More About Vision Correction at Austin Eye
At Austin Eye LASIK is performed using the all-laser IntraLASIK surgery (custom iLASIK) technique. This procedure combines leading-edge diagnostic equipment with bladeless LASIK technology for customized treatments and optimal vision correction results and safety.
To perform iLASIK surgery, the eye surgeons at Austin Eye first use a wavefront measurement device to obtain a unique corneal map of each eye that identifies even the most subtle refractive errors. Next, a femtosecond laser is used to create the corneal flap. Then the detailed wavefront map is used to guide an excimer laser, which reshapes the cornea, thereby bringing clear vision into focus. Following surgery, the corneal flap is placed in its original position to protect the eye during the healing process. Patients who undergo custom iLASIK often experience improved vision within the next 24 hours and are able to see better at all distances, often without the need for glasses or contact lenses.
