Laser Eye Surgery Consultations in San Diego

Improved Vision Without Glasses or Contacts

If you have a refractive error, like nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism, you probably rely on contacts or eyeglasses to see clearly. You may have also considered laser eye surgery so you could do away with your eyewear completely. 

As much as we love our glasses (and we really, really do), we also love options. And laser eye surgery is a safe, common option for vision correction. 

If you’re unsure about the procedure, we get it. It is surgery, after all, and not without its risks. But if you’d like to learn more about the various procedures, then please book a laser eye surgery consultation. We’d love to help you make an informed decision!

Types of Laser Eye Surgery

LASIK

Laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) is a common vision correction procedure that uses a laser to precisely alter the shape of your cornea.

LASIK involves creating a paper-thin flap in your outer corneal tissue, which is then folded back. The corneal tissue below is reshaped using a computerized laser programmed to your prescription and eye measurements. Once your cornea is reshaped, your surgeon puts the flap back in place. The flap reattaches on its own in 2 to 3 minutes and will heal completely in a few days.

LASIK is very effective: 9 out of 10 LASIK patients end up with 20/20 or 20/40 vision without the need for glasses or contacts.

Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) is also a common laser eye procedure used to correct refractive errors by reshaping your cornea. If you have thin corneas or dry eyes, PRK may be a good option for you.

The PRK procedure involves removing and discarding your outer cornea using a brush, blade, laser, or alcohol solution. Using a computerized laser programmed with your prescription and measurements, the exposed cornea is reshaped to correct your vision. Your surgeon will then place a bandage contact lens on your eyes to aid with healing.

Like LASIK, 9 out of 10 PRK patients end up with 20/40 vision or better without needing glasses or contact lenses.
