Is LASIK Surgery Safe?
At Standard Optical, we utilize advanced LASIK technology to provide our patients with a safe, smooth, and lifechanging experience. Our team is highly skilled at using this equipment to give you a surgery that’s not only more effective than ever before, but also makes an already reliable surgery even safer!
Keeping LASIK Safe with Advanced Technology
LASIK is one of the most common procedures performed in the world today, and we make sure it’s exceptionally safe for you at Standard Optical. We use the VISX Star S4 IR® excimer laser system with wavefront-guided technology to deliver our patients a LASIK experience that is both comfortable and exceptionally customized to their specific needs. Since we can tailor our treatment to your unique eye, this highly specialized laser lets us precisely correct the vision of patients whether they have myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), or astigmatism.
Personalized LASIK Experiences. Optimal Comfort and Outcomes
The wavefront-guided technology of our VISX Star S4 IR® system lets our team create a unique map of your eye and its specific characteristics. This map is sent directly to the equipment used in your LASIK surgery to enhance its precision and accuracy. These aren’t the only personalized “waves” you’ll benefit from — patients control the soundwaves during surgery at Standard Optical, as we let each patient make their own customized playlist for their procedure.
What to Expect from Your LASIK Surgery
Our experienced surgeons and staff are experts at walking patients through the LASIK process, so there’s never any uncertainty. After we’ve measured your eye using our wavefront-guided technology, we’ll use the VISX Star S4® to gently reshape your cornea. The whole process is faster than ever: typically, surgery will only take about 10 minutes per eye, and you’ll need a ride home afterwards, but you’ll begin noticing some results almost immediately. There may be mild visual distortion or discomfort in the hours and days following your surgery, but these symptoms are minor and should clear up quickly.
Am I a Candidate for LASIK?
Most adults who are motivated to see clearly without eyewear make great candidates! And rest assured, our team wants to set up every patient for successful vision outcomes, so we work diligently to ensure each patient is a good candidate before surgery by checking everything from your vision prescription to your front-of-eye thickness. We are passionate about providing our patients with a lifetime of exceptional vision, from kindergarten to cataracts. And if a patient isn’t a perfect fit for LASIK, that’s OK — we can suggest a procedure that will match their unique needs!
LASIK Vision Correction That’s Affordable
Technology and financing have made LASIK more affordable than ever, especially when you compare it to the cost of eyewear over a lifetime — and we have ways to help you finance. Consultations are always free at Standard Optical to determine if LASIK is a good choice for you, so schedule yours today!
