Free Your Vision By iLasik

Have you heard about LASIK technology? LASIK stands for "laser assisted in situ keratomileusis", is a surgical procedure that is capable of correcting a wide range of nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia) and astigmatism and reduce patients’ dependency on contact lenses and glasses. LASIK technology has advance and the latest innovation in this technology is modern LASIK called iLASIK procedure. The difference is the iLASIk procedure uses two lasers instead of one as in earlier versions of the procedure. A laser is used to make a thin flap in your cornea and a second laser is used to make the correction to your cornea, based on your unique vision/eye characteristics.

The iLASIK procedure are not only fast because it’s generally takes less than 10 minutes per eye, but also save and effective. In fact, the Department of Defense (DOD) and NASA have used this technology to their personnel. The results of modern LASIK in 100 military personnel showed that 95% achieved 20/20 uncorrected vision or better. There are over 12 million Americans have benefited from LASIK and now it’s your time to free your vision!

There is little if any discomfort during surgery because the cornea and eye are anesthetized by drops. Some patients experience a ""scratchy feeling."" After the anesthetic wears off, the amount of discomfort varies with each individual, but any irritation is minor and usually disappears within a few hours. You may be sensitive to light for a few days.
When will I be able to return to work?
Most people can return to work one to three days following surgery, but a rule of thumb is to wait until you feel up to it. Most return to normal activities as soon as the day after surgery.
What are the side effects and risks?
The most common side effects are a halo effect and some glare at night around lights.
(See ""What Are the Risks of Laser Surgery?"")
How long does the treatment take?
Laser treatment itself takes only about 15 to 40 seconds, based on the degree of correction necessary. Recovery is minimal, and usually the patient is able to be driven home after about 30 minutes. Typically, you will notice improved sight in 3 to 5 days following treatment.
Is the treatment permanent?
According to the results of the U.S. clinical trials and results reported internationally, the treatment appears to be permanent. As people age, however, their eyes change and re-treatment may be necessary.
Are there any activity restrictions following surgery?
Following surgery, do not rub your eyes. Other than that, patients can do whatever they feel up to as long as they follow their doctors' instructions.
What if I move my head during surgery?
This is the number one question that patients ask when undergoing laser treatment. The surgeon is skilled in the technique of removing his foot from the pedal that controls the ultraviolet beam as soon as a patient moves his or her head. This allows him to realign the beam with the corneal "target" and proceed with the surgery
