LASIK

LASIK is a vision correction treatment designed to reduce or eliminate an individual's dependency on eyeglasses or contact lenses. LASIK, which stands for Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis, is a surgical procedure that involves permanently reshaping the eye's cornea with an excimer laser. A special knife known as a microkeratome is used to cut a flap in the cornea. The flap is then folded back to reveal the middle of the cornea. From there, a laser will transmit light pulses of energy to gradually change the shape of the cornea and the flap is replaced. Currently, there are several other LASIK techniques such as Custom LASIK and Intralase® LASIK that offer more customized vision correction procedures for every patient's unique condition.

LASEK

Those patients who are not good candidates for LASIK may undergo a similar procedure called LASEK that is better suited for patients with flat or thin corneas. While both procedures reshape the corneal tissue below the flap, in LASEK, the flap is cut thinner. Only the epithelium-outer layer of the cornea-is used to create a thin hinged flap. Once the middlesection of the cornea is exposed, the laser vision treatment continues as it would with LASIK. The cornea is reshaped with an excimer laser and the flap is replaced.

PRK

PRK was the first laser vision correction procedure available and is still a recommended treatment option for patients with thin corneas or large pupils. PRK, like LASIK, involves creating a hinged flap using only the epithelium. Then an excimer laser is used to reshape the corneal tissue, allowing the eye to focus light clearly on the retina to improve visual acuity. The results of PRK are not as immediate as in LASIK procedures. Gradual vision improvement occurs over the course of several days, weeks, or sometimes months.

Multifocal IOLs

Multifocal intraocular lens and accommodative intraocular lens (IOLs) offer individuals a range of clearer near, distant, and intermediate vision with the use of surgically placed lenses. The procedure involves the use of synthetic lenses that, when combined, have several refractive points allowing more focused vision at any distance without the use of glasses. Multifocal IOL is typically used to correct the vision of those who are farsighted, nearsighted, and who have presbyopia (need reading glasses). Patients with cataracts may also be candidates for Multifocal IOL procedure.
