If you’ve been waiting for the right time to have LASIK, your wait is over! Learn more about the advanced laser technologies available to you.
Our LASIK technology includes iLASIK. iLASIK is an advanced “bladeless” laser-assisted vision correction procedure which has revolutionized the field.
iLASIK combines the two most advanced LASIK technologies in the world. iLASIK is the first vision correction procedure to be 100% customized to the unique characteristics of each eye. iLASIK is the only laser eye surgery approved by NASA and trusted by all branches of the US military.
PRK (photorefractive keratectomy) is a type of refractive surgery to correct myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism.
PRK was the first type of laser eye surgery for vision correction and is the predecessor to the popular LASIK procedure. Though PRK recovery takes a bit longer than recovery from LASIK eye surgery, PRK is still commonly performed and offers advantages over LASIK for some patients.
PRK uses a slightly different way to correct vision and is a good alternative for those who may not be good LASIK candidates.
