LASIK

19 lasikLASIK is a surgical procedure intended to reduce a person’s dependency on glasses or contact lenses. It is a procedure that permanently changes the shape of the cornea, the clear covering of the front of the eye, using an excimer laser.

Nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism may be reduced so that the need for contact lenses or eyeglasses is reduced or eliminated. This short, outpatient treatment allows minimal time off work and minimal post-operative discomfort. Some fluctuation in vision may occur until all the healing is done.

No longer using a mechanical microkeratone (a blade devise), Dr.Kalski now uses only a laser keratome (a laser device) to cut a flap in the cornea. A hinge is left at one end of this flap. The flap is folded back revealing the stroma, the middle section of the cornea. Pulses from, the computer-controlled, cool light of the excimer laser then reshape the cornea to focus light rays back on the retina. The flap is then gently laid back down.

LASIK is an elective treatment. As with any surgery, there are risks, which Dr. Kalski will discuss with you in great detail. But generally the below hold true:

  • There is no guarantee that it will completely eliminate the reliance on corrective lenses.
  • As with any type of surgery, there is a small chance of infection, which is greatest during the first 3 days to one week after surgery.
  • Night glare or blurriness may occur.
