LASIK, short for laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis, is a type of refractive surgery for correcting myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), or astigmatism. The operation involves creating a thin flap on the eye and folding it to allow the surgeon to remodel the tissue beneath the flap with a laser, after which the flap is repositioned and the eye is left to heal. LASIK is the most popular refractive surgery today because it is quick and relatively painless. Most patients have 20/20 vision the day after surgery, too.
Dr. Rhodes, Dr. Zemanovich and Dr. Whelan provide pre-operative evaluations to determine if you are a candidate for LASIK. Optique does not participate in the ownership of any laser center, and the doctors will impartially recommend only the best doctors and equipment for your particular situation. Additionally, we will support you in your surgical experience and provide a comprehensive after-care program where we will work closely with the surgeon to ensure your surgery is successful.
