Enjoy Customized Vision Results with Wavefront-Optimized “All Laser” LASIK!

“All Laser” LASIK is one of the world’s most popular laser vision correction procedures for the treatment of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. The goal of “All Laser” LASIK is to help patients see equal to or better than their contact lenses and glasses and, through the use of Wavefront-Optimized techniques, to help preserve or even improve their vision quality, especially their night vision.

How Does “All Laser” LASIK Work?

Unlike older systems that use a surgical blade, “All Laser” LASIK employs lasers at all points in the LASIK procedure, giving Dr. Hyver far greater control over the treatment process and eliminating the unique risks of the older technology:

The “All Laser” LASIK procedure is also customized to your prescription and to your unique corneal curvature. Using proprietary Wavefront-Optimized software algorithms, the Alcon EX500 excimer laser adjusts its energy delivery on the periphery of the treatment zone in order to help achieve a natural prolate corneal shape, which can help minimize spherical aberration and therefore contribute to better night vision.

What can I expect during the recovery period?

During the first four hours after your LASIK procedure, your vision will be hazy (similar to looking through a film), and you’re likely to experience varying degrees of eye stinging, scratchiness, tearing, and light sensitivity.

One day after surgery, aside from a little dryness, your eyes should feel relatively normal, and your vision should be clear enough to resume most of your normal lifestyle.  However, results vary from patient-to-patient, based on the patient’s preoperative prescription and the type of work he or she performs.

Over the next few weeks, your vision should gradually sharpen to reach its best correction.

How well will I see and what are the risks?

With today’s state-of-the-art laser infrastructure, combined with Dr. Hyver’s experience and deep surgical database, it’s rare that our “All Laser” LASIK patients don’t see 20/20 or better.  Like any medical procedure, however, LASIK is not without risks or alternatives.
