What is Laser Eye Surgery?
Laser eye surgery is a corrective surgery for a variety of vision defects, including myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism. Patients with these conditions are forced to deal with the perpetual costs and inconvenience of eyeglasses and contact lenses. LASIK and other laser eye surgeries often completely eliminate the need for prescription correction and provide permanent solutions through affordable, painless procedures.
How Does LASIK Work?
The treatment is remarkably fast. After a corneal flap is created, the computer-guided laser emits cool pulses of ultra-violet rays to cleanly and precisely remove a small amount of tissue programmed exactly to your required prescription. A small layer, no thicker than a human hair, is removed to correct the curvature of the front of your eye. The result is dramatically improved clear vision, and the majority of patients are able to drive the next day.
Am I a LASIK Candidate?
Patients are eligible for LASIK if:
- They are over 20 years old.
- They are in good health. This includes lack of degenerative or autoimmune diseases, as well as absence of any condition that could affect the healing process.
- They have experienced stable vision for more than a year. In many cases, vision has not stabilized until a patient is at least 20 years old.
- They are not pregnant.
- Their vision defect is treatable with LASIK surgery

What are the Risks?
Laser vision correction has passed extensive scrutiny from public health agencies, medical professionals, NASA and the armed services. As with all medical procedures, you should discuss any risks associated with laser vision correction with your eye doctor. It is comforting to note that the first patient to ever receive laser vision correction is still seeing 20/20 without complications. Perfect Sense has among the best results in the country with the vast majority of patients achieving 20/20 vision. With advanced, custom, wavefront-guided treatments, many patients achieve even better results.
