What Procedures Does LASIKPlus Offer?

LASIKPlus offers both LASIK and PRK surgeries.

Both surgeries are laser eye procedures that improve your vision. Talk to your doctor about which option is the best and safest for you. 

LASIK Surgery

LASIK is the most common form of laser eye surgery.3 It treats various refractive errors, such as nearsightedness (also known as myopia), farsightedness (also known as hyperopia), and astigmatism.4

During LASIK eye surgery, the surgeon cuts flaps in the cornea with a femtosecond laser.4 They will leave a hinge at one end of the flap.

Then, they will fold it back to expose your stroma, which is the middle section of your cornea. From there, the surgeon will reshape your cornea and replace the flap.

At LASIKPlus, the surgeons perform 100% bladeless surgeries, which are also known as LASIK™, IntraLASIK™, or all-laser LASIK.4

PRK Surgery

PRK is similar to LASIK. The main difference between the two is how the cornea is cut with the laser.

During PRK surgery, the surgeon will remove a thin layer of the tissue known as the epithelium on the surface of the eye.4 This exposes the cornea so the surgeon can reshape it with the laser.

There is no corneal flap created during PRK. This procedure may be more suitable for people with thin corneas.

Here are answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about LASIK:

What Does LASIK Surgery Feel Like?

LASIK surgery is generally not painful because it is minimally invasive. However, you may feel some itching, burning, and irritation after surgery.2

If you experience severe pain after your LASIK surgery, you should contact your doctor immediately. While some discomfort is to be expected, you should not be in agony after laser vision correction treatment.

Post-operative costs, including prescription eye drops, and post-operative visits required by your surgeon are also included.

Schedule a visit at an office near you for a free consultation on the procedure from world-class surgeons.
