Lasik NYC is the golden standard in laser vision correction for New Yorkers. Thousands of men and women living in Manhattan, Long Island and Brooklyn underwent LASIK laser eye surgery to improve blurred vision associated with farsightedness, near sightedness or astigmatism. This FDA approved treatment is painless and takes only a few minutes to perform. Best of all, Lasik works almost immediately. Many patients see the effects of their corrected vision within 24 hours of their procedure.
If you think Lasik is right for you, it is important to schedule a consultation with a reputable Lasik NYC provider. This technique sensitive procedure is incredibly safe and effective, with a low risk of Lasik complications when performed by a skilled and experienced eye surgeon. That is why discerning patients living in Manhattan, Brooklyn, or Long Island choose Dello Russo LaserVision as their preferred Lasik NYC provider.
Lasik stands for Laser-Assisted in situ Keratomileusis. Any procedure involving the eyes and lasers may sound intimidating. However, when performed by an experience Lasik NYC provider, this type of laser vision correction is a simple and extremely safe procedure. Laser eye surgery works by reshaping the cornea, the clear, dome shaped surface at the front of the eye that plays an important role in focusing the light that passes through it onto the retina.
Before your procedure, your LASIK NYC eye surgeon from Dello Russo LaserVision will give you a mild sedative to relax your eyes. In addition, you will receive numbing eye drops to further ensure a painless procedure.
Your eye surgeon will use a lid speculum to keep the eyelid open during surgery and mild suction to keep the eye from moving. While this may sound uncomfortable, the sedative and numbing drops alleviate any discomfort.
Your NYC Lasik surgeon will then use a microkeratome or a femtosecond laser to create a thin flap in the cornea. This flap allows your surgeon to access the stroma, the underlying part of the cornea that your surgeon will reshape using a cold laser or excimer laser. Once the cornea is properly reshaped, your eye surgeon completes the surgery by putting the cornea flap back in place. He will then cover your cornea with a bandage contact lens. No sutures or stitches are necessary.
Lasik is one type of laser eye surgery. Another popular, though more outdated type of laser vision correction is known as PRK.
PRK, which stands for Photo Refractive Keratectomy, was the first surgery developed for laser vision correction. Thus, PRK is the forefather of Lasik. Both Lasik and PRK reshape the cornea to correct vision and yield similar results, however, Lasik utilizes more advanced techniques and technologies to reduce discomfort and recovery time.
The main difference between PRK and Lasik is how your surgeon accesses your cornea. During Lasik, your NYC eye surgeon creates a flap in the cornea to access underlying tissue. During PRK, your surgeon uses a laser to clean off the top layer of cells to access the underlying tissue of the cornea. After the PRK treatment, the top layers of cells naturally replace themselves over the course of several days. This requires a longer recovery time and may be more uncomfortable than the more advanced Lasik procedure.
While Lasik is a more advanced option for laser vision correction, PRK can still be a safe and effective solution for individuals who are not good candidates for Lasik. PRK may be a better option for individuals who have corneas that are too thin to perform a flap, irregular astigmatisms, or prior surgery done on the eye.
Following a thorough assessment, your Lasik NYC provider from Dello Russo LaserVision will discuss which type of laser vision correction is best for you.
