Lasik Laser Vision Correction
Bladeless Laser Vision Correction is one of the most exciting technological advances in the history of eye care.
LASIK stands for Laser Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis. A wide range of myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism can be corrected by the LASIK procedure. It is a delicate surgical procedure that allows for a very predictable healing response. Your vision stabilizes rapidly, and you can expect to have little or no discomfort following LASIK. Most patients have driving vision within 24 hours of treatment.
The Laser Vision Correction of Choice
The difference between traditional LASIK and bladeless Z-LASIK is the method by which the flap is created. In bladeless Z-LASIK, a femtosecond laser is used to cut a thin flap in the cornea to access the deeper layers of the cornea for re-shaping whereas in traditional LASIK a microkeratome (mechanical device with blade) cuts the flap.
LCC is proud to be the ONLY laser vision centre offering this new, bladeless Z-LASIK procedure to Lindsay and surrounding area residents.
How long does the Z-LASIK procedure take?
The entire procedure on the treatment day usually takes between 60 and 90 minutes which includes the time in preparing you for the procedure as well as final examinations after the procedure. Actual time in the laser suite is usually about 10 to 15 minutes.
