LASIK/PRK for refractive correction

LASIK stands for Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis, a process that has been used since 1990 and can treat myopia, hyperopia (nearsightedness, farsightedness) and astigmatism.

In the surgery, a corneal flap is cut and then a computer guided laser reshapes the underlying exposed cornea.

LASIK preserves the epithelium and the outermost stoma. The cornea of LASIK patients heals faster than those treated with other techniques. Most patients achieve great vision, even the day following surgery!

Like all surgeries, LASIK poses some risks and complications. Every patient should talk to their doctor about how to weigh the risks with the potential benefits.

Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT) for noninvasive glaucoma management

SLT works by focusing laser energy on pigmented cells in the eye, which improves the flow of the aqueous humor in the anterior chamber, thereby relieving pressure in the eye. SLT is performed right in our office and only takes a few minutes. SLT can reduce or eliminate the need to use glaucoma medications (drops).

Benefits include:
  • Safe and not associated with any systemic side effects and cost like medications
  • SLT uses photothermolysis to target specific cells, not harming surrounding tissues.
  • SLT therapy is usually reimbursed by most insurances and Medicare.

Laser Peripheral Iridotomy for narrow angles or angle closure glaucoma

Laser iridotomy involves making a hole in the peripheral colored part of the eye (iris) to allow fluid to drain normally in eyes with narrow or closed angles.
