LASIK is the most advanced method of changing the shape of the cornea to improve the way light is seen by the eye. The new LASIK procedure features increased comfort and faster recovery time to better vision compared with an alternate procedure known as PRK. Most people experience very little or no discomfort and return to normal activities within a day or two.

First a thin layer of cornea called a “cap” is lifted by a laser cut across the cornea. Then high energy pulses from the laser reshape the cornea with a high level of accuracy. By adjusting the pattern of the laser beam it is possible to treat high levels of near sightedness and moderate levels of farsightedness and astigmatism. The entire procedure takes less than 30 minutes.

The first step is to determine whether you are a candidate for the LASIK procedure. To do this you need to make an appointment for your Free LASIK consultation. Please call our office at 303-683-4466 to make your appointment and find out more about the benefits of refractive surgery.
