DEFINITION: LASIK is a procedure that corrects vision by reshaping the tissue beneath the surface of the cornea (the transparent, front part of the eye). Cheyenne Eye Clinic uses the latest in All Laser Bladeless LASIK technology available.
PROCEDURE: After the eye has been completely numbed using “eye drop” anesthesia, an eyelid holder is placed between the lids to prevent blinking. Next, an instrument called a Femtosecond laser is used to create a protective flap in the cornea. After the protective flap is made a second instrument called a VISX laser is used to reshape the corneal tissue underneath. This treatment will correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. After the laser treatment the protective flap is positioned back into place where it bonds without the need for stitches.

EXPECTATIONS: The decision to have Laser Vision Correction is an important one that ultimately, only you can make. It is improtant that you have realistic expectations and that your decision is based on facts, not hopes or misconceptions. The goal of any refractive surgical procedure is to reduce your dependence on glasses or contact lenses. It cannot correct a condition known as presbyopia, or aging of the eye, that normally occurs around age 40 and may require the use of reading glasses.
