LASIK stands for Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis. Using advanced technology paired with the skill and expertise of the Brooklyn eye surgeons at Dello Russo LaserVision, LASIK safely and effective reshapes the cornea (the domed surface at the front of the eye that focuses light that passes on into the retina) to correct refractory problems that lead to blurred vision.
Your LASIK Brooklyn eye surgeon from Dello Russo LaserVision first provides a mild sedative and numbing eye drops to ensure the procedure is painless. The eye surgeon then uses a lid speculum to help you keep your eye stationary during the procedure. The sedative and numbing drops are sufficient for making sure that this process is not uncomfortable.
The Brooklyn LASIK surgeon then employs a femtosecond laser to create a thin flap into the cornea. Via this flap, the surgeon gains access to the stroma, the underside of the cornea, and the part of the eye that the surgeon reshapes with a cold laser or excimer laser. When the reshaping of the cornea is finished, the eye surgeon places the corneal flap back in place and covers the cornea with a bandage contact lens, which allows the cornea to heal naturally over time.
There is another well-known method of laser eye surgery known as PRK. PRK stands for Photo Refractive Keratectomy, and was the pioneer of the LASIK procedure. Both LASIK and PRK reshape the cornea and produce similar corrective results. LASIK is more advanced, utilizing both advanced techniques and technologies that speed up recovery and reduce discomfort. The method used to access the cornea is what separates LASIK from PRK. As mentioned, LASIK involves accessing the underside of the cornea by cutting a flap into the cornea. PRK involves using a laser to clear the top cell-layer to gain access to the underlying corneal tissue. This method is more invasive than LASIK and typically requires a longer recovery period.
LASIK is the advanced option for laser vision correction, but PRK remains a safe and effective solution for those who are not good candidates for LASIK. For instance, individuals who have thinner corneas, irregular astigmatisms, or prior surgery may be more suitable candidates for PRK.
Your LASIK Brooklyn provider at Dello Russo LaserVision will assess your eye’s condition and evaluate which eye surgery is best suited for you.
LASIK is not for everyone. Our complimentary eye assessments include a comprehensive dilated-eye exam to ensure laser eye correction is right for you. The ideal LASIK candidate will have:
- Mild to moderate nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism
- Corneas thick enough to perform a flap
- Symmetrically shaped corneas
- Pupils 8mm or below in diameter
- No history of eye disease
- No history of chronic dry eye
