 percent of The LASIK Vision Institute™ clients that undergo LASIK with VISX technology acquire at least 20/20 vision within one year after surgery. Many patients are also happy to discover that they do not need contact lenses or prescription glasses following LASIK.
