Main Body

femtoLASIK, or Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis, is a common refractive procedure used to treat astigmatism, farsightedness, and nearsightedness.

The Laser Vision Correction of Choice

Using a precise excimer laser, the cornea is reshaped throughout the treatment to improve eyesight by allowing light to focus appropriately onto the retina. Patients usually recover quickly and with little discomfort, going back to their regular activities in a day or two. For many people who want to be rid of glasses or contact lenses, LASIK provides a cost effective solution.

How long does the 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.

Do I still need to see my eye doctor if I can see perfectly after LASIK surgery?

Yes, you should always see your doctor of optometry regularly after having LASIK, as it is possible to develop eye diseases, like glaucoma, without having any symptoms.
