Is Bladeless LASIK Right for You?
Your Personalized LASIK Experience
Your eyes are special; your LASIK procedure should be too. LASIK correction at Florida Eye Institute conforms to the specific shape and needs of your eyes using the revolutionary Allegretto WaveLight® refractive laser to improve farsightedness, nearsightedness, or astigmatism.
The WaveLight® system combines the best of two highly advanced lasers into one integrated, blade-free LASIK experience.
- First, a corneal flap is created using the FDA-approved femtosecond laser. The femtosecond laser creates extremely precise flaps by producing tiny bubbles inside the cornea 1/10,000 of an inch in diameter. The femtosecond cannot penetrate into the eye beyond the cornea.
- Next, the Allegretto WaveLight® refractive laser reshapes the cornea for clear, focused vision; conforming to your ideal specifications.
- Finally, the flap is put back in place to heal as a natural bandage, without sutures.
Exceptional Results You’ll See
- Bladeless femtosecond LASIK surgery is FDA approved to treat the broadest range of vision
- imperfections possible; mild to severe nearsightedness, farsightedness, and various types of astigmatism.
- NASA approved the use of bladeless femtosecond LASIK for their astronauts.
- 93% of nearsighted patients have 20/20 vision or better after LASIK.
Bladeless LASIK is very affordable – especially with our fleyenancing payment plans. Monthly payments per eye are often less than a cable TV or cell phone bill.
PRK vs. LASIK
Laser Refraction Options
Some patients are better candidates for vision correction procedures known as advanced surface treatments or PRK.
*Important LASIK Patient Safety Information:
Laser assisted in-situ keratomileusis (LASIK) can only be performed by a trained physician and is specified for reduction or elimination of myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism as indicated within the product labeling.
Laser refractive surgery is contraindicated with:
1. Collagen vascular, autoimmune, or immunodeficiency disease
2. Pregnancy or nursing
3. Keratoconus or abnormal corneal topography
4. Certain medications: isotretinoin (Accutane®) and amiodarone hydrochloride (Cordarone®).
Potential side effects of laser refractive surgery may include glare, dry eye, or other visual anomalies. LASIK uses a femtosecond laser that cuts a flap on the surface of the cornea; potential side effects may include flap related complications. Consult with your eye care professional and Patient Information Booklet (available at consultation) regarding the potential risks and benefits of laser refractive surgery. Results may vary for each patient.
