LASIK, or Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis, is a state-of-the-art surgical procedure that corrects refractive errors such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism.
Preparation: A thin flap in the cornea is created using a laser.
Reshaping: An excimer laser is then used to precisely reshape the corneal tissue beneath the flap, correcting the refractive error.
Recovery: The flap is repositioned, and the eye begins to heal naturally. Dr. Kagan and the team at Kagan Institute utilize cutting-edge technology to ensure the procedure is as accurate and comfortable as possible.
LASIK is widely celebrated for the following benefits:
Quick Recovery: Most patients notice improved vision within a day or two.
Pain-Free: The procedure is virtually painless with the use of numbing drops.
Reduced Dependence on Glasses or Contacts: Many patients no longer need corrective lenses after LASIK.
Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK) is another laser eye surgery similar to LASIK. Here's a comparison:
Recovery Time: PRK generally has a longer recovery time than LASIK (about 3-5 days longer).
Flap Creation: Unlike LASIK, PRK doesn't involve creating a corneal flap.
Candidates: PRK may be suitable for those who are not candidates for LASIK due to thin corneas or other reasons. Both options are offered at Kagan Institute, where we work with you to choose the best option.
