Laser Eye Surgery in Ventura County, CA

Laser eye surgery is one of the greatest advances of the modern medical science. During this procedure, the surgeon uses a precisely calibrated laser to correct the patient's nearsightedness, farsightedness or myopia. As a result, Ventura County LASIK patients are able to enjoy clear vision at various distances, often without any eyeglasses or contact lenses.

While LASIK has become one of the more commonly performed vision correction procedures in the world, a certain level of mystery still surrounds this treatment. Exactly what happens during LASIK eye surgery? The surgery can be divided into three stages. First, your Ventura / Oxnard LASIK surgeon will create a tiny flap in the cornea (the clear part of the eye) and fold it out of the way. Second, your surgeon will administer a precisely determined amount of laser energy to the exposed corneal tissue. Finally, the corneal flap will be positioned back into its original place. At this point, the surgery is complete.

LASIK variations — LASEK, Epi-LASIK and PRK — use different eye preparation techniques. Thus, during LASEK, a minute flap is created in the eye's surface, and it is removed using an alcohol solution. During Epi-LASIK, a plastic blade is used to fold away the epithelial flap. Finally, PRK surgery does not involve the creation of a flap. Instead, the laser energy is applied directly onto the eye's surface.
