Am I Eligible for
Laser Eye Surgery?
There are a few different types of laser eye surgery available. However, despite the variety of operations, not everyone will be a suitable candidate.
At Optical Illusions, we can ensure a thorough and comprehensive process when it comes to your consultation. Afterward, you will feel prepared for the procedure that could revolutionize how you see the world.
We provide consultations for the following surgeries:
Advanced All-Laser LASIK
All-laser LASIK surgery is a type of surgery that utilizes lasers (specifically, an excimer laser) to reshape your cornea and correct refractive errors with your eyes. A surgeon cuts a “flap” from the cornea of your eye, folding it back to allow the excimer laser to reshape the cornea. Once the cornea is reshaped, the flap is placed back in its original spot and left to heal.
This type of laser eye surgery typically applies to situations in which there is a need for more custom or advanced techniques.
Advanced All-Laser PRK
This surgical method is similar to advanced all-laser LASIK in that it is simply a type of PRK surgery with the ability to be customized. Instead of cutting a flap from your cornea, a layer of the cornea is completely removed and the excimer laser then reshapes the cornea.
PRK surgery is more suitable for people with thinner than average corneas compared to LASIK surgery, as LASIK requires a “flap” being cut into your eye. The results and safety of both operations are the same.
Refractive Lens Exchange
Refractive lens exchange (RLE) surgery is a procedure that replaces the natural lens of the eye with an artificial intraocular lens for vision correction. This procedure is generally pursued to correct refractive errors, but it is also used to correct symptoms of cataracts.
Implantable Collamer Lenses
Implantable collamer lenses (ICL) are involved in a minimally intrusive surgery that adds a lens made of collagen into the eye to correct certain types of vision—especially mild to severe cases of myopia.
One of the major benefits of the ICL procedure compared to other surgeries is that ICL are minimally intrusive and only require a small incision on your cornea. The ICL procedure also takes less time to perform and is less likely to contribute to developing dry eyes.
If there are other methods of laser eye surgery that you would like to discuss which are not listed here, please contact us for more information.
