This laser vision correction procedure corrects blurry vision, thus minimizing one’s need for glasses and contacts. This procedure is safe, non-invasive, and has a quick recovery time.
PRK (photorefractive keratectomy) surgery—also called ASA (Advanced Surface Ablation)—is a LASIK alternative designed for patients who don’t qualify for LASIK. Some of the reasons that a patient might be advised to have PRK instead of LASIK are these:
- Have a cornea that’s thinner than what’s advised for LASIK
- Have dry eyes or are prone to dryness
- Participate in high-contact sports and are more likely to suffer an eye injury
This procedure involves reshaping the cornea to change the path that light takes through the eye. Although PRK has a longer and less comfortable healing time, it is minimally invasive, and low risk.
SMILE (Small Incision Lenticule Extraction) laser surgery involves using femtosecond laser technology to create a precise, thin circular disc of tissue that’s removed through a small incision in the cornea. Healing from SMILE eye surgery is quick. Patients are able to drive the next day and wear eye makeup.
Cataracts are a form of vision impairment that involves a clouding or discoloring of the eye lens that causes blurry vision. Cataract surgery is an outpatient procedure in which surgeons use advanced equipment and techniques to remove the cataract and implant an artificial lens, which is called an intraocular lens.
Premium lens options—like AcrySof IQ Re IOL, Crystalens Accommodating IOL, AcrySof Toric IOL, Tecnis® Multi-Focal IOL, and Tecnis Symfony® IOL—offer more optimal results than traditional cataract surgery lenses. These higher-quality intraocular lenses replace the natural lens that has become clouded. Premium lens options eliminate your need for glasses and contacts.

EVO Visian ICL is a refractive implant that corrects common vision problems like myopia (nearsightedness) and astigmatism. Unlike other corrective procedures, EVO Visian ICL doesn’t require the removal of corneal tissue and it is reversible. The procedure takes about 15 mins per eye. Most surgeons will do both eyes within the same day. The Visian EVO ICL is often offered as an alternative for patients who cannot have LASIK. It can also, however, be offered to patients who are candidates for LASIK.
Custom Lens Replacement Surgery is designed to reduce or eliminate the need for glasses and contact lenses for patients who are nearsighted or farsighted. Some lens implants are designed to also correct astigmatism and presbyopia. Presbyopia is the natural aging of the eye that renders patients unable to see small print.
Corneal cross-linking treats keratoconus, which is characterized by a weak, thin, and bulging cornea. Keratoconus blurs your vision and increases your risk of developing irregular astigmatism. Corneal cross-linking involves adding cross-linked corneal cells, or cross-beams, to the cornea to increase its stability.
