LASIK Man Answers Your Questions About LASIK

What is LASIK?
The key to understanding custom LASIK is to understand how the eye works. Sharp, clear vision is the result of light rays passing through the cornea, pupil and lens and focusing directly upon the retina. If the cornea is not round, or it is too steep or too flat in relation to the length of the eye, light rays focus either in front of or behind the retina resulting in "refractive errors" such as nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. The cornea is the clear surface of the eye. Many people who are nearsighted place contact lenses on their eyes to improve the way the cornea focuses light. Custom LASIK is just another way of improving the way the cornea focuses light.

Custom LASIK for NearsightednessNearsightedness
Nearsightedness, or myopia, occurs when the cornea is too rounded. With nearsightedness, the eye's refractive power is too strong, or the eyeball is too long, thus forcing the image to be focused in front of the retina of the eye rather than upon it as would be with normal vision. When light focuses in front of the retina, near objects can be seen clearly, but far objects appear blurry.


Custom LASIK for farsightednessFarsightedness
Farsightedness, or hyperopia, is caused when the cornea is too flat and hence causes light to focus behind the retina. With farsightedness, the eye's refractive power is too weak or the eyeball is too short, thus forcing the image to be focused behind the retina of the eye causing far objects to be seen clearly and near objects to appear blurred.


Astigmatism is caused when the cornea is shaped irregularly - like a football, preventing light from converging on the retina. Instead, some parts of the image focus on the retina, while others focus behind it or in front of it. This has the effect of bending light inconsistently and causes blurred images. Astigmatism can occur in addition to nearsightedness and farsightedness.


How Does Custom LASIK WorkHow does LASIK work?
LASIK, or Laser in-Situ Keratomileusis, uses a cool laser light to reshape the cornea to your prescription, thus correcting the common problems of even high degrees of nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. The goal of custom LASIK is to give you clear, natural vision so you won't need glasses or contacts any more!

Custom LASIK combines the lifting of the corneal cap with the precision and accuracy of laser technology. A thin layer of the corneal cap is lifted by the microkeratome, and gently folded back. Then, the doctor uses the laser to reshape the internal tissue of the eye. The corneal cap is then replaced in its original position where it adheres quickly and seals itself without the use of stitches.


Is LASIK right for me?
There are a number of things that might make you a great candidate for custom LASIK. Your eye health, current prescription, history and eye shape will all help determine whether or not custom LASIK can help correct your vision and help you see without glasses or contacts. Cross your fingers - chances are you are a candidate!

My Earth Partner will discuss your particular financial needs during your free custom LASIK consultation. There are a variety of financing options available to make having custom LASIK easy for everyone!

Can you believe that as many as 98% of LASIK procedures result in 20/40 vision or better? That percentage gets even higher with custom LASIK, which is performed by my Earth Partners. That's good enough to pass a driver's test! Since everyone's eyes are different, no one can determine exactly what your results will be. But with a careful study of your current eye condition, my Earth Partners are usually able to predict success. Keep in mind that if the eye doctor feels your results may be less than optimal, he or she will recommend you opt not to have custom LASIK.


Does LASIK hurt?
Custom LASIK is a relatively painless procedure, and the actual surgery lasts only seconds. Some patients describe a "scratchy" feeling for a short time following the surgery, but minor discomfort is only temporary. Eye drops and a nap usually take care of any discomfort!


Is LASIK safe?
The custom LASIK surgery has become so popular throughout the Universe because it offers so many benefits over other forms of laser vision correction: greater precision, less surface area to heal, less risk of scarring, less risk of corneal haze, less postoperative discomfort, less postoperative need for medications, and vision returns rapidly. The complication rate involved with custom LASIK is one of the lowest in the medical field!
