Discover how LASIK frees you from glasses and contacts

LASIK will suit you if:

  • You wish to end or reduce your dependence on wearing contact lenses or glasses.
  • You are 18 or older.
  • For at least a year, you’ve had a stable eye prescription.
  • You have no additional health issues affecting your eyes beyond your refractive error.
  • You do not show symptoms of glaucoma or cataracts.

The all-laser approach

Memorial Eye Institute was the first practice in Central PA, and one of the first in the country to offer all-laser LASIK. We utilize two exciting technological advances, the WaveLight FS200 femtosecond laser and the WaveLight ALLEGRETTO WAVE™ excimer laser so that our eye surgeon can provide the highest quality vision possible to our patients.

LASIK

Laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK), has revolutionized vision correction, allowing people to achieve crisp and clear eyesight in a matter of hours. This procedure uses an excimer laser that reshapes your cornea – making it flatter or steeper as required to correct conditions such as nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. The recovery time associated with LASIK is relatively short, with some patients reporting a feeling of dry eye – but this usually calms down after a month1https://iovs.arvojournals.org/article.aspx?articleid=2717220#:~:text=Post%2DLASIK%20dry%20eye%20usually,than%201%20year%20after%20LASIK.. Aside from this, so many of our patients find that their improved vision is noticeable shortly after surgery!

The LASIK risks include:

  • Short-term dry eye after surgery
  • Under or overcorrections
  • Flap disruption or wrinkling
  • Inflammation
  • Infection
  • Temporary ocular discomfort

Options and alternatives include:

LASIK has the highest patient satisfaction of any elective procedure with the vast majority of patients seeing 20/20 or better.
