Laser Vision Correction

Blade-Free LASIK

Laser Vision Correction Manteca CA | LASIK Stockton CA

LASIK, an acronym for Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis, is the most common refractive procedure. Using targeted laser beam energy, Lasik reshapes the cornea so that light rays are focused more precisely on the retina. As a result, patients can now have clear, sharp vision without the need for glasses or contacts. Lasik can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Our doctors perform laser vision correction to give patients a better quality of life.

CustomVue™ LASIK

Just like a fingerprint, each person’s vision is 100 percent unique to their eyes. Before the recent advancements in technology, doctors were only able to use standard measurements to correct vision. This meant that prescriptions could only provide a certain level of correction regardless of an individual’s needs. CustomVue™ Individualized Laser Vision Correction, developed by VISX, established a new standard in laser vision correction. In addition, CustomVue™ provides a precise level of measurement and correction never before possible.

Photo-Refractive Keratectomy (PRK)

PRK Stockton CA | Photo-Refractive Keratectomy Manteca CAa

Photorefractive keratectomy, or PRK, is a type of laser eye surgery that reshapes the cornea. Photorefractive keratectomy was the first procedure to use the Excimer laser and, after Lasik, is the second most common type of refractive surgery. Lasik makes a flap and applies the laser to the inner tissue of the cornea. However, with PRK, the epithelium, or outer skin of the cornea, is removed and a laser is applied to the surface of the cornea.

Until recently, laser vision correction treated patients based strictly on their optical prescription. In other words, if you were a minus-four nearsighted person, glasses with minus-four lenses would allow you to see the best that you could. If you had laser vision correction, that same prescription would be programmed into the excimer laser and the exact amount of tissue would be removed to make a minus-four into a zero. Therefore, anyone with the same prescription was receiving the same treatment which we call conventional laser vision correction.
