More About Vision Correction at The LASIK Vision Institute™
At The LASIK Vision Institute™ in Jacksonville, Dr. Insler offers patients personally tailored laser vision correction. By using the technologically advanced VISX CustomVue wavefront laser system available at the Jacksonville office, he is able to give patients precise vision correction results.
Before starting the LASIK procedure, Dr. Insler determines each patient’s refractive error with the help of the sophisticated wavefront computer-guided diagnostic system. This innovative system allows him to identify higher order aberrations, the extremely subtle eye errors that other ophthalmologists without wavefront technology tend to miss. Dr. Insler then utilizes the diagnostic data to adjust the excimer laser, which he will use to reshape each patient’s corneas during LASIK surgery.
The initial step in the LASIK procedure is for Dr. Insler to make a miniscule flap in the cornea, using a microkeratome. Through this flap, the laser eye surgeon accesses the underlying corneal tissue and re-contours it with the excimer laser. In doing so, he is able to improve the refractive error that is causing farsightedness, nearsightedness and/or astigmatism. Once the surgeon is satisfied with the newly shaped cornea, he gently puts the corneal flap back in its original position. The flap naturally re-seals itself to the eye, without a need for stitches.
Those who undergo LASIK in Jacksonville with Dr. Insler do not usually feel any pain during the procedure. Not to mention, LVI surgeons use LASIK technology that delivers 20/20 or better vision within a year to 98 percent of patients, and many patients no longer need prescription glasses or contact lenses for clear vision.
